There are still lots and lots of Tivo people who don't like the HR20, but you don't want to hear that here.
I think you're wrong there RS4, but let me tell you my story first:
As with many here, I was an early D*tivo adopter. Got my first unit in early 2001. I've been a huge tivo fan for over 6 years now. I have tivo dolls flanking my entertainment center, a tivo guy on my car antenna, and there's a large tivo doll in permanent residence in my 2 year olds crib.
I've been happy with my setup (2 SD D*tivos distributed to the rest of the house - 7 TV's in all), but knew I'd need to do something when I finally switched to HD (bought a new TV 6 years ago that's not HD and have been trying to get the most use out of it, before buying a new main TV). When D* and tivo ended their relationship, I heard a lot of bad things about the machines that D* was putting out (SD and HD). For that reason, I pretty much stopped reading all the D* forums and instead have spent the last 10 months researching FIOS as my next move for when I get my new HD TV this fall/winter.
I started talking to my wife about some of the issues involved with switching providers (she's a bigger tivo fan than I) and she suggested a do some more research into what D* is doing, so I started reading TCF and this forum (and others) again several weeks ago.
What did I discover? Many of the individuals that I knew from years ago as being the biggest tivofanatics ever, were now praising D* and their current products (and future products). These are people that I've respected for years. This is a forum full of people that use these products and know how they perform. I still see a lot of bitching over at TCF, but it's usually from people like yourself that haven't even tried the product.
So, you say there's still lots and lots of tivo people that don't like the HR20. I would bet that if every tivo lover tried the HR20, the majority would like it.
And this is coming from another huge tivo fan that DOESN'T EVEN HAVE AN HR20 YET.
Perhaps you should do as I did and spend the first several weeks here (or back here, in my case) READING and LEARNING what the users have to say, instead of just POSTING what you're heard.
