Busy Busy…

After a full night of work, I was off to do the tech prep errands…First stop was to the post office to pick up the ginormous box that the two HDMI cables were shipped in, Honestly you could have fit two full sized tivo’s in that thing…

Then off for a bit of a time kill at Honda. Stupid Fuel Cap Light wouldn’t quit… and for no good reason.

Two and a half hours later… and one new fuel cap (covered under warranty) I was on my way again… So much for quick trips…

So once again tightly sealed… the gas tank not me… never me… ok that sounds bad.. hmmm moving on.

I was on my way to pick up the new Series 3 TiVo HD DVR. And just a heads up – they do NOT work with cable boxes and DO require cable cards. Have I ever mentioned how much and how dearly I HATE cable cards. But alas it is what one must do. Though now I have to keep an HD box in addition just so that I can do my VOD also.. in a round about way.. sigh…

PS. I must say that the guy on the phone at TiVo sounded both cute and very patient with an angry and frustrated long term customer… This is the first time in the nearly 8 years I’ve had the service that I have been upset with them.

So any-who – new hd box in hand, cable card install appointment set. And TV delivery appointment set, I am ready to reset the home theater… ahh a geeky good time.
