    I'm able to get by with OTA and Tivo, so I'm saving the cost of a monthly cable bill minus the amortized cost of my Tivos.

    It's a shame that it comes down to which monopoly you live under and how bad or good their network requirements are.

    For me, it was a big savings: Pay Comcast $31.90 for two craptastic HD DVR boxes or, as I did 31 months ago, buy two refurbished Series 3 with lifetime service for @$1000. The two multistream cable cards cost me $3.00 a month.

    I imagine refurbished Elite units will be available for @$300 in a few months.

    why wouldi do that? i never used the word elite in my post, i clearly said PREMIERE in my post:p

    so i stand by my savings of 80 a month vs my directv bill, as clearly stated in my previous post.

    The Elite *is* a Premiere.

    but not all premieres are elite! so bringing up the elite when i mentioned just premiere was an unwarranted stretch :) and i stand by my savings number
