DirecTV seems to be clueless sometimes. Like you I'd buy more DirecTivos if they could be networked.
I'd buy more HDirecTiVos!
Ditto here... I have one HDTiVo and 5 ReplayTVs... Replay seems to be going nowhere with HD, but I sure don't want to run from room to room to watch things recorded in HD. (Signed the petition and glad to see over 11000 names on it!)
BTW, I just started reading this forum after spending six months in the HD TiVo forum solely.... . Either I'm the stupid one or perhaps there are a lot of HD TiVo folks who don't come to the 'plain' DTiVo forum, and some links like to this thread should be posted over there...
Or do most folks with *any* DTiVos frequent this forum also?
I tried but the link seems to be dead.
Its working for me, try it again.
Its working fo me now.
Enough's enough w/Direct TV. I've decided to get rid of my 2 Direct TIVO and replace them with 1 combo DVR w/TIVO (Philips, Toshiba, etc) in one room and 1 standalone series 2 in the other room. This way I can use HMO to transfer programming from the standalone unit to the combo unit and then archive to DVD. Plus TIVO is coming out w/TIVO to Go, which allows archiving to PC.
DTV is so far behind TIVO in adopting new technologies it's ridiculous. I've had enough.
Just signed up 11489...it looks like it may not matter to the DTV but I signed none the less if I could get HMO on my HDTivo I could get rid of the ROKU I have and hate.
Jerryv: Hate to burst your bubble, but the combo units cannot burn content from other Tivo's. Its a resolution problem, the combo units record in a special resolution or something, different ratio/aspect somethin or other.. sucks
11,503 sigs btw
October's almost over---anyone else have "unofficial" news???
Yeah it does suck....I don't know why Tivo hasn't addressed this yet...aparently it's a simple tweak in the SA unit to allow it to record with the compatible resolution...unless I'm missing something.
I apologize for not being able to answer your email individually, as I do get quite a bit of it pertaining to this subject. I've recently received some updated news from DirecTV, and would like to share as much as I can with you.
The good news is that DirecTV is aware of the petition, and I can tell you with some certainty that our voices are being heard. DirecTV contacted me recently as a direct result of the petition. While I can't share the details of the conversation or to whom I spoke, I think I can safely say that our message has been positively received by DirecTV.
I wish I could say more, but unfortunately the best advice I can give you right now is to be patient. Hopefully DTV will make an announcement on this issue soon.
Thanks, and I hope this information proves useful.
I'm very skeptical.
I wonder if they realize how many people WOULD subscribe to their service if they:
A) Offered the HMO with thier boxes.
B) Quit requiring a landline phone connection for their service.
I am #11528.
I have also been sending e-mails to D* asking what their plans are for upgrading the TiVo software, but I have only gotten te stock response of "in the near future." Is that the "near future" in terms of the age of the universe, or can I use a regular calendar to determine the date? I would just get the SA TiVo if it had 2 tuners...
I've heard the same "near future" since I first e-mailed them when HMOwas introduced.
From what I've been told, we are supposed to be adding some new features very soon. However, I like you know that could mean 1 year as I work for them. For anything more exact I really couldn't say but I do know that PiP is coming along with other much requested features (like Caller ID). So I'd not give up hope yet, as several people who work at DTV have told the higher ups that they want these features and its hard to hide from an employee.
