Advertisements So far, here is what I have to say. ---Issues: Cablecard : Just a pain, still waiting on them and hoping the install goes right. On yeah, and I get charged 2 x $3 / month since they don't have multistream cards. No PPV : Not such a big deal and amazon unbox seems to be worth looking into anyway. Annoying issues that my old moto DVR did not have: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=350354&highlight=guide+recorded http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=398269 ---Good stuff: -Download music videos, unbox, etc was a pleasant surprise. -I like how Tivo thinks about what you might want to watch and automatically records it...neat feature. -Good interface for the most part, but still worse than my old DVR because of the issues noted above. -Maybe its just me, but the picture quality on analog (still waiting on cablecards) is significantly better. ---Initial conclusion: Dissapointed, but mainly because my expectations were probably too high. A few quarks in the interface are very dissapointing because I thought that was Tivo's big thing. The cost is relatively high at $13 (for now) +$6 = $19/month + box + usb wireless. The main reason I had to get away from the motorola DVR was constant delays and so far the Tivo has been flawless. I am concerned with others reports about freezing in HD, but I will have to see once I get the cablecards. So my final conclusion is that I am glad I went with the Tivo, but just barely. Knowing what I know now, I could probably live without the Tivo just as easily. But that may change once I become more familiar and find some good workarounds.
