Hi everyone,

I am brand new here and feel silly for not thinking of looking up a TiVo Community before now.

Well I have had my TiVo Samsung Sir-S4040R Dtv box for over four years now, and I love it.

>> I am not so happy with Direct TV however. Is this a place I can nicely voice my complaint about Dtv and see what others may have done about it? And, can I ask about keeping my paid for box when Dtv keeps saying I need to upgrade? I tried this at the Dtv site and they seem to want to hide these types of things. If not I won't press the issue. Just you have so much to look at and I get lost easy. :confused:

Welcome to the TiVo Community!

If you have Direct TV questions and/or comments, check out the DirectTV forums on this site. There are a bunch of people that feel the same way about their DirecTiVos and the new Direct TV DVRs. Spend some time reading the old posts and enjoy!

Wow, now this is an active place. :)

OK, why do they frown on animated avatars when the foums have that cute little animated TiVo dude? :p

I will replace my avatar asap... I just need to make a non-animated one. Thanks for the heads up. :)

I don't make the rules or enforce them... Just trying to give you a heads up on what happend to me when I signed up.

Go to this page to edit your avatar - you'll also find the following quote.
-Custom Avatar-

Avatars are small graphics that are displayed under your username whenever you post. While not required, we do encourage the use of an photo of yourself to give more of a community feel. NOTICE: YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE POLITICAL IMAGES, IMAGES IN A SEXUAL OR RUDE NATURE, ANOTHER MEMBERS PERSONAL ACTUAL PHOTO, A LIKENESS OF THE SITE STAFF LOGO, OR ANIMATED GIFS. YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE SUSPENDED IF SUCH IMAGES ARE USED.
They gave me a friendly reminder and did not suspend me.

Hey welcome to the forum. Excellent first post :up: you have obviously used forums before. Sorry about your animated avatar but I for one like not having a bunch of moving activity on the left side :) The TiVo guy animation actually tells you things about unread posts or kogged on members etc.. so they offiically have a purpose I guess

LOL, I like that little TiVo guy. :)

Zeo, no problems at all. Due to my brain being designed with the ADHD chip series 7005 I tend to skip over any all cap words as if nothing was typed. And, I only see the size of the image, and how many kb's I can use. You do not want to know how I drive...

My programers are hard at work trying to correct this bug (doctors with meds) and I am running live tests on the beta software.

Bill, you da man. Thanks for that heads up, sadly I really miised the rules of posting an avatar... I don't have political ties (just solid ones and patterned color ones to go with my shirts). And, saw no need for the prawn avatar I had... Red Lobster might get upset if I take its seafood.

Kite,

DOH >,< I just realized prawn seafood avatars are ok... It was pron non-seafood avatars that I can't use.

Welcome to the Tivo Community Forums :D

I for one like animated avatars, but the rules are the rules.....

If you wish to voice your concerns over Directv etc, you can do so in the Directv Receiver with Tivo or the HDTV Tivo powered PVR Forums on this site.

By the look of your First post, you have an Owned unit and Directv are trying to upgrade you to their leased unit... happens all the time. In fact we recently have had some discussions about this very topic.

Enjoy your time here.

No, it's the Porn Avatars that you can't use. :p

A great sense of humor, you will go far here. :up:

Now if only we could figure out what exactly would be a Porn Avatar as opposed to a Non Porn one :D

I can't tell you what it is, but I'll know it when I see it.

Welcome to the Forum!

One thing I have learned is to try and utilize the search function before posting a question or thread about something. That way, you limit the number of posts that say things like "already posted HERE".......At least if you search, you can say "I searched but did not find anything about this....."

As your first test as a member of this forum, see if you can find a definition for the word smeek.....
