Long time TiVo user and just bought 2 refurb'd Premieres to replace my 2 TiVo HD units. I started out my DVR/PVR days with Ultimate TV, but have had TiVo's for years now. Just look at my join date to the forum. Man was the Ultimate TV one thing Microsoft should have stuck with longer. It's hard to believe it took TiVo until recently to have the freaking "Free Space Indicator" that the Ultimate TV had eons ago. The "Free Space Indicator" is one of the reasons I decided to finally pull the trigger along with most importantly the power savings. Yes, I know the HD UI is still not complete. (Here's hoping they get with it after reading about the Virgin TiVo). Still, it's hard to sneeze at a 35 to 45% power reduction for two electronic components that run 24/7. Anyway, I just got both boxes today from UPS and I'm in the process of setting them up now. Odd to me that they both have manufacture dates of May 2011 and are refurbs. What's even odder is that during setup they are both doing a software upgrade. I would have thought that a refurb manufactured this month would already have had the latest software. Well back to checking on both boxes. Feel free to chime in with anything I might want to know about the switch to Premieres. My two 1.5 GB AV-GP hard drives will arrive tomorrow for a capacity upgrade and yes I've already found the JMFS Live CD sticky. Any thoughts on that would be nice as well. I'm a tech geek, so as long as it was programmed well I shouldn't have any issues.
