Did anyone notice that the Tivo guy now SPEAKS on the Tivo homepage?
I'm not sure I like it.......
Hey, be glad SOMEBODY at TiVo is talking.
I never go to the main page. I always jump straight to SPM or http://www3.tivo.com/tivo-tco/index.do
That's messed up. Always thought he'd have a Mexican accent for some reason.
Wish they had spent that money on adding the iPad interface to Series 2 & 3 boxes.....
I will have to go over and listen. I am just crazy about the Tivo guy, I think I must have lost my mind.
I found my mind....that doesn't sound like what I thought such a fun loving guy should sound like. It sounds like a character from Sesame street.
Looks like he's shed a few pounds ... a lot thinner. Has to compete with all the flat screen TVs nowadays. No more looking like a tube!
Should spent the money on the HDUI to make it faster and work as advertised.
Woa, that's creepy.
New youtube video posted as well...
THIS is Shanan's replacement?
Wow, there's nothing more annoying than a website that plays sound when you visit it.
Get over it...
I have lost all RESPECT and admiration for our little TiVo creature with that AWFUL, nerdy, loser sounding teen-age man-boy voice. By keeping him mute, it was like Teller of Penn & Teller who never speaks, so we are free to imagine what we will, and one who is silent seems more interesting, powerful and even sexy?
Now, as it was pointed out, this icky talking logo does seem a bit different in appearance (a bit more rounded and somewhat smaller) from the original TiVo mascot. So, we can hope the creepy child voiced TiVo creature is the original's brother or, perhaps more appropriately, his son, out of wedlock?
Either way, the voice is shrill. If they are going to give our little TiVo a voice, it should have been a "cool" one, not the loser-ville voice he has now. Something more boomy and omnipotent sounding with shades of Lou Rawls would have been spot on.
I've been saying that. TiVo guy has needed to widen out to 16x9.
He sounds a lot like Billy West doing Fry.
They should have spent that money on my pony.
I was thinking that they should have used James Earl Jones for the voice.
Or Isaac Hayes?
wow, even complaint threads have sunk to a new low. I feel better each day about my decision to go lurker
