    I actually want to replace my Tivo with a SD DVR. The only thing that Tivo does for me is record about thirty shows per day that I really have no interest in. (Yes, I know I can turn off suggestions, but occasionally there's a program that it gets right.) When I have to use it because it's in the bedroom, I find that I really miss the PIG and the ability to select a channel from the guide and stay in the guide. DLB is nice, and I would probably use it more if it were in the living room, but the Tivo itself is really kind of a PITA.

    Didn't vote, as it's more of a "like" thing. I try not to love inanimate objects. :lol:

    I've pretty much ditched my HR10 for my HR20s, and HATE it when I have to use the Tivo GUI, except when it searches all my wishlists at once :)

    Well, I'm a new member that has been lurking for a couple months now after joining the HR20 club. I was very iffy about switching from my directivo.

    I must say that I'm very happy with the switch. I had to reset once during this 2 month span due to a system freeze, but that was over a month ago.

    I had Comcast for years and their DVR was quite similar in operation to the HR20-700. I had never seen Tivo in my life and the HR20 fit right into what I was used to.

    Right on Farmdwg! The HR20 is noisy, doesn't have suggestions, and for me, is much more difficult to use. Also, the HR10 TIVO has a very important feature missing from the HR20--a reliable recording feature. Directv, get smart, bring the TIVO back!

    Going to have a 4th one on Aug 15th to try and get a good one. Hate it for not working and all the replacements not working. Tivo was nice but I don't care what I watch tv on, as long as it works! My old tivo never had one problem ever. It wasn't HD either.

    i like my hr20-100 at first but in the last couple of weeks it is a piece of crap, now is always locking up, not recording shows, playing audio but freezing the video, cant watch the station that is recording and that is just to name a few. only thing that works is to hit the red reset button, was told i shouldnt but no other button works. even tried unplugging it, nothing. guess i might have to try and get a different one, since this one is only 3-4 months old

    I throw the flawed poll flag!

    The only hate it option is qualified by the previous ownership of a TiVo device.
    I never had TiVo, but I still hate it.

    I feel that I have not been represented in this poll, and thus it is flawed. :p

    I was wondering how many people were voting who never had the joy of TIVO! So, this poll could be severely skewed...

    I love my HR20s. Two of them, even. There's that much love I have to go around. :)

    I also love the promise of new things to come with the HR20: VOD and more HD channels. Eventually, capability to play back videos from a PC, and maybe someday even MRV.

    I love that the HR20 has a future. So yes, I love my HR20s.

    I had a HD TiVo HR10-250, 3 SD DIRECTV TiVo's, and a stand alone series two TiVo for a long time. I loved the TiVo's and was so mad when DIRECTV decided to go away from them and do their own DVR's. At this point I am glad they did. I actually like the HR20's much better. For that matter I actually like the R15's more.
