Not that I care. I just dumped my TWC SA8300HD DVR for a TiVo Series 3 with a 750GB Seagate DB35 harddrive (98 hours of HD recording time).
Even my relative at TW said they expect to get a lot of angry calls about this new Navigator software. For one thing it won't be able to show any program descriptions.
I just ordered a TiVo S3 a few days ago from Costco dot com and it should arrive before the weekend. After reading lots of threads on TivoCommunity dot com i'm really hoping the CableCard install goes well and hoping the cards continue to work properly after the tech leaves.
My plan is to turn-in two of my 3 HD DVRs, and keep the one 8300HD to supplement the TiVo S3 for the time being. If i have any issues with the CableCards or any SDV problems i'll still be able to use the soon-to-be-crippled SA8300HD to catch the important shows.
