    Tivo made a remote that looks like a bone and my dog ate it. :eek:

    Maybe I can start a class action lawsuit to get back my $20 bucks.

    The coupon will only be good with Tivo.com and will only be for about 5% off the purchase price - and you will have to pay shipping. That is after the lawyers collect about 150 million for their services to get you a coupon worth about $2.50, maybe.

    It would be better if we could get congress to bail us all out. I figure, with the government in charge of Tivo remotes, in about five years and 50 billion dollars - you will have a remote twice the size that is solar powered (no batteries cause those are harmful, and the government forgot to include them anyway). And it will only cost about $100 each, not including shiping, from Tivo.gov, but don't worry - you get a $50 tax credit, if you fill out the right forms and can afford an accountant to figure out the 30 pages of requirements to earn the credit.

    LOL, The funny part of this is that my Dog did actually did eat my first Tivo remote some 10 years ago. As was said about the "other" thread, I thought it might be an April Fools joke, turned out that other thread was just a fools joke.

    Funny thing is he leaves my Harmony remote (which suffers the same affliction) alone. Lucky for him.

    I called Tivo today about this issue and their CSRs are very rude. I explained that my dog ate my remote and that it was all their fault... to my surprise they were not sympathetic about the situation. The CSR had the audacity to blame me for leaving the remote on the floor and said that if I had not done this then my dog would not have been tempted by their poor judgment in design.

    There must be some way to make them pay for their arrogance and my misfortune.

    Next thing will be a lawsuit against the initial designer of the surf board for making people look like shark food.

    They should be able to avoid that if they put a prominent warning label on all surfboards...

    Great advertising. The TiVo Remote: Fits great in your hand and in your dog's mouth.

    I love the surfboard comment! "Warning: Use of this surfboard will make you look like a fish, which are easily consumed by sharks. If wearing a black wetsuit, you will look like a seal, which are also easily consumed by sharks."

    Well, if Tivo had just put a warning label on my remote then maybe I would not have this problem. However, I'm not sure that he can read just yet. He's only 8 months old.
