    TIVO advice

    Any of you brothers have Tivo out there. I'm fed up with missing stuff and I'm thinking of investing. I have read that we can use it in Canuckistan now so hoping it all works out. Any of you have one and any advice ??

    I have something close to it, mine is actually a DVR which is basically the same thing. Would not know what to do without it. Especially with the shifts that I have been working. Ask Term I have been getting screwed over lately.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    I am switching shortly from cable to satellite. Charter Cable (my cable service) cable service claims to offer DVR/Tivo, but they don't. I am going crazy without. I am missing wrestling, The Shield, and other quality shows! That is unacceptable!!!

    I have a DVR that Dish Network included for "free"

    The thing has a few bugs in it (hangs up occasionally), but it's GREAT - I use it all the time, not only for time-shifting, but also to fast-forward thru commercials, even when I'm watching live TV!!! When it hangs up, I just have to reboot it (by pressing & holding down the OFF switch on the unit itself)

    All you have to do is build up a time buffer with live TV - start it recording a live show and while that's recording, watch a show you've already recorded for a while. Then you can go back and start playing the live show from the beginning - You don't even have to wait for it to finish recording. It continues to record the live part while you're watching the recorded part - and as long as you're watching the recorded part, you can FF thru the commercials!

    I also added a 2nd "free" receiver to to my living room setup, so I could watch one live show while recording another live show - Came in handy when Texas SWAT was on at the same time as Dallas SWAT

    You won't regret it.

    I know I'm late to this party, but I have Tivo and I don't even watch live TV any more. It's awesome. There's some deal where you can get the Tivo and a year of service for $200. Definitely a good deal.
