No need to dump anything.
TIVO is an O/S and a flawless one at that.
They have the BEST guide data information BAR NONE.
It is always accurate (first runs & repeats) extremely detailed (original air date, actors, full detailed description of episodes including the title of the episode etc...)
and, to top it all off, they give you 14 days worth!
It can be used on any type of hardware (dbs,dss,cable whatever). The current receivers would remain and still work. Now let's see if one of the Canadian Satellite providers is smart enough to snatch a contract with them.
Unfortunately the cable provider in my area is Videotron and, even if by some freakish accident of nature TIVO fell on there lap, it would be a cold day in Hell before i migrate to that 2 bit pathetic excuse for a provider... i think i'd rather stop watching tv alltogether (waiting a year for the shows to come out on BlueRay Disc would be less painfull then having to endure watching tv via Videotron).
