The sub is tied to the TSN (motherboard), so once you connect to Tivo's servers it will run out again. Swap the PS to the dead Tivo and see if you can get it working since it has lifetime.

Really stupid decision to bill this as some special 4-night event, then leave it hanging at the end. ABC screwed the pooch with this show.

It was mildly entertaining at best but we mostly enjoyed...

The intro was definitely the best part of the show.

Another underwhelming season that was all over the map, and a sad and stupid ending which at least gave Jessica top billing on her way out the...

Yep, sometimes SPs do go bad for whatever reason but as aaron said this is a rare event. An alternative is to create an auto-recording Wishlist (ARWL) using title or description keywords. I have an...

The Roamio Basic with the promo code and lifetime is around $500. If you want to stream, get a used Tivo Stream off of fleabay (folks upgrade to Roamio Plus/Pro then dump their Stream). Tivo app is...

You just listed all the big stuff, the 'and more' is miscellaneous junk that few care about (MLB TV, Huffington Post, AOL TV etc.). Amazon includes the free Prime Instant Videos btw.

You don't have to pay a monthly fee for Tivo, lifetime is a much better option and pays for itself. Very easy to get a used Premiere 2-tuner w/lifetime for less than $300, and some can be had...

Give LinHES (http://linhes.org/) a try for Myth, I used the predecessor (KnoppMyth) for clear QAM long ago. Good turnkey package that is easy to try out.

Agreed 100%. Had lots of issues on my old 100mb network, upgrading to GigE took care of everything on my Xboxes.

Don't even bother with wireless or powerline, if you can't run cat6 to a room...

Compared to a whole-house Tivo Roamio setup that pays for itself vs. renting that X1 within 3 years? Um, no. And you can integrate Plex with the Tivo, it has iOS and Android apps for remote...

While I haven't had any network issues with WMC and Xboxes as extenders, I know that they do exist for some. If you're willing to mess with Linux it's hard to beat Mythbuntu or any number of other...

Yes, I think they are making a concerted effort to move the show back to its roots and it's been much better so far.

Except for that small detail that the Pats killed the Colts in the second half with correctly inflated balls.

I agree that the NFL should come down hard on them, but not to the point of a DQ - the...

Except that it breaks compat with his Ceton extenders, so there's no reason to upgrade WMC if you're using them.

You don't need Windows 8, and modern low-power PCs draw the same or less than a Tivo especially with sleep factored in. If you're happy with WMC and Ceton there's no reason to switch to Tivo, just...

It boggles the mind as to why someone would want to buy these crap DVRs when a used lifetime Tivo Premiere is no more than $300.
