I think I could list hundred of reasons I love my TiVo S3, especially because after using an Series 2 for years, I had to use a Hi-Def Cable company box (SA8300HD) without the TiVo software for 10 months, until I was rescued when I got my TiVo Series 3.
Sure I've had some problems, but I think if I couldn't have the TiVo software, I would likely stop watching TV, seriously.
So why am I starting this thread. It could be deceptively negative reading these forums, but just now I was setting my TiVo to record an upcoming show. The latest TiVo update, my TiVo reminded me that it was going to be a live event, and asked if I wanted to set it to record longer in case it runs over. WOW, another great feature. I love TiVo, lets count the ways.
TiVo S3 750 Gig, 90 hours HD, 900 Hours SD, man oh man, what a Now Playing List we have!!! When me and my honey sit down together to watch TV, we can always find something that interests us both, and at the time we want.
