    Count me in.

    Four Tivos in our household, 2 HD Tivos and 2 Series 2s. I autotransfer shows/series I want to watch but don't have time, or would like to watch in order to my computer with Tivo Desktop. I edit out commercials with VideoRedo, rename files in SxxExx order and save them to another computer with lots of storage running pyTivo. Every so often, I'll run MetaGenerator for the shows I've captured. On the pyTivo PC, I run another python program which captures motion detected video from an IP network camera so I can download and view those files on the Tivo too.

    I use mine mostly to time shift, but I do have some things saved. Those I mostly move off the Tivo to a hard drive. One other thing I really love is being able to see my photos on the tv. My monitor just isn't big enough. :)

    I keep trying to talk my friends into getting Tivos, but I haven't gotten anybody to bite yet. It would be easier if Dish and Directv would play nice since so many of them are on satellite. But I'm not giving up!

    Count me in!

    I have 2 S3s (1TB and 750GB) and 1 S2 (400MB). 1TB S3 has a lot of churn (HD sports programs take up space and quickly come and go); the 750GB has over 100 shows at all times.

    The S2 just hangs out, mostly recording the wife's soap. ;-)

    I keep full seasons of my favorite shows. I use TiVo Desktop to upload video files from my PC to TiVo. I like to view pictures from my PC on my TiVo as well.

    I use my TiVos to time shift regular programming, buffer Live TV (yes, I do that, mostly news), record programs if I have to go out, find programming I might like, and build up a library of movies (which I should watch some before the summer work rush).

    As for Tivo Desktop, I don't use that much, mostly to archive things I like to keep, put ont he iPod if I have to. I put everything on a big HDD, rarely on DVD.

    I use TiVo as my buffer so I can watch my shows after the kids are in bed and everything is cleaned up around the house.

    I use it to record a few regular shows and then lots of keywords to get random things that I enjoy: SCUBA, Paragliding, etc...
    I am never home during prime-time (out doing all those fun things) so it's nice to be able to have a variety of things to watch on my own schedule.

    Count me in! I use my tivo to catch all my family's favorite shows on our schedule. I use tivo2go to watch on my PC or laptop. I create DVDs of our favorite shows and movies to keep.

    We have two Tivos and one of them is constantly recording kid zone season passes for my 5 grandchildren. We time shift all shows now. We do MRV transfers alot and I use Tivo Desktop to archive stuff for the grandkids. And I use Tivo for viewing pictures. Also for my music collection, the TV is connected to my stereo and I nver use my CD player anymore.

    And I download DL.tV, Geekbrief TV, and Cranky Geeks.

    I dl lots of Music Choice videos too.
