Love my Humax too. If you are going to want to save to DVD, it's worth the money.
Or as the OP suggested by direct from Tivo fro $20 less see http://www.tivo.com/2.0.1.aspKingCrutch said:Humax DRT800 80 HR DVD Recorder + 1 year of Plus Service = $325
Buy from Tivo with a 30 day money back guarantee. I doubt you'll want to return it.KingCrutch said:I appreciate your advice. Much like the OP, it's a hard decision as to whether to invest the extra $200 for the DVD burning unit. It is certainly appealing but since I've never had Tivo it's hard to know how much I will use it, or whether I will appreciate the DVD features for the extra money they cost.
