I bought a great Tivo from Tivoland on ebay
It's been a god send this christmas as my daughter has been ill for over two weeks and you can record lots of 9yr old viewing!!
I can only just remember simpsons is at 6pm whereas it used to schedule homework time!!
Also I only have to set recording once for a fortnight of viewing. COOL! I have tivoweb which makes it soooooo easy.
I hope you enjoy it, it's been a great hit in this house!
