TiVo's are so bloody wonderful that you risk just spending all your day watching tv and playing with the cool features.
Humans need exercise and TiVo's are a health risk in that regard as running and programing your TiVo from your phone can be very hazard-is in built up areas with traffic on the roads.
Potential buyers should also consider how many units they will need before purchasing and this can impact cost and family budget.
The assumption that your house only needs 1 unit is just wrong and the manufactures are misleading to even suggest this and the issue has, or will be raised with ComCom shortly.
Wifes and children seem to assume some kind of entitlement to Dad's TiVo once they've mastered its operation.
Consumers should also be warned that local distributor, Hybrid, have a clear policy to shame competitors by provider levels of service that other STB owners can only dream about. This kind of service could lead to new expectations being established in the New Zealand market. Such public shaming can not be tolerated.
In summary - TiVos are a clear danger to the heath industry which profits greatly from illness caused by consumer devices that stress consumers. They also provide a level of enjoyment beyond expectation and can cause family disruption as everyone wants a bloody TiVo!
