Advertisements 1.5 years, and as of the last few weeks, it looks like my harddrive is failing. It's been a great 1.5 years, but I'm going to leave TiVo and DirecTV now. The drive failure is just the kick to put me over the fence... moving internet/phone/tv to my cable company will save me $50/month for the next year. At which time I'll be back on the fence probably. And Series 3 could definitely work its way into my setup when it finally debuts.
