Krista and I just moved. We're taking the opportunity to revisit the HD DVR landscape. We used Comcast's HD DVR in our old apartment. Pros: great price, two tuners. Cons: slow, buggy, bad UI. I'd like a more polished UI this time around (i.e. something Tivo-like) . Should I spring for DirecTV's HD Tivo or should I sit tight with Comcast until the series 3 Tivo comes out? I'm leaning toward the latter. Posts like this worry me about the future extensibility/compatibility of the DirecTV Tivo. I want to be able to take advantage of new features like Tivo to Go as they come out. Maybe I should build a MythTV backend. Seems like a lot of work though. I'd want two HD tuners. If I go the MythTV route, do I want Comcast, DirecTV, Dish, or something else? I'd go OTA, but with the new Sopranos season starting, HBO is an absolute requirement for Krista.
