In addition to what Mark said, the FP clock needs the "internals" correct before is shows anything. If you haven't done a reset the FP clock will mimic the internal time. Once you lose the FP clock,...

I'm not amazed, just happy. I have one unit that run and records 1 to 3 programs weekly. All the heavy lifting is done by a pair of TiVos.


Time & date were part of the Rovi data stream and were...

Still cooking. Tape used twice a year to set the time and date. Record once a week now, but that will jump to three times in a few weeks. Two TiVos do most of the work.

The storage required for 480i, 720p and 1080i will use a different amount of storage. If you watch mostly Fox or ABC you will get more stored. 1080i/5.1 is about 8GB per hour. 720p/5.1 is about 6GB...

That's not 100% accurate since DSD can be disabled for SACD. It's true that DSD needs HDMI, but you can still use SACD with the coax. I wouldn't, but it is possible.

I have not watched Extant yet. I'm recording the whole season first. But you may wish to see how the guide handles 8/20, since there will be two "new" episodes. I expect the TiVo guide to fail, but I...

It's hard to define update. If you mean last minute changes, they would be hard to detect. An example is the change of Extant from 9pm EDT to 10pm EDT. If you mean extending the last day it's easy to...

I never saw it on my S570, and I have Avatar. I would replace the cable first. The S6200 is very good, and you can keep the S570 remote.
