We've been long time (10 plus years) Tivo lovers. Have owned three series 2 units, 1 series 3 unit and now a Premiere unit as of 9 months ago. When we bought our HD unit 4 years ago, we hooked up an antenna in the attic and it brought in a very clear HD signal form our local stations which all have antennas about 18 miles away....absolutely no problem. So we decied we want a new Premiere unit since we wanted to place the existing HD unit in the basement for a second Tivo. Since we installed the Premiere unit we've had nothing but frustration with OTA reception when there is anything but dead calm weather. I've tinkered around with the antenna, connections etc...., even swapped the two tivos around and found absolutely no reason why the Premiere won't get a strong signal. I'm thinking that the tuner on the new Premiere's is substandard comparted to the tuner in my old HD unit. I also found that I don't use any of the new "features" on the Premiere....and that picture in a picture that barks at you while you're on the main screen is absolutely obnoxious and while you can turn it off....the very next time you go to the main screen....there is is again. When I purchased the Premiere, I knew the cost was 19.99/month for the first year....foolishly thinking it would revert to the normal 12.95 after that.....NOT ! My understanding is that I'll be paying 19.99 for ever for a product that had no additional features I value and a substandard tuner that makes watching TV horrible when the weather is anything but dead calm. So, I'm thinking of buying another HD unit on Ebay and once my one year contract is up on the Premiere....dumping it and hooking up another HD unit which hopefully will go back to 12.95/month service. Has anyone else had this experience or something similar ? I can't be the only one thinking the Premiere unit stinks can I ?
