VCRs, DVD-Rs, and DVRs, oh my.

I was recently in the market for a new VCR. No, you didn't read wrong, I did use the words "new" and "VCR" in the same sentence. As of yet, I have not upgraded my entertainment options to the digital recording mediums. Other than DVRs, I don't really see the advantages. Yes, there is a picture quality issue, but for stuff I record on a daily basis, that's not my biggest concern. But, back to the VCR hunt. Now, VCRs are no longer being built with T.V. tuner. This means that without a cable box you can't program the stupid thing. Sort of defeats the purpose, you know. I was just curious, what do most people use for their recording needs? Am I the only one surprised by the change in technology?

Yeah, they do want to end the VCR. I just wish they would present us with an alternative that worked just as well. So far, I have yet to find anything that compares. Grrr, bad technology companies. Bad. :)
