My girlfriend's brother watches TV this way. The one time I was lucky enough to watch TV with him, if there hadn't been a PIG, I wouldn't have seen anything.

The dvr stinks.
Picture quality.
NOT user friendly.
Channel list.

The DVR does suck, it's very slow and mine from all the time. I had the Scientific Atlanta 8300 HD.

The SD picture quality is better but I only watch HD and the HD picture quality on DirecTV is superior.

It's somewhat user friendly but the user interface sucks anyway.

The only advantages I saw about Time Warner over DirecTV was that Time Warner Cable had more locals and more HD channels (in my area). I'm still happy I switched to DirecTV though.
