Pros tivo and dvd in one unit, output on component, s-video, and composite. easy set-up, free basic tivo service.
Cons switching to progressive output disables output from composite and s-video. the progressive switch should only effect the component outputs. but it affects the composite and s-video as well.
Pros Combined progressive-scan DVD player and Tivo machine saves space; Tivo menus easy to use; simple to switch from live TV to Tivo to DVDs; progressive output
Cons Mediocre remote control has confusing layout and isn't very good as a universal remote; DVD player slow to respond to eject command; must pay for Tivo Plus service; long setup time; Tivo playback quality isn't great when recording from cable and playing b
Pros A very nice combination of Tivo and a DVD player. You can watch DVD while Tivo records. The unit has lots of outputs including component video, s-video, RCA jacks, etc. Networkable via USB ports.
Cons I wish there was a favorite-channels capability.
