A step up in broadband and home network-ready DVRs, ReplayTV's 5000 series digital video recorders let you distribute recorded programs within your home and share personal recordings of nonprotected video content with 15 friends and family members who also own 5000 series DVRs.
The ReplayTV 5040 stores 40 hours of programming while letting you pause, replay, and slow down live television--all with no tapes, no timers, and no trouble. This allows you to watch television on your own schedule, free from the constraints of network scheduling, which often pits multiple cool programs head-to-head.
With a cable modem or DSL, the 5040 hooks up for fast and easy broadband video transfers with other broadband-connected 5000 series users. It also lets you share video throughout the house using a built-in Ethernet port and existing home-networking equipment, and it stores digital photos and home movies, letting you see your favorite digital photos on TV. This ReplayTV provides iChannels (which lets you download video content from the Internet) and the Reply Channel Guide, downloaded daily through the broadband connection, which offers a convenient, grid-based list of shows that can be recorded at the touch of a button. The one-time product service activation fee of $299.00 has been paid on this unit and you will never be billed for using this unit ever.
With ReplayTV, there's always something good on, and you don't ever need to be bothered by commercial interruptions again! Topping the charts of user-friendly features, Commercial Advance lets you choose to skip commercial breaks all-together when you playback recorded shows. No fast forward, no remote control interaction at all. Just a split-second "blip" and you're right back into the action. Not bad for starters... and how about all those advanced features for the connected home, like Internet Video Sharing and Room-to-Room Video Streaming? It's all possible, and a whole lot easier than you think.
