Hi thre
Does the TIVO cope/work with poor signals??
Im in a bit of a gully. Old analogue UHF was quite bad here

My Zinwell(UHF freeveiw) is good with my weak signals, will the TIVO work as well ??

I use to get pixelization on certain channels using the Freeview tuner built into my TV ... and now I dont have an problems with any of the channels using the Tivo.
Then again, it might work for you and it might not work for you....

My signal is marginal as well. My (limited) experience is that the tuner on the TIVO is at least as good as the built in one in the TV, and far far better than the only other STB (Visione VE4000) that I have tried.
