DVR newbie here
I just want to record shows to watch later. I love the idea of a device that does that using a hard drive instead of tapes like with a VCR but I don't want to pay an ongoing subscription. I've been looking all over the Internet for information about this but it's all so very confusing to me. I'm not the most technologically inclined person so could someone explain to me, or at least point me in the right direction, about DVRs?
I can only conclude I'm paying off karma at a vastly accelerated rate.
