"Contains a design flaw."1.0 starson by mclark305
Pros: Nice picture quality. Provides great program information about a specific program including the number of seasons it aired and the episode lineup for each season, which allows viewers to watch episodes sequentially within a season.
Cons: This box has a basic design flaw that requires a video signal above 90 percent to operate. Don't buy it unless you know for a fact that the video signal will consistently remain above 90 percent.
Summary: We bought the box through TIVO during a promotional they offered in December 2009. We received the box at a greatly reduced price. Although we were promised it was new, I have my doubts. If the video signal does not remain above 90 percent, it won't record the program. We have to reset the box once a week. TIVO tells us it's a cable problem and will not return our money or exchange it for a different box. They will only replace it with the same box. We have done everything they suggested and it still won't work properly. We installed a cable card, a signal amplifier, and switched to digital cable. But the box continues to fail.
