Since all the changes with Comcast in my area I am looking to make a change. I have had the CC DVR for quite some time and never really liked it but it has been functional until the recent xfinity update (yuck!). Additionally since the analog channels have be finally whacked and not remapped to clear QAM my HTPC is almost useless. The DTAs from CC really stink since I have to dumb down my digital TVs to really poor quality. So everything I read and hear about Tivo is mostly good. I did some research and figured out what I want to purchase but after chatting with the online rep the cost seems just too prohibitive for me since I was wanting the lifetime service. With that option depending on whether I get the Premiere or Premiere XL the break even period versus getting a 2nd CC DVR is 4 or 5 years. Below is my transcript discussion with Tivo online support. Does this seem right? I can get a second CC DVR for $15 a month that is roughly equivalent to the non-XL version so that pay back is 4 years. Even though it is a crummy unit it does the basics and is no commitment. I was hoping Tivo would be in the $500 range per box. Any thoughts as to if I am looking at this correctly? I understand the value of the Tivo just wondering if I missed a better value somehow in purchasing. Thanks.
