    This poll pretty much sums it up in my opinion. You know what they say... A few bad apples spoils the bunch.

    Yes, you're a real sweetheart.:rolleyes::D

    I think the thread you're referring too was the one I stopped posting in because it got so nasty. In that thread I was confused as what they were talking about and then someone explained it to me.

    I thought the point of the forum was to help one another. Sorry I asked for help.

    But I still like the poll. And I thought GoHokies! started it but I see apparently PT30 did. However it's turned into a minefield.

    And as far as the spelling thing, I apologize for picking on you about that. It's just by that time I was so fired up I climbed on the attack bandwagon.

    I'll try to remain civil from this point on. You can do the same.

    Pretty significant amount of results. 251 responses and it has never gone below 91 percent happy.

    If a car manufacturer could attain those kinds of numbers there would be many manufacturers going out of business.

    Here is another guy who voted unhappy because where he is moving to uses SDV.

    Why don't people understand this is not a Tivo issue but a cable TV issue?

    I voted 'unhappy', and I am most probably a real person, with a real account.

    What are your reasons for being unhappy?

    This probably isn't the apropriate thread, and I have been through the issues many times on this forum before, but briefly:

    * horrible customer support
    * terrible software QA, leading to
    * interminable delay rolling out bugfixes
    * backpedaling on promised features (M card in S3), leading to
    * the 'tuning resolver' vaporware, and it probably never being available
    * stuffing advertising everywhere possible in a paid subscription service

    Please stop feeding the trolls.

    As if we need more proof that PT30 = Princeton Tech here's the text of a PM I received from Princeton Tech:
    If we ignore him, he'll go away.

    Well, all I can say is I bought my first Tivo 8.5 years ago. The two times I had to call customer support I found them to be very professional. They even called me back a few weeks later to see if the issue was resolved to my satisfaction. It was.

    Why have I not noticed ANY terrible software in 8.5 years? I do have one minor complaint. It is being reported by people who have recieved 9.3 that it fixes transfer problems when using Tivo Desktop for the PC. I have not got 9.3 yet, wish it would get here sooner, but I can be patient. Not a big deal.

    As stated above, very rare bugs so waits for bug fixes are not really a big issue.

    Isn't the M card hold up related to waiting for Cablelabs certification to resolve some issues?

    As far as the tuning resolver being vaporware, everything I have read says Q2 2008, which is April 1 to June 30. Seeing as how we are only 14 days into a 91 day quarter I think you need to be a little more patient

    Let me put it another way. Has it ever occurred to you that with 256 responses to the poll and only seven people objecting to the validity of the poll that PT30 has a higher approval rating than Tivo? With only 2.73 percent of the people objecting to the validity of this poll, I would say PT30 is not the problem here.

    Are all those 256 responses your aliases?

    Would you be generous enough to compare and contrast your view of the validity of the polling method to the view of PT30? I really want to get a better handle on the whole subject by analyzing the various views and trying to come to some reasonable conclusions for myself.

    Likely not, because part of the original premise (initials OP) was that there is a lot of negative posting, which this poll helps put the lie to. So it would have been self defeating... :eek:

    Here is another guy who voted unhappy. He has only three posts and his main complaint is that his cable company cannot do cable cards correctly. Again, that is not Tivo's fault, as cable cards are mandated by law and his problem is out of Tivo's hands.

    So why did he vote unhappy for Tivo when his problem is with his cable TV provider? It just baffles me.

    Personally, my sole reason for joining the Forum was to reduce its randomness; of course, being just a cog in the wheel, that has no bearing.

    :eek:
