I had thought that I would not want this, but having looked at the "First Look" this may change.
1. I have no use for Whole Home. One TV, so that's not a problem.
2. Channels-I-Get being editable to "Channels I Have Some Remote Interest In" as a filter to searches is a BIG DEAL.
3. Unlimited Season Passes are good.
4. My wife has NEVER been willing to learn the HRxx interface. She did use the late, lamented HR10-250. You have no idea how big a plus this might be. ;-)
Does the remote use the old HR10-250 codeset? I still have the JP1 codeset for that around here someplace. I assume it coexists with the HR2x codes, as I imagine replacing my HR21 with the THR22, but keeping my HR20 for OTA. Edmund?
Does the TiVo middleware reside on flash, not hard disk (so that the HD replacement process is drop-in like the rest of the HR2x line and unlike HR10)? Likewise, does the eSATA port replace, rather than add to, the internal drive (again like HR2x and unlike HR10)?
Is there any hope that TiVo's software will port to newer hardware in the future? Or support more features, either DirecTV's or TiVo's?
UPDATE: Questions answered on other thread.
