As others have noticed, and noted, you seem to have started this thread looking for sympathy and attention. It would seem you were not "done with TiVo", but looking to find people that would fall-in and back your complaint, and make you feel better. I'd say that didn't work out as (apparently) planned. Plenty of people post things to the effect that they are leaving TiVo (as in not keeping what they have, and never buying anything more), then leave, never to post here again. Some just vent their complaints, and are never heard from again, without playing the "loyal customer" card. I would not criticize you in your absence. You have it backwards. That you continue engaging, rather than disappearing, suggests you are very invested in what people think of you, and how they feel about you. While some leave TiVo and remain active on TCF, most who do don't seek out approval, or an acknowledgement that their decision was justified. Take a moment and realize that you aren't helping your case any, and are just digging a deeper hole, while standing in it. I've had more than my fair share of problems with TiVo, and wish most of them were as minor as being billed for a full month of TiVo service for a unit not using that month. That's not even a TiVo problem, it's TiVo policy. Nobody has ever made the argument that you used as the foundation for your declaration, and succeeded in swaying community opinion. If you think you'll be the first, you are delusional. If you think you will be some folk hero if you state you have decided to stay with TiVo, you are delusional.
