Recommendations for new D Tivo service

973 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  drpjr
An elderly couple I have known many years have C service with HD Tivo/cablecards. They have had trouble with the cards in the past and the Tivo has bit the dust. They received an HD DVR from C until they can decide what to do.

They are fed up with C and the cable cards. They do not like the "new" DVR interface/learning curve and would have the same reaction to an HR-DVR.

The new D Tivo DVR would seem to be ideal for them. They only require one DVR and an SD box in another room although they have reported a few times needing three tuners, but that is rare. The monthly cost of a second Tivo on the main TV would not be an issue.(changing inputs might)

This seems to me to be a simple straightforward install but I'm not up on the Tivo so:

Is the Tivo interface the same as the older stand alones? Peanut? etc.

Will D allow two DVR's on a single TV in a new install?

Does the Tivo require/use phone or internet? VOD?

I am aware there is no MRV with the Tivo.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

1. Yes, it's the same user interface as the older Series 1 and Series 2 Tivos.

2. There should be no issues installing two THR22 Tivos to one TV if that's what they want.

3. Phone/internet connections are not "required", but they'll need one or the other to order PPV movies with their remote control.

Perfect. Thank You.
