DVR devices have different costs, depending upon brand name and features. You will pay more for a TiVo device with lots of features over a lesser-known brand with few features. Expect to pay anywhere from around 100 dollars to 300 or more. Shop around online and find the device that fits your budget and does the things you want it to do. You can also try auction sites like Ebay, or local classifieds like Craigslist, to get an even better deal on a gently used item.
