Default I have two Tivo's

a SD model and HD model. Is it worth it? If you are asking the question, probably. Some people don't mind how crappy the DVRs that cable companies provide are... those people don't need a Tivo. Cost wise, it's just about the same where I am. DVR service through Comcast is $16 a month. If you get a cable card from them (to access HD and Extended channels) they will charge you $3 a month and Tivo costs me $13 a month.. so it's a wash but I get a much better box.
