    Upon this announcement, and the expiration of my free years of service from the S3 transfer, I retired our Humax T800 at 176 hrs. Replacing it is a TiVoHD, upgraded to 62 hrs HD before ever powering up the box.

    BTW, I used the WinMFS approach and it was scary just how simple it was. (previous boxes were upgraded using Hinsdale, et. al.)

    Comcast is scheduled to show up Saturday morning with a MultiStream CC. They've promised me they will bring several just in case, but of course, only 1 is going in the TiVoHD.

    Now the real question I'm waiting for is what kind of transfer speeds will we see over a Gigabit wired ethernet network? (Yes, I realize the bottleneck will be in the TiVo processing and the 100 Mbps network adapters in the Series3 and the TiVoHD).
