  Freevo: Freedom For Your TV
Subject:   On the subject of cost

HW: Why should anybody bother with building a digital video recorder, when you can buy a TiVo for much less money and hassle?


I think the developers responses were good for this question but they missed an important fact. TiVo's services cost (I think) $15/month per box. I have a friend who has 3 televisions and 2 activated tivo boxes. At that rate a year costs roughly $360. How many years do you want to have DVR/media center functions?


$300 for a TiVo
$180/yr * 3 = 540
-------
$850
