ReplayTV – the box goes away

I somehow missed hearing that ReplayTV is getting out of the DVR hardware business. They’re just going for the software. Of course, my unit will keep working (until their software thing fails to take, and they go out of business, taking the necessary Electronic Program Guide service with them.) And it almost certainly means that there won’t be any new features added to our existing systems… and it’s been a fair while since there were any software upgrades.

Still, DVR is a thing that works, and from what I’ve seen, the cable company versions still don’t measure up to the stand-alone ones. It’s a shame to see this stuff go away.

  1. Yeah, and Tivo is only now getting features the Replays have had for years now. That new HD one is looking nice though. I’ll miss commercial skipping and being able to send shows to my family members easily though.
