Advertisements My Toshiba RS-TX20 has been dying a slow death for a few months. It's been doing this thing where the video "pauses" for a second or two every once in awhile. Today it's been doing it fairly consistently...about every 2 or 3 minutes, sometimes more often. Little while ago, I noticed that sometimes when it pauses it makes a clicking sound. (bet that's the hard drive getting ready to commit suicide) So, I'm betting it's about to go soon. (please dont die little Tivo, dont go!) I'm going to miss the dvd burner...I just cant decide if I want to just get a cable box DVR (cox communications) or if I want to go with Tivo Premiere once my dvd burner Tivo kicks off. Is Tivo Premiere any better than the dvd burner Tivos?? I know I can transfer stuff to my computer (been doing that for awhile) but can I put tivo recordings onto an ipod? Does anyone know if I can put the shows onto a pin drive and play them on an iMac or on a computer that runs Linux? I had been recording shows for my sister onto dvd, if I can put them on a pin drive so she can play them on her computer, I might consider getting the Premiere. The Tivo has always been better than a cable box DVR.
