      Comments about TiVo HD Digital Video Recorder (180 Hour):

      Really expands your tv entertainment choices and helps cut through all the stuff you don't want to see. The online, on demand content, is amazing. That said, slow internet connections can cause it a huge problem (like VOD doesn't work at all). Also the software can get 'stuck' when if it gets slowed down by the web. Also, Tivo never powers off, which leads me to wonder how much power it's draining all the time.

        Comments about TiVo HD Digital Video Recorder (180 Hour):

        I paid for ABT to install this TIVO, and they didn't because when they arrived with the TIVO they said I needed a special antenna, which they didn't tell me when I bought the unit. The "installer" then told me I also needed a special cable card, which I needed to get from my cable company, and that the cable company would hook up the tivo when they put in the cable card. The cable guy couldn't hook up the tivo because I still hadn't received the special antenna I needed from ABT. Needless to say, I had to hire someone else to come out and install the TIVO. Not a happy camper.

          Comments about TiVo HD Digital Video Recorder (180 Hour):

          This product can not be compared to any other DVR system out there... it just isn't fair to bring those other components to the level of this TIVO HD DVR. It is amazing... blows everyone out of the water. Been a TIVO customer and supporter since they rolled out their first box. Once I went HD with my cable provider, and was forced to use their HD box... I quickly learned that NOTHING compares, or should be compared to TIVO. I had Optimum's (Cablevision) DVR box and I've also had Verizon Fios DVR box... I could not wait to get my new TIVO box. The interface is simple and fast. The fact that I can download movies and TV shows for cheaper then my cable provider charges, is just amazing. Thank you to Amazon for that! The transferring to other TIVOs in the house, is just an amazing feature. Also, being able to setup TIVO to record a show over the internet is great. Using the cable cards directly inside TIVO is a plus. No more delays when changing the channels. I recommend this box to everyone interested in a perfect HD experience.

          Service and delivery comments:

          My TIVO was delivered on time. Simple and easy service! Thank you! I will shop with you again!

            Comments about TiVo HD Digital Video Recorder (180 Hour):

            I owned a TiVo series 1 as part of my Direct TV service. I moved two years ago and could not get Direct TV so I went with cable and one of their DVR boxes. Not a great product. I have missed TiVo since. Recently I discovered that I could get TiVo to work well with my digital cable via cable card. I tortured myself over the decision and ultimately decided to bite the bullet and get the TiVo HD. I have no regrets. It’s everything I remember from series 1 plus a whole new set of whistles and bells. You can't go wrong.

            One warning. The cable companies don’t seem to be up to speed on Cable Card so you may have some installation challenges depending on your situation. My installation took 18 man hours (3 TW Techs 6 hours each) but it works like a charm now!

              Comments about TiVo HD Digital Video Recorder (180 Hour):

              I have owned TiVo's for years. The advent of the HD TiVo was music to my ears! We received an HD TiVo last year for Christmas and have loved it on our 50" plasma. Bought another one in July for our vacation home. I wanted another TiVo for the master bedroom but didn't want to spend the money so when the smaller capacity model came out for half the cost, I was thrilled! If you network your TiVo's, you can record on any of them and then watch on another one so as long as you have large capacity on ONE TiVo, the other ones with smaller capacity works just fine memory wise.

              These units require two cable cards from your cable operator and need to be inserted and the guided setup for TiVo done before you call your cable operator to activate the cable cards. Once the cards have been activated, restart your TiVo box and then you should be good to go. Activation of the TiVo with TiVo is required as well but is super easy to do online - and it's instantanious. But don't buy this on a Friday night and expect to be able to watch programs right away as you'll have to call your cable operator to get their cable cards activated before you'll get a picture. A bit fiddly but WELL worth the effort! We went to our cable company and got the cards on Friday afternoon, set up the machine with the TV, activated our TiVo account, called the cable operator to activate the cards and were good to go within minutes!

              The typical DVR can't hold a candle to the TiVo for ease of use - recording, finding programs, networking for programming, online program scheduling capability, etc. TiVo RULES!!!

                  I have both TiVo HD DVR's. In this case, I didn't need the THX sound so I purchased the lower cost unit. I am not disappointed. I really like the way TiVo placed the CableCard slots up-front in this DVR versus the upper-end unit which has them in the back. I miss the face panel display identifying the shows being recorded but for over $300+ savings... I'll live. Responsive and quiet.
