    Ya think. Moxi would never do such a heinous thing as plan ahead to get your money and then cancel the service. They have a much better business plan of keeping customers around.

    RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE!

    You and I have a different definition of 'short', apparently. You're story doesn't really track all that well. How long exactly was it between purchasing a lifetime subscription and cancelling it? You're saying that they cancelled your service and claimed to refund your money but never did, but neither your bank nor credit card company was able to take any recourse? And you have documentation? I suspect you're leaving some details out, here.

    I've had reason to call TiVo multiple times in the last 10 years...and I've never had a bad experience. Not with billing issues with credit cards, not with adjusting a billing mistake they made, not with adding new TiVos or even with initially setting my original Series 1. I don't doubt folks DO have problems with them...but my experience usually suggests that it is not the norm, by a long shot.

    these kinds of threads always rise from the grave right around any action on the TiVo DISH dispute. I am not sure if it is DISH fans or open source software folks or maybe a combo....

    I just cancelled my Tivo service after months of trying to get help with a Series 3 HD box that was still within warranty. The box kept freezing up on analog channels. I was told that this "gray screen" problem was a known problem with no fix available. How's that for great service (NOT.) I have 3 Tivo boxes and have subscribed to the service for over 5 years. I have been a great proponent of Tivo with all of my friends and relatives but no more! I just got back from Charter Cable with their DVR. This is a very sad day. Tivo is not what it used to be :-(

    I have had one Series 3 running for over three years without cable cards, just analog cable and never had the Gray Screen problem, or any re-boots, (except service updates) so i think the cable signal itself may play a part in this problem. (The onscreen clock (SPS9S) will not survive any re-boots, that why I can make that re-boot statement)
