    I...don't.. really...use my tivo anymore.

    There - I said it.

    I watch HDTV almost exclusively now and use the Comcast DVR to record it (unlike some others, I rarely have a problem with it). My tivo is a Series 1 and I figured I'd record all of my SD onto that. But when I set up a new SD series to record, I almost always do it on the Comcast DVR. And I never get around to watching the SD series that I have been recording on the Series 1. So after almost 3 years I find that I rarely switch the input to the tivo.

    It saddens me...

    I don't think you're alone. If I had an HDTV, I'd probably use the Comcast DVR too, although the new, cheaper Series 3 might make all that cable card hassle worth it.

    why didn't you get a Series 3?

    Or, you could buy the new, almost a series 3 TiVo.

    Sadly, I will soon be leaving my TiVo behind. I have an HR10-250, and it won't receive the new HD channels from DirecTV. It's a choice between the interface and features I love and the new HD glory for Scifi channel, USA, Bravo, Food Network... I have to go with the new channels.

    I'm quite sad about it. :(

    Noooooooooooooooooo................

    I had a cable company HD DVR for a while too, but I still watched all of my SD stuff on the TiVo. I even often recorded SD versions of HD shows on the TiVo, because I couldn't stand the SA8300HD (with SARA software).

    I HATED hated hated hated that POS excuse for a DVR.

    The Series 3 is the best money I've spent since I got my first Series 2. :)

    I only use mine for certain shows. I hardly ever use it to pause or rewind or anything. :eek:

    I... I can't believe I'm admitting this... but...

    When Time Warner gets restocked w/HD DVRs, I'm probably going to get a second one from them, and unplug the TiVos...

    1) Initial expense (comcast DVR is $10/month)
    2) As I said, unlike some others the Comcast DVR has worked really well for me (Motorola 3416). It's missing some of the features that tivo has (e.g. wishlists), but nothing I couldn't live without.
    3) Didn't really want to bother with the cable card hassle.

    And now I'm very used to it.

    So far they have been hard to beat and are stiff competition for anyone else. I can go in and out and in and out of HD and local channels with no problem but now I'm gushing and probably premature....I mean it has been a long time since I had TiVo.

    I'm recently TiVo-less after running a S1 and S2 DTiVo. I miss the familiar TiVo interface I've used over the years, I love my satellite HD. I did consider Comcast for a bit (S3 w/ 2 cablecards) but DirecTV gave me the HR20 dirt cheap, so I thought I'd give it a try.

    Well, I do have the S2 DTiVo and a HR10-250 in the basement, so technically I still own TiVos. ;)
