Advertisements On Monday I received my new Tivo HD but the idiots at UPS simply left it on the front porch in 30-degree weather even though I had left a note not to do that. I requested that they either leave it with a neighbor or re-try on Tuesday when I could be home and wait for them. Because it was outside in the cold for anywhere from 3-10 hours I decided I would let it sit inside for a couple of days and warm up so there'd be less of a shock to the electronics. Made it through guided setup ok and scheduled a recording. I watched some of the show and then went back out to change some settings, then attempted to re-join the show. When I selected "play" the show never started, it just sat there with the Tivo background. I tried hitting the Tivo button to get to the main menu and it worked but this time the menu text displayed with nothing but a grey background! All the settings and menus worked but neither my recorded show nor any of the Tivo videos would play. Once I rebooted all was fine but I noticed that when I started to play something there'd be a flash of screen garbage and loud static-y noise when the video started. Thankfully Tivo is sending me a new unit, this time by FedEx so the clueless gorillas at UPS won't get their hands on it but it's frustrating to say the least. Be warned that if you're ordering from Tivo and live in a cold climate that you should request FedEx.
