Since I'm new here, I must be missing something. So apparently the 'TS' prefers the old Tivo unit, thus, he's not to be believed and this is actually some sort of conspiracy?
I don't understand what the point to that ('agenda') would be, or what it could possibly accomplish; I simply see his compendium as a tool I might utilize as a reference for something that may occur with one of my HR's. And if it was one mentioned on that list would very much put my mind at ease, while saving me a phone call to DTV.
What you are missing is context. You would have to go back to the DirecTV TiVo thread.http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=174544
Not only that but the previous versions of the DirecTV TiVo thread.
The TS does have an agenda with his lists, and that is to show how much better it would be to have TiVo. Nothing more than that.
Being new here you should do a little searching through the threads for the last three years and investigate the TS’s claims before you begin naysaying those of us who disagree with him. You will find that many of those issues don’t exist. The TS even admits that some portion of those lists were from posts he read from others without regard to whether or not they are accurate or are no longer an issue...which is my major problem with those lists. They are a compilation of complaints. If one wanted to read the forums long enough, one could produce just as long a list for TiVo, or anything else for that matter.
What we have are people, who take those lists at face value, without actually verifying anything, and then turn around and complain about those who disagree with the TS. The fact is there is a lot wrong with those lists and if you do a little research you’ll see that it would be a very, very poor “tool [you] might utilize as a reference”, because there is so much wrong with it that you couldn’t make an informed decision.
Do not take my word for any of what I’ve just posted. AAMOF, I don’t want you to believe
a word of it. Instead, do the research yourself; search the threads, search other forums, and then make up your mind. Then if you agree with the TS, at least you will have all the information to base your opinion on.
