I'm still on the fence, but leaning towards getting one. The lack of MRV really is my only problem. I lived without it for a long time, but now that I've had it I know I'll miss it. But I think having suggestions back will help mitigate that. I'll probably only replace my HR21-700 and keep the 2 HR24-500s. To me, as mentioned, suggestions is probably my biggest plus on the Tivo. The unlimited number of season passes is another major plus for me. Being able to scan OTA channels is another plus for me. MRV is really the only minus I see. The HDGUI is a non-issue to me. The lack of picture in the guide and menus is actually a plus to me. I haven't made my decision yet, but I'm leaning pretty hard at this point.
