So, I'm totally satisfied w/the reliability of my TiVo HD (other than the stock hard drive going bad/getting corrupted once). The stock drive's no longer in use. I've been a TiVo user since 2001 (Series 1s, Series 2 DTiVo for 5 years, and a Series 2 SA for a bit, besides my TiVo HD). I got sucked into going (back) to D* via some reps at Best Buy but the install hasn't happened yet, so I can back out. I'd be going w/the HR34, mainly for more disk space, On Demand and lower monthly fee (than the THR22). Would I be disappointed w/the reliability and buginess of the HR34 vs. what I'm used to? Serious bugs and problems requiring reboots to resolve on TiVo HD (and my prior units) are almost unheard of. Same goes w/missed recordings. http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=209109 re: the latest software release for the HR34 gives me pause. Any satisfied TiVo users make the leap to the HR34 or THR22? Bad idea? I am bummed that I will no longer be back to transfer shows to my PC to archive them. I use kmttg for that and a someone time consuming workflow to archive to AVCHD right now. I still need to run some numbers to see if it's worth the savings of ditching Comcrap and going back to D*.
