Profit Profit whats that let them eat cake!
I'll check-in with the cheap squad. I don't think I'll be plunking down my dough until it hits the $499 price point (with a stock 500GB). I haven't decided yet whether or not TTG is a dealbreaker.
Besides, I've got to buy a HDTV first.
It's not the price I have a problem with (I mean, cheaper is always better, but I paid $600 for my first S2, so I can handle an $800 dual HD tuner S3), but the lack of MRV.
I thought about keeping an S2 in my main A/V rig, but realized that, without MRV, TiVo just wasn't offering me enough over what my Moxi already gives me to justify the expense.
I was initially very unhappy, but now feel just fine sitting and waiting for price drops or feature additions, or, hopefully, both.
TiVo is wonderful, and I am jealous of all those enjoying the S3 goodness right now, but it just didn't make enough sense for me at this particular point in time.
If that makes me a cheep chicken barstard, then so be it!
599 is what I'll pay for green eggs and ham.

Come in and stay awhile.
I'm not buying (yet)... just watching. I want to see when FIOS will be offered in my area. I'm waiting to see how DVRs from other companies improve. I'm interest to see what Apple does. Though everyone told me I'd hate it, I'm satisfied with the SA8300hd for now. Would love to go back to TiVo, but seeing as it would take me almost 6 years worth of payments to cablevision (for the 8300) to get to the S3 price + service, I don't see enough of an advantage at the moment.
I sense a vision coming your way in about 4 months.
Hello, my name is joysbox and I am Che@p Chicken B@$t@rd$
it has been 4 months since my last full price purchase....
I will be able to wait until 1 week before my best buy lifetime giftcard goes dead.
This is too funny.
Don't have a HDTV, HAVE DirecTV now, not going to get a series 3 for a LONG time most likely
weaknees has an authorized offer apparently, I received an email from them and it's also posted on their website
MRV is what has me on the fence. If I could replace my SciAtl DVR with HD Tivo, and watch downrezzed HD shows on my S2 in the bedroom, I would be in at the $799 price. Right now I really hate the fact that I have to go down to the living room to watch some of my favorite shows (I refuse to record the same stuff in two locations).
I'm proudly joining the club.
No TTG + MRV = Stupid lifetime upgrade deal for TiVo. Lets give people a year of S2 service for free, but you can't watch anything from each other's unit! Fantastic!
The price with the current feature set has to come WAY down, since my local cable DVR (Echo Passport dual-tuner HDDVR) costs me $2.99 a month.
TCF crashed on me. Wrong thread
Though the clarity of your view may not be all it can be, you will find peace in old traditions.
That's what happens for being an early adopter...I just got a second confirmation e-mail from the Che@p Chicken B@$t@rd$ Rule! Fan Club saying that they had shipped my T-Shirt, Mug, and Cap package.
I ordered it days ago - they finally decide to let me know. The fan club logo better not look stretched either - I am paying for high resolution silk screening here.
Yeah, we're barely set up.
We've got only one room.
No To Go cups for the coffee.
And no extra storage space.
But we're still
I've been reading this forum for the yuck factor but this tops the cake.
But no che@po here. Just not a Comcast customer. And to think "our" big **** $torm is the 6.3 update fiasco for our DirecTV HD Tivos.
Even passive resistance can be overwhelmed by forced updates.
Thanks for the reply. I do have Front Row on my PowerPC macmini, went thru that whole ordeal awhile back... I guess I should work on this project while I wait for the S3 situation to improve.
