Got a Phillips PTV100 14 hour TiVo, still sealed. Mint condition. Cost a whole five dollars.
Doesn't look like there's any way to have it make a digital TV or converter box tune to ATSC sub channels so all it'd be able to do is the .1 ones, which is now the default mys gear automatically goes to when using a remote that doesn't have a . or - button.
DirecTV just gave me a free, no cost, no contract HD receiver upgrade, though I don't get their HD or local channel service. "Why should I get local channels through DirecTV when I get them free on my antenna?" Had to say that about 3 or 4 times to get the guy to give up.
Any chance this old TiVo's IR blaster will work with this new DirecTV box?
No need of me joining a TiVo forum if I'm not going to be using a TiVo.
