Sorry for another one vs the other thread, but I have specific concerns that need answers. After doing more research I have come across various issues between these three models. Concerns/issues: 1. OTA performance; the consensus seems to be the Premiere is worse than either Series 3, 2. SDV; Is the Premiere any better than either Series 3 with TWC systems with their TA? 3. Overall problems with basic functions; recording, playback and Guide usage for example. I don't envision doing any Internet video watching. I may want to do transfers to a PC. 4. Other than the display which many seem to like, would the HD be a better choice over the original 'three' since it is more 'green' and has some newer components? The Series three are attractive for the possible better OTA performance and price. The Premiere is attractive for being considerable newer with the assumption SDV with the problematic Tuning Adapter would work better. Coming from a 7 year old designed DVR, I'm concerned about getting a 5 0r 6 year old design vs one that is only two years.
