is it worth it? I dunno.
Dissapointments: remote scheduling is really lame. What I want is a remote view of the Tivo setups, showing the Season Passes, etc.; what you get is the opportunity to search for shows. You cannot tell if you have already marked a show for recording and you can't change priority. I use the Yahoo grid next to the remote screen, but it's a poor way to do it.
iTunes does not show the TiVo as logged in (a small point, to be sure, but important especiallly if your Mac is really remote, like mine is, in a different building). You can't stream mp3 radio stations, and this is something that I really would like to see.
This is not an HMO issue, but: channel switching is really, really slow.
Hits: support for iTunes is awesome. I don't have another TiVo yet so cannot report on the way two units are controlled. Once you get the correct wireless units, setup is easy, and robust; I am showing 40% signal strength and no problems (I know there's not much data on download, but there IS on streaming, so there's some technology there smoothing things out). My Powerbook chokes on this signal strength. I DID have to get a Microsoft adapter, a tough thing for a Mac user! it works, though.
So. Am I gonna ask for my money back? no, I think I'll keep it, as it gives me admission to whine about it :-) and I love having iTunes on my AVR 7000.
