My TiVo came in last night -- I was very pleased; I even did the dance of TiVo goodness.

I took it home, and plugged it into the TV and let it do it's guided setup thing as I rushed around doing last minute cleaning before people came over for the BBQ at my house.

Cleaning included my stealth operation to wipe out a colony of bees deciding to make their home underneath the grill my mother gave me; and then watch the effects of my bee genocide. But, after that was done, Raven, J, P and MK came over, and we grilled meat.

It's very difficult to be a grill master and a host at the same time; unfortunately, the meat suffered slightly.

We hung out outside, and Raven pulled out her new card games; we made a valiant attempt to play outside, but the tiki torches did not give enough illumination, and the mosquitos were being pesky, so we went inside.

So, it was 10:15 PM when everyone went home, and I had a chance to check the status of my TiVo. I flipped the switch, to start recording my shows, and what do I see?

The lower half of the screen continually fuzzes.


This means I need to repeat the dance of exchanging the TiVo when I get home tonight. The bright side, is that a friend of mine had the exact same thing happen, and they should ship as soon as I have a tracking number.

But still.

Current Mood: disappointed disappointed

I love my TiVo. Hang in there.

I wish I could find my IR cord, though. It's packed, somewhere, and I can't use it with my DISH box until I can find the IR emitter. GRR.
