ReplayTV RTV5504 (40-hour DVR)


Editor's note: Replay has discontinued its hardware products and moved to a PC software model. However, the company continues to support users of the set-top box DVRs such as the one reviewed here, and they remain a worthwhile solution for advanced...

Pauses live TV; controls cable and satellite boxes; built-in video- and photo-networking features allow live video streaming between units; convenient ShowNav program navigation; digital audio and progressive-scan video outputs.

No more program sharing over the Internet; can't record two shows simultaneously; can't stream MP3 audio.

Multiroom video streaming and third-party PC software make the ReplayTV 5500 series a worthwhile alternative to TiVo for advanced DVR users.

unmatched versatility

No hi-def version

We purchased our first Replay TV brand new from a retail store, when 3 months later it broke down. 6, yes SIX refurbished replay tv's later, (1 year) the company finally sent us one that WAS not refurbished when we threatened to call Consumer Affairs....

Great, if you can get it to work

Programming goes down every Sunday, must reboot

"It will change your life."


I've had one for 4 years and recommend it to everyone. Check out this undocumented feature that TiVo doesn't have: hit a number and then the 30-sec skip button and it goes forward by that many minutes. Works with the 7-sec backward button too.

Slow channel changing

"Still Best Out There, if Only HD"


Best Logical Interface, not cutesy. Networks in a flash, share, shows over the internet. Online software to move shows to your PC easily. BURN AWAY

Not HD. If it was HD compatable it would RULE.....
