24 hours?

The price is reasonable if you can use it on multiple TVs in one house. However, only space enough for 24 hours of HD content is a joke. Tivo has offered 45 hours of HD content on the Premiere since 2010.

Still not available in New Jersey

I am on the phone with Cablevision now and they are telling me that no one in New Jersey can get DVR+ yet. According to the Rep the earnings call stated that all of the areas are completed EXCEPT New Jersey. A schedule will be published soon for New Jersey but it will take several months for the entire New Jersey footprint to be completed.

Yes but TiVo you have to pay for the box and pay monthly for the service. the cablevision one is cheaper.

You can pay Cablevision $10.95 per month forever for less capacity or you can buy a Tivo and pay for lifetime service and eventually own it. The choice is: rent to own (but never own) or buy and eventually own. Hint: one could save you money in the long run.

How can it save you money in the long run? Its about $4 more a month service wise then the cheapest box is $150. That's a years worth of DVR service without taking into account the $14.95 a month.

This is not taking into account the TiVo becoming useless if cablecard stops being used and having to get a new box.

Cablevision is working on downloadable security which may do just that.

With the TiVo you have residual value. A TiVo with Lifetime service has a high resale value. So at some point down the road you can sell the TiVo to cover most of the cost to upgrade to a newer model with lifetime. I've gone through over eighteen TiVos during the last seven years. Each time selliing my older lifetime boxes for newer ones. The sales of the older boxes covered around 80% to 100% of the cost of the newer lifetime boxes. If i had been using FiOS or Comcast DVRs during that entire time, I would have spent much more money.

Which anyone buying an old use box is just crazy when going out to buy a brand new box that is current. It's like buying a 5+ year old Mac for the price of a new one. people think the resell value is there when in fact it isn't. Also make sure you note that Tivo uses the Internet to update itself. So anyone that has a capped connection gets to take that into cost as well.

You can only use your Tivo box in one room right? With cable vision you can use it in any room and record multiple things at once.
