I cannot ask on FB because i dont want DH to find out. I want to get him a DVR for his birthday. Do I get it through my cable provider or do I need to get a box, like TiVo?? And is there a difference? I see on my cable box i have a DVR function but it doesnt work so I guess I would have to set it up/pay for it. Should I do that or should I get one thats sold seperately and if I get something like TiVo do i still have to pay for that service through my cable provider??

We have Verizon FIOS, and I don't know if it's the same for everyone, but ours is part of our cable box.  It is part of our cable package.  I would call your cable provider and find out.  You may just need to add the function and they may be able to upgrade your cable box from your home, or they may need to provide you with another one.   Hope this helps, I know things can vary from one provider to another.

That would be something you get through your cable provider .. they have certain plans for that.

We used to have one and we had to get it through our cable provider. Not sure how TiVo works though.

 I would suggest getting it through your service provider. You could call and ask how they would handle that. They would install it, so you wouldn't have to worry about it being incompatable. Let them know that you're thinking of getting one from someone else, and they may give you an incentive to get it from them.

my brother has TiVo and hates it, he is selling it and getting a DVR. DVR is through your cable company
