I am not familiar with this DVR, I had the Scientific Atlanta DVR some time back. For my money, TiVo is the only way to go. Better features and ergonomics. It's a real blast to hack too.
I agree with the Tivo, but we're trying to econimize and my wife doesn't want me to spring for the upfront costs of a lifetime sub. While the monthly payments on top of a cable card monthly lease isn't that smart financially. If I only get the hddvr with no other stb, I'm only paying $6 extra a month compared to just hd which will work for us in the short-term. After a year, I could convince her to go the Tivo route or upgrade my HTPC with a cable card tuner.
