    I have 2 HR10-250 tivos which work great. The reason I cant make the switch now is, I do not want to lose my New York HD locals. I get my reg. locals on the OTA antenna. This works great for baseball and football. I am not renewing my football package this year. Between the different HD locals I have quite a few selections. Anyone else have this same situation?

    Maybe next year

    Pull the trigger, I've retired my hr10-250 to the basement tv and haven't missed it one bit. Plus, your hr10 won't be able to receive the new lineup of hd programs when D* launches their new sats.

    Oh how I envy you!

    I "upgraded" to two HR20s 'cos I can't get HD locals here (too far from an antenna for OTA and a crap cable provider) and I hate them with a passion! Give me an HR10 any day!

    Even my wife, who is the first to admit that she's technologically challenged, says the same thing. She even sits there making "padoop, padoop, padoop" sounds!!!!!!

    I have had nothing but a posetive experience with my 2 boxes and was like you wanting to hold on to my Tivo but I am glad I made the change. The reason I did it was to get NESN in HD and glad I did as it looks great can't wait to see the Sox in HD this year

    I have upgraded, but I have also invested in a new HD TERK ant. I want to keep my HD TIVO as long as I can. No reason to turn off the TIVO if you can use it to record over the air HD. It works...keep it too.

    Depending on your needs, I'd say go for it. I had a rough time with mine for the first few months, but they've got it working to the point where most of my issues are 'minor' in comparison to the RBR and constant missed or bad recording that I had going for a while. I was on this site daily and now I only cruse by once, twice a week to check for any major updates or issues.
