  • Cons: Now this machine is constantly freezing up and not working well with the cards. I've had the cards replaced by the cable company but it hasn't helped much. The shows are often scrambled now both when recording and watching it live.

  • Cons: Have already had to replace one for a known problem that they can't fix. Now the replacement is doing the same thing as the first one. Tivo wants to walk me through all the same troubleshooting steps repeatedly.
