Would like to see Hulu added as a content provider.
Summary: We've been using our SVR-2000 since they first came out. We've had a Hi-Def TV for about a year and it was time to upgrade. When TiVo offered us an upgrade package it was too good to pass up. Overall we're pleased with TiVo Premiere. In addition to being a great Hi-Def DVR, it offers several other ways to access content, including YouTube and Netflix. It has plenty of recording capacity for our needs. The remote works well from anywhere in the room and controls power and volume on the TV.
Moving from the SVR-2000 to TiVo Premiere is a bit like arriving from the stone age. Being able to record and watch HD content is a big improvement. But having two tuners eliminates many conflicts we had with our old TiVo. There are many other improvements including menu navigation, being able to add an overrun buffer for sports events. It even has a power meter to aid in adjusting the antenna orientation.
Here's a hot flash: Hulu Plus coming is apparently coming to TiVo Premiere too (Hulu Plus subscription extra).
