just found this community. very cool.
i had 3 Tivo S2's back in the day. when HD first came out, my cable system got HD DVR's before Tivo did, so I jumped on their bandwagon.
Once the S3's came down in price(with rebates recently), and the addition of the Tivo HD, I returned all three of my cable HD DVR's.
I was so sick of getting the "not enough space to record this program", right when it was supposed to start the recording. sitting down to watch the Colts game I recorded, only to get the message, "this program is currently unavailable".
Plus, the cable companies have NEVER heard of anyone having more than one DVR in the house, let alone two side by side, so Scientific Atlanta never came up with the idea to make a multi-frequency remote.
The ONLY thing I liked better about my cable HD DVR was the ability to spell out words to search for in either a program name or it's description to find something. I'm not sure why Tivo has never done that.
so now, life is great. we have two brand new S3's and one Tivo HD, all with multi-stream cable cards from TW cable.
My wife commented last night that it was great hearing the familiar Tivo sounds in the house again...like and old friend.....life is good!
