This box does not play YouTube, PPV Direct Cinema, or support DTV's Whole Home DVR service. Sounds pretty neutered to me. FWIW, I do not use any of these services enough for it to be a bother to me, but a modern day box that cannot do these basic things implies very poor DTV integration. I use the eSATA port on the DTV HD box for a very large external drive and while the new TIVO box has an eSATA port I am worried it may not even allow for expansion. I miss my TIVO but chose to go HD. I think I'll wait until a few of you early adopters see what else is missing and perhaps what might be unexpected feature additions before I buy. What do you think?
