Matt got TiVo. Kim got TiVo. I am destined to be the last person in the world without TiVo.

No, that would be me, Kris. I’m saving to move to Vegas, so I won’t be spending money frivilously until I move, which will be late next year at the earliest. *sigh* i want tivo.

Go for it. I’ll live vicariously through you.

Kris–your courage in the face of this heartbreak is inspiring. I’ll keep lighting candles for you: “And bless Mom and Dad and little brother and please let TiVo kick in over in Australia for Kris…” 🙂
(Seriously–TiVo should get it together and tap into your market! My fingers are crossed.)

been chasing a TiVo-like thing for some time now here, the best I have found is a MSI TV @nywhere, on my Duron 1.1G, 256Mb RAM system it captures in DVD quality great 🙂 and it has a remote control as well. Try one, you’ll like it (as long as you have lots of HDD space left). But I just cap in SVCD quality and just burn it straight to CD to keep. 🙂

That’s Windows? We try to avoid the Evil Empire. We’ve got XP running on the games machine by necessity, but we’d prefer not to be beholden to them if possible. I’ve been looking into EyeTV for my Mac, but they don’t have the NTSC version out yet. The Snook’s main objection to setting up a homegrown PVR is just that the damn hardware is so expensive. He’s saying he hasn’t seen an MPEG-2 encoder for less than $600 AU.
At any rate, he’s been reading up on the newsgroups about ways people have been hacking the TiVo to work here. Now I just have to figure out how to import one. Anyone coming to visit anytime soon? 🙂
