I ordered a refurbished Premiere on Monday and it's due to be delivered today. I've been reading everyone's comments about the system and despite the negatives I'm quite excited to add this to our home. After 4 months of being with a new (to our area) cable provider, I just realized that the copy protection that was on my old cable cards doesn't exist any longer and we'll now have MRV from all three units. That alone makes me happy to get another unit that records HD. I can't wait to use the iPad app. I've been waiting for the HD support they say is going to come, and seeing the little TiVo guy staring at me from my iPad has just been a taunt. Haha. I'm hoping that the HDUI is not as bad as I've read it is. The YouTube videos I've seen of it make me want to use it as my default. However, if it's slow I'll end up switching back to the SDUI. I was able to switch my billing plan to the $129 a year two days ago. Now with the price increases I wish I'd gone with the lifetime offer. I'm going to call and see if I can get them to give it to me anyway since I just switched the day before the changes. Fingers crossed. I'm doing a self-install of my cablecard and at this point that's my biggest worry. I am hopeful that it will go off without a hitch. I've been with TiVo for 11 years and the changes have not been leaps and bounds, but it is still by far the best DVR I've used and I always end up coming back to it. I hope the Premiere does not disappoint.
