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...

Yeah, it does, but it's so hard to figure out how much energy without a lot of effort. Here in Phoenix, minimal would probably apply to everything given how much the AC chews up much of the year. :)...

I agree with you, but I wasn't agreeing with turning it off in the first place. I was just agreeing that it doesn't seem so hard to add the option for anyone who is concerned about Big Brother or...

I tend to agree, but most(?) of what's left on has to do with being able to 'see' the remote signal. However, today's smart sets obviously leave much more on for the internet, auto updates, etc. That...

You're very welcome Keenan, always a pleasure to chat with you. I knew about removing the shield, but I liked the look of the Hitachi better at the time and the price was a little less because there...

To be quite frank, my biggest concern is screen glare. The reason I chose this Hitachi over the Mits at the time was its anti-glare screen. My daughter had a Mits in a similarly lit home and it was...

Same boat here, even a Hitachi 65" RPTV 10+ years old, but I've yet to upgrade. I'm still waiting to see the 70" at Costco and even then I'm not sure I'm going to jump in right away. I want the 70"...

Cox stopped including basic TV service with internet a long time ago. As Bryan said, they do put filters on, but if you just cut the cord, that's possible, though unlikely. They usually only put the...

That's cool, but I would have thought you could just plug in a USB with photos and that's all it would take. I guess not?

Thanks for the heads-up. I see TiVo automatically adds new channels to the channel list and let's me delete them if I don't want to see them in the guide.

Best way to do that is to leave it on and turn it into a living photo album showing a slideshow of random family photos. Is there an app for that. :)

Let me hear you say that when you travel across the country and don't have cell service, like many parts of Texas, PCH 1 along the California coast south of Monterey, etc. I use Google Maps...

Both really good points and that's why I keep reading, hoping that a consensus will build before I make a purchase. In hindsight, I didn't start researching back then until the models had been out...

To be honest, I was joking, at least about the reconsidering. :) But now that you mention it, I assume the experience would be pretty similar and still leave me wanting. So far, I don't think...

Hi King,


The Pro froze once, I think, but I was hitting keys like mad at the time, so it might have just been way behind. I've learned that a few things take some time, particularly sequencing...
