    I coudn't take it anymore. I unplugged my HR20 and put it into storage until things get better. I purchased the Tivo Series 3 and switched to TWC for now. BTW I love the series 3 very much.

    I'll bring out the HR20 when directv launches all of their HD channels next year.

    Good luck and see ya in about 9 months

    Neat! How is the S3 working for ya? I'm really tempted to jump also- but I've had some past experiences with Comcast that are concerning.

    We have a coworker with the Comcast HD DVR though- used to make fun of him because he'd occasionally complain about the bad UI. Lately he's been doing most of the laughing.

    S3 works great. I love it. I know of a good deal if you're a member of the tivocommunity.com they have 15% off at their store for members. (til Sunday)

    I have no idea why this thread got moved to the HR20 install tracking thread.
    That makes no sense.

    If I were paranoid, I'd think that this thread about a possible alternative to the HR20 is getting censored- but I am sure our mods would never do something like that.

    This subforum doesn't seem any better place for this thread than the forum it originated in. I'm puzzled as well.

    How about instead of coming up with conspiracy theories try using the report thread and ask why it is was moved to the install forums. You know.. the little red triangle with each post. ;) Since I didn't remove it I will report it.

    And I removed your post asking the question in the DirecTV forum since I already reported it...

    Where was this thread at originally? I would honestly think it belongs in our Tivo area? If you all agree it belongs in the Tivo area I will move it there.

    I would consider the Tivo S3 as I have multiple other standalones right now. Cable in my area is HORRIBLE though.

    It was in the HR20 Q&A, since his post was about canning his HR20 and moving to a series 3- an option many HR20 owners seem to be considering.

    I am going to move it to the Tivo Area since it's about a tivo but i'll leave the redirects all in place so it can be found from either place.

    The entire point of his post was that he'd given up on the HR20.

    Nobody in the tivo forum cares that he switched from an HR20.

    It's back here, that wasn't the right place as it's not a DTV Tivo DVR.

    I would be interested in knowing how the S3 compares to the HR20 and what your overall experience with the S3 is compared to the HR20.

    Thanks.
