Ahh, in case I didn't mention it I have recently moved to the US. Hence 
the direct-tivo being useful :) I also pay tivo now for guide data, so I 
am legitimate ;-)

I never saw the 2.5 feature set (my AU based tivo was 1.3 :) but from 
what Chris Yeoh told me when he was over it was similar to 2.5. I do 
like the way the season passes are handled now :)

My only problem is that tivo records 5 hours of law and order each 
day... Not to mention the rest.
