            Comments about TiVo Premiere Black Digital Video Recorder:

            I primarily bought this product to record digital over the air transmissions ( it even says it can on the box ) but what isn't readily known is that to finish the setup you need to be connected to the internet ( DSL recommended ) or via a standard phone line which requires an adapter ( not included with this version) and futhermore to even to be able to use this product requires a subcription ( even to record over the air stuff, i thought the subscription was for premium content only ). Unfortunetly i had to return the product, it didn't meet my needs..

            TiVo remote controls the TV too
            Needs to contact TiVo through the internet periodically or else a message to do this keeps appearing.

            Requires TiVo Service

            By Jim in Houston

            from Houston, TX

            Comments about TiVo Premiere Black Digital Video Recorder:

            Be aware that you must subscribe to TiVo service separate from your cable service for ~$15 per month. You will have to also buy a cable card from your cable service. And finally, unless you are a geek, you will have to get the cable service company out to exchange the cable box, install the card and hook up the TiVo box. All that costs money.
