Ric, Tivo is the best. We've had it for a little over a year. I only watch live TV for Sox/Pats. I even Tivo the nightly news. Get it, you won;t regret it!

I just sold my Tivo stock this morning for a bit of a loss. Until they lose the subscription fees, I can't see how much advantage they have over the plain old dvrs. I kept hearing promises of movies on demand (and maybe that's still in the works), but I could've probably done better at the track than that stock has done me.

I've had DVR for the past year and we absolutely love it. I don't get charged the $3.00 fee or whatever from Dish Network because I'm a channel junkie and have the "everything" package.

I must say, before I had Tivo, i didn't really understand how great it was. Now, I Tivo everything except sports. I can not imagine not being able to fast forward through the commercials. As far as Tivo vs. DVR... who knows. I only have experience with Tivo and I LOVE it!

We have the 120G Tivo with Directv. Love it and use it all the time.

On a similar note, anybody tried Netflix? Since I signed up a few months ago, I rarely watch TV -- only to catch the news in the morning during breakfast or to watch live sporting events or Sportscenter. We pretty much watch a different movie every night or we can watch a whole season of a TV show (e.g., Alias) at our own pace and our own schedule, without commercials or annoying "stay tuned for next week" teasers...

I replaced the lame HBO/Cinemax offerings for this.

I did the blockbuster online free trial (same as netflix). I think TIVO was working on some sort of on demand service with netflix, i.e., want to watch a movie, click, done, huge library, etc. As for the difference, I think TIVO has a more extensive (into the future) program guide. My DVR gives you 9 days.

I can't agree with dumping HBO though. They've got some of the best shows on TV. Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage, Cat House ;).

Netflix is excellent. We've had it for over a year and it's great.
Tivo is $4.95/mo thru DirectTV. I believe they now offer a DVR solution, either way it's a great service

We have had Netflix for the last 4 years. It is great!! Just pick what you want online and no more going the video store. :)

Entourage is awesome! Jeremy Piven is the man! The whole scenario where he got ratted out and was barking at Lloyd over the phone was classic. I'm sad to have to wait a while for the next season. Fortunately, Curb Your Enthusiasm starts in a week or so.

Titsiefly!

"I don't care if you find a __ and an executioner's mask! Don't think, just pack that biatch! Chop Suey!"

Later he told him to get over there and ended the conversation with "Pronto Tonto!" Love it!

Anything scored with "Monkey Man" is gold!
