That's a trade secret.

Hmm...Well a 3TB drive will still be 3x more than what I have in my upgraded S3 OLED so maybe it's time to pull the trigger. There will be the added benefit of not having to pay $10 for the requisite 2 CableCARDS to run the S3.

I had 2TB in my XL4 and only once saw it breach 90% and that was with a few shows where I had 2-3 full seasons worth. I don't foresee ever filling up 3TB.

But if I were sharing with an entire family I could see where more space might be necessary.

How many season passes do you have? I've got anywhere between 65 and 80 at any given time, though of course only 1/3 - 1/2 of those shows are currently airing at any given time.

It will be nice to have more than 2 tuners, that's for sure. Right now I have to wait for repeat airings and other means to catch the shows that don't record. However, I hated the slow and buggy XL4 so much I returned it within a week of purchase. I decided I liked the S3 menus, clock/OLED display and sleek finish over the promise of 4 tuners.

I have 106 SPs. Quickly scrolling through the SP manager it looks like maybe 1/2 have scheduled recordings. (They're a different color so you can tell)

I'm confused to to why there are Weakness upgraded Pros? The Plus is the same thing with a smaller drive, so why not just start with the Plus? Given the pricing TiVo is offering with upgrade deals and whatnot, I'd say it would be hard to justify the 4TB upgraded Plus over the stock Pro, but if you want the ultimate TiVo, the 4TB Plus/Pro is it...

Some people might want the Pro badge on the front.
