    Sounds like they're really moving along on Charter. I wonder why they're still having so much trouble with Comcast and Cox, given those deals were announced years earlier?

    It's peaked my interest. Not sure if the article stated the price/month for the unit, and how it compares to the $13/mo I'm paying for my Tivo with Charter service.

    The only complain I have with Cox and Tivo right now is no OnDemand. I've been excited for a partnership that would rectify that, but a search of Google news reveals one mention that the deal was dissolved. It looks like the article is subscriber only and I wasn't able to find anything else to back that up, to take it for what its worth.

    Per some recent comments from Roger's Comcast roll-out is early 2012 in San Fran. Cox is still being worked but it appears to be somewhat behind Comcast. My guess is the delay is related to cable operator timing issues more than issues with TiVo providing the service.

    New retail Premiere buyers pay $99 up front plus $20 a month unless they pay lifetime. At retail if you want a free replacement if it breaks past 90 days then you have to pay another $30 or $40 for an extended warranty. So the $20 cable company deals are not bad unless you like owning equipment and pay for lifetime.

    I struggled with this decision just like you and have the same setup as you. I decided to go with the Charter Tivo for the following reasons.

    1. No Tuning Adapter. This is a "biggie" for me.

    2. VOD. I have been missing some good stuff.

    3. Charter Support. Now I only have to call one number for support. I don't have to listen to Charter blaming Tivo and Tivo blaming Charter anymore.

    4. Second Tivo for $10 a month.

    What I really want is the Tivo Premiere Q but I can get by with the Premiere for now. Bring it on Charter.

    OK I didn't know the new Tivos were up in price. Thanks.

    Well, I didn't need the TA in my case, so I guess I'm lucky in that respect. It will be interesting to see when it rolls out in my area.

    Yeah I dont think "peeked" would work lol, except for maybe, "I peeked at the secretary as she went up the stairs." :)

    I think you guys are trolling. I would say that basically any time someone has said 'peaked my/their interest', they meant piqued.

    1)dunno- I live in Fort Worth and it says its available now- but I already own 2 premieres with lifetime...Not sure $20 a month works for me
    2)I abhor the grammar police. I don't log into some tivo forum to work on my grammar. Why do people insist on correcting it? If it bothers you then keep it to yourself. It I were on an english literature forum I would expect it. I think the grammar police should be taken out back and shot- and that is being nice.
