After a week struggling to connect my new TIVO and having Sky for the same week, I'm reaching the conclusion that I'd be better off spending £12 on a 2nd Sky sub than £10 on TIVO. Having been used to VCR'ing one channel whilst watching another, I now realise you can't do this with Sky (apart from the 5 terrestrial channel - but who wants to watch or record in anologue?!). So when I want to record anything on SKY, whether on TIVO or VCR, I have to watch it too or switch off, or watch a terrestrial channel! With a 2nd Sky sub I can watch one channel on Sky and record another. I know Sky+ allows you to do this, but it's £350 to buy. Anyone have any other suggestions? How much is a one week old Thomson TIVO worth on the 2nd hand market?
