Wow this has a lot of nice capabilities. I am very glad seeing the market move to more on demand (either directly or self recorded) options. Much like the HTPC platform in many cases it is getting so close to the point of being able to totally drop a provider at least for higher end thing's. I also like the full web package of these things as well. I would love to just have my internet go through a huge HD screen, with apps, and HULU type availabilities etc. I personally watch shows regularly now on NBC, ABC, CBS etc etc etc as well as directly through HULU and that type of package as well. It adds a whole lot of convenience as well.
This "upgrade" looks rather underwhelming to me.
I would like to see a version with 4 tuners and 2 1TB HDDs (in case a single 2 TB HDD cannot keep up with 5 video streams at once)
im new to tivo, but i pre-ordered the premiere at Tivo Premiere
i was a little concerned about the memory, but 45 hours of HD should translate to at least double regular definition, right?
