I am thinking about getting a Tivo Premiere. Currently on Directv with a R-15 DVR, and I am fed up. DVR #1 died. It developed "blank spots" where it would skip over anywhere from a few seconds to over 10 minutes of a program. DVR #2, the replacement started doing the same thing after 3 weeks. Now DVR #3 when you turn it on, it will not respond to any input from the remote control for at least 5 minutes. It is not worth paying close to $80 a month for this kind of aggravation. I see Best Buy has the Tivo Premiere with an antenna for $99. I see that in my area OTA there are over 60 channels. All for about $60 a month less. I can save even more if Tivo runs the Antenna only promotion again. Yeah, I get it, I will never get rich living on Social Security. So, that's where I am at. Which leaves a few questions my digging here has not found yet. 1- Is there any chance the Antenna Only promotion will be offered again? Or, does it still work? 2- If I download programming from online (Amazon, Netflix, etc) can I transfer it to my computer & burn a DVD? After all, if I paid for it I should be able to save it long term.
