You can buy a DSL modem for under $30 on Amazon. Do remember the speeds you get from DSL are dependant on how far you are from a CO. While they like to advertise up to 40Mbps, I can only get 7Mbps where I live in Mesa. Since I can only get 7Mbps, I am not eligible for their TV service if I wanted.

Must be my year for making decisions. After deciding on the Tivo, I've bought a 2014 Prius 4 that will be delivered later this week, if it stays on schedule. Still waiting on the 70" M-series Vizio before I make a decision on a new TV though.

Cheers, Dave

Not if it is in a "Pak" like Sports Pak 1 or Sports Pak 2. Just don't subscribe to the "Pak."

If it does go into the S&I Pak, Cox will be doing something right for a change.


BTW, king, do you watch any sports at all? I only watch NHRA on ESPN2, I've even given up on NASCAR, especially the restrictor races.

Cheers, Dave

I get it now. Looks like you'll be paying for it then.

Looks like Tivo finally woke up and decided to sell their hardware including lifetime service for a reasonably discounted price.

http://dealnews.com/Ti-Vo-Roamio-Plu...0/1107769.html

I'm not sure but the ebay deals posted by Bryan a while back (if they're still around) might still be a better deal......

This Deal is temporary and will most likely end 07/31, also the Base Roamio and Minis are not included.

The following site is the guy on ebay and Promo Code COMMUNITY will get you an additional $10 off the $49 price paid for the code.

For the OTA crowd there are 2 new sub-channels, Escape on KFPH on 35.4 and Grit on KTVW on 33.3.
Escape features movies with women in danger and Grit features movies with tough guys. Both channels seem to be native 16:9 but are being sent out letterboxed. They seem to be run by the same people running Bounce, so that may mean it will not be added to Cox...it also seems that Bounce is moving off My45 to KTVW at some point in the future.
