I've used TiVo for years before sky+ came along, and it's amazing... One if the very few things that you buy and far exceed the expectations.

Trust me, u won't regret getting TiVo.

Where'd you get it from years ago ?

It was originally released in 2000 (by Thompson I believe), but didn't sell well and stopped in 2002.
Virgin have now bought TiVo.

I was quoted £50 for the box then £40 to set it up...

i was quoted £50 for tivo and £50 for v+ hd box and £30 credit, so got both for £70, but free set up
i'll be selling my sky hd box to reimburse costs,

I've had it for about two months now and really like it.

Not as quick as Sky HD box, but a massive improvement on the old V+ box.

No, it carried on in America, and I believe they used an imported one.



I was refering to UK, but anyway.

TiVo never really took off here in the UK, but there's been a small(ish) following of users for years.
The boxes that are used here are Series 1 Thomson, and NOT imports from the USA. Places such as tivoland.com/ sell them still, although TiVo have recently announced that they are stopping the guide updating (due to going to Virgin).

If Sky did a TiVo box, I would get one in a heartbeat.
