Out of the Blue

Would you believe it if I told you that our twice replaced TiVo is already dead again? I know, I have a hard time believing it myself. It's actually not a TiVo, but a DirecTV-branded DVR, but whatever you call it, it's a door-stop now. I think I'd have given up on them by now were it not for DTV's incredibly nice customer service people, which should serve as a lesson to other companies. Outsourcing may save money in the short-term, but getting the detached sort of support offered a generic overseas call center offers would surely have sent me into the arms of cable TV by now.
