On the verge of purchasing a TiVo box from NL (while I can still get one). Briefly considered an X-9200HD, but too expensive, plus SBS is/will be history, and Sky card will be useless once we drop it.
The home network setup is attractive, but, I won't be purchasing a 2nd one anytime soon.
I understand TiVo recordings are not encrypted, and can be copied to PC if desired (how hard is that?). Does anyone know if the TiVo uses a common codec, or can I just play those files unmodified on my PC (Win 7 & XP)?
Also, I get the impression the EPG (via internet) on TiVo is better than the Freeview DVB-T one, is that true?
How hard is it to connect an external HDD to the TiVo? - not the "official" $399 (quoted price) version.
