    Anyone using Tivo with their FIOS?

    We record everything or we catch it later on netflix or something. Since you are TIVO smart I have to ask something. NCIS LA was on after the football game and it looks like it started recording when NCIS came on and recorded to the end. Is this typical for the TIVO? If it is ... that is...

    Anyone using Tivo with their FIOS?

    Actually both. After one of their updates we starting having problems with the new boxes. The sound kept cutting in and out and sometimes the sound and picture. Most of the time only for a second but it would do it repeatedly sometimes and it was pretty annoying. It's a problem a lot of...

    Anyone using Tivo with their FIOS?

    Well, as an update I did go for the TIVOs. Two Bolts and a mini so far. They have replaced my FIOS system and I am saving $70 per month. We really like the TIVO boxes a lot. The skip feature is great and so far has been on a lot of the new fall shows we have recorded. Even with the "all in"...

    What does 'lifetime' really mean? (TIVO dropping series 1 support)

    17 years is longer than most of us keep these things. How much did lifetime cost back then?

    TiVo Bolt: Speed, More Speed, and Instant Ad Skipping

    Well, hubby traded his Hilton Honors points for BB gift cards so the boxes didn't cost us anything. I bought two 1TB Bolts and one mini. I'll buy another mini when the room is done and it will replace my FIOS system. I bought the "all in" on both Bolts. We will save $70 per month on our FIOS...

    TiVo Bolt: Speed, More Speed, and Instant Ad Skipping

    Thanks I'm really considering a Bolt. So, if I can build a desktop I can replace the drive in a TIVO? I "assume" there are special drives you would need to buy and there are size limits? My rental costs on equipment are really high. I feel it would pay for itself soon enough.

    TiVo Bolt: Speed, More Speed, and Instant Ad Skipping

    I have no real TIVO experience. What is the advantage to buying the larger drive on the TIVO since you can add an external hard drive?

    Important Service Information about your Fios Account

    Correct. The picture he posted was the original router, then the advanced routher looked just like it except it was orange and the Quantum rounter is the sleeker black one with only the two lights on the front.

    Important Service Information about your Fios Account

    That's a pretty good deal. The original router they offered you wasn't the Quantum I don't think. It is an updated version of the one you had. It is orange in color. I have one of those in my basement because I owned it and bought the Quantum router.

    Anyone using Tivo with their FIOS?

    I did until one of the updates made mine start glitching. The sound cuts in and out and has been driving me crazier than I already am. On one of the other units the picture cuts out sometimes too. It seems to be a problem that a lot of people have. I have tried all of the little tricks listed...

    Anyone using Tivo with their FIOS?

    I have been considering TIVOs to replace my FIOS boxes. Does anyone else use them and do you find any problems with using them.

    Stargate SG-1 Discussion

    So did you salvage any of your Stargates? I may have some duplicates of some of them if you would like them. Definitely have duplicate of the original movie.

    Windows 10 installed

    I did it early Wed am on my xps laptop from 8.1 and my son did it on his alienware from 7. The first thing that happened on the update app was it checked our computers for compatability. It gave us a list of everything it checked. In my case everything was ok and all of my programs work fine...

    6/28/15 guide update

    I know we got a new guide.... I will have to check some of it out when we are done streaming. The thing I noticed was that when you highlight a channel it shows a picture of what is on.... like a cover for the movie or show. To be honest I see no real benefit in that for me. I did go into the...
