I just cancelled my DirectTV and got the paper thin antennas for every TV I own. Now the next step is to get some type of recording and storage for my over the air setup. I check with Tivo and it is quite expensive around $800 for the Premier XL with lifetime service. Tivo has a one year warranty - the lifetime service is only on that particular unit and if it breaks down; you have to get it repaired from an outside service. Tivo will swap an refurbish unit if it is in warranty but you have to get another service plan is my understanding from another blog. Customer service will not swap your Lifetime warranty and add it to the refurbish unit. Any servicing voids the warranty unless done by Tivo - so you cannot upgrade the hard drive, etc...
I like to just use one DVR and move it to back and forth to where I want to watch TV. I not sure if this will delete the recording data if it is unplug for a couple of minutes - anyone know? I think the DirectTV has some sort of built-in capacitor and I can move it for cleaning and plug it back in and it good to go!
The Channel Master seems to be the way to go if it can get the scheduling info through the internet. I just going to wait till the reviews come out and/or if Tivo offers a holiday offer I cannot refuse or Channel Master offers an offer too.
Just have to check this forum out each week.
Cannot wait for the info!
