2010/01/26 Tivo The End Of An Era
π 2010-01-26 00:00 in Linux
I recently sold my original Sony Tivo 1 which came with a 30GB drive back then (although I did upgrade it to a whooping 120GB, but more importantly added a network card, tivonet and tivoweb. I think I paid $200 for it back in 2001 (special VA Linux employee price) and another $200 for lifetime subscription.

It was still working fine but was pretty useless for me since it only worked with analog cable. I did find a taker at work and "sold" it to him for 3 google tshirts :)

Eh, I've been a happy mythtv user for about 3 years now and while I wish I could just get all my programs on the net, if possible interruption free, we might not be quite there yet for everything I record (especially for HD programming), but we're definitely getting very close. From time to time I remind myself that I need to get a newer version of Boxee or XBMC (I found out at LCA that XBMC will soon have a fully featured mythfrontend replacement and that I'll just be able to use XBMC to talk to mythtv and its 6 tuners while streaming off the net for other programs).
