I picked one up this PM. Activation had a minor glitch on line. I called TIVO CS and they said it couldn't be activated until tomorrow. Tried the online activation a second time and it went right through. There was no delay after activation. I went to the TV and the setup process was a snap. So far everything is as advertised and as other posters have noted. I am very happy with the small form. It replaces a Verizon DCT700, and gives me HD, guide and bells and whistles of a normal DVR. A big step forward!!
