I have a TIVO and love it, but my cable company offers the DVR service at cheaper price + HD service, which is tempting. My main question revolves around connecting multiple comcast boxes via a HOME NETWORK, and benefits gained from it. With Tivo Series 2, you can view one movie from anoter location, as long as the TIVO's are hooked together. I don't want to get comcast boxes if I can't have similar benefits. Of course, COMCAST is little help on the phone.
