When is a Tivo not a Tivo July 13, 2006

TI –

From our phone conversation last night, you know that I hate my new DirecTV DVR.  The reason I hate it is because it’s not a Tivo.  It’s a DirecTV DVR.  Well, it seems like I’m not alone in the “hate” for DVRs that aren’t real Tivo’s.  Over on PVRblog, a whole bunch of people agree with me.  From a consumer perspective, why DirecTV dumped Tivo is beyond me.

I have seen it all before Fast Follower, you are following to fast. What you don’t realize is that fast following is truly an art. Only skilled professionals should perform the feat, and please don’t try it at home. What was wrong with your old Tivo box??? It is called upgrading for a reason…you are supposed to get additional or enhanced features when you do it! Now you are upset cause you don’t get the performance and interface that you want. Not my fault. I have three Tivo boxes that I have had for years, I have the traditional Tivo service and I have no complaints! You remind me of the old TLC song…Waterfalls…

Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that
You’re used to
I know that you’re gonna have it your way
Or nothing at all
But I think you’re movin too fast!!!!

Y’all dont hear me!

I’m not “chasin’ waterfalls,” I was just trying to get another DirecTV Tivo for another tv in my house (the tv that I hooked up SlingBox to). So there was nothing wrong with any of my old Tivo boxes. I just needed an extra one. I would have gladly bought a DirecTivo, but my local Best Buy doesn’t sell them. They only sell the Directv DVRs.
