View Full Version : Stand alone Tivo or DirecTivo?
01-08-2006, 10:27 AM
I am going to get a Tivo stand alone box or a DirecTV box w/ Tivo in it. I want to use Tivo2Go and all the wifi functions. I plan on hacking the box to enable the functions I want. What gives me the most options? Which type should I get? Suggestions?

Here is 2 cents of opinion from a former standalone S2 user... your mileage may vary. :)
If Tivo2Go is high on your list then you need to go standalone. Other than that, try to find a DirecTivo box and hack away.
It was nice going the DTivo path as it saves me money in the long run since I was paying for Tivo service month-to-month.

plus with DTivo you get
reduced DVR fees
and with hacks everything the Standalones can do with the exception of the newer HME engine stuff from Yahoo.
