TiVo HD XL is I4U Top 100 Gift Tip #80
 
Buy TiVo HD XL from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

TiVo is still the best way to record TV programming and gain control over your television. I cannot imagine watching TV without recording shows and jumping over the darn commercial breaks.
TiVo is now going to also support Netflix movie streaming this Holiday making the TiVo boxes the ultimate gateway to entertainment content in your living room.
The TiVo HD XL is the top of the line TiVo box that you can buy today. With the TiVo HD XL you can save up to 150 hours of HD TV shows or save up to 1,350 hours of standard definition TV. The TiVo HD XL works with Cable and Antenna, but not with Satellite signal.
You can record two shows at the same time. The TiVo HD DVR uses either ONE Multi-stream CableCARD (M-Card) or TWO Single-stream CableCARDs (S-Card). Either of these configurations will allow the DVR to record two channels at once.

The only pain with TiVo is the additional cost for the service. Month-to-month runs at $12.95. If you commit to a three year contract you get it down to an average of $8.31/month. You can also buy an unlimited product life-time service for $399. If you have gotten used to a TiVo you quickly see that the service fee is well worth the value TiVo offers.

For Whom:

The TiVo HD XL is for people who watch all the hot shows at once, the HD XL is the largest capacity DVR available in the U.S.

The Good:

  • Easy to use TiVo Interface
  • Huge capacity
  • Records two shows simultaneous
  • Can use CableCard decoders so you can get rid of the Cable box
  • Record HD and SD

The Bad:

  • Service fee

Where to Buy:

The TiVo HD XL is on sale on Amazon.com for $595.58. Compare prices on other shops.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
