Premiere 4 or XL4

I have decided, after fighting with Comcast and refusing to pay them 1 penny more, to dump my Humax and my HD and buy a Premiere.

The only question is the 4 or the 4XL.

I already have an external 1TB HD to hang off the P4.

So the question I think becomes 1 large HD in the XL or 2 drives with the 4.

Other than THX, is there any benefit to one over the other?

Thanks.

My Vote:
TiVo Premiere XL4 TCD758250 - $350.00 / Sold by Yogi Computers
http://www.amazon.com/Premiere-TCD75...dp/B005TI1ILS/

For the extra $100:
You get 2TB 317Hrs HD and the better Glo Remote.

Never heard of Yogi and their reviews are a little snarky.

4.8 stars out of 5 and 96% Positive ratings is pretty good.

Agreed. Get the xl4. TiVo the other day had a sale , 350 for xl4 and free wifi adapter for 350. If you can , look around or even call TiVo and tell them you can a xl4, they can usually throw something in...worth a try anyways.

That Sale was not such a good deal directly from TiVo for Arizona residents. TiVo charged tax on the value of the entire bundle, including tax on the lifetime service, which if purchased separately there is no tax on the lifetime service.

So that was an additional $65 from TiVo for tax, versus no tax from Amazon.

When I spoke to them today they could not match that sale.
