I have Media Com. Ya first experience with TIVO since my owning an actual TIVO box days. ATT Uverse is the BEST I’ve ever had. Mediacom sucks just because they don’t do the receivers for other rooms that don’t have to be plugged into cable (WiFi) and the cable isn’t where I want the TV in one room. I may now have holes in our walls from trying to feed it through the other day. Somehow it was unsuccessful. Sigh.
I have RCN and actually kinda love them (and not just because I haven’t lost my TiVo bloop-bloop). It’s basically the longest relationship I’ve ever been in, but it’s getting harder and harder to keep my rates down. So we may break up next fall, but we’ve had a good run if we do!
We had RCN with their rented Tivo when we lived in DC. I agree that they have very good service-they’ve usually entered markets as a competitor to the main cable company so don’t have the same f*ck you attitude.
We have FIOS now and they’re pretty good, we had to buy a retail Tivo and set it up with Cablecards and whatnot.
