Just heard the news, ReplayTV is dead.

Important Announcement!

The ReplayTV Electronic Programming Guide (EPG) Service will be permanently discontinued on July 31, 2011. After this date, owners of ReplayTV DVR units will still be able to manually record analog TV programs, but will not have the benefit of access to the interactive program guide. Effective immediately, monthly billing for the ReplayTV service to remaining customers has been suspended.

The industry conversion to HDTV is complete and ReplayTV DVRs are unable to take advantage of the wealth of HDTV programming. Please contact your service provider for current offerings.

Guess my (2) lifetime(s) is about to end.... :..(

Wonder if its just guide data, or if the other services like time setting, activation, IVS are shutting down as well.

Guess I don't need to be looking to replace the drive in one of my lifetime units.

Replay isn’t dead yet. It’s looking like WiRNS can take over. http://wiki.xmltv.org/index.php/ReplayTV

I’ve migrated my 3k to WiRNS and so far so good.

Step by Step instructions are coming.

Yes it is, doubt Zones would work anymore. And, why should I pay for EPG (the MSN scraper never worked reliably for me), so that my ReplayTVs can automatically record stuff for the sake of answering Poopli requests.

I only watch HD channels now.

I’m ‘The Dreamer’ in the WiRNS code. And, nobody has donated for some time to my keeping rddns.cc around.

But, I have no doubt that WiRNS will be able to completely replace DNNA’s servers for all aspects…work had been done on figuring out the details, in case this day came upon us.

I suppose I’ll have fix my IVS checkers and IVS status icons….

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
