    beside's the price and the HD size, what's the difference between the Premiere and premiere XL???? is it worth the extra money?

    I have Verizon Fios, and was thinking of replacing the Verizon dvr with a tivo..... any issues using with fios?

    This answer may have changed in the last few months. If you feel ok about changing the disk drive you can get a 2 TB drive (twice the size of an XL) for less than $100.
    I have done that twice and it was very easy.

    As for the sound, you better have a great ear, fantastic sound track and marvelous equipment to tell the difference if there is any.

    thank you everybody (except jmill)...

    so it's just the THX sound then really... (HD replacement is no prob). I do have a 5.1 surround sound... but I'm sure the fios dvr dosen't have thx, and it's just fine... so I guess I really don't need the xl then...

    Don't worry about the THX part, it doesn't have anything to do with the sound output. It is only a certification that would apply if you were building a true THX home theater room.
    I'd be willing to bet that the Premier and Premiere XL hardware are the same except for the hard drive.
