I wondered if anyone was aware of more recently manufactured Tivos? I'm sure the Cisco ones were followed by Samsung ones, but I remember complaints at the time that the new machines were not as good?
I know the spec won't have changed (apart from wanting them cheaper no doubt!) but just thinking new builds might mean more capable components, read/write speeds etc. Didn't the US versions always perform better? If there are any hardware improvements in more recent builds it might go a little way to making my Virgin experience better than the hideously slow thing I have now? Grasping at straws really but my Tivo is getting more and more sluggish and something has got to improve (certainly by the end of contract!)
