Ahh -- my first diary post. I'm Mike @ BBeR's buddy. Long time listener, first time caller.
I'm a bit frustrated with TiVo and the Center Ice package this year and I'm hoping someone can let me know if they are having the same problems. I'm in OKC and have Cox cable...
I taped the Av’s game last Thursday in order to watch it first thing last Friday morning. I wake up like a kid on Christmas only to find that the game has been deleted from the Now Playing list and it's even gone from the Deleted Items list. I did some digging and now I know why -- the Center Ice games (every one I've checked) have the copy protection built in so the game is deleted at a specified time after the game is over whether you've watched it or not. It seems like the TiVo thinks that the Center Ice channels are pay-per-view channels when we all know they are subscription channels.
Anyone else having this problem? I'd like to have some more information before I call TiVo and complain. I posted on a Tivo message board and someone posted that out in Arizona, he's not had problems.
