How does Tivo know what it's subscribers are doing or watching? This sounds a little too...

Tivo Dual Tuner by bilb2765
Is there a market for these anymore? My cable company now transmits all digital. And the dual tuner is only a single tuner. It is in good shape, and even have the original box. Just curious. I see them on eBay, but not sure if they move.

Tivo by QN[_3_]
I love my TIVO HD. I have wanted to buy some of their stock, but everything I read indicates they are terrible at making a profit. The stock is, therefore, only a bet on their lawsuits. It is just gambling. I'm no patent lawyer, but I have felt for years that the idea of patenting the TIVO...

Just got my TiVo, question about wireless adapter by Bob Fry
Setting up my new Series 2 TiVo for the first time, was a bit disappointed to discover it didn't like a Belkin wireless adapter I had.

no subscription = useless TiVo .. this is rediculous by Ken
*Rant on* Ok, well my credit card was over its limit, so I canceled it and let TiVo expire for a while. I understood that I would no longer get the channel guide, and season passes would cease to work. However, what happened is beyond unacceptable and as such I will never resubscribe to...
