I was curious if anyone was using a battery powered UPS with their PVR/Sat.receiver? I just ordered a DVR from Dish, and plan to use a small (350 V/A)UPS. I understand there is a remote possiblity that programming data could be lost if power is removed while the HD Is writing to the disk. Technically, there is no reason a satellite system can not be kept fully alive during a power failure as long as the PVR/receiver is still powered up. Considering no pc fans or monitor hooked up, the UPS should be keep it alive a reasonable time. Of course you can't watch, the TV would suck the UPS down in no time!
