My point though, is lack of Prime EPG going to stop anyone from buying the tivo device? I don't think so, I just think they wont watch sky.
It stopped me. That and the $920 price point meant that I bought a MagicTV for $700.
Does the magicTV have the 8 Day EPG for prime? Where does it come from, EIT or mheg5?
And yes I understand there's a recession and all that, but a $200 diffierence isn't that much (when you're talking a total of $700-$900). I suppose it's 20%. But the tivo is supposed to include the ondemand features and the streaming/multi tivo functionality. If they work properly, then surely that's worth the extra $200?
If you were not in the market for ondemand at all then yes I can understand going for the cheapest dual tuning PVR you can get.
My personal opinion btw, I don't work for Tivi, wont be buying one etc (have my own pvr). Just interested in your decision process.
