Glad to help- do note one thing (I wasn't aware of), the coming (in fall?) "preview" or IP-STB from Tivo, that lets you display a tuner/show from a remote tivo on a different TV,
apparently only supports the quad-tuner Tivo Elite etc models. (Initially; they are supposed to be working on sw fix/method to do with dual-tuner Premieres as well.)
Something due to concern about multiple remote TVs using up all the tuners on the dual-tuner premiere, and leaving the local tivo w/ nothing to record on...
If you don't know or care about that, never mind
but if you want to make a "tivo hub" w/ a single monthly subscription, and view stuff on remote HDTVs, you might look at the quad-tuner models not a plain Premiere.
I don't really know about newer Tivo models coming out, except maybe 2013; the quad ones are somewhat here, at Best Buy etc, not sure if they've rolled out the Comcast-partnered version (or when they plan to.)
They aren't going to do the old tivo-on-comcast-STB model any more, like the east coast experiment, that was apparently painful, and the current on-demand solution for plain retail Tivo Premieres works fine.
