The Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR with Joey

Who makes it: Dish Network

What it costs: Depends on the package

Why we like it: Dish wowed us last year with its Blockbuster streaming service. The satellite provider raised the stakes for competitors this year with the Hopper and Joey multi-room DVR setup, which allows for as many as 2,000 hours of recordings. The system's PrimeTime Anytime software automatically records prime-time TV from the four major networks, and the accompanying AutoHop feature can be set to skip commercials on many of those shows. Advertisers and networks may hate it (they're suing), but we're hooked.
