I have the sony and LOVE IT!! Remember that this box works ONLY with cable and OTA just like the upcoming Tivo3. If you want a box to work with DTV, you are limited to HR10-250 or coming later this year the HR-20 with mpeg4.
If you can switch to cable - there are several Hd DVRs coming which should increase features and decrease prices without locking you into a 2 year contract like DTV does.
Remember Tivo is just a brand. I have used or are currently using replay tv, ultimate tv, directtivo, HDTivo, comcast motorola 6412 seriesIII and the sony DHG HDD500. So far I am LEAST PLEASED with the tivo interface. It is the SLOWEST OF ALL BY FAR (even with the 6.2 update) and the only interface that makes you leave the show you are watching in order to surf different guides or change settings.
Since I now have cable I am looking forward to several HD Dvrs that are soon to be released including an HD DVR by Panasonic that will have 3 tuners. TIVO, Sony and LG should also have their dual tuner HD Dvrs out this year as well. You will have the best choice of HD DVRs in the future with cable. Hopefully that is an option for you.
