"Good Product but Beware the Quirks"3.0 starson by mtulipan
Pros: HD, Good price, Snazzy design
Cons: Won't work with cable box
Summary: Make sure you call your company well in advance of getting this box. It's snazzy and cool but designed to work only with cablecards. So if your cable company is like mine and has a backlog in orders, you can expect weeks with no TIVO service at all. This should be clearly stated and is in my mind a mistake. There are no inputs other than cablecards and one for basic cable or antenna. Who uses those anymore? Digital cable boxes do not work with this TIVO. Beware!!!
The other thing that is annoying is the buttons on the remote have been slightly condensed. That means when you are using the channel down button you easily hit the "thumbs up" button, which is of no use to me personally.
I wish TIVO would get its act together on these boxes. The product is basically good but they drop the ball on some basic stuff.
