Comment Re:NON-Tivo DVR (Score 1) 603

Well, first off, I do keep things around for long periods of time. I think I still have some Good Eats episodes from a marathon that ran over 2 years ago sitting on my Tivo. I moved recently, and even though I was on Comcast, and kept Comcast, I had to turn in all my equipment and get new equipment at the new place. I'm guessing that would spell the end of any programming kept on the Comcast DVR.

Secondly, over the long run, it makes more sense price wise. You can currently get a 80 hour TiVo for $99, and lifetime service is $300. Within about 2.5 years of use, the price of that, and the price of $13/mo for a Comcast DVR, will be the same. After that point, the TiVo is essentially free, while you're still paying $13/mo for the Comcast DVR.
