Those actions were not taken to prevent similar events. The actions were taken to prevent blowback from a lot of people demanding the flag be banished. Political correctness. I agree with getting...

I really don't mind the mergers where there is no overlapping service area. However, in this case obviously the two companies serve the same footprint and will reduce competition. In any event, it...

My math might be wrong, but I think a hard drive is a bit cheaper per gig than a disc. Assuming $115 for a 3tb HDD and 30 cents for a 5 gig disc.

Personally, I absolutely hated this show. Every week the red-faced angry protagonist accusing another person of the crime only to be proven wrong. Then SPOILER ALERT out of absolutely nowhere.......

Maybe many years ago TiVos got input from a cable box. TiVo now IS the cable box. Coax goes into the TiVo and the outputs, composite, component, HDMI are all 16-9 for content in 16-9. As someone...

I record 16-9 on mine without having to use a converter. Maybe it depends on the cable box. The Scientific Atlanta box I had worked this way and now my TiVos work this way.

Yes, I could spend 15 minutes before finally getting the code to take. However, I got a tip on the TiVo Community forum to use the KMTTG app. It has a function to send the code to the mini (or any...

Yeah, copy protected, can't move via KMTTG or TiVo Desktop. We've discussed this before. It was you, IIRC, that turned me on to using HDDs and WDLive for archiving and playback rather than DVDs.

Is there anything like the iView or Homeworx that accepts HDMI or component input from a TiVo? I like the simplicity of these boxes. I am using my 515 simply to transport content from my TiVo to my...

I saw this coming a couple of years ago. I had a couple of 515s, one of which I have subsequently sold, and one cable co. DVR. I moved to TiVos. They are expensive upfront, but save in the long...

I can write a novel while watching a baseball game. Plenty of time between plays as well as timeouts in football to tweet/post.
