Just a recommendation, get a Zenith for your TiVo, but buy an EchoStar / DISH Network TR-40 CRA
(DTVPal) with your second coupon. It has the best EPG
of any of the converter boxes, TiVo-like, and it's free other than shipping. The DTVPal has had its problems, but the latest firmware, 106, fixes most of the problems. If you aren't going to use the DTVPal with a VCR, you're pretty safe.P.S.
Make sure you look at the build date near the UPC on the Zenith. I grabbed a June by accident. I am going to exchange it for a July build. Don't know if any builds from August are floating around yet.
