And I see the Weaknees warranty is not transferable. I did not realize that.

Here are the terms and conditions of their three year warranty.

The weeknees warranty can't be transferred, but I believe they do support the lifetime transfer.

Yes it did. I upgraded my Premieres in December 2010 and he had supersize working at that point. And I've stuffed my 2TB to the max so it definitely came in handy.

A couple more negatives against the Basic are....

No MoCa
Only 10/100 Ethernet

I use my Elite as an Etherent bridge for the rest of my AV rack, so not having MoCa is kind of a big deal. i know an adapater is only $50 but that's another devices with a blinking light and a power brick I have to put into the rack. So I just bit the bullet and got a Pro. $560 with coupon from Weaknees.

Just as an FYI cause i haven't seen it posted elsewhere -

Got my Roamio Pro yesterday and set it up today. In System info, it states "up to 476 HD hours"

So doesn't look like weaknees supersized the drive. Looks like Tivo is actually underselling the available space?
