I'll Never Recommend TIVO Again by GR8 CADMAN
I own a series 1 Tivo and I love it. I bought it when they 1st came out and upgraded it with an 80 & 120 gig HD. Things were perfect for years. Until. I bought my wife a series 2 unit this week and I went to activate it. After slogging my way through a voice system from hell I was informed...

Is Big Brother TiVo Watching? by Joseph Morrow
I heard on the news today that TiVo reported a record spike of TiVo viewers rewinding and watching over and over the Janet Jackson/Justin Timberklake "booby stunt" during the half time show at the Super Bowl. How does Tivo know what it's subscribers are doing or watching? This sounds a little too...

MythTV - any users? by Shawn Barnhart
"Rod Smith" wrote in message ... All in all, systems preloaded with MythTV might one day make good consumer DVRs. Today, though, my impression is that MythTV's drawbacks are big compared to its advantages over TiVo, and...

Change Back to Standard Time by Jazz_Azz
Well, once again, here on the West Coast, they have really screwed with the time change, not going back to Standard Time until the first weekend of Nov. Me being fairly new to TIVO, I assume, that the box will know and auto change on network time??? Two of my three VCRs do it automatically. But...

I got kidnapped by Time Warner :-----((( by Zalek Bloom
I wanted to add new cable box for my cable TV - Time Warner wants $10/month for a box. I bought a cable box on the street the same one I have - for $30. After connecting to a cable it says "call operator" - so I called. They told me that they will not support this box - I have to buy a box from...

Tivos Become Doorstops in 2009? by gmark
Am I right in assuming that the series 1 or 2 Tivos (non-HD) will become useless as of Feb. 2009, when all TV goes digital? Also, I have the lifetime service contract which is marked "transfers allowed" in the record on the Tivo website for my account. I didn't notice this before, and assumed it...

My TiVo has been struck dumb by John Rowland
Hi all, I bought a second-hand TiVo a while ago, and in the last day or two it's started misbehaving. In particular, Channel 4 has gone mostly silent, with just the odd snatch of sound every few minutes, and BBC2 seems to be similarly affected, although the silences on BBC2 are much shorter....

no subscription = useless TiVo .. this is rediculous by Ken
*Rant on* Ok, well my credit card was over its limit, so I canceled it and let TiVo expire for a while. I understood that I would no longer get the channel guide, and season passes would cease to work. However, what happened is beyond unacceptable and as such I will never resubscribe to...

What is the best PC Software Tivo app for use with PC and dual tv tuner card? by Burt Reynolds
Hello, Having just acquired a shiny new PC with a dual TV tuner card (Lumanate/Emuzed Angel PCI Mpeg) I was wondering what the best TVR/DVR/Tivo type software is for recording TV and such. I have tried Cyberlink Home Cinema, and it's pretty basic but seems geared for the simple minded, in my...

TiVo vs. T-W 8300 DVR by Ben Wall
While I'm making up my mind about what service to use, I picked up the Time Warner Explorer 8300 box to have something to use and to check it out. Now the 8300 looks pretty good to me ... anyone know any good reason I should dump it and get the TIVO DT box ? I kind of miss some of the operations...

Why not update Tivo 1 software? by AKA Gray Asphalt
I would like the delete improvement and alphabetization of "Now Playing" on my Tivo 1, as well as the Tivo 2. Since both units are paying a subscription it would seem advantageous to Tivo if I kept my Tivo one and didn't buy a Cox unit for $5 or $6/month with no charge for the unit. I don't expect...

New Tivo!!! by Jack Stringer
Hello all, I got my Tivo today. I got the 40 hour series 2 because my understanding is that it is easy to upgrade the harddrive. So, I assume that I need an IDE drive, but how big can it be? can I put in a 300 Gig Drive? I read here that the second drive "Marries" the first one. Does the...
