    Their server must be getting pounded….i can signup for the download no problem, but it only actually downloads 5mb of the 276mb before dropping the connection. Guess I will just have to try again tomorrow.

    speaking of TTG, what was the turnaround for getting the service upgrade to use it?

    – ZC

    Many people who have never really burned DVDs before are being shocked at the “Encoding time” required (which is really typical) Those with slow CPUs (under 1GHz) will not be happy…

    See for some experiences with the product.

    How sad, I can almost get the burning software before i even get the TTG update!

    Yeah, I’ve seen that. It is really a shame – that’s just life. It isn’t TiVo’s problem, and I think the people saying TiVo needs to find a way to make this quick and easy are being dumb. Sure, they could change their systems to record everything in DVD compliant MPEG2 – which the DVD-RW units do – but that also severely drops recording time for higher quality levels. And it won’t help when they go to CableCARD for digital cable, you’d still need to re-encode that signal. And you’ll need to do it for DirecTV too, if they ever pick up TTG.
