Yesterday afternoon. Brace yourself.
Our Tivo died.
A year and a half and the thing just made this very sad clicking sound. It broke my heart. I called any number of tech support people who were entirely unhelpful. I unplugged everything and tried it on another tv. It was dead. Deader than dead. I was so depressed I had to go hide under the covers.
After brunch with friends this morning, we made the only possible determination that there could be. We went out and bought a new Tivo. This one with the Best Buy extended warrenty option which I highly recommend all Tivo owners to purchase. God. That was overly upsetting. An entire day and a half without Tivo. I had seriously forgotten how to watch TV without it!!!
I keep justifying the purchase by telling myself that at least it wasn't a Plasma TV I was buying.
Really dodged a bullet on that.
