I currently have a Dishnetwork PVR receiver but am interested in the TIVO for the Season Pass feature. Where can I get the best deal and is this a wise decision?

Yes. Get a TiVo. You'll love it. Best Buy usually has really good prices, but they'll also match anyones lower price. Get the TiVo with the DVD burner. I just bought one. You'll love it.

I JUST got off the phone with diect TV and have one being installed the 21st. Should be a real thrill spliting two receivers. I have my HD Hughes receiver and high def dish, so now I will have a bunch of other crap around here. It will make the VCR go away though. I got this thing for $49.00 with a free install.

What did it cost you? I looked at a DirectTV Tivo unit a couple years ago but didn't get it due to them requiring a phone line to be hooked up. I don't have a home phone, only cell. Does Tivo require a land line?

You can get a 70hr tivo at Circuit city for $99. I got one. These are one of the few things I would get the service plan for though, as I am currently on my 3rd tivo in just a little over one year.

I was going to get on too until I found out you have to have a phone line. From what I understand you just need it for the setup part and then TIVO updates from the satellite after that.

Here is great site for all things TIVO.

No that the seasons basically over I can watch the Chiefs game in one hour with TIVO!

I don't waste a lot of time on the defense.....Then again neither do the Chiefs!
