"Changes the way you watch TV..."5.0 starson
Summary: This is a wonderful device, that when used will completely change the way you watch your TV and possibly even WHAT you watch! I initially looked at Replay TV and TiVo, and ended up going with the TiVo which is fortunate considering what happened to Replay TV. I wanted a DVR because I travel a lot and my family could never remember to record shows and/or swap VCR tapes. Now, when I return from 2 - 3 weeks of travel, all of my favorite shows are waiting as well as things that TiVo thinks I might like (it's about 50/50 so far). Although there is a steep investment initially (DVR + subscription), I feel it's worth it and the ability to pause live TV almost pays for it alone. The only complaint I had was the requirement to run a phone cord across my living room, but the recent free OS upgrade allowed me to hook it into my wireless home network!
