with Cable , AIR , Or Satellite. The other is Humax with the

are the same except the Case Design. We service ALL tivo's

or Sony) were made by Amtek but the brands, faceplate and
remote are the only difference, same software, same

Consider this when buying the Lifetime Service for Tivo, (1)
It takes over 2 years at 12.95 to get a payback. (2) Your
Tivo is only under the factory warrantee for 90 days, after
that you must pay from 100.00 to 200.00 for a exchange. **
Please be aware that this lifetime service subscription is
tied to the serial number of the recorder, not to your name
-- in other words, it is for the lifetime of this specific
recorder, not your lifetime. If you choose to sell or give
this recorder to someone else, the subscription will remain
with this recorder. The lifetime subscription can't be
transferred to another recorder of a different make, model,
or manufacturer -- each recorder purchased requires its own
subscription. But, don't worry: If you repair, replace or
upgrade the storage capacity of this recorder through
DigitalRecorder.com the lifetime subscription will still be
I add The RAM Myself?[Back
The RAM is 50 PIN D-Ram no bigger than 1 inch long that is
surface mounted to the board. This is done using a machine
that heats all the contact points at once and never touches
the RAM or board.
about the Upgrade Kits, Do I need any software?[Back
NO, Upgrade kits are truly Plug and Play. We will guide you
through the installation process right over the phone.
You Upgrade Direct TV Tivo's ?[Back
YES, we can upgrade ALL Sony, Phillips, Hughes and Samsung
Satellite Tivo to 445 Hours Best Quality.
is the warranty on the Hard Drives?[Back
That’s the great part of your upgraded Tivo. The drive
carry a separate warranty for up to 2 years, if your drive
fails within the warranty period, send us the Tivo or drives
and we will replace for a small format fee.
the Series 2 combo include dual tuners?[Back
No, Only the Direct Tv Tivos have dual tuners, the drawback
is the will only work with Direct TV and nothing else, If
you want to use any cable you need a Standalone Tivo, this
will work with Satellite, Cable or Air channels.. If you
have cable you can split the signal, one to the TV and one
to the Tivo, then you can watch 1 show and record another.
makes the Series 2 hardware better than current units?[Back
To start with, there is faster processing power and a better
graphics engine. This means the Series 2 should be faster
than current models. The Series 2 units also contain 2 USB
2.0 ports that allow for broadband connectivity and
transferring your digital photos for slide show
will HDTV for TiVo be available?[Back
HDTV PVR's are available now.. Please see out Satellite
Tivos section under PRODUCTS
thought the older 5000 were not available anymore, are your
5000 New or Used??[Back
All our Replay’s are brand new Unless otherwise stated..
Is the 5500 newer than the 50000… technically YES but
really what is the difference NONE, except you don’t get
the Commercial Advance and Show Sharing features.. We
purchased the remaining stock of Replays 5000 because we
know this feature will be sought after and very popular.
is ReplayTV ?[Back
ReplayTV 4000/4500 and 5000 is the first and only networked
Digital Video Recorder (DVR). With a DVR, you can record
your favorite television programs onto a hard disk
automatically, every time they're on. So now, you watch your
shows when you're ready, not when the network executives
decide to air them. You can also pause, instant replay,
rewind and slo-mo live television. There's no videotape to
bother with, and no chance you'll ever miss your favorite
shows again. The ReplayTV 4000 does all of this, charges no
monthly fee, and adds broadband connectivity and a huge
array of high-powered features you won't find anywhere else.
You used to be able to fast forward through commercials, or
use QuickSkip™ to jump right over them, but with the
new ReplayTV 4000s you can use Commercial Advance® to
simply playback your recorded shows without commercials.
There's also a new feature for storing and viewing digital
photos on your television. You can show whole slide shows to
your family and friends in the living room, right from your
ReplayTV. And with ReplayTV's new high-speed Ethernet
connection, you can even share programs between multiple
ReplayTV's in your home or send programs to your friends who
also have ReplayTV 4000s.
does ReplayTV use my Ethernet connection?[Back
ReplayTV uses the high-speed Ethernet connection to connect
to your home network. This means that your ReplayTV is now
connected to your PC and to the Internet. If you have more
than one ReplayTV, they'll be connected to each other, too.
This means, you can now share recorded programming between
multiple ReplayTV's within your home and even share your
recordings with friends who also own ReplayTV 4000s. The
Ethernet connection can also be used to transfer digital
photos from your PC to your ReplayTV and once on your
ReplayTV, you can watch digital slide shows on your
can I watch a program in the bedroom that was recorded on my
ReplayTV in the living room?[Back
First you'll need to have (2) ReplayTV'S 4500 or 5000 hooked
up to each TV. They can't be mixed, so either all 4500 or
all 5000 series. These ReplayTV's will be networked through
the Ethernet connections, so you'll be able to use the
ReplayTV remote control to scroll back and forth between
"bedroom" Replay guide and your "living
room" Replay guide. Choose whatever show you want to
watch. It doesn't matter on which hard drive that show has
actually been recorded, because the ReplayTVs are connected
through your home network. only same seires Replay's can be
linked in this manner and not 4500 to 5000 and Ect.
don't have a home network. Will I need to get one?[Back
NO. ReplayTV's are enabled by an Ethernet connection or
standard phone line. The most common use is to get your
guide data 10 times faster than with a standard phone line.
You can also us a popular shareware program called
dvAarchive, it allows you to connect your Replay to your PC
for editing, viewing and transfer of all your videos.
is the difference between the 4500 and 5000 series[Back
The 4500/5000 are basically the same, the only difference is
the 4000/4500 have a VGA output to connect to a PC or HDTV
for 480 Lines of resolution for a better picture, but you
can get the same thing using the 5000 component output. The
other difference it the remote and the physically size a the
4500 are bit bigger. The 4500 can go up to 500 ours using
(2) 250gb drives an is designed for 2 drives, But the 5000
series needs a special bracket for the 2nd drive. Also they
are not compatible with each other, so a 5000 can't talk to
a 4500 using the Ethernet connection.
is the difference between the new 5500 series and the 5000
The new 5500 series has new features and improvements over
the older 5000 for scheduling shows and automatic
recordings. Because of the lawsuit between the movie
industry and the Old Sonic Blue the new owners of Replay tv
have decided not to include the most popular feature,
"Commercial Skip" also taken out of the 5500 is
the ability to do show sharing over the internet, allowing
you to send shows to another ReplayTV across the country or
across the globe. Even though the Automatic Commercial
Advance is gone, the neat 30 second advance button is still
a great feature, press 3 times and you instantly at the
start of the show again.
I record on channel and watch another?[Back
Yes and No, If you have Cable or a Cable Box you simply
split the cable connections our of the wall or cable box,
one connection goes to the Replay TV and the other
connection straight to the TV, when you want to pause and
use the feature of the Replay you view from that source and
when you want to watch a live show without Replay TV the
switch to that source, remember you have a built in tuner in
the Relay TV and in the TV., Most PVR owners have little
need to record one show and watch another because watching
LIVE TV means you must suffer through the commercials and
you cant pause TV. If you have cable with or without a cable
box you can hook up your cable to the TV and the other goes
to the Replay, If you choose to watch something live, say
like the news, then just view cable on the other source like
the built in cable tuner that’s in your TV, the other
connection goes to the replay TV so it can continue to
record your favorite shows
your Replay TV's New Used or Refurbished?[Back
All our Replay TV are NEW unless otherwise stated in BOLD
PRINT. We take brand new Replay TV's, remove the small hard
drive and install either one or two new bigger hard drives
that carry a 1-2 year warranty. If your drive fails within
the warranty period we will send you out a replacement, or
you can send your unit in and we will do it for you for a
the difference between the NEW Replay TV 5500 series and the
older 5000 an 4500 series?[Back
The Main difference is that you get less with the 5500 ..
How can this be? Well Sonic Blue is the old owners of Replay
TV and they got sued by the Movie and TV industry for the
great features of Commercial Advance and Show Sharing,, The
movie industry felt that automatically skipping commercials
with out pressing the FF key on the remote deprived the
industry of revenue, So the new owners decided not to
include these features and avoid a fight, what that means is
if you can get you hands on the 5000 or 4500 then you get
commercial advance and show sharing and pay less. That’s
It so you see if you buy the 5500 you get less and not more.

HUMAX has the best TiVo with the Built in Pioneer Burner
using DVD -R Media for the most compatibility among most DVD
Players. You can get one starting at 80 hours and go to over
the deal on Replay TV and the Subscription changes?[Back
UPDATE: Replay tv is no longer making any Hardware or
producing any Replay tv's .. We are service ALL Replay tv in
your service department.. Replay TV was purchased about 1
year ago for 44 Million from the bankruptcy courts. Replay
was called Sonic Blue and is now under the new ownership of
Digital Networks.. They have had good sales so far and seem
to be a viable company ready to compete with Tivo.. They had
some confusion about the subscription service.. From the
changes of 9.95 monthly fee and 250.00 for the lifetime they
were changed to 3 Years Service for 250.00 and .99 cents per
month for 12 months paid up front for 3 years.. Kind of
goofy we thought and they have changes to the Tivo style of
fees and now exactly match Tivo fees of 299.95 for the
lifetime and 12.95 monthly.. If you purchased the 3 years
they will convert it to the lifetime if you ask them..
UPDATE.. Replay TV and TiVo both offer discounts on 2nd thru
5th additional units, It's only $6.95 for a monthly
activation as long as you have at least 1 lifetime

have 2 cables coming from your satellite dish, you can split
1 feed, it doesn’t work like regular cable, you must have
a dual LNB also.
Brands Are Offer for Satellite? Right now (2) are
available, the Phillips DSR 7000 and the Hughes HDVR2, and
no they are not HDTV compatible, it will take 20GB of drive
space to store 2 hours of a show so if the HDTV receivers
hit the market you can be sure they will have 300GB drives
Will HDTV for TiVo be available?[Back
HDTV PVR's are here Now, The problem is HDTV requires a huge
amount of drive space.. It's like 30 Hours of video on a
250GBdrive.. it will record in variable rate meaning if the
show is not HDTV it will use less hours. The brand will be
Hughes and may have only 1 tuner. They also come with a
hefty price tag for both the Units and the service as direc
tv get a premium for this.. I would wait for another 6
is the Difference between Satellite Tivo and Standalone Tivo[Back
Satellite Tivo has the satellite built in to the tivo.. This
is Good and Bad.. Good because you have (2) tuner ability to
record 2 shows at the same time. + Dolby Digital these are
futures that standalone tivo’s can’t do.. The Bad is
Satellite Tivo only works with DirecTV and nothing else..
Standalone Tivo gives you the freedom to choose Cable, AIR
or Satellite. as it only records what it see coming through
the input. So a standalone can record any Video signal no
matter where it comes from, DVD player, VCR , Cable Box,
Satellite Box ect..
