Since Brad asked in his comment to this post, yes, it is true that the Mataconis family is now part of TiVo nation. We purchased our 2-tuner unit at the end of December and have been thoroughly enjoying it ever since. It truly does revolutionize the way you watch television.
The transition became complete last night when I was finally able to set up a wireless network in the house and hook the TiVo box into the network. In addition to allowing us to take advantage of a host of great features, this also means that we basically no longer have a reason to have a home telephone line.? I expect will be getting rid of that and going totally wireless soon.
