good idea or bad

slocko, I've got 2 Tivos, standalones, I had the first one in Atlanta thru a freak deal. How does the DirecTivo function in regards to the standalone unit by Philips? Do you have any info about that or will it be even better. Of course you can watch 1 channel while recording another or record 2 channels at the same time but as far as the guide etc. is the functionality the same basically.

I've pre-ordered the HD Tivo and I figured I'd totally switch out my two UTV's at that point for the Directivo. I've seen numerous posts that people who have switched are now wishing they had the UTV back. The fact the HD Tivo will only record 30 or so High Def hours, I figure I will still need either a Directivo (with two 120 gb drives) or my two UTV's with 120 gb drives for the standard def stuff. I'm still on the fence which direction to go. It would be great if DTV made some type of statement as to how long the UTV's will be supported. As the numbers dwindle, at some point I would think they will do a UTV switch out to tivo with incentives for doing so. So here on the fence I sit......

The other great thing about the directivo, is that it's free each mth, if you get premier choice. I currently subscribe to premier choice for $20 off special. So it's a great deal.
