    Fair enough (although I did mention that a bit later). I'm spoiled since I've got Verizon FIOS which, to date, hasn't copy restricted anything I've recorded.

    About a year and half ago I talked to a Comcast management person about the copy restrictions on all the non movie stations, he said he would look into the problem and within a month all copy restrictions were removed except for the HBO type channels, this was in the Hartford CT area Comcast. We now have no MRV problems.

    Yes, you did, indeed. I just wanted to make a point of it.

    Yes, and they probably will be the very last to do so. Verizon doesn't have much in the way of ties to the MPAA or its members. I wish I had FIOS. OTOH, lots of people who had Verizon FIOS in the Northwest suddenly found their TTG and MRV quit working when Frontier bought out Verizon in those areas.

    I don't really understand how that has anything to do with it.

    I would hope/expect things to be deleted from Recently Deleted/Suggestions/Expired programs *AS* they are needed for more disk space.

    That's what seems to be different on S3/Tivo HD in my black box observations. Things *SEEM* to disappear "earlier than they need to", but on the S1, they seem to disappear just when they need to.

    Again, my observations could be wrong, this just seems to be what's happening when comparing behavior of S1 & S3/Tivo HD.. (I micromanage space, so watch suggestions (and on the newer ones, Recently Deleted) obsessively.)

    Oh, you're preaching to the choir here but how was my statement misleading?
    If a person is not interested in "hacking" his Tivo, there's no reason to recommend he not get a Premiere. To the average user, the S3 Tivos are just as restrictive as the Premieres are in regards to MRV and TTG, etc.


    How so? The Premiere is no more restrictive in transferring shows to computer than the S3 platform is.

    Oh wait, you're not the average user....
