Advertisements Haven't posted here in ages, but thought I'd get some advice from the experts. We're giving up "city life" for a more laid back rural experience on the pacific coast. Right now we're enjoying our Premiere XL and a Series3 that's still going strong, both with lifetime subs. Although it's less than two-hour's drive, the home we're buying doesn't have "normal" cable service (yet) so satellite or OTA are the only options. AFAIK OTA isn't so good there. FWIW their "high speed" broadband is DSL. OMG! So I'm a bit apprehensive on a couple of levels. That being said, we're doing this. The two satellite options are Dish and D*TV with D*TV being the only one offering a TiVo-based DVR. When I look at the specs I feel like I'm stepping back in time with "wish lists", "swivel search" and so on. Are they that far behind? It apparently only has a 500GB hard drive as well. A TiVo sub is an added cost to consider. Soooo...my dilemma...stick with TiVo and suffer through their antiquated version or bite the bullet and go with D*TV's "Genie" DVR - which comes as close to modern TiVo specs as anything else. (I'm also leaning toward D*TV due to the additional rugby programming which Dish doesn't offer.) If I were to stick with a D*TV TiVo could I get two machines, one for each TV? That would give us the semi-luxury of having four tuners and double the storage. However I can't tell if they are capable of transferring or streaming content from one to the other. If not, that's not too helpful. I'm guessing I couldn't upgrade to a larger hard drive like I've done with past TiVos either. So what would you do? TIA! EDIT: I found some more info about D*TV TiVos at Weaknees...and it wasn't very positive. They can add additional storage which is good, but that's about it. It appears that if I want the kind of service I have currently...record four channels at once, view all recordings on either TV, etc., I'm going to have to go with DirecTV's Genie DVR. *Sigh* Can anyone prove this theory wrong? It would be awesome if so!
