TiVo II: Got it connected

Last weekend I got my new TiVo connected and up and running. Physical installation was not difficult. Setup was easy – I did not need to open of the 180-page manual. In less than half an hour I had programmed the TiVo and set up the service via the web.

The TiVo has two USB slots on the back, and can connect to a wireless network using a USB Wireless device. Fortunately I had a compatible one lying around. According to the manual, TiVo requires a "setup call" using the build-in modem and a phone cable. This was a minor hassle that took about half an hour.

More later.
