Advertisements 2 nasty discoveries: 1. Went to tape baseball playoff series and was blocked on TIVO but I could watch it on regular cable. Went to tape a film on Spike and ,once again, BLOCKED! This is the first time I have used TIVO and I am wondering why I paid $200 for the curved (?????) WHITE BOX IF IT "FILTERS OUT" REGULAR CABLE STATIONS! Am I better off without it? Is there anything worth watching that can be taped on TIVO? 2. Tape of NFL games on sunday were grainy and hazy. Why wouldn't they be as sharp as my large picture samsung? I must be 3 years old; I am trusting a large company! Anyway, returned the TIVO and cancelled the annual contract. P.s. Tivo website took 40 minutes of my time, gave me numbers and when I called customer service I was told that somehow I had no info in their system and so had to start all over again. It got so confused that the customer service rep. had to enter my info manually! How could TIVO sell a product with inferior picture quality? Checked cable hookup for loose wires-nothing!
