Beware No1: Tivo

If you happen to buy yourself a lovely TiVo, or in my case get bought one as a fab Xmas pressie, it's worth knowing that

1) you can't use it for at least 4 hours after you get it out of the box. It's got to download and index all that metadata for a week.
2) only say your package contains channels you'd consider watching stuff from. Otherwise it's yet more data to download and index.
3) If you're on NTL, in a former Cable&Wireless area, with a Pace 4000 box - good luck. The channel switching doesn't work properly yet. Boo.
4) Have a really good look at the totally top tivocommunity.com and search out the UK section.
