Advertisements My original $1000 tivo with the weaknees upgrade ($300) died and I gave up on TiVo. I hooked up my Xbox 360 as a media center extender to record OTA HD. The cost for the setup was much lower than expected. Xbox 360 - $400 Media Center Upgrade on PC - $125 2 HD tuners - $150 Extra 400GB HD - $150 Total - $825 I already had the Xbox and MCE so the only additional cost to me was $300. In comparison MCE is much faster, the guide and record options are just as good, MCE plug-ins offer automatic commercial skip (great feature), you can connect to all data from your PC, and all the great features of the Xbox including the soon to be released HD-DVD for $200. All of this worked great with my Harmony Remote and best of all there is no subscription fee. Once the PC Cablecard tuners are introduced I don't see how TiVo will be able to compete.
