Its an oldie but a goodie
What use could am analog tivo be you may wonder? This is the last available model that offered an IR blaster to control the set-top box. I am using mine to control a direct TV tuner and it's a lot cheaper than the $25 fee that DirecTV charges just to have access to a digital box. And if I got another one and stuck it in my bedroom then it shares the shows. Plus it supports the tivo desktop plus software so I can transfer to my computer or phone for storage. Its also really fast. it may be low res but who cares?

The DVR worked good but Tivo service would not activate it because they don't activate Tivo series 3 and below . So unless you do like I did and take the hard drive out and put it in one you already have that I activated two years ago before they quit activating the older ones . The one I have went out and it was a bad hard drive. So I switched hard drives with the one I got on eBay and reset and deleted everything on it and my old one works great. If you don't reset and delete it won't record. It will keep giving you a hardware error. Just thought this might be helpful to someone who doesn't know.

Does the job!
This is my first TiVo experience after years of using cable and satellite DVR units. I was not expecting the set-up to be as complicated as it turned-out to be, but, as my unit was purchased used, I believe that made the necessary steps less obvious on connection. Once we re-configured the box to our cable service and placed the IR sensor for the remote in the correct spot, we were in business! The menu is easy enough to learn, and upon testing the online recording options we seem to be communicating fine. I was a little disappointed that with digital cable this model will only tune to "basic" channels when recording on a cable channel. Still, all in all, I'm happy with my purchase. If you have a busy schedule, TiVo is a great way to store the programs you like for viewing on your time! :)
Great Product! Fairly Easy Setup.
Here it goes. I'll be plain & simple about it. Like --- Tivo is a great product that far surpasses the DVR I used to have. The cable company DVR was very simple to use but didn't have any of the cool things that my Tivo has. Very cool to look at. All menus are colorful and make you feel good. The sounds are kind of addicting as well. Cons --- Setup was easy for me, but to someone who doesn't know anything about setting up a "Home Network" the setup might be a "Trial & Error" experience. Other than that the entire setup process does take about an hour, or 45 minutes, depending on your knowledge of networks and such. Overall --- 4/5 stars for this product. Some things can be confusing at first, but when all is said and done, this thing rocks the house. Very cool DVR with tons of options. Plus setting your DVR from the internet at work is pretty neat too.
TiVo Needs a Subscription to Work
The TiVo series 2, TCD649080 will get you into using TiVos for a small expense. The hardware alone is useful, even without a subscription. UPDATE -- June 2011 -- Wrong!! TiVo now seems to download something so that YOU CANNOT USE THE HARDWARE WITHOUT A SUBSCRIPTION.. I GUESS THEY CHANGED SOMETHING. WORKAROUND UNKNOWN... SORRY. You can record and playback, record by schedule which you set like a VCR. With a subscription, extra from TiVo the TiVo is much more useful, but you can try it initially with no subscription ... IF the box has been previously set up and has not been reset to require a login with TiVo. With this unit you can also pause and "fast forward" your live TV as it automatically keeps a 30 minute window of the program you are watching. BEWARE... this unit will not take a digital cable directly and will not take a HD signal. Buy series 3 or newer for that.
