ppartlo, The 9242 also has an OTA tuner, giving you the capability to record 3 programs at one time while watching 2 recorded programs at the same time. You're going to have so much fun!
If for any reason it stops working it is well worth repairing, and for the most part, easily done.
On a side note, you can have up to 6 receivers on account at no additional charge, so when you're rewiring for OTA run another line for the 6131, and you can still access all your recordings on the EHD that way.
If Life is a Highway,...then why is there no end to this dirtroad?
