Wouldn't know, I'm OTA only.
Plus 1 on that!
When i first got my tivo, installed cableCard and started watching tv, I was flipping out about the quality of my locals. 2,4,5,7 all in full screen but horrible. I was mortified. Called Cablevision, waited on hold only to find out how stupid i am.
Oh, and goodbye eldrick.
On to greener pastures with DTV. Their DVR's are excellent. But, they also have directivo.
Even if they do, the Tivo will refuse to associate guide data with the clear-QAM channels without a cablecard and a mapping in the cablecard for the channel.
Lot of *STJs here
Not trying to flame here, but I got DTV HD installed today after dropping Comcast TV after 12 days of use with Tivo Premiere XL.
The picture quality on every channel is far superior to what I saw from Comcast, including local channels. I don't know where their essentially unlimited hard-wired bandwidth is going, but it is certainly not being used for TV picture quality, and Tivo seems to be maniacally focused on adding features to the detriment of software quality.
The DTV HR24-200 HD UI is faster than the SD UI on the Tivo, and it still has Native resolution support and apparently far fewer software issues.
Overall, I view it as a substantial upgrade from Comcast/Tivo. Tivo/Comcast was a huge disappointment, to me, as I was one of the first DirecTivo users a dozen of so years ago.
I would say that's pretty huge (so it's obviously a matter of opinion).
The *SD* recordings I make are approximately 1 gig/hour. Slightly varying either way.
(I know, because I download a lot of musical performances from talk shows -- and lately, have been offloading and/or "backing up" some recordings in case the orig drive goes bad too). The HD versions are way huger.
Aw, you didn't actually leave! You big tease...
But at least he was able to find the proper HD channels for his locals on DTV
Congrats!!! I really miss DTV, enjoy it.
Too subtle for me. What dat mean?
