Please help. I'm a newbee to TiVo. I currently subscribe to DirecTV. Which brand has the most features for about $250: Sony, Phillips, Hughes, ?others? I can handle hardware and software upgrades.

All series 1 DTivos are exactly the same with mostly cosmetic differences. If you plan on doing any serious hacking with the DTivo then stick with one of the series one models. DTV is running an unadvertised special on DTivos for $159.00 plus shipping to existing DTV subscribers. I believe they are shipping series 2 DTivos to subscribers that take advantage of the deal. Check out the Tivo Community Forum for details (http://www.tivocommunity.com/). They are currently down for maintenance so you'll have to keep checking to see when they're back up.
