Replying from other thread...
If he wanted to cancel service and then sell his equipment, I am sure there are hundreds of people here (including me) that would love to pick up another TiVo! He could make some of his money back.....but I can almost guarantee that after a week of viewing live TV, he will be back to TiVo.....it's addicting . I know there is no way back for our family....we will never watch LiveTV again.
I think his point of destroying it is...Sure, he's out a few hundred bucks. But the TiVo can't be used to have someone else get the service. Hence the wording of "taking it out of circulation". If he sold it, someone would have gotten the service and TiVo would be receiving money from the box, which is not what he wants. (He does think that TiVo should go out of business after doing this.) That's just the way he thinks. And yes, I don't hang out with him much.
Me, Personally, as I said before...The email was too much. The PTCM I can live with this time because I know it's coming, but I don't think ads should be in the PTCM. I don't mind the TiVo Central icon at all, I think it makes a welcome difference to that screen, since I don't use macros.
So count my vote as a one vote hated it, second vote didn't mind it, just tone it down.
