CommentI have only used Chinese clones of the DM500S - the realthing is 5x the price.

You will need to set the TiVo to not transmit leading zeros.

ProsFully cusomtisable. You can upload one of various firmware versions. I recommend PLI Iolite or Jade.
You can receive channels from more than one provider on the same box - eg Sky and Freeview
Card sharing!
ConsWill need to buy a decent power supply to replace Chinese one.
IR codes in OzTiVo database don't work perfeectly on all boxes.
Channels can only be numbered sequentially - will need channel remapping in MFS
