Tivo Revisited

My Tivo came yesterday. I spent a few hours setting it up to interact with my wireless network. I can search TV listings online and schedule recordings from my computer. I can also view photos and listen to music that is stored on my computer on the TV screen (kids were impressed by this). I also hooked it to my DVR so that I can burn DVDs. I'm hoping to find some good kids' shows to record (I think we have every movie ever made but we'll see). I've created a "Season Pass" to Survivor and Apprentice-Trump. It was a bit frustrating to deal with the wires (why oh why isn't everything wireless already!?). Other than that, it works flawlessly. I have no idea why I didn't do this sooner.

While I was at it, I purchased a fax machince that differentiates calls and can be used on a regular phone line. I feel like I'm coming out of the stone age!
