It only took three Cable Cards and an hour of the repairman’s time, but my TiVo is now up and running. I am still debating whether to spend the 70 dollars to put a new power supply in the old TiVo to get the data off of it. Maybe one day!
I recorded Saturday Night Live in HD to test it out and it actually looks great. I haven’t checked the size requirements to see how much room it takes up, but since I will be TiVo’ing less shows now, hopefully it will not run out of room.
Still not happy with the guide interface (I never was before with TiVo – preferring to use the cable company’s guide and information), but I am sure with time I will get used to it.
