Hey Michelle - so you need a box for every TV?
Can you tape more than one show at once?
and how many hours would you (all) suggest if we just have one box?
Pretend I’m Michelle…
Yes, a box for every tv.
With my DVR, I can tape 2 shows at once.
I guess how many hours depends on how many shows you want to tape and how long you want to keep them. Think of it like the harddrive on your computer - the more hours, the more you can save. I think ours saves about 30 hours. Also, high def, if you have that, takes up more memory. We don’t get high def, so the 30 hrs. is for ‘regular’ tv.
Ours gets the tv guide thru the cable since we rent the machine from the cable co.
