  • Tivo service ...for free?

    May 31, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Free Tivo "Basic", burns DVDs easily
    Cons: Extremely poor Progressive scan DVD player.

    Summary: Ah Tivo. Very rarely does a new product enter the television viewing market, which literally revolutionizes the way people watch TV. The VCR was one of them, the DVD player another and now we have... Tivo. I admit having been skeptical of the ... read more

    Pros: Tivo and DVD burner, large Hard Drive, Great DVD Picture
    Cons: Only Toslink Digital audio out, need land line for first set up

    Summary: I have had my DVD player for about six months now. It was a great purchase. I have included links within this review to my Epinions reviews of the AV equipment that this unit is hooked up to. (you may need to cut and paste in your browser to read them) ... read more

    Pros: Features galore! Quick DVD burning, very nice interface.
    Cons: No audio CD burning. Leangthly guide updating and missing ability to manually change channel lineups.

    Summary: I have put off getting a Tivo due to the monthly fees. If I buy something, I want to use with without paying each month to use it. When I saw this unit on clearence, the tag said "Tivo basic included". This caught my attention. The sales guy at Sears ... read more

    Pros: A few buttons and all your shows are recorded; Record onto DVD
    Cons: Can't delete commercials, have to preplan the best quality to record each DVD at

    Summary: Meet Ed (I'll get to that later)---he's a Toshiba DVD Recorder with built in TIVO. Ed came to live with me about 2 months ago, and I can hardly remember a time when he wasn't in my life. Description a bit much so far, maybe. Price a bit high, yeah. ... read more

    Pros: Capabilities, Crisp Picture
    Cons: Confusing Owners Manual.

    Summary: Toshiba is a name you can trust in consumer electronics. They have been around for a long time, and have their headquarters based in Japan. Their products always receive high ratings from consumers groups, and their reputation is legendary. This fine ... read more

    Pros: Easy TIVO interface. Burns DVDs great. Excellent picture
    Cons: Channel lineup does not always match perfectly

    Summary: I have had this machine for nearly 2 years, and it still functions great. The one thing I wanted to respond to was the user who returned his machine a couple times because of DVD burning errors. I had the same issue, when I bused a specific DVD (I ... read more

  • Not reliable

    Pros: TIVO is easy to program, use, view.
    Cons: DVD burn unreliable.

    Summary: I purchased this DVD recorder with TIVO in October 2005. I chose this particular model for the ability to burn DVDs. The TIVO is fantastic, easy to use. I was able to burn DVD's easily for about 4 months, then I began getting an error message "saving ... read more

    Pros: * Ease of use * Quick setup * Great quality
    Cons: * Makes a little noise while recording * TV Guide (incl. w/ TiVo)

    Summary: Not meaning to quote everyone else but, HOW IN THE WORLD DID I LIVE WITHOUT THIS??? I can talk all day about how much I love being able to leave for work, school, wherever, and come back to ALL my shows taped and ready to watch...but I won't. I ... read more

  • Not for me.

    Pros: Compared to the Phillips - it has a larger hard drive and DVD recording option.
    Cons: S-L-O-W. Poorer picture. Imprecise channel changing. Requires external satellite box. 'Fair weather' customer support.

    Summary: My second TiVo machine and I am "D"isappointed! It took little time to acclimate to my Phillips TiVo and I got spoiled. It was clear, fast, and did what it was told - everytime. Not knowing, I thought I could only move up by buying into a machine with ... read more

    Pros: Easy to Use. Reliable Quality.
    Cons: Hard drive may be a little small.

    Summary: Tivo really is easy to use. And Toshiba is living up to its quality reputation. It is also great that with this unit the Tivo Basic capability comes free of charge. No need to pay the monthly fee. Only downside is it took me a couple days to ... read more

  • Discs don't play on Mac's!

    Feb 13, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Familiar TiVo interface is carried over onto burned DVDs
    Cons: Discs can't be played on Mac. Unlike regular TiVo's, 'Medium' quality is terrible.

    Summary: Not a bad unit but Mac owners beware: There is a flaw that will not allow the discs burned on the Toshiba RS-TX20 to be played on Mac's. Discussions with both TiVo and Toshiba technical support departments yields the same "tough luck" answer. The discs ... read more

    Pros: It is a Series 2 Tivo with a DVD Burner, menus very intuitive, great product.
    Cons: Some problems displaying darker images.

    Summary: The Toshiba RS-TX20 and RS-TX60 series of Tivo Series 2 units are wonderful. Mine works flawlessly and even includes Tivo-like menus on the DVDs. The only problem is that it does not handle darker images very well. But, in general, it is excellent! ... read more
