    Who cares if not all the menus are in HD! They do the job, right?! I didn't buy TiVo to look at HD menus, I bought it for its functionality. I have a Premiere 45 hour, XL4, Mini, and Stream. Mine work fine, just as they were intended to, a good Whole Home set up. And guess what, I have TWC! Which BTW, I am not thrilled about, but I am stuck with them, unless I want to go with satellite, which I don't. With the bundling of TV, internet, & phone, it much cheaper than having a dish on the roof.

    Remember that the ones with problems are the ones who are complaining and moaning. If it works fine, rarely are you going to hear from them. Look at Yelp, UrbanSpoon, and other ratings and review places. More often than not, people go there to air their complaints, less often to praise.

    If TiVoCommunity was an accurate sample of TiVo users, I doubt they would still be in business. And we have the regular TiVo bashers, who love to say anything negative they can about TiVo. Why some of them are still here on TC, I don't understand!

    We use this forum to learn, not be defensive, if you had found another co that just came out with a TiVo equivalent (never mentioned before) that would be informative, just leaving TiVo not so much, as I am sure many people leave TiVo, just look at their churn rate, if everybody that left TiVo posted on this forum.....

    TiVo lost over 72,000 stand alone subs last year, 22,000 last quarter alone.

    That's over 200 people a day that are cancelling because they are having NO PROBLEMS AT ALL!!! :p

    Think about it, that's one person every 8 minutes, 9 people EVERY HOUR, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year that are running for the exits. :eek:

    Oops!! There goes another sub in the time it took to type this post...

    Yea, there's no problem with the hardware. It's all Time Warner's fault!!! LOL!!!l :D

    The OP was told flat out that it was his MSO's fault after stating VERY CLEARLY that between Him, TW and TiVo that it is CLEARLY the TiVo that was at fault.

    Exactly how many times does your MSO have to pay for a truck roll to try to fix something they ARE NOT MAKING ANY MONEY FROM?

    AFAIC TW goes above and beyond trying to pound a square peg into a round hole to please its customers.

    How is that "learning" anything? And don't bother trying to deny the fact that 90% of the people that responded went into MSO attack mode.

    That's about as "defensive" as it gets.

    You are very bitter. If you left TiVo, why are you here?

    Bitter? How does pointing out facts make me "bitter"?

    I'm not the one that's emotionally attached to an inaminate object and feels the need to defend it at all costs. This site is FULL of posts pointing out the warts of this product.

    Just because I don't use my TiVo's doesn't mean I "left"

    I payed my $1400, I have an opinion. An extremely unpopular one, but I've yet to have anyone prove me wrong.

    Just saying...

    What makes you bitter is the fact that you spent $1400 and regret your purchase so you go from thread to thread here spouting off about the same thing over and over with a snarky attitude. You make things up and pass them off as fact (no where in the OP was it CLEARLY determined to be a defective Tivo, the OP actually pointed out dealing with CC and TA issues - those would be TW problems as many have pointed out...oh and TW going above and beyond? Yea, go check out the link I posted earlier with almost 200 pages of TW customer complaints), generalize what's posted here as being true for all Tivo users (not everyone is having problems with their Tivos as has also been stated or there would be millions of posters complaining), and pick and choose which facts you present meanwhile ignoring anything that doesn't support your argument (yes Tivo lost 22k stand alone subs but they also gained 277k MSO subs in that same time, those MSO subs which use the same hardware/software as the Premiere). Frankly, no one wants to deal with you, it's really that simple. And yes, as much as you hate to admit it, you are a troll. You've contributed nothing of value in anything you've posted this year and have only taken every opportunity to take digs at Tivos whether it's faulty hardware, the features, or just the size of the hard drive. You take shots at other posters here trying to get a rise out of them to make yourself look superior. That is the definition of a troll.

    Oh, and you can go ahead and make some smart ass reply and that's fine. I'm done, I've put way more time into addressing you than you deserve.

    It doesn't mean they are all cancellations. A lifetime sub will fall off at some point too. Which will also show up in that same number of lost subscriptions.

    My GF has two of my old S3 lifetime boxes that I got in 2006. She uses them every day. But I don't think she is counted as a subscriber any more.

    If Norma wants to pay TWC to use their DVR, that's his option. Though if he's happy with a TWC DVR, I'm not sure why he rags on Tivo instead of explaining why he likes the TWC DVR. I've used them. They stink.

    Thank you WhiskeyTango. I'm getting sick of her posts popping up everywhere moaning and complaining. TC is supposed to be a place that helps fellow TiVo owners.

    I liked some of his other names on other boards too, but this one is definitely the best. But I do miss the Little DB one.

    When he had his issues with his Premieres and (I think) Time Warner, it helped me decide to stay with DirecTV and keep my S2s over switching to Time Warner. If TWC sold our area to another cable provider I would probably dump DTV in a heartbeat.

    There are still a couple of main areas that need to be updated. i.e. Wish Lists and Browse By Channel. Also the Amazon and Web Video apps are in serious need of an upgrade. The settings menus probably don't matter to most people, but it is a bit strange when some of them flop back and forth. Like the Video Providers menu. You have to navigate through a couple of SD menus to ultimately land on an HD menu. Can be a little jarring.
