It would help if you would tell us your make and model number TiVo.
First six or so digits of your TSN is what we need.Big Devo said:From the System Information thingy: (I think these may be the important ones)
Brand: 100 (don't know what the heck that means)
IRD Model: R52180
DVR Service Level: P:- (don't know what that means either)
Don't blame Tivo. Blame DirectTv.Big Devo said:So does that mean I can't do all the cool stuff that the other tivos can do? I don't get it. Why does the stupid thing have USB 2.0 ports if they're not going to do anything?
The DirectTV Tivo won't have any of those cool features you're after, and from what I've read, they don't plan on adding any of them. They are only on the "stand alone" TIVO units, they work with cable and sattellite but don't have any directTV hardware in them (no directTV logo on the front).Big Devo said:It's metallic silver, does not have the "nightlight" front panel. It says DIRECTV DVR R10 on the front and it has an over-sized door for the card thingy.
TSN (starts with): 521-0001
Well, not exactly all yours can do. A stand-alone TiVo only has one tuner, so it can only record one show at a time. However, DirectTV determines exactly which of the TiVo features their units will support and so you will not be getting many of the new features in that unit.Big Devo said:so the Tivo-brand ones can do exactly what mine does, and more? Do I need anything extra to get them to do what my DirectTiVo box is doing now?
