Anyways, I want to hold off on a PVR until I move into our new house which is still needs to be built. It will prolly be done in a year or so.
I'm just looking for a short term solution right now.
Can the standard digital box/reciever tell the VCR to tape the games once you you hook it up to the VCR?
Nope...you gota program your VCR to record at a specific time but it will record what ever chanel is selected on the the digital box at the time(unless you can get RDS on basic cable). And once the recording is started what ever you do on the digital box will be recorded on the VCR.
Anyway it's still to early to tell what RDS's policy will be next year. They change from year to year the way and time they replay the games.
