    Umm, get one off eBay?

    Actually, I have a couple (unsubscribed), that I bought thinking I had a hardware problem in my TivoHD.. Do you want to buy one basically for shipping? (maybe plus a few bucks, but almost nothing).

    My advice is drop Hawaii 5-0.

    Otherwise does your provider have any on demand stuff? On directv I can get abc and NBC shows, but when they show up is dicey. So if it were me and I didn't drop h50 I would figure out my best on demand shot for the other two and record the third.

    Really though, just stop watching h50. :)

    Directv has NBC and abc on demand. Problem is they don't have all the shows sometimes, episodes can take a long time to show up and in some cases individual episodes are not put up.

    I had to move H50 to my other DirecTV DVR which for reasons involving my apt wiring is SD and not HD. But I can view the show on my main DVR via whole home.

    That's generous, thanks. Let me clear some space in my PMs, and talk to my husband about what's in the budget.

    Obviously, there are tons of HDs on eBay right now, but playing eBay roulette -- ugh. And reading about the problems with the Premiere -- I'd rather have a slow, stable TiVo than a fast, buggy one.

    I don't watch any of the three shows. No problems for me. :)

    Seriously though, whenever I have an issue like this, I download the show off usenet. Usually a 720p file and I stream it to my Blu-ray player. It is actually a better experience since the commercials are cutout. Video is still HD and if there is 5.1 audio, it will be there.

    Mob Doctor got dropped in my schedule due to this problem. Not a great loss. I would check the places that provide free viewings. CBS is the channel that seems the least generous in that regard so if one of the shows is in CBS, I would rely on my Tivo for that one.
