I keep hearing about this product so I'm getting very interested in it. I plan to definitely do some research on it in the next day or two but I figured I'd come on here and ask the people who have it some questions as well. 1. Is TIVO something like, say, a DVD player or a video game system where you can just hook it up to the back of your TV with some supplied colored plugs and you are good to go or is there more to it? 2. I have DirecTV as well as "regular or local" TV stations and cable. Will TIVO record from just one or the other or does it have the capability where I can record, say, HBO on DirecTV and Nick at Nite on regular cable? 3. Can you record more than one show at once? 4. Lastly, does TIVO record programs commercial free? Any other personal comments/opinions would be great. Thanks in advance guys.
