1-A-Week: Week 41: My ReplayTV

Oct 19, 2011 by

I cut the cord a long time ago.  Much to the dismay of my beautiful wife, I was sick of paying so much for our TV cable bill, and was sick of watching so much TV, so I dropped it.  We stopped getting TV, and shortly thereafter I canceled our home phone as well.

One thing I didn’t do at the time was get rid of our old ReplayTV DVR.  Not sure why, but probably because I didn’t want to get behind and mess with all the wires to get it out etc.

Well our old receiver was dying so I had to replace it, so I took the opportunity to clean out the electronics gear and get rid of the old ReplayTV.

This thing was AWESOME back in the day.  They had this sweet commercial advance function that juts automatically skipped all the commercials in your recorded shows.  It was the best, and that is why they were sued out of existence by the wonderful Hollywood studios.  But this DVR was still the best thing around.  I even upgraded it with a bigger hard drive to record more shows.

Sad to see it go, but Its been sitting around collecting dust and not getting any use, so on Craigslist it goes and hopefully someone can use it.

Ben…

1AW is a project by which I’m getting rid of at least 1 thing each week that I do not need, want, or use anymore. Doing at least one thing per week helps me reduce the clutter in my life and make room for what is truly important.

What are you getting rid of this week? Leave a comment and let me know.
