"Buy TIVO and take a time warp trip to the 21st Century"5.0 starson by hotshopper1
Pros: Beats the cable DVR hands down with all the extras provided.
Record TWO shows while watching one already recorded one
Holds lots of recordings
Tivo Central page for HD TV is awesome
Easy to find "extra" recordings in yur genre
Same TIVO quality
Cons: Sometimes takes a few seconds to continue response when it's searching. Not a problem, but just be aware. There is so much going on in that little box it's a wonder how it does it at all.
Summary: I couldn't stand the "dark ages" any longer after we had Tivo for years on 3 of our TVs, then changed to the cable company DVR boxes after we changed our TV service. I bought a Tivo Premiere XL box and now I feel like I'm in the 21st century again. It's even so much better than our Series 2 (which I loved) It makes the local cable DVRs seem like the old eight track tapes after using MP3s. All I can say is Thank You Tivo, you've made my entertainment world a joy again!
