Why SA @ 60 Hours Vs. 35 hours DTivo

(Click here to view the original thread with full colors/images)



Posted by: Kevin

Was wondering why the new DTivo only have 35 hours versus a Stand Alone having 60 hours?

I'm nervous about upgrading a brand new DTivo but want more hours.

Can a SA and DTivo co-exist?

Thanks,
kevin

That's 60 hours at low quality. DTivo's always record at highest quality since they just record the stream off of the satellite. And ofcourse, both are completely upgradable in terms of drive-size, so you can easily go to 100+ hours if you'd prefer.

They can co-exist, but if you have DirecTV, sell of your SA tivo if you have one and just get another DTivo. They are really the best way to go if you have DirecTV due to being able to record 2 programs at 1 time...

I'm curious what makes you say this. As far as I know, no one has purchased a Series 2 DTiVo, nor has any one tried to upgrade one. While logic might state that if the S2 SA is upgradable than the S2 Combo would be as well, but I wouldn't be so sure. S2 SA is Branded by TiVo, and TiVo is in control of the content. S2 combo is branded by Hughes/DirecTV, and DirecTV controls the content. Further, it has happenned before that more technological "countermeasures" exist in the S1 combo product than the S1 SA product, and since DTV is selling these things so cheap......

Of course, I don't know anything about the upgradabillity of this unreleased product, but I'm not going to ASSume anything about it either. If you have information to the contrary and know that S2 Combos can be upgraded, please let us know!

A 60 hour standalone TiVo is capable of recording about 17 hours of video at a quality anywhere near that of a DirecTiVo. Plus you get stereo sound instead of Dolby Digital.

felon you got that aquarium in your tivo?


edit: no its not =( that would be awsome in tivo push a button on the remote and that comes on.

If they had a TiVo with a 400 MHz CPU and a Direct3D chipset, maybe. :)
