Based on what we've heard so far, would you consider buying the new Tivo?
i will when one of my S3 ends its 3 year in september (they wouldnt give me the $99 lifetime special), especially if what Datz says that existing people with life time (i have 1 s3 life'd) get a discount.
Nope, Hello Ceton.
Until they figure out the whole 2 way communication thing I won't be buying one. And I'm now more convinced than ever that the DirecTV box will never happen.
I voted other. My mother is buying two of my HDs off me anyway since she hates the Fios DVR. As a result I will need at least one so I see no reason not to versus buying a HD model.
I was planning to buy two if they had improved some of the base DVR functionality (specifically, more than 2 tuners and/or cooperative scheduling and padding/negative padding), but unless the interface turns out to be far more responsive than the S3 line, I'll wait.
Yes, I'll be buying one. No compelling reasons, but my S2DT is about to be down graded by Comcast's switch to full digital so I was going to be replacing it anyway. I'm not going to be upgrading my S3 or HD to the Premiere.
My three year prepaid service expires on my Series 3 at the end of May. I may upgrade to the new Premiere for the HD menus and faster processing speed.
Then again, the bluetooth qwerty remote and Pandora are available for the S3, so I may not need to update. 1080p would be nice on my 1080p projector, but it isn't a must have.
I like how it does full 1080p (though nothing on cable is 1080p), the new UI looks "interesting" though only this box can have the new UI is a dissapointment, more colored dots is ugly (at least they can be turned off). I'll consider it if I can do a trade-in/up.
Not totally sure I want to give up my Series 3 yet. Though the UI is slow I enjoy the OLED screen.
Nothing on cable is 1080p yet. They could do it similar to how Directv and Dish do it. You have to realize TiVo is looking into the future a bit with this. Who knows what we'll be doing in 2-3 years with this thing. Also some of the internet stuff might be 1080p soon.
i just bought lifetime on 2 Tivo HDs, if i cant transfer I dont want it.
Tivo says: F U loyal customers...
I really don't understand how this is considered an upgrade to the S3.
Seems like an S3+ more than an S4
Not until there is a DirecTV version... I have an original lifetime Series 1 that my parents use (replaced the hard drive 3 times over the decade).
I hate the DTV interface, and miss TiVo. The bedroom still has a Series2 DirecTiVo, and though not high def, I like it.
I really hate the "live view" window in the corner of my DVR. I don't care what crap is on live, when I'm looking for something SAVED to watch...
Most likely I will buy one in June when the sub on my S3 is up. Seems silly to get LT for the Series 3 at this point if I can get it on this instead. I have an HTPC, but I am not ready let it handle TV recording, only playback..
I plan on buying one. Have you tried living with the Comcast DVR (SARA Guide DVR)? That's all I have to say
Seems pointless without Tru2way
I was about to buy my first Tivo, and I waited for this announcement. I am not blown away by the improvements, but I am optimistic this will be better for future updates. I thought for sure they would have Hulu with that tagline. Part of me still wants to hit up Ebay to get a Tivo HD for cheap, but I think I will just suck it up and buy a Premiere or Premiere XL and hope that it gets some sweet updates in the future.
Seems to have nothing to offer to owners of S3+Lifetime, just a nicer interface. What new content there is will apparently come to the S3 also.
I would need a steep discount -- 50%, say -- and transfer of my Lifetime contract before I'd consider buying one.
