    I want this forum to be a place where TiVo fans can feel safe. I know there will be some of you who aren't big TiVo fans. This is your ONE and ONLY thread for stating that.

    This is not a license to be rude to each other. Please keep it friendly.

    Each to their own and not bashing anyone.

    But the HRxx have all I want, and have a lot more opportunity for new features.

    I remember when the HR20 first came out and all the Tivo users bashed it and would have to have their Tivo "prized from their cold dead hands" and now wouldnt have this new one if you paid them :)

    So maybe in a few years Tivo will be better, but it has a long way to go to catch up in my opinion.

    I like whole world dvr (I know it doesnt exist yet but it will come soon) where all my programming is available on all my devices (tablets, computers, receivers etc.) from my dvr where ever I am. I think the HRxx has that possibility in the near (1 or 2 yrs) future.

    While I've still got a few TiVo dolls laying around the house, my fanboi status was revoked long ago.

    Got rid of my last D*TiVo about 4 years ago and don't know why I waited so long.

    (I do like the remote though)

    I do like the fact that it's an option for those that really prefer Tivo, and do hope it greatly improves and gets up to a level of the newer equipment. There was a time I missed my Tivo, but am happy with the regular boxes.

    I hope folks enjoy their long-awaited Tivos. For me that ship sailed in the mid-2000's but to each their own. I just hope people aren't let down by missing features. :(

    If this was a few years ago this 'fanboy' would have been chasing down and jumping all aboard this band wagon. But then the HR's and Whole-Home Express came cruising down the road and I got on and haven't missed Tivo really since.

    I would have been interested 2-3 years ago...but with this said:

    It looks like a relic from the past.

    Definitely happy I didn't stay with DirecTV while waiting around for this. I would have been upset. Love my current setup of TiVos and Windows Media Center, and I don't see that changing any time soon.

    Still waiting to hear from the few friends and family members that didn't switch from DirecTV years ago if they will be picking this up.

    I just don't get why people are so gaga over Tivo. Not trying to have a go at them but I truly don't understand the appeal. Is it a nostalgia thing? Is it about fearing change? From what I can tell, the HR24 is light years ahead of this "new" Tivo unit. And they pay an extra $5/mo for LESS features? Are we talking about a blind loyalty type of situation?

    Anyone?

    I am going to assume you went to cable then?

    What do you get with Tivos and Windows Media Center? Can you tell us some features? I am intrigued as to what you get by plugging in Windows Media Center.

    Given the slew of great features on the current HD DVRs, I am trying to marry them up to the Tivo + WMC.

    Thanks

    I'd rather have the HR34. Like other said above three years too late

    My first DVR was the DirecTV R15, so that is what I learned first and became familiar with. I specifically bought an R10 (Tivo based DVR) shortly after that because of all the comparisons I was reading (both at Tivo Community and DBSTalk) about how poorly the R15 stacked up against the Tivo. After giving the R10 a pretty fair workout, I decided I preferred the DirecTV implementation and have not looked back.

    For those who prefer the Tivo implementation, I sincerely hope the THR22 provides what you are looking for, and that it continues to mature and offer more features, just as the HR2x series have. But, as evidenced by my posting in this thread, it's not for me.

    If this were 2008, I'd be ready to stand in line for this. Sadly though, that ship has sailed and sunk. The HR series, while going through growing pains, has become better than anything I ever wanted from a TiVo.

    I'm happy for those whose dreams are finally coming true. Congrats, you've been VERY patient. Have fun! :)

    I had planned to get one for the "suggestions" feature, however, with the fee's and lack of features, I chose to upgrade to the HR34 instead. I still love my Premier (hooked to OTA) for recording the networks and playing Pandora.
