my wife and i had full service cable with a nice expensive package. we've recently downgraded to save on monthly fees but miss our dvr terribly. i never thought i was one to get a tivo, but ive been thinking what the heck, cause i was renting a dvr from metrocast (my local cable company) anyways. so ill tell you my situation and hopefully you all can steer me in the right direction. 1. we have an off brand cable company, not comcast 2. would prefer dual tuner 3. do not have hdtv service, but will watch hd movies through ps3 4. need lots of storage space 5. wouldnt mind finding a used model to save, money 6. lifetime service appeals to me, especially if bought at in a deal used 7. have basic cable, which means my input will be a coaxial cable, with no cable box before it whew! i know thats alot, but i was hoping you guys could steer me in the right direction of what unit to buy and what will work for my specific needs.
