I've finally gotten an HDTV and a TV feed that is HD (FiOS). I have a S2 with a Lifetime on it and an upgraded ~300 GB drive, so I'm used to having a lot of recording time, and not paying a monthly subscription. So I've got two downsides right now (and they're obvious): 1. No HD. 2. The FiOS TV box keeps going to sleep and I dont' realize for a couple of days--so I get a couple of days worth of blank recordings. Woo. so I'm looking at a Premiere XL (can't swing an Elite, those are pretty 'spensive!) and a Lifetime subscription. But all these reports of crashes, crummy UI responsiveness, etc, have me worried. And 1 TB of recording space ain't much when you're talking HD. So I figure I've got a few options: 1. Suck it up, buy the XL and Lifetime, and be happy with it. 2. Find an old(er) S3 with a Lifetime and an upgraded (or upgrade it myself) HD. 3. Get a standard Premiere and the WD drive (ha! Those are even more expensive and prone to failure). 4. Go with WMC (probably not great WAF there, but who knows). What would you do? Any rumors of a TiVo Lifetime subscription sale?
