Apropos of nothing, I found a discussion forum thread started in late 2003 by a guy asking how to deal whis wife not deleting Tivo recordings. It spanned fifteen years and 1400 responses and includes a 2019 announcement that they’re getting divorced.February 26, 2019 at 4:28 pm #833822
Maybe he should have posted it in a marital support forum.February 26, 2019 at 4:35 pm #833823February 26, 2019 at 4:37 pm #833827
I once seriously almost ended it after an ex deleted a recording of a show I had been waiting years to play again.February 26, 2019 at 4:43 pm #833828
I had to install a bigger internal hard drive on the Tivo because BOF* kept filling it up with Hallmark Christmas romance movies. It think that she’s planning on leaving me for a handsome small town widower and his adorable moppet.

Being home during the day when husband is at work really helps this for us. I watch the recorded female crap he doesn’t to see while doing work at home during the day then delete them. I watch stuff he will like, for the most part when he is home….unless it is some Sci Fi stuff, then I just nap cutely next to him while he watches.February 26, 2019 at 5:23 pm #833833RangerchicParticipant
I don’t have TIVO but I do have a DVR from the cable company. I actually can’t stand it to be over about 65% full! I start telling everyone that we’ve got to watch the shows so I can erase them! I like to keep it at or below 50%. It’s a quirk of mine…
I don’t think it would be divorce worthy. I didn’t read the entire thread though…to long. But maybe it was one quirk of hers to many?February 26, 2019 at 5:39 pm #833836
I like mine around 50 too because I’ve missed shows back when they didn’t repeat them or have them on demand because it was fully and didn’t record.
I’ve always had a DVR and haven’t had TIVO since they all started doing it. My current cable company actually uses TIVO as their DVR service and I love hearing the little blop blop noises. HeheFebruary 26, 2019 at 6:25 pm #833843
I didn’t read most of the thread but given that the thread went on for FIFTEEN YEARS, it’s possible other issues cropped up.February 26, 2019 at 6:47 pm #833844keybladeMember
Didn’t read it all but it was ridiculous. Thank goodness we didn’t have TIVO, just a DVR and an external hard drive when this issue came up 😉February 26, 2019 at 7:10 pm #833848AngeGuest
My lord there are a lot of people on that thread who had too much time and Tivo knowledge. Thank goodness for Netflix and Stan now, I ended up palming my DVR off to my in laws.February 26, 2019 at 7:34 pm #833852
I call it all TIVO. If it records its TIVO. My stepson makes fun of me saying it ages me.
