Receive and record OTA HD (my TV doesn't have an internal tuner).
No one's gonna say the remote?
Seriously, I fail to see how anyones answer wouldn't include some combination of "HD" and "TiVo".
Recording HD, period.
Of course I love the TiVo interface but if there was a cheaper (and decent - not that Sony thing I've read horror stories about) way to let me record OTA HD signals, I'd take it.
For me as well though I will add:
To be able to upgrade the unit for larger capacity. I absolutely HATE how small the drive is in my Motorola. 2 Nice 2.5 hour HD recordings and the capacity is 75%+ full.
the light up remote will work great when i am watching skinemax in the dark.
Some combination of HD and Tivo
Dual live buffers.
It was hard going from the UI on the DirecTivo to the one on the Comcast/Motorola 6412, but not as hard as giving up dual live buffers. I would have gone back to DirecTV and the HR20, but DirecTV misread its user desires and omitted it for some inexplicable reason.
HDTV plain and simple - now I can finally use one. My S2 will take care of my networking needs (TTG etc).
Dual tuner HD recording. Helps iron out the messy timeslots.
And the interface.
Cheaper that 799 and 16 a month.... There sure are....
not sure I can narrow it down to 1 feature. capacity (and upgradability) along with reliability are my 2 primary reasons (compared to my comcast provided motorola 6412 box #3).
Where do you get $16 a month? The TiVo service is only $12.95 a month for first time users and $6.95 for users who already have another TiVo. And don't say the CableCARDs because he said OTA and that does not require CableCARDs.
Ability to record two non-OTA HD channels with Tivo interface was the selling point for me.
I own a Windows MCE (that I'm currently selling on EBay) and already had the ability to record OTA HD.
Reliable HD recording. I can't wait to put my ailing SFA 8300HD to rest!
Its not a DirecTV box, and has the same features as the HR10-250.
If D* had supported TiVo for HD, I wouldn't even be considering doing business with Comcast. I'm hoping it'll have feature parity with my HR10-250, I'll find out when I get my hands on one.
The number one reason is wanting a genuine dual tuner TiVo DVR/PVR that can record HD from my cable company (and dump their crappy SA8300HD DVR). That's all I needed. The TiVo S3 will be used on my 60" Sony SXRD HDTV for the recording of HD programming. (I have 2 other TiVo's for standard def recording) The fact that I can also record the 2 OTA HD channels my Cable Co (TWC) isn't allowed to show (ABC and FOX) makes it even better.
Simultaneous 2 channel HD recording.
But, I can't believe it doesn't have a coax output for Digital Sound.
If you need coax for some reason CablesToGo sells an optical to coax converter box for about $30.
