Not officially, but I believe the more there are, the slower the machine.

That would make sense. Sorting, listing, and categorical routines done repeatedly with large lists can reflect slower response times.

 

Personally...we've never had more than 25 series links here anyway (which challenges one's time to even view the content)....so the 100 "limit" never came into play.

I have two HD Dvr's, a HR24 and a Tivo.  The HR24 has a limit of 50 and I have yet to hit a limit on the Tivo, even though I have passed 100!  I have been thinking about getting a Genie, but if the limit is 100, I don't think it will work for me.  Once I have a "Season Pass" (Tivo Lingo) that works, I want to leave it in place for next season.  The HR24 has not let me do that.  looks like a Genie will not either!

My Series Links survive from one year to the next. I week pretty thoroughly, so have never hit the limit. I have 200 SLs available. 

 

Genie is sweet!
