I have a TivoHD since Feb 09 on OTA of course.
Can I use my Canadian address to setup an account with Tivo?!
Then buy an HD Tivo from the US (since HD models aren't sold in Canada
You should buy the TivoHD first IMHO. Remember that Tivo will charge you in USD for the sub even with a Canadian Address.
I myself purchased a lifetime sub. I use the Champlain NY zip code to get all of the Montreal, Plattsburgh and Burlington stations guides.
I want to know your experiences with the Tivo HD box in satifying your entertainment experience.
Simple, it's the best consumer electronic equipment I've ever purchased and I had almost all of the gadgets ( DirecTV, CD, DVD, Game console, IPOD, Zune, Sirius/XM and ect) when they came out.
It runs 4 to 6 hours of recording time minimum per day. It's starts at 8:00 PM and end at 1:00 am ( Reno 911 reruns on CW ). 50 % of the time, it's recording two shows at once.
Did you hear sometimes stuff from your friends like; you know you're spending $ 600 USD, is it really worth it, will you get yours money worth?
With my Tivo, I got my money back in the first month, period
They guides are incredible, the interface is so simple but so complete. It's super stable ( Linux OS ), never add a reboot or froze. The commercial skip feature is addictive. I love the remote. I got the Wi-FI adaptor after.
The tuner sensitivity is pretty good, Microtune tuner, I get from my location 2 PBS affiliates, Fox, CW, ABC ( 60-80 % of the time,the signal is very weak in my area) NBC, CBS, SRC and CBC.
The rest: RTV, Tele-Quebec, V, CTV and TVA are on an other antenna via my Samsung Tuner.
I recommend taking the lifetime sub.
