if only i had tivo. i'll be using a vcr.

i have no phone line, which is a requirement of tivo.

Only to set it up at first.
You can use someone else's phone line to do that.

After that, you can wire it into your network, and it can get it's data from there.

I've got both of mine wired into my network, and they can swap shows between them. :cool:

Yep.

Go get a big hard drive while you're at it.
I upgraded both of mine with 120 gb drives...

Between those two and the HD recorder, I think I've got somewhere around 400 hours of recording capibility on 4 separate tuners.

I have achieved TV nirvana.

Yup. Regular IDE drive. Up to 120 GB on the older ones, and up to 300 on the newer ones.

It runs 12.95 a month, and 6.95 for each additional unit.

Well worth every penny.


If you're interested in doing the upgrade, I have a link to instructions and places you can get some mounting brackets designed especially for it.
