    Yes, we've finally managed it, and left Sweden. We're now settling in Australia, a country with TiVo. I have even seen adverts on TV for it. Lots of them. However, they take me back over a decade to when we had TiVo launched in the UK. It's almost the same stupidly failsome advert.

    "Do you ever wish you could pause this program? Buy a TiVo and you can".

    Yup. That's it. In total. Lots of times. No mention of season passes, the "netflicks" type service, wishlists, learning your likes. Just pausing live TV.

    Aaaargh!

    Welcome to 2000!

    Seriously though, good to hear you've made it safely there - I can't imagine a greater change in environment. Have fun Aussie.

    Hey kitchcamp

    I hope you love Oz as much as I did. Quite a change from Sweden :)

    All the best

    Yup, very much a change, but we're having a great time, and I'm now the proud owner of a TiVo XL. Twin tuners, 1TB, and HD. Very pleased with the purchase.
