I have 2 Premieres. I have no issues with them. I run the HDUI, don't get blue rings, record tons of season passes, watch Netflix and use pyTivo to get stuff on the TiVo and kmttg to get stuff off the TiVo, and copy shows between Premieres all the time. If you read through these forums, you'd think NO ONE is happy with their Premiere. I'm quite happy with mine.
