    So now that this board has been taken over... where do we go now?

    I fear it's lost the "Community" part.

    (And let's see what happens to this thread/post as a real indication...)

    Why are you posting it here? There's already a thread for discussing this same topic.

    Most would suggest a search would be in order, or just merge this tread with those already in play

    That's obviously not particularly helpful. In the DirecTV HD forum (a place I periodically drop in to), the old owners said they were going to ban people who responded to threads just telling people to search.

    I commend the old owners for that. Wish they would have done it here, too. Too late, I suppose.

    Is this the thread?

    There's a little bit of difference between saying "Use the search" when the topic is something that's discussed in a sticky thread at the top of the same forum or gets discussed on a weekly basis and "use the search" when the search is for a one of thread that can be in any number of forums.

    The above linked thread didn't have much in the way of content in the first page, I didn't venture any further. It isn't in here (obviously) and it isn't in the Coffee House.

    Also, "If you would have used the search, you would have found this thread:" is infinitely more useful, especially to a new poster that may not be the most forum savvy.

    I wouldn't be concerned. What makes a board is the people, not the owners. As long as the people stay, you should too.

    Long...
    The Community part has been leaking for years. Nothing new here.

    :p

    So, Doug, you should start a new Tivo community so we have somewhere to go!

    I think your reaction is totally unwarranted. Is David Bott a community? No. We're all the community. I'm still here, you're still here... let's carry on as usual, and see what happens. Nothing's changed yet.

    If you didn't know there were new owners, you'd never have noticed anything.

    I haven't seen any changes due to the new ownership.
