Weeks after offering the DTVPal DVR at discounted prices, Dish Network decided to pull the plug on said device without any plans in the pipeline for a replacement. It seemed as though its demise was brought about by inadequate marketing and advertising, not to mention features that didn’t rock the world compared to its rivals such as TiVo. After all, users had to go through the hassle of scheduling recordings by time slot and channel instead of the show itself, not to mention receiving limited guide data over-the-air. Hopefully legacy support for the DTVPal DVR will continue for some time to come before the plug is pulled for good.
