Comcast support too good to be true

I ordered a Series 3 TiVo last night, after TiVo dropped the price $300, which essentially pays for 3 years of service. So instead of paying $12 a month for the Comcast DVR+service, I am paying $22/month ($800/36) and getting a much larger disk and better DVR.

So call Comcast and a very nice woman helps me out and says all I need to do is bring my Comcast DVR into the Nimbus office and I will get two Cable Cards.

I had to go to the Apple Store anyway, so I stopped in at the nearby Comcast office to see if I could get my cards early. No surprise, they don’t have cards and I need to make an appointment. So I have an install on Wednesday morning. If the TiVo arrives early Tues I might even get a late Tuesday install.


  1. Let me know how that works out for you. I am very interested in the TIVO series 3. It has many more features than the DirecTIVO unit as you know. Does Comcast have HD Sci-Fi network?

    Also, dude, The Apple Store? WTF!

    Burl 😉

  2. LOL. Yep, That way if they tell me something bogus, I can hold THEM to it.

    No HD SCI-FI sadly. Sucks for BSG.

  3. Too bad the series 3 does not do the Tivo2Go. I’ve copied so many movies over to the home theater 500 gig drive, it would be a shame to lose that. Series 4?

  4. TiVo is apparently working on TTG for S3. It’ll downgrade HD to SD or something, because thats what the movie studios want.
