I have had a Tivo since the first of the year. I am in the process of having my unit replaced for the second time. Ordinarily, I would be upset, except for the fact that they are so good about standing behind their product. Telephone assistance is generally helpful. Once you get used to it, operation couldn't be simpler. In fact, I think it is easier to use than straight satelite. It combines cable and satelite or antenna and satelite into one continuous series of channels. No more flipping back and forth. Once you get one, you'll never watch tv the same way again. No more channel surfing because nothing's on. Zap right through those commercials. You just periodically go through and select which shows you want to watch for the week. The coolest feature by far is the "Season Pass". It lets you select a program just once and it will keep on recording that program from now until the cows come home, or until you tell it not to. You don't even have to know which channel or what time a show is on, Tivo finds it like a faithful bloodhound and automatically records it for you. Even if the show goes on hiatus for a couple of weeks or months, Tivo remembers and records it for you. Word of advice, get the one with the bigger memory. Otherwise, you'll constantly have it full.
