"What is wrong with this thing?"2.5 starson by olozbal
Pros: It's a Tivo which makes it great
Cons: Slow as dirt, so slow I can't use it.
Summary: For starters, I love Tivo. I have three of them now, generation one, two, and now the HD Tivo. So you've got someone who loves them, Tivo is basically the Macintosh of TV to the cable company's PC.
My Tivo is slow as dirt. So unbelievably slow that I keep calling customer service because I can't see what's wrong with it. It often does not respond to remote commands until you press it for the thousanth time. I rebooted, I change remotes, I got the latest software, and the thing is still slow. It seems like trying to run a modern game program on a 286 PC.
I just have no idea what is wrong with this thing. I am going to give Tivo one more shot then I'm done with it. Seems I'm a minority here but I had to say something.
