Another immigrant from the Sony DHG-HDD world reporting for duty. I picked up 2 Premiere XL at Best Buy, prior to Black Friday. The price was better than TiVo's Black Friday price
With this move, I have increased my storage space by 60% over two HDD500s and a HDD250. The DVRs are used to record OTA HD shows, etc. Cable is in the house, but it is controlled by my better half.
All of my DVRs are connected using component video via a "Audio Authority" component switch. The TiVo is in the same rack with a HDD250 and a HDD500. I didn't see any PQ issues during testing over the last couple of days.. I have a Sony XBR-65HX929 that has enough HDMI inputs so I could connect the DVRs directly, bypassing the switch. My old TV, another Sony (KP-57XBR10W) only had a component or RGBHV input. No ATSC tuner.
I will be using a Sony AX1400 remote to control the TiVo. The AX1400 is programmable via a PC. In its database, it had codes from most of the buttons found on the TiVo remote. It had a Power On/Off code, it did not work. There was no code for a Stop Button. I'm a retired software engineer and Navy ETR, so I get to do a little tinkering on the PC.
