I normally don't read any reviews here, but anything "Suits" related catches my eye. Another review by a so-called reporter who obviously doesn't watch the show. Either that or she just doesn't know...

Doesn't a lot revolve around getting enough episodes for syndication to fill up cable channels and fill even more air time with ads? I have to admit I yearn for more episodes of Suits, but I'm quite...

I think his auto-correct got the best of him. I think he meant "definitely". :)

I get it dad, but still not enough of us willing to do it. And if you go back to satellite, you're still part of the problem. :) Just by buying DVDs, etc., makes you still part of the system. And,...

And they won't try it because they don't have to, just like ala carte. If DirecTV added the channel and raised the rates, subscribers would grumble and end up paying the new rate, like we all do now....

Very true. I often ask my wife, "Prius or Dakota?", but just as often ask "car or truck?".

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

Surprisingly, I do too, Aaron. Based on comments here, I was all set to turn it off after a few minutes, but I don't see any reason for the disdain shown here. True, it's not close to reality, but I...

A 4-yr warranty is really only a 3-year warranty, maybe with a few extras on the original 1-yr, like labor after 90 days or something. That works out about $30/yr for some peace of mind. If you never...

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 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...

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. :)

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...
