Okay, so I've been with TiVo from the giddy-up. Still got a Series 1 with lifetime. Very happy in general with my DirectTiVos. Got the 250 in a closet in the basement distributed throughout the house with hdmi and room-by-room audio (along with a 160 AppleTV which is great for ripped DVDs of cartoons for my kid and such), and two room-specific series 2 boxes. Very happy with all that. Eventually DirectTV will screw me and try to make me leave my HD DirectTivo in order to get their newer HD channels. I haven't worried TOO much about that because most of my HD viewing is OTA... but that's not completely true, and, in fact, I'm watching more and more from non-OTA HD channels. So, I'm thinking about going S3 + 2 HD TiVos. There are several problems. First, I hate Comcast. Deeply. I went to sat to get away from the bastards in the first place. Second, reading threads on troubles with cablecards, and such, makes me unhappy. I've gotten too old to deal with that sort of crap. Third, I really do hate Comcast. I suppose one option would be to get an HD TiVo, use it to record OTA and use a combination of DVDs and iTunes to get the few other shows (Monk, Burn Notice, things like that) I watch through cable (though that doesn't solve a few other problems I have: Burn Notice isn't on iTunes, for example). So, help me out here. Is it worth all the trouble to move to Comcast? How long am I going to have to wait for all this to work out? I don't want to deal with this in the middle of the TV season and miss some TV show I actually pay attention to. Has DirectTV become as evil as Comcast? Is that even possible? I'm in Atlanta, BTW, if that helps.
