  • Mood:
My TiVo's modem has died. The eternal problem of the TiVo design is a bad modem. There was a lightning storm in the area last night, which probably caused the failure. Of course, nothing else on the phone line had a problem. Argh.

Everything about the TiVo other than the modem is working. Just the modem. So in about two weeks it'll be out of program data. $133 for the out-of-warranty repair. But a new unit is $299, and I'd have to buy a new "lifetime service" (another $250), so it's a bargain at least.

Anyway, fun.

(Yet another reason to explain away my inability to save.)

This waste of a post is made from 100% recycled electrons.
