With tears welling up, I begin my plan to retire the best DVR ever produced, Ultimate TV from Microsoft.
Over the years, I’ve had 5 of these faithful media servants and they have never disappointed once. Yet as time advances, so does age. A production unit retired itself last week and with little prospec of replacement or repair, I reluctantly decided to begin to phase them out completely.
I do realize that this does make good sense as all but one of the displays in the house are HD capable and my trusty UTV’s were limited to S-Video. And the clincher arrived this weekend in the DirecTV HR20. I like it. I’ll be getting more.
Perhaps my remaining Ultimate TV’s will fine a loving home on craigslist standing resolute to give another lucky geek 8 more years of faithful service.
