Programability is the best feature

 

This is my third Tivo. The first was regular definition and had a DVD burner built in. The second was HD but could not record and watch shows simultaneously. The Premier does it all.

Replaces your cable box and makes it extremely easy to record programs. Beautiful picture and THX surround sound. TiVo programming allows you much control over your recordings. You can set it up to record a whole season of shows with just a few clicks....

A subscription from TiVo is needed to utilize all of the program features. The cable company reps did not know how to set it up and had to come out 3 times to get it right. "On Demand" feature from cable company does not work with the cablecard....

TIVO PREMIERE is Alright ”

 

As a Tivo HD user, I pre ordered the Tivo Premiere on spec, and am unfortunately paying the price. This has almost no new features, period. The UI has been revamped, but once you get 2 or so menus deep, you almost always end up back at the old UI,...

Tivo Premier XL

 

I have to say Tivo came a long way in reintroducing their product.  The Premier XL model is worth considering.  Take into consideration the built in features, TV/Listing Guides, Net Flix, You Tube, On Deman Music/Movies, THX certification (picture...
