4 month old HD DVR, finished (thank god under warranty). So far, in my life I have owned 5 TIVO units, some stand alone, some DTV. 3 of the 6 have crapped out, and one makes a loud noise constantly. Only 1 of my TIVO's have ever lasted as long as 3 years.

Good riddance, Tivo.

Tivo is only software they don't manufacture any units.My first Tivo was a Sony had 5+ years.Still works gave it to my nephew after I went hd in 2 rooms.My HR10-250 is slow,but thats because directv hasn't released software updates for tivo based software.Every company from cable to satellite have developed their own dvrs.Theres +'s and -'s to both.Theres alot of complaints about the directv dvr guide being real shoddy.As long as cable and satellite providers get 3-5 companies to manufacture their dvrs problems are expected.

IT's the O.S that failed every single time. It's Tivo.
