Tivo knowing stuff type guys..
« on: July 30, 2008, 03:34:20 PM »

Tivo is being released here.

Just wondering those of you who have tivo or know someone who has it: is it any good?, what have been the main issues? is it worth getting one of these units instead of any other PVR type device.

Cheers

Maybe other than some HD implications, I can't see any reason to pay a monthly fee to do the same thing you can with a unit you can own.  Tivo had a good run, but My guess is the corner of the market they held hostage has been liberated.

I'm sure other more learned than I can break it down for you.


Since Tivo is on it's way to you guys, DVDs can't be far behind!  Wait 'til you see those sumbitches!

Cheers.

I have Tivo and I love it.  My shows get recorded even when the network moves them around.  I can schedule a recording from my work if need be.  If there is room on the drive, it records show it thinks I might like.  It has live365.com on it so I can listen to internet radio through my home entertainment system.  Be able to stop and back up a live show is great.  I find myself wanting to do that when I'm watching a TV that doesn't have Tivo.

When I got mine, they were offering a lifetime (of the recorder) subscription for $300.  I did that so I don't have to pay a monthly fee.
