What's everyone's opinion on the Philips DVR with the TiVo service combined with digital cable?

Something i found last year when a friend wanted to figure a way to add a bigger harddrive to his TiVo.


It works nicely. We upgraded his 30 hour model to around a 100 hours by adding a 60 gig drive. :D

To let everyone know what TiVo is, TiVo is a service that allows users to pause, record, fastforward, rewind live TV, Sat., Cable, etc...Philips, Sony, GE and the other big boys in electronics make DVRs ( Digital Video Recorders) that instead of recording to a tape allows you to record to a harddrive in the DVR unit. TiVo combined with a DVR unit lets you control every aspect of your TV experience

OK - I had never heard of it either, to me it sounds just like digital TV which we have in Australia, it's only be active for 20 days though!

Yes Mr. Tweak it is Digital TV but you can record it and fast forward etc... So is it worth it over there cause it is fairly new here still also

Does it cost anything over there? I'm pretty certain here all you have to do here is buy a new TV capable of the new digital signal or get an adapter for your existing TV.

yes it does cost here, it is 9 dollars a month or 250 dollars lifetime

/olie packs up his gear and moves to the US

01-23-2002, 01:19 AM
hehe not too fast ollie my man, you still have to pay for digital cable to go with that. That will run about 30-70 US dollars per month

You can get this in Canada via satellite - the service is still $10 - 65 cdn - but the unit itself is $500+cdn

Pretty sure Digital TV in Australia is free... :?:

if your tv supports it and you buy a nice little box that will set you back a fair bit

It is - and I thought it came active on 1st January 2001, not 2002 :?:

We are kinda of the same way. Digital is free here but you have to get a box from your cable provider or a retail box. You get the same stations with a few more added. How is HDTV coming along down under
