Well, this week looks to be the week I get a Tivo. $50 rebate for the 40 and 80 hr models. I do have a few questions though, that hopefully somebody can help me out with. I have Comcast digital cable, it will work with tivo right? I know I can't record 2 shows at one time(only Direct Tivo does that), but can I watch a live show and record another live show? The Best Buy guy said that I needed a splitter to do that. He also said that he didn't recommend it because it screws up the processor to the Tivo and that it might not record all the show or there might be some skipping. Is that true? I only see a Series 2. Is there a series 3 coming anytime soon? Will there be a tivo coming soon that has HDTV capabilities? I have a 51" widescreen HDTV ready and I wanna know if that is even something that can make use of that in the near future. Should I go for the 40 or 80 hr model? Which one do you guys have? Is 80 hrs just overkill? I know there are different levels of recording quality, so is the 40hrs of recording time taken from the highest level or the lowest level of recording setting? I've also seen places where you can add like a hard drive that you would use for your computer and like triple the storage space--is that dangerous? Is it worth doing or am I just ruining the tivo. Hope all that made sense and I appreciate any help that I can get. I've searched this forum, but couldn't quite get all the answers I was looking for.
