Hi all, I am new here and I sure I will be spending quite some time here.

I have 2 fully working DTivos but I got a good deal on 2 free HR20s and a new dish, so I went for it. But after reading here, i now have doubts.

Is the HR20 really that bad? I am not a Tivo fan, so I don't care about losing the little logo and stuff like that, All I really care about is dual tuners, season pass and local HD.

Any input is appreciated. :D

In the past month I have returned one leased HR10 and sold my owned HR10, so that I now have two HR20s in my house, at no expense to me. I'm very happy with my decision.

It's difficult to say whether you will like the HR20 or not. According to the most recent poll results 47% of respondants gave the HR20 a grade of "C" or lower. The remaining 53% gave it a grade of A or B.

In other words, it's about a 50/50 chance that you'll like it.

Best of luck.

As to your question in the title of this thread, did you make a mistake?

Depends on how your HR20s work for you. Some report few bugs, others think the HR20 is a POS. That's been hashed over in various threads to death.

Only you will be able to answer your question. Good luck. And do report back to us on your experiences.

In all likelihood, yes, he made a mistake. He asked for our opinion. :D

Sorry - bad day, couldn't resist.
