The upgrade from the 2000 vintage Sony Tivo to the Tivo HD was like getting exposed to Tivo all over again. Back in 2000 I did not get or understand the Tivo revolution. Why would anyone spend $500 just to recoded a TV show. After all I have my trusty VCR. You do remember what a VCR is right? Will someone gave us a Sony Tivo for helping then set up a medical office. That Sony Tivo change the way I watched television for ever. Now I was watching what I wanted when I wanted. Plus if the phone rang I could pause live TV. All these were first at the time, back in 2000.
Well I have been very slow to upgrade to a newer Tivo. After all mine dose the job. It has the Tivo lifetime service. I have converted the phone only Sony Tivo to a ethernet connect unit with a giant hard drive. The Old Sony Tivo will store almost 200 hours of television. What else did I want.
let me tell you what I wanted…I wanted, to be able to recorder in HD, I wanted to be able to recored two shows at a time, I wanted Netflix streaming, I wanted YouTube, I wanted Yahoo weather, I wanted Pictures and video from my PC and Mac and the list goes on and on….
So I finally found a Tivo HD unit, with lifetime service, for under $500 and I jumped. And now I have all kinds of options all with a touch of a button from the Tivo remote. Like I said back in 2000 Tivo changes the way you watch television and now Tivo changes the way I use my television.
