  • Tivo Issue

    Well apparently my tivo hard drive has been fried, and its happened to a lot of people ever since the "download" at 230am last night. The newest software caused a few machines to lock up and thus fried the drive.

    I reset it 10 times and each time it says its powering up and then goes to a grey screen and stays there forever.

    This was the R10 model. I guess DT will be sending me out a new dvr and they claim its a tivo but I know better. They phased them out and will be sending me a lame knock off DT DVR.

    Directv is going down hill so fast.

    Anyone else have issues with a tivo today?

        Tell it that you know Kat McPhee - it will open its USB port to you.

          I am on my third hard drive since 2001---the original was 200, the two replacements have been 160 gig. Approaching 5000 hours---never subscribed, I just use a piece of crap 1991 vcr to tell it what to record. Perfect.

              I'd be interested in the response here. Have been a customer for 8 years or so...Nothing but good to me.

                  "downhill" might be a bit harsh, but if we're pointing things out, switching from Tivo technology to their proprietary technology wasn't exactly customer friendly.
                  Of course you do.

                      It took me a while to get used to the DirecTV DVR, but it is much faster than a TiVo....at least the TiVo I had...which was the original.

                      Other than that, no problems.

                        I never owned a Tivo, what is the difference?

                          In addition, it would be nice if they taught their reps what constitutes a "black-out."

                          Twice now I've called about issues where I was trying to watch the Cardinals vs. (any team but Chicago) on Extra Innings and I've had to teach them that "No. It's not because the game is blacked out. Blackouts take place in the cities where the teams being blacked out are from. I am in Chicago. These teams are from St. Louis and San Francisco. It's not a blackout"... then have to re-explain 3 more times befor they finally escalate it.

                          "Must be blacked-out" seems to be the only answer that they know to give sometimes.
                          Of course you do.

                            Changing their encoding format was the reason I got rid of DirecTV. Means it's not even possible to set up multi-room viewing, like any normal (i.e. cable-attached) Tivo can manage.

                              Biggest one is multi-room viewing, i.e. "Tivo-to-go". If you have more than one Tivo, you know how awesome this is. Further, you can put your Tivos on your home network, and even include your PC, allowing you to transfer shows to/from your PC, iPod, etc.
