There's an option on that page to buy just the box ($249) and pay $12.95/mo for the service. That would save you abuot $150 up front. Plus the $13/mo shouldn't be too hard to find.

Is the DVD recorder option worthwile? Is there an easier (or cheaper anyway) way to get the content off to a PC? Once on a PC it could be recorded w/ a ~$50 DVD-RW drive..

But TiVo (read: the MPAA) probably doesn't let you do that easily. So what's the deal, you copy to DVD and then do whatever you like w/ it? Or are the DVD's you end up w/ 'special' DVDs that contain some sort of TiVo DRM system on them?

GF's getting TiVo for xmas (gift from her mum). I may have to read up on that.. maybe it's worth the extra scratch.

I pay dish network 5 bucks a month, and I get two receivers. 1 HD receiver (not DVR) and one 100 hour 2 tuner DVR with all the features. No complaints here.

Well I almost might as well just go ahead and pay the service for a year since you get 150 bucks off instantly which pays for the subscription itself.

Well I just bought my wife a Tivo for christmas. Best buy had a sweet deal going on. I just got the 40 hour tivo. $200 regularly, got a $150 rebate, so only pay $50, plus get 3 months free service. Cant wait till she opens it up on christmas and see her reaction.

Funny I should see this thread; the DishNetwork guy is in my house right now installing Dish (with DVR). Can't wait till it's done! This is a major television upgrade for my family.
