You will love Tivo and HATE your Cable Company
I've owned standard definition Replay, leased from Comcast a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HD HD DVRs and I’m here to tell you TiVo is by far the best. The software and interface has been thoughtfully created for both novice and technology savvy users. The guide is laid out in a logical fashion. This is the good. Now for the bad. Unfortunately, the cable providers are loath to support the special cards that allow you to use this fantastic device with the your cable channels. Configuring the two cable cards on Comcast's of Alexandria network was a fiasco of colossal proportions. After being stood-up by the cable technicians twice, I found myself contemplating switching services to a satellite provider. The technician successfully configured one of the two cable cards during the first service call. After 10 phone calls and two appointments where I was stood-up I still am no closer to having the device fully operational. You will LOVE TiVo and HATE your cable company.
