I originally purchased the DVR+ to add to our bedroom. As it was shipping to me, I did more research. For the same price I found a Tivo Premiere with Lifetime for the same price.
We already have a Tivo Premiere in the living room (45 hours). I just got the $99 lifetime on that box (had it over 3 years). Now the two Premieres can act together for a four tuner system.
Why I didn't think to get a Tivo first is beyond me. DVR+ going back in the mail.
You should be able to get two Tivo Premiere with Lifetime for $600, and Tivo HD with Lifetime for under $500 for two. Better keep shopping for prices...$700 for two is insane.
As a comparison, the Premiere is better than the DVR+ in every way IMHO. Better user interface, way more viewing options (Netflix. hulu, amazon, youtube) and much better recording options. Anyone that currently has a Premiere would NEVER swap it for a DVR+ unless the sole reason was to save $ (assuming they are not eligible for $99 lifetime service). DVR+, though nice, is not even in the same league as Tivo Premiere.
