For the last week or so I have been going back and forth between the TiVo forum and the Replay TV forum. I have asked alot of questions and read alot of posts. I think both products are great. Period. I think the Replays quick skip is a must and I like the program grid. Having said that I have chosen to get the TiVo Unit. Mainly becuase of the fact that it can be used as a stand alone unit without programming (it emulates a VCR's manual programming and needs not have any program service). Therefore even if both companies go under (which I doubt) then it won't be a door stop. I also worry that the Replays recent announcement was public relations death (doing it before Xmas seemed like the last insane act of a desperate man). I sure as heck did not want to invest in a sinking ship, and that is what it looked like to me. time will tell on that. I CAN say however, that I perused both this forum and the TiVo forum and I see many more technical problems being complianed about on the Replay than with the TiVo. That was a big factor for me too.
