    Ahh....

    So back to the harping on the HR10-250 again with Robert and Value Electronics... Just because you and some others had a bad experience...... negates the 100's if not thousands of transactions that went on (and still go on today) without a hitch.

    And "won't reveal their sources".... your kidding me right?

    I seemed to be a "tad" right on the HR20... just a bit... Mid August... When I said it back in June... But I guess it doesn't count as a release........

    And let's see... based on my latest updates to the update...... I guess "updates" to state that things are delayed and not comming out when previous thought they would come out... I guess those don't count on being correct either....

    Dang I can't wait for the TiVo Series 3 to come..... I really can't...
    More so to see the threads that follow it's release then for the product it self.

    when I saw Earl's response...I thought the same thing...unfortunately, Earl's response means that he didn't just take the bait, he was already a nice fillet on the clown's dish! ;)

    I get the impression that AbMagFab has never been in a position to have an inside source. I have them in a couple of areas both in business and my personal life. I can make statements on issues and things that will happen but NEVER divulge my source if something was told with any level of secrecy.

    Or AbMagFab just needs to grow up.

    It's not often that you find a lot of satisfied customers raising banners of praise about good service - it's only the dissatisfied ones that raise a stink. My 1st HDTiVo came from Robert without a hitch and is still running strong, and I saved $100 by buying through him. So, count me amongst the satisfied.

    I've had bad experiences with vendors and raised a stink so I don't begrudge anyone that right. But I reserve the right to counterpoint when I get good service from someone that's getting complained about.

    Um... Am I suddenly going to find myself being called a shill?

    [speculation on]
    hmmm.... yes, maybe it's not D* that's monkeying with the timing of fixing the 6.3 "bugs", but TIVO themselves?! Would they have reasons for delaying the 6.3 update until after Series3, or to coincide with it?
    [/conspiracy theory off]

    [reality on]
    like most companies, the left hands never know what the right hands are doing and the right hands are usually jerking off. None of this timing means anything.

    Still it will be very interesting to have the HR20, the 6.3 update for HR10, and the Series 3 all released [in the wild] at about the same time. Interesting times indeed for High Definition DVRs in the world ;)

    [/reality off?]

    I'm sure TiVO is currently busy with the finishing touches on the series 3.

    Pages ago Earl posted that they haven't been so quick to get Directv the latest and greatest beta version.

    It doesn't take much to figure where TiVo's priorities are....

    Shill
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A shill is an associate of a person selling goods or services who pretends no association to the seller and assumes the air of an enthusiastic customer. The intention of the shill is, using crowd psychology, to encourage other potential customers unaware of the set-up to purchase said goods or services. Shills are often employed by confidence artists.

    The word "shill" is probably related to "shillaber", a word of obscure early-20th century origin with the same meaning.

    Shills are illegal in many circumstances and in many jurisdictions because of the frequently fraudulent and damaging character of their actions. However, if a shill does not place uninformed parties at a risk of loss, but merely generates “buzz,” the shill's actions may be legal. For example, a person planted in an audience to laugh and applaud when appropriate, see "claque", or to participate in on-stage activities as a "random member of the audience", is a type of legal shill.

    I had to look it up too!

    Ahh... I guess that clears it up... I am NOT a shill after all..

    As I don't pretent to NOT have an association with DirecTV.
    I don't work for them, but do have an association/relationship with contacts at DirecTV.

    And if anything... I try to put as much of the facts out there so the people ARE informed, and allow them to make their OWN decisions on what to purchase or not.

    Thanks for the definition...

    Note: Is Monday over yet?

    Deja vu! We've already had that discussion, right in this very thread!

    I think it was around a decade ago, towards the middle of the thread. ;)

    No, it is not done by phone number. It is linked to your service ID number and your account. If your account is in the LA area then it will not matter where you call from.

    I've been in this thread since it first started. It was probably talked about around the point that I started zoning out because nothing was interesting.
