The beta on the toy I was testing is over and I have to send it back, so I needed a new toy to play with. ;-)

Only $684 from the place I got it - not bad considering the $1200 MSRP. Best price that I could find.

Nice. I've been looking at those but can't justify the expense. My existing 20-hour TiVo is not gonna last forever. Btw, does it require a phone line, or can it hook to your network to download guide info?

Officially you need a phone line for the initial setup, then you can use a USB network adapter.

Though there are a handful of adapters that work with the ,#401 backdoor even for setup.

is that a good show? arrested development?

It has its moments, it is kind of quirky. Better than most sitcoms I've seen in recent years. It isn't something I'd make an effort to see if I didn't have TiVo to grab it for me, but since I do I can watch it when I want.

Jealous

I'd love to have one of those, but I don't save enough stuff to make it worth the money to replace my existing Tivo. I should probably invest in a drive upgrade for my existing one though.

drooooool......

Mmmm... me want....

Haven't been able to justify the expense to myself. I don't watch much TV anymore. Almost got one to make sure I got all the Battlestar Galactica stuff and could make a DVD out of it.

Then again, I suppose I could build a linux box with a capture card to do all this for me.

*sigh*

I'm indecisive. That seems to keep my from spending money.
