Not sure what to buy

I have a series2 DirectTV DVR, Brand 100, Model R52180 R10, 6.1. I want to add an upgrade kit and networking but confused on what to purchase. Can this model be upgraded?

Can this model be upgraded?

Can this model be upgraded?



"Can" - yes.

"Easily" - no. If you really want to try, go here for more information (be ready to read through many threads and posts).

My suggestion? Purchase one of the following:

  • Hughes HDVR2, SD-DVR40, SD-DVR80, SD-DVR120

  • Philips DSR7000, DSR704, DSR708

  • RCA DVR39, DVR40, DVR80, DVR120

  • Samsung SIR-S4040R, SIR-S4080R, SIR-S4120R



You can find those on eBay. The Philips DSR704 can be purchased from PTVUpgrade. I received one from PTVUpgrade yesterday. Read my comment at the end of this thread.
