515 - best gear I have ever bought (Oct 2000), but I am getting frustrated with the picture quality. I'm not sure it will survive my eventual move to a 42" or bigger screen. However I have a V+ box in the other room, and if that is the best the competition can offer then maybe I will endure the poor picture to keep all the other great Tivo exclusive features.
Got mine donkey's years ago (with lifetime sub). Had to replace HD (from TiVoland) a few years ago but other than that, it's been incredibly reliable.
Still the dogs b*llocks in terms of usability IMO. I'm keeping mine until one of us dies. ;-)
519 and trying to convert others!
521 522 -two more
now being held to ransom by sky so want to go freeview/freesat (not "freesat from sky" ..
got to find a Tivo compatible box
526 (spare #1)
527 (spare #2)
taid - Bush BFSAT02SD Black Freesat SD for £48.99 at Argos
528 - good to see this forum is still active (like my TiVo...)
Why not just unsubscribe from Sky and continue using the unsubscribed Sky box with your Tivo on which you will still receive all the main channels and far more channels than a Freesat box can currently get in its EPG.
Bought my Tivo in Feb 2001 with a lifetime sub. It now sits next to a Humax 9300 and the Tivo is superior in every way - especially when recording series which have to be checked every week on the Humax. Long live Tivo.
I bought my Tivo in Feb 2001 with a lifetime sub. A friend upgraded it in 2002, not sure what he did but it has two hard drives. Just removed the outer case to get rid of all the DUST. And I'm keeping mine until one of us dies. ;-)
532 Mums one
Bought ours in 2001 and upgraded the drive 2 yrs later .........and touch wood that drives still going 24/7 six years later
Both are lifetimed subs
533 Had one for about 6 yrs now I think. Its just gone wrong and we are looking to change the drive. We just love it and my wife is complaining lots about missing eastenders.
Just wish it could record two channels at once, a new tivo for the uk market would be ace.
I take it you are aware of www.tivocentral.co.uk, www.tivoheaven.co.uk and www.tivoland.com They all provide pre-configured replacement drives for a Tivo that you can just drop in.
Or see the DIY guide at www.steveconrad.co.uk/tivo/upgrade3.html
Yeah, thanks Pete for that. I have upgraded the drive to a single 250gb a few years ago. I have a bak file backup and thought that I would just plop it on a new drive as the old 250gb is knackered.
Thought about one of these Western-Digital-WD2500AVJB-AV-250GB-7200rpm-8MB-Cache-35-PATA-IDE-100-CE hard drive at savastore (wont let me post link) as it says it is for consumer av units but I have heard that there is probs with WD drives. Is this one OK or am I just better going for the green power SATA drive?
I believe many of the latest Western Digital IDE drives won't work in a Tivo along with many of the latest Seagate IDE models due to firmware issues.
The Green Western Digital or Samsung SATA drives do work so long as you use the correct IDE to SATA converter. Tivoheaven and Tivcentral I think both sell a converter that they guarantee will work in a Tivo.
