I'm inclined to look at this when it comes out. I've been a TiVo person since 1999, but I'm wanting to stay with DirecTV. My primary reason is NFL Sunday Ticket. If Comcast would have NFLST, I'd consider going back there so I could have a "TiVo" again. But since NFLST is an D* exclusive, I'll be staying. I'm sure the HR20 will be fine. How well it performs I'm sure is up to personal taste; meaning the software, and all that. What I've read about the HR15 tells me there's some things it does better, some worse, so it's a personal preference thing as far as I see it. While I've been a TiVo person for awhile (got my first one in May of 1999), if someone else comes along and does something at least as good, I'd be a fool not to at least look at it. I am fortunate in that I was one of the people who was around when it was still possible to get a lifetime subscription for their PVR service, so I got grandfathered, and don't have to pay the monthly fee. Also these pictures really look like a hardware beta. I seriously doubt the final product will actually look exactly like that - specifically in the back. Eveyrthing will get labled, and all that.
