Advertisements Hi, I've only had tivo for a few months, but I just got a new Dell computer with a tv tuner and windows xp media center edition. The computer looks up my guide information. It allows me to search for programs. It also allows me to schedule "record all" with the options of repeats or not. It allows me to pause live tv, record etc. It really does every thing that tivo does except record things that it "thinks" I might like. Is that feature really worth 12.95/month? I can also connect the computer to my tv and for another 100 bucks or so I could have dual tv tuners and record one channel while watching another. So what am I really getting out of tivo? I won't get rid of it now, since I am using the computer in the office and not in the main living area. But if I had easy access I could connect to the tv and get almost all the benefits of tivo.
