TiVo is Love  
Much like Miranda, it's no secret that I have a relationship with my TiVo. But what's disturbing is that over the past couple of months, I started to wonder if there was something better. Then when I saw reposed's TiVo and that it had version 4.0 of the TiVo software, I got envious. I wanted one like Paul's.

I admit, I looked at the Series 2 TiVo when I was in the stores, painfully aware that my upgraded TiVo Series 1 was faithfully sitting, waiting for me at home. But the Series 2 are so sleek, so much slimmer. They have cute little LEDs in the front, more memory, a faster processor, and are easily networkable without hacking.

Then, TiVo dropped the price and reinstituted the rebate. There's just so much a person can take!

So this weekend, I broke down and brought a second TiVo into the house. My old TiVo still has lots of programming on it, so I find myself switching back and forth and even using both at the same time.

I'm having a threesome with my TiVos.

::sigh:: I can't even have a monogomous TiVolationship.


TiVo is love

Resistence is futile
TiVo is mother. TiVo is father.

Re: Resistence is futile
Tivo is... well TiVo!

It's a DVR that records your shows digitally in MPEG format on a hard drive and makes them accessible pretty much on demand. ReplayTV was, I believe the first. But TiVo was the first to successfully get brand recognition.

Viva la Tivolution!

This is great!! Could have been spoken by Miranda herself! :)

I'm a lover of both Sex and the City as well as My Precious..er...my TiVo.

Scott and I have long had a Tri-amorous relationship with TiVo for quite sometime (it really has progressed FAR beyond a mere threesome arrangement).

But then I went to my friends' Jake and Ed's new home last week. They just bought the newest TiVo. They moved their previous TiVo to the bedroom. They are linked. And apparently the new one will allow them to connect a re-writeable DVD device so as to put programs from TiVo onto DVD.

So, I come home and tell Scott that our friends are now in a very fulfilling four-way relationship that allows each to couple off in separate rooms. Whats more, they are bringing interesting new toys into their play time.

We are now shopping around for the perfect new TiVo to bring home. :)

I don't think Comcast here has on demand yet. But TiVo is on your terms! Plus you can keep stuff there forever.

Well, if you upgrade it. Which, of course, I have!
