Given that the Premiere now supports Amazon Prime Video, I'm debating whether I should buy it. FYI - I already get free shipping on Amazon through my brother's account. If I bought my own Prime, it would solely be for the streaming content. What's your opinion?
I was thinking of keeping it pretty simple with a cable box DVR, Xbox360, and then I was thinking about investing in a netbox and installing XBMC up in there so that I can play old video games and get all of the streaming goodness that comes with XBMC. I was thinking of ditching the cable box DVR and going with Tivo instead, but other than that, is there anything that I am missing? Any suggestions?
1TB drive earlier. Over the past few weeks I'd thought about springing for a TiVo Premiere -- the UI on my Scientific Atlanta box is just awful -- but for an investment of just $65 I was able increase my DVR's recording capacity ten fold. And since actually watching a TV show will be the same whatever box I use, it seemed like this was a better value for my money than any other option right now.
I called up and they are aware of the problem. Waiting for software fix. For now switched back to older SD interface and it seems ok.
Does anyone know if current TiVo accessories (i.e. USB wireless adapter, WD My DVR Expander) will be compatible with the Premier/Premier XL?
I have not yet seen any confirmation regarding local video streaming of video files (VOB/ISO/H.264/MPEG2/MKV/etc). Can anyone enlighten me?
Wrote up an article for this here: http://bit.ly/dB927Z. Basically I think it is an evolutionary step in the right direction for Tivo but falls short of being what it should as gateway to media content in a network.
Having just gotten rid of our old Tivo HD, I'm wondering what's so compelling and amazing about this upgrade? Is it new Tivo software? Does the hardware do something the previous model lacked? I dunno, I'm just not feeling the same way I used to feel about this.
As a long time TiVo user, I'm very excited for this upgrade. Furthermore, I'm wondering what exactly I'll get to replace in my entertainment center. It's difficult to see exactly what we can do from the press event details, could this be something that could take the place of Boxee and Hulu? Or even my Apple TV? I'm all for simplifying my gadgets by having one take the function of many, so the possibilities are very exciting!
