So dad comes home,

"Son, here's a Tivo. It records the teley."

"Righto dad..."

And that's as much as I know.

So PitMonkeys, help?

Is it worth me learning how to use it?

And the only reason neither me nor my dad knows how to use is that Tivo hasn't been released in Aus, per se... So the sales-person-dude-thing-bloke-guy doesn't know how to use it, either.

All I know is apparently Amercians love it.

So, is it actually any good at all?

Cheers, PitMonkeys.

tivo ****in rules


you can record a show or movie thats on when you cant watch it, and watch the recording anytime you want...

you can pause and rewind live tv, so you can go back if you miss somthing or you have to take a piss. you can have it record shows for you. you can type in a show, actor, or genre, and it'll record all of those shows, all shows with that actor, and any show it thinks you might like. basically you can watch whatever you want whenever you want.

Unless it is in the future. But even still, during live tv, you can pause it when it comes to a commercial, wait a few minutes and then fast forward through them all.

I don't have Tivo, I have something else, but it is definitely worth it.

You can choose to record shows onto it and watch at different times. A movie is playing on TV at a time when you can't watch it. Record it onto TiVo, watch it when you can.

Also, it records what you are watching so you can pause, rewind, etc. You need to go to the bathroom but you fear the commercials will end before you get back, hit pause and then you can fastforward through commercials until you get to the point where the show is playing.

Tivo's great, but you've only JUST heard about it?

It's been around for almost a decade.

No you shouldn't learn to use it because it will take 5 seconds of your life and is extremely complex.

You could have learned how to use it in the time it took to post this. Of course you should learn how, it's awesome.

EDIT: Oh nevermind, it doesn't work where you live. Use google, you can probably hack something to make it work.

That's what you get for living in Australia. It's not completely backwater, but there's some stuff that we just don't have yet. I have heard of it, a couple of years back, but it's only just arrived and hasn't technically been released yet.

Since I posted this thread, I think I've learnt some stuff. I dunno what though.


Ooh! I found the games.
