I am wondering if anyone can lead me in the right direction here. I have comcast cable, in the Chicago area, and I have an HD receiver which has the hard drive and all inside it for DVR service, but I don't pay the 13.95/mo for the service. I assume that it isn't possible to activate the service somehow without Comcast knowing, which leads me to my real question. I also have a DirecTV DVR (sorry, but I'm not sure of the model numbers of either right now. If someone tells me this might be possible, I'll get them), and I am wondering if it is at all possible to somehow adapt that machine so that I can use it to record TV, while still using my Comcast machine as the receiver. Sorry if I am being completely stupid, this is not exactly my area of expertise.
Thanks for any help
