I just received a bonus and am seriously thinking of getting Tivo. The only thing holding me back is that my cable company is supposed to offer DVR service someday (Adelphia cable - so who knows what’s going to happen when it’s sold). I’ve heard that the boxes that the cable company provides are not as good as Tivo but I’d hate to invest in it if Tivo isn’t going to be around for awhile.
I’m sold on the technology so I’m really just asking if Tivo is the Betamax of this decade. Should I take the plunge or wait for Adelphia?
