[MOD: The TiVos wooting today do NOT do Over The Air recording.]
[MOD: The previous comment was added by digidorm.]
I got a smaller TiVo a year ago with lifetime subscription and cancelled my cable completely.
I do like TiVo's suggestions, which other DVR's don't do. When there's room on the DVR (and even my smaller TiVo has lots of room) it will record stuff I MIGHT want to watch and put them in a separate queue... if my records need more space it just quietly deletes some suggestions. Handy for when you've watched everything in your queue and nothing good is on.
Edit: Since I'm off the cable grid, I got a cheap S-Video to RF converter box, and "back-feed" the TiVo to the rest of the house on channel 3 using the cable that was already run. (I lose HiDef but no big deal for kitchen/workout rooms) Combined with a wireless IR repeater, I was able to turn the TiVo into a whole-house system in less than an hour for under $50. (As long as everyone watches the same thing.)
I've been here longer than WootBot.

We loved TiVo, BUT we gave up all forms of mainstream TV programming about 8 months ago - no cable, no rabbit ears, no satellite....soooooo I do miss it a little, but I get a LOT more done. ;)
We didn't sell it though, in case we want to go back. LOL It's the best DVR hands down.
