Advertisements I just got a Pioneer Elite 57H unit. I do not have home phone service, we just use cell phones now. I do have cable internet and a wired router, not WiFi. The Elite only has a USB port on back, not standard ethernet port. Now I know I can do things like take the DVR over to a friends house who has phone service for updates, but will this unit allow my to connect a USB to female ethernet adapter dongle and then run an ethernet cord from the dongle to my router for the updates? Or will that type of adapter not transfer data that way and I MUST purchase a wireless adapter for the Elite's USB port and also setup a wireless network in my house OR get phone service just to get updates? I can't understand why I couldn't just use a dongle to convert the USB port, but a guy at Best Buy(over the phone) told me that he didn't think it could work that way. BTW, what is your opinion of the now older Elite 57H? It apparently only connects your digital cable box to the DVR via S-video, plus it's not HD ready. I got a great deal on this unit, $30 without remote. Would I be better off selling it for about $275 on Ebay and getting a newer DVR/DVD burner unit and which one is the best deal for the price? Can I use any universal remote with a DVR unit?
