I usually explain to friends that I used to spend $8-10 per month for the TV Guide. I don't need those any more. The "TiVo version" even reads itself for me. [/B]


This justification doesn't work when you can get a free television guide, complete with VCR+ codes, in your Sunday newspaper. I, for one, would love to have a UTV, or DirecTivo, but don't think it's worth $10 to $13 per month for a SAT fed program guide. Since there is already a program guide that comes with D*TV service, why does that not work with UTV, or DirecTivo?

I know TIVO has some functions that are operable without the subscription. What about UTV? Does the 50x require a subscription? Are there any DVRs that will work without a subscription, just using the SAT service's program guide to record by?

But why would you need the Tivo program guide when you have one coming from Dish or D*?
