    Any former Beta Testers get a gift this week from Tivo?

    I was sent something but am out of town and will not know for a week what is in the box. Suspense is killing me.

    Hrm... anyone else wonder about that smile on the face? I've never questioned it on the logo before, but I'm not sure in this case the smile is completely innocent...

    Do new cars even have those kinds of antennas any more? Seems like most new cars I see, like for the last 10 years, have the shark fin type in the roof.

    FYI me and my wife met on this forum, when we got married I made a little bride and groom cake topper using two of those antenna guys.

    Edit: Here is a picture....

    I may or may not have been a recent tester, but I can say I haven't received anything and if I was a tester, I was an active one... =(

    First rule of fight club...

    I got a big huge umbrella with little Tivo's on it. Sadly though I really dont use umbrellas, but it was a nice gift. I got a stuffed Tivo too, but those were both a few years ago.

    My first shipping notice from FedEx said the weight was six pounds. Thought it might be a Romio or something.

    The revised notice said 2 pounds in an 8x6x6 box. I'm thinking a remote. Ho hum. I guess I wont fly back early to open the box.

    Love the wedding cake!!!!!

    I received a Tivo USB charger which my spouse claimed immediately.

    I was a very active tester and reported a lot of issues. I'm no longer a tester probably because I reported a lot of issues.

    If anyone has a TiVo toaster they want to part with, I would be willing to pay a reasonable price.

    It's a power block that you can use to charge your smart phone (android or iphone) while on the go. At least that's what I think he's referring to.

    I got one of those at one point too (haven't been a tester in a while) The lightning cable that came with it didn't work though. Said something about it being unauthorized or something when I plugged it into my iPad. It's also only 0.5A so it's really slow at charging most modern stuff. Tried to use it recently on my Surface 3 and it said "plugged in, not charging". I assume it uses more then that just running so you need more amps to actually charge.
