Just went to FIOS from DirecTV due to deteriorating service. FIOS/motorola has lousy DVRs so I bought a TiVo HDXL.
My biggest annoyance (and there are a few) is the fact that if I want to see what I have recorded, the TiVo turns off the live show I am watching. It doesn't do this in the guide, but does in the TiVo menu and any of its sub-menus.
Is there a way around this? I hate missing part of a game while I check on something else.
My overall impression is positive but this one thing is a real thorn in the side.
