Advertisements Some background: Cablevision Northern New Jersey (full package all channels) do not use On Demand or PPV 2 Series 2 275 hour TIVO 1 Series 2 Standard Tivo 2 - Hitachi LCD w/cablecard 1 - Sharp LCD w/cablecard 1 275 hour Series 2 connected through STB all channels 1 Standard Series 2 Tivo connected through STB all channels 1 275 hour Series 2 connected directly to third TV Almost all watched content is HD. All Tivoed content is SD. We are having one problem with the cablecard in the Sharp dropping out channels every hour or so and having to unplug and reboot TV. As most people know, the SD through cablebox and Tivoed is not the best quality. We have decided to go HD with our DVRs. The question is do we buy the Tivo HD or use CV HD DVR and expand with esata with whichever we choose? Our present Tivos are not used with any sound systems, so I guess the logical choice is Tivo HD and/or CV HD DVR. We figure we each need about 60 hours of HD content. The extra Series 2 Tivo will remain on the extra TV. We like the idea of recording 2 channels and will probably scrape/give/trade the 3 Series 2 Tivos. If we are recording 2 channels on the DVR of choice, then we could be watching live TV with either the internal/installed cablecard or OTA HD (which we have not tried but seems to work fairly well in our other home in FL). 95% of sports are watched live and the wife and I Tivo about 10 Season Passes a week with the other misc. recording of soaps (her), movies, etc. So the 60 70 hours of HD content would be a good fit and the dual program recording could relieve us of the third DVR. What are your suggestions? After 3-5 years of Tivo, could/would we be happy with CV HD DVR or would we have to have the Tivo HD? Are the cablecards used in the Tivos the same as the ones in our present LCDs or are they the thin ones that are used in the STBs? Costs: $10.00 each CV DVR plus $200 each for upgrade HD Costs: $299.00 each (approx) plus $200 each for upgrade HD, plus $12.95 and $6.95 (saving the third $6.95 we are paying now  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We have friends that have switched from Tivo to CV DVRs and have said they dont miss anything. I hope I did not make this too long or confusing, but its been a while since my Tivo purchasing days .. Thanks.
