    something similar was already announced that included those two features with a ps2, i believe it's price was around the same ballpark.

    Tim....
    Noted your sig that includes the Steve Steigmann photo...... Wonder if you knew the speaker in the pic is a JBL L100 ? I have a pair of them (bought new in 1978) and they will truly make you hang on to your seat !!!

    I understand that a number of people are upset about this recorder. It's overpriced for one, and it's editing capabilities leave a lot to be desired (or so I read - I have no first hand knowledge) for another. You can't edit out commercials from programs recorded with TIVO. And that makes it a loser in my book.

    I purchased and returned the Pioneer Elite DVR-57H it is a 120 hour TiVo with built in DVD-R/RW has component out that really cleaned up my cable picture even though it only has S-Video inputs. Has a cool feature to copy VHS tapes as well with an additional input.

    Why I returned it: I have a TiVo brand Series 2 80 hour that I put in another room and purchased the home media option with the idea that I could transfer programs and then record them on the Pioneer unit Sorry Charlie this would be too good to be true and it is. You cannot burn DVD's of tranfered programs from TiVo brand Series 2 recorders as the format is not true Mpeg2. The other reason was the cost I paid about $1400 for the Pioneer unit then another $299 for lifetime TiVo and $49 for the HMO. I could build a PVR that would do the same and also burn MP3, CD's, and I could edit DVDs.
