I haven't been a very active member of this community the past few years while I was TiVo-less, but I jumped back into the TiVo fold last winter when DirecTV rolled out Phoenix as a test for the new Tivo. I was one of the first people to get one and I was so excited.
Fast forward to 8 months later...and I've had it. I have to say, that with what I have available to me, the DirecTV HD DVR is far superior to what they've allowed TiVo to produce.
The Tivo just makes so many mistakes and is missing so many features that I'm calling them today to see what my options are to getting rid of it. I'm guessing I"m stuck with it and I'll probably just move it to one of my back bedrooms and get things going again with the whole home setup from DTV again.
I just can't believe how disappointed I've been...this TiVo has almost no improvements over the one I used 4-5 years ago, aside from HD and folders.
I'm not sure who's fault it is....Tivo or DirecTV, but it doesn't really matter, I guess in the end when you can't do anything about it. I used to make a pretty good side living years ago modding Tivos for people, so I've been very familiar with them over the years. I'm not making this decision very lightly.
I guess I'm posting to see if anyone can talk me out of it...LOL...or hear other people's experiences and see if anyone else has done the same.
Thanks for listening! I'm looking forward to hearing what people have to say.
