I currently have a S2 Lifetime and a S2DT MSD. I recently got Fios installed and a new HD TV so the S2DT isn't cutting it anymore.
Basically here are what i believe are my options:
Verizon HD DVR - $15.99/month
Tivo HD - $299 for Box
$6/month for 2 cablecards
So if my math is correct it will cost me the same monthly weather I get the Verizon box or the tivo. Only difference is the $299 cost for the box.
I do not use any of the extra features that tivo offers, just for recording shows.
Also, did Tivo get a rocket scientist to come up with their pricing plans? Could they have made it anymore confusing? I would do the lifetime transfer but i am not eligible as i purchased it in 2005 on my S2.
