    This is exactly why there is not BR drive in the living room. I do rent BR from time to time but its ripped and pushed to the tivo for playback there.

    All content under one consistant interface everywhere in the home. Much higher WAF.

    Even before I dropped cable, Tivo saved me money.

    Buying a used, single-tuner S2 w/ lifetime let me drop my cable package down to "broadcast basic" for $8/month (versus $50/month for 'extended' analog)

    I bought whatever cable shows I wanted via Amazon.

    Then I was lucky enough to win a TivoHD w/ lifetime, so when I bought my first HDTV nearly 5 years ago it was a simply matter to buy an antenna and drop cable.

    Now I get the broadcast networks in HD for free plus I can still buy the cable shows I want from Amazon (HD, commercial-free)

    Netflix for the kids, of course (though we all love Shaun the Sheep!)

    Been on OTA since 8 yrs with just broadcast cable for internet. When I travel, I catch up with cable channels in hotels. I't is a pain to watch - high pitch screetching, ticker overload, and for the most part, trivial content. Broadcast channels have wide viewing and are more mature. Your quality of life may improve if you cut these off.
