DirecTV, Tivo and HD

We bought a splendid HD TV a week or so ago – a Sony – very pleased with the quality.

I did the cable magic and got the DirecTV up to speed as well. I decided to go with the ‘old’ HR10-250 Tivo based DVR, rather than the newer MPEG4 non-Tivo DVR. Call it Tivo loyalty.

Nice to know that rather than the $400 we estimated for getting the work done; it cost me around $15 for the extra LNB for the satellite dish and about $20 for the good quality coax. Good job I can still crimp cables 😉
