After such a horrid experience with the Premiere which I bought right out of the gate (early adopter lesson!!), and a year of suffering that only ended up with Tivo sending me a refurbished Premiere, I have finally started to try to assemble information on alternatives to Tivo. Since (as Molly Wood states) Tivo has left me, I want to plan my exit and leave Tivo. What alternate set ups do you have or have you considered? Many thanks!
