Went over to Circuit City this morning and picked up the new DircecTivo unit. Took a while because they had to open the box and scan the smart card in the unit's activiation slot. There was almost no one in the store. I hate to think how long it would have taken if the store had been packed. They were pretty nice though and the fact that the unit was $99 made it all worthwhile. Now I will fiind out what all of the hoopla has been about regarding the greatness of the Tivo units. If it is only half as good as people say it will be a hundred times better than a VCR.
