A couple of years ago I had to choose,

Replay or Tivo, well Tivo it was sins Best Buy had them.

A series 1 with 14 ours of recording!

True the years a DTivo ended up in my household

(Sony Sat60 with dual tuners) and was upgraded with a 160 gig B drive)

As for Tivo one it's still going strong, my 5 year old has it,

(has an 80 gig B drive)

Then Cosco had the 5060 on sale for 179$

So what did I had to lose?

Well after 2 weeks I don't use the Tivo anymore!


Picture quality is better, better colors, as is the none childish interface, no thumbs up nor thumbs down "feature"

Besides a couple of lockups,

(they are fixed now, thanks to this board)

The unit works perfect!

I love the CA, live TV buffer of more then 30 minutes,

Folders you can name for recorded stuff, Zones, ext.

So now it's time to get a another Replay before the "new"

model comes out without the CA!

So if you think the competition is better,

Trust a long time Tivo user, NO it is not!

P.s a 200 gig Maxtor 7200 rpm is in there now and gives me just what I need.

More recording space!

Welcome to the ReplayTV side of things. Glad you are enjoying your new box. If you think that the features you just mentioned are cool, wait until you have a second unit and can start using the networking features. Three things that I think are great.

1) I've recorded a show in the bedroom, but want to watch it in the family room. No problem.

2) I have a conflict in the family room, but really don't want to go to the bedroom to set a recording. No problem, I can indicate on the family room Replay that I want to record it on a networked machine.

3) DVArchive is just about the best thing about ReplayTV right now. Pulling shows off the ReplayTVs to a firewire drive, is fantastic.
