Advertisements This isnt really a Tivo rant. If anything its more of a picture of the dismal condition Tivo has been left in thanks to cable companys. Its no secret Im fed up with Tivo. Half baked solutions that sort of worked sometimes and the only updates being more revenue generating apps installed without fixing any of the others and lets not even start talking about the HDUI. But.. Ive dealt with it just because I loved my Tivo. Alas.. Ive had enough and its not entirely Tivos fault. I moved in with my now wife back in Feb. When I lived alone, my Tivo and Moxi were rock solid on TWC, even with the cable cards and tuning adapters. I had everything running on a small UPS and the setup just worked. Fast forward to Feb and its been nothing but a nightmare. Tuning adapter after tuning adapter being replaced, cable cards being replaced, tech call after tech call and finally after staring at "Just a few minutes more" for two hours the other night after trying to reboot the Tivo to fix a "You are not authorized for this channel" message, I decided that was it, TWC (And Tivo by association) is history. Got up with a friend from high school that now manages a large Dish reseller and got her to hook me up with Dish. I signed up with her at noon yesterday and at 4 oclock ON THE DOT (They were scheduled for 4), the installers showed up and went to work. Will I like it more than Tivo? Probably not. But like I told the guy from Time Warner yesterday when I was begging him to bring me out a whole house DVR and install it so I could at least have SOME TV until we could figure out why the Tivo stuff wouldn't work, "Whether or not there is going to be a picture on my TV when I turn it on should not be a stress issue for me. It should just work." Sadly, it rarely did. Ive rebooted that damn Tivo more times than I can count and the Moxi hasnt worked for months. Oh.. our digital phone has also been on the fritz for about 3 months as well. I can see why Tivo is suffering. If your stuff works, its easy to look at people having issues and go "Wow, I just dont see how these people cant get this stuff to work" but after what I went through, makes perfect sense now.
