No disagreement there. It just comes down to cost, the Elite was for all practical purposes developed for cable companies and only needed digital cable tuners and didn't cost TiVo much more to bring it to retail. To have developed and then built a retail product that was basically a Premiere XL times 2 would have cost significantly more than what the Elite did, both to in development and to build, and therefor would have needed to have cost more than the Elite does. In my opinion I don't believe there would have been enough sales of a Premiere XL times 2 product to justify the costs and don't believe there would be enough sales of an OTA only Elite type product to justify its costs. Of course my opinion is tainted by the fact that I believe I and most OTA users are better off with two dual tuner DVRs than one quad tuner DVR.
