We quit Comcast Tv and now DirectTv. When cancelling DirectTv(satellite) they required us to return the individual room set top boxes, that's all. Said we could keep the tuner, dvr, and remotes. Fat lot of good the remotes are since they control the set top boxes! But I digress, anyone know of any use in cordcutting for the tuner and dvr? We're running a Roku stick now thru Xfinity internet. With all the people bailing on cable and satellite there's got to be thousands of these devices left to the consumers to repurpose, and I'm not a real tech savvy guy, but I can read, have all my fingers and 2 opposable thumbs.
They can't really be repurposed. You can get them to an electronic recycling center so they don't end up in a landfill. They will eventually make their way to China where the cost of labor makes disassembly and recycling economically feasible,
