I don't see much on this model. I think it's a rare gem that's overlooked. In my home office, I have a small TV, and no need for HD. I bought one of these and a wire to hook it to the DTA (I'm on Comcast where everything is encrypted now). The TiVo talks to the DTA and I'm able to record the 2-90 channels. Right now, the DTAs are still no extra cost. I just grabbed another one with lifetime, for $75 shipped, to gift to my sister-in-law. No TiVo monthly charge, no outlet fee. And a fresh hard drive on my shelf if/when my own drive fails, so not like she needs to worry if an old device breaks. I am getting old, paid $800 for my first VCR. But I digress. Just making conversation, wondering if anyone else uses a S2 in a small room that has no need for more.
