Hi -- been reading thread after thread but not finding anything exactly that will really help me yet. I currently have Tivo Service connected to Time Warner Cable - Los Angeles area. TW is unacceptable in my opinion. From copy protection of all programming outside of broadcast channels, to the tuning adapters that reset and cause problems to quality and even number of outages. I used to have Tivo with Fios and loved that. Now I am going to switch to DirectTV and I know the quality of the service is good. But I am really torn and don't know how to decide about going with the new Tivo service on DirectTV versus the HR34 Home Media Center which looks awfully impressive. I have also read about DirectTV's new HD UI. I love Tivo HD UI. I also like the ability to stream Netflix but that is not a deal breaker. I love Tivo Wish List and ability to auto correct recordings if the program time switches or is on at another time. How does Direct TV compare UI compare? With the new DirectTV-Tivo - can you transfer between rooms like you can with my regualr TIVO set up --and if so does Direct TV copy protect everything thereby rendering that capability useless? How are people enjoying the HR34 -- it seems spec wise awesome and I love the high recording capacity and 5 tuners! Has anyone else been in my situation or made a similar decision and if so what swayed you one way or the other. I have 2 TVs - bedroom and living room. Thank you! I look forward to hearing people's thoughts and direction so I can decide.
