I am not happy with the service from my local cable provider and am looking into getting DirecTv. I am also very interrested in Tivo. I like the Home Media advantages of the Series 2 unit (schedule away from home, network MP3s). 1) Are there any plans for a DirecTivo unit that will incorporate these features? 2) DirecTivo is $4.99/month. Series 2 is $299 lifetime. Should I be OK accepting $4.99 a month condsidering there is probably new technology down the road that I would like to purchase anyhow. 3) What do you recommend: waiting, DirecTivo, Series 2. 4) If you have experience with DirecTivo let me know what you think of the service. I have already heard rave reviews from Series 2.
