    Hey guys. I just recently bought another TIVO HD for my bedroom. I am paying right now 12.95 for my series 3. When I logged on to sign up my TIVO HD it said I had multi tivo discount of 9.95. Is that 9.95 total a month or 12.95+9.95 a month?

    Thanks

    If you pay yearly, the first TiVo would be $129/yr and the second would be $99/yr. That would save you an average of $3.90/mo, if you ignore tvm.

    Does anyone else find that expensive? I mean TIVO claims "reduce money of your cable bill". Yeah right, cable company is charging me about the same price.. how is it with purchase of my tivo my monthly cable bill went up?

    I don't find it expensive. First a Tivo has more features and it usually better performing then a cable DVR. Also for me to get my cable DVR I would first have to upgrade which would be another $15/month then rent the DVR which is about $12/month. In addition to that for additional I do not get any discounts plus with my cable company DVR I can not transfer shows to my computer or even to the other box.

    That claim was more prevalent earlier on when you could get an analog sereis 2 and not have to get the digital tier of cable just to get a DVR.

    That said I happily pay for and use TiVo DVRs and get great value out of them

    It doesn't really. It allows you to make better use of the cable TV you are paying 24/7 for, in the few hours a day you do watch TV.

    Also, as said, it could mean you don't need an STB, for time-shifted channels (if there are any),as you can record the channels you do get at obscure times.

    The thing that pisses me off to no end is how the Cable Companies make you think you need a digital cable package and a HD cable box in order to receive HD channels.

    I am loving having the in the clear QAM HD locals for free* along with my $10.05/month limited basic service.


    *free as long as my upcoming CC install is an M Card. Also does not factor $17.95 install fee.
