I just joined, but I've been reading the forums for awhile. I had a Sony Tivo back in the day and adored it but then I switched to Dish Network. Now, unfortunately, I'm stuck with cable again (Time Warner) and hate the DVR with a white-hot passion. I thought I'd get Tivo and the cable card and be done with the horrid thing, but based on what I've been reading, Premiere sounds like a bit of a nightmare. The TW DVR is working fine, except for tonight when it hardily recorded something that then vanished (weird, but hello, Bittorrent), so I wondered if folks had any opinion about whether it's viable to switch. I DO like the idea of saving a bit of money, which I would with the Tivo, but I don't want a bunch of headaches either. TW seems to be a particular problem with Tivo, at least based on what I've read here. And just as an aside, does anyone know off the top of their heads whether it's possible to keep the cable but dump the broadcast channels (which cost me $13 a month) and go OTA with the Tivo? My thought is that then, I would at least have the reliability of the major channels. Any help or discussion would be greatly appreciated. This forum is wonderful!!
