Can someone please put me out of my misery please ? I have been deciding whether to follow the tivo or Sky + route for a pvr for a while now . Prefering tivo due to features and life subcription option. But unsure because of 1. lack of 5.1 Dolby Digital ( I only have dpl 1 not dpl 2 on my amp ). 2. Picture quality -TiVo has to MPEG encode the signal in real time which means the quality will not be as good as Sky+ . This obviously is subjective but has anyone experience of using tivo on a large 51 inch projection tv recording from sky ? What mode/level would be acceptable ? It took me a long time to decide on the Tv and picture quality against its rivals and it was the deciding factor in the end . Please help me out of my quandary . Its nearly impossible to find a store selling tivo , but to find one which could demo me one on a rptv would be impossible .
