    I am currently looking into purchasing 1 of the 2 mentioned systems. At this point I am looking for feed back on which system you would recommend and why. I know TiVo offer a life time subscription for $249 but does Ultimate TV do the same? If so how much? Thanks for the advice.

    Do you have DirecTV?
    Ultimate TV only works with DirecTV, while TiVo comes in flavors that work only with DirecTV (DirecTiVo) or standalone (which can record from multiple sources (ie. Cable and Satellite)).
    TiVo also offers a $9.95/month option in addition to the $249.99 lifetime option. Don't know if Ultimate has a subscription fee or not.

    Ultimate TV can only be subscribed to monthly or yearly. There is no discount for subscribing yearly.
    Monthly it is $9.95
