    I'm a new customer and would like to have the Tivo software, but it wasn't mentioned when I signed up.

    What is your geographic location, and are you talking about software on the Tivo itself, or software that lets your comupter copy shows off of your Tivo?

    I'm in boston. Most of the metro area can get Comcast w/ Tivo. You just have to call and ask for it. Their website for some reason differs when you order (I always call..). And call the number on the bill (not 800-COMCAST), since that'll route you to the one of the local call centers.

    I'll be honest.. I *had* a Comcast Tivo (roommates request). It was OK. But I've converted them now to Tivo by putting a Premiere in its place. I have another post on my review of Comcast's Tivo somewhere (its old!).

    What I alweays found funny is the menus on the non-Tivo DVR are exactly like Comcast Tivo, except its not the same interface. (You'll see what i mean if your box is "upgraded"..)

    No. To put things in perspective, the Comcast TiVo (the one that is now dead) was announced in 2005 and released in 2008 in the Boston Market only.

    My mom has one since it's release and it's actually not bad product.
