'New' TiVo HD is here

It occurs to me that the remote might conflict with the other TiVo HD....I had set the code for DVR1, but hadn't changed the DVR2 position to code #2 yet. At least not on my old remote. I tried the new remote with DVR2 set to #2, and it worked....surprised me.

But, that's great...no conflicts.

Just my DVI switcher is backwards to the physical placement of #1 and #2 TiVo HD's. I suppose I could renumber, but that's too confusing....just not used to having to use my DVI Switcher so much yet.

Until now, it is almost always on the #1 position for the first TiVo HD. Only once in a while did I switch it to #2 where the DVD player used to be at....which tends to be just once each weekend. #5 was the Cox HD DVR, but right now there isn't enough on that it haven't needed it. There is the question about whether I still need it now that I have two TiVo HDs. Though I suspect short term...I'm going to hang on to it until next year. Since it'll probably take the start of fall plus start of winter seasons to decide if I have enough HD tuners to cover my needs and wants.

Anyways....I guess I'll be calling Cox tomorrow to arrange for another pair of cablecards.

Now to see what it takes to get the TiVo HD to upgrade itself from the 8.1.7 stock software, and let me hook up the My DVR Expander to it.

Plus I'm curious to see these new features that people have been talking about elsewhere...like the more Amazon.com stuff.

Hmmm, it seems to have rebooted during the latest forced service connection. Wonder if it is upgrading?

....

Nope. Not yet....it just turned the screen black for some reason (probably timed out and was reverting to Live TV)....I think that's the video freeze bug...I've read about. The menus still work, but the background is black. And, Live TV won't work anymore. Don't know about recorded material, because there isn't any on here.

Guess it's wait for connect to finish and reboot it.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
