TiVo back in The House

It only took an extra week to get the Tivo rolling, I ordered 2 cable cards from my cable provider and had 2 cable boxes show up. Then a tech came and installed the cards, but one of them was dead. Verizon was good enough to send out another tech two days later, on a Saturday and now all is good in the hood. Carin has Masterpiece Theatre cranked up and I’m getting back episodes of Heroes and Galactica.

With Fios now all digital, our Tivo Series 2 is really just nice piece of plastic. Did you get a Series 3 with your return to Tivo I assume? Are the cards working out? Does the serial connection work?


We passed our Series 2 over to my in-laws and they love it (of course). I went with the HD over the series 3. From what I saw on engadget it wasn’t worth it since if I need extra space I go all the way to the 500GB expander, and I use a universal remote so the new Tivo Peanut is not worth a cent to me.

The cards were a bit of a hassle, I got a bad one so the tech had to make a second trip but they came on a Saturday so it wasn’t a big deal. FIOS also screwed up and sent me two set top boxes first before I got the appointment for the cards, but they refunded me $50 on my bill so that was worth it.

I haven’t tried the serial connection, what’s that supposed to get me?
