"ARE THEY FREAKIN' CRAZY!"2.5 starson by larrymadill
Pros: TIVO's Great Software
Cons: Paying $800 for Something that is Free
Summary: I switched from a Series2 to a Motorola/Comcast/TimeWarner DVR because I got tired of only getting regular cable from a Plasma just to have TIVO. I was hoping to switch back when the Series3 came out but...
Yeah, Cable DVRs suck. The Software is slow and complicated, not enough space for heavy HD recording, and they seem hellbent on pushing OnDemand. But I only pay $12.95 a month for a Dual tuner DVR that records in HD, and that gets replaced if it burns out.
Why would I pay $800 for the same thing from TIVO? ARE THEY CRAZY!? I love Tivo software and their basic functionality. But nothing is worse that kind of price premium. Even TIVO offers free Tivos for a subscription.
