My home theater setup was graced with both a DVD Changer and a TiVo unit this past Christmas. The TiVo is soooo cool. It’s basically a little Linux box with a hard drive in it that allows you to pause and rewind live TV and easily record your favorite shows using an on-screen guide. The physical setup was a breeze (just like a VCR) and the software configuration only took about an hour. After that I was able to interact with live TV, set up a season pass (to record all those new episodes of “Farscape”, and search for new programming. There’s too much to write here, so visit their web site or the TiVo Community Forum for more information. This thing is great!
