I live within 2-3 blocks of a NJTransit bus route that originates at Port Authority. That seems easy enough for all of you city folk.

Agree that Lodi via mass transit would be more convenient for NYC folks than my location (near Freehold)...if not my place or yours I hope we get invite!

Talking

People tell me I should be in Tivo sales - I have a SA Tivo and a DTV Tivo, both wired via a digital multiplexor throughout the house, and every time someone comes over and asks where my VCR is I launch into a 30 minute sales pitch.

Richard, bring your units to Madison, WI. The beer here is great, and my house is perfect for this kind of thing: http://www.fxtech.com/house/house.html

Puleeze!!

Every time I wear my TiVo polo or TiVo t-shirt I make a point to try and get into Best Buy at lunch. Sold one this week.

Perhaps someone knows of a bar or restaurant with a DirecTV dish and a tech savvy owner/manager?

I think you all are missing the point if he has two d'tivo with two tuners that means he has a operational softwre. And if he has operational software I want it now. So what if it has a few bugs what we talk about if it didn't. So send it to everybody now and we all can have are own party whereever we live.

I know they said summer but wouldn't it be nice if a software company could actually beat there dead line for once.

I have noticed that it no longer seems to be referred to as a "DirecTiVo." Is that an official move? Or was that moniker simply something we were tossing around here, but which was never in official use?

OT, but until someone slaps the fingercuffs on me, so called SA PVR's are ReplayTIVO's, and DirecTV receivers with TIVO service are DirecTIVO's.

Shorter (and kinda' cutesy)!

Now about the DirecTIVO's with two tuners enabled......

RB,

Don't know where you're flying from, but if its from the southeast you'll probably go through Atlanta.

I'll be your Vanna White in Atlanta and host the demo! You can use my house too.

Count me in!

That's a great idea. I know of a few bars here in Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope that have Direct TV, but let's try to find someplace in the City (Manhattan). Anyone have a connection?

I can't believe it is so hard to find a New Yorker with DirectTV. I know that buildings sometimes frown upon a dish, but I installed mine with minimum hassle. (Dish System not Direct--Can't live without the Superstations that somehow manage to keep going and going, just like the Energizer Bunny)

If we can't get the assistance of a "friend" or a "friendly" set-up, perhaps we could try to make it somewhat "official" -- kind of like the Tivo Demo days. We could rent a bar for an evening, or get them to donate the space in exchange for advertising and good will and invite the public. It could be a small time PR event to raise Tivo awareness.

And considering that there are so few New Yorkers here on the forums, it seems clear that Tivo needs to build more of a market presence here in the city.

I am available for help if needed. Just let me know.

Talking

I just happened to see this here tonight, and thought I would offer my assistance, and see if it works out for everyone. I live in West New York, NJ. I'm right on the Hudson, across from Manhattan. For those of you in Manhattan, it is extremely easy to get to me. You can take the NY Waterway ferry from 38th St. (it's a 6 min. ferry ride), my apartment complex is just up the road from the pier. My apartment is about 1300sf, so I can probably accomodate, the # of people that you're looking to have, plus I've got a couple of balconies with a killer view (good for drinking beer on!!).
I just recently moved in, and had my dish set up last week. I already have 2 lines running into my Philips DirecTivo, plus a 3rd directly into my RCA 38" widescreen, that has a DirecTV tuner built in.

So, I'm very close, very convenient, easily accessible to everyone, and got all the right equipment....let me know what you think???

Mike

Oh well! Richard if ya ever choose to come down Gnashville way to do a demo, I've got 16 acres and a hottub for 6. I figure I can park a couple of hundred cars in my front yard, and best of all I have DTV and enough coax to cable a dozen homes. If you hurry you can catch the last day of Fanfare, and hundreds of pounds of Tennessee BBQ down on the Cumberland River.

My grandparents were from around Newport... The food here in Chicago still can't touch a good Tennessee BBQ.

Some of my best memories growing up were of the summer picnics.

Sigh. Now I'm homesick.

Tennessee... ah, fond memories.

It sounds like you have great digs!

As a kid from N.J. who used to ride the train ferry's to Manhatten when I could, I'm curious:

This "NY Waterway" ferry is one of those new fast boats, right. What does it connect with on the Jersey side? Buses? Is it the only cross Hudson ferry now? Was it set up to reduce congestion in the Lincoln tunnel? How much does it cost?

When I was a kid (waxing nostalgic) I would, on occasion, take the S.I. Ferry to St. George, the S.I.R.T to Tottenville, the Perth Amboy Ferry to Jersey (long gone; the ferry, not Jersey), and the bus home.

I understand you can get as far as Tottenville, these days for $3.00, and the S.I. Ferry is free for pedestrians. (It used to cost a nickle.) The whole trip, the poor man's train and boat excursion, used to cost around a buck, including $.15 for the subway to the Battery.
