I admit it -- we're hooked on the simplicity of Tivo. Once you try it (with their season pass and point-and-click guide selection), you'll never go back to the hassles of setting a recorder. But now we want to back up TIVO onto DVD (to free up harddisk space, and take programs in our RV).

QUESTIONS:
If a person is ONLY going to dub over Tivo over to DVD (and won't take the time & hassle of tweaking the commercials out of a HD recording first), is there any reason to buy the E80 over the RDR-GX7?

Why hasn't anyone come out with a combination DSS/Tivo/DVD-r unit and make everyone's lives that much easier?

No. But I would stick to the cheaper E50, rather than get the GX7, if all I'm going to do is save my Tivo shows to DVD without having to cut out the commercials first.
