Thanks! I appreciate you posting back to clarify your original post. I am not offended, so no worries! I understand what you are saying, and buyer's remorse can be a pain in the butt. BUT, the I feel that you didn't make a bad choice with your purchase - this box will have a nice resale value if you decide to sell it sometime down the road. BTW, I would like to think that if TiVo added an option to offer a "premium" ad free experience that they would offer this as a choice to existing Lifetime Subscribers as no cost option, as you have already paid for their premium subscription option. I am familiar with the scene, and it has always stuck with me. The bucket part really freaked me out... I honestly feel that you are NOT that fat guy. I offer my opinions on your purchase as a outsider, so I don't want to diminish the way you feel. I understand you are at that "thin mint" point, and you are entitled to those feelings.
