Hi,

I am thinking about getting a Tivo, but it would have to use wired
Ethernet. It appears that Tivo supports the concept of a
USB-to-Ethernet adapter, but which ones will work with Tivo for sure?

TIA,
Dan

Hmm, There seems to be an error on the page. I have a 240-series
unit, and I found this paragraph a bit confusing:
"The following wireless network adapters are compatible with all TiVo
Series2 DVRs except for DVRs with a 15-digit TiVo service number,
beginning with 110, 130, or 140. If the 15-digit TiVo service number
on your DVR begins with 110, 130, or 140, view ALL wireless adapters."

Then I realized that both sentences refer to the SAME service
numbers..

Just curious - but you know the RTV supports fewer networking features
than TiVo now, and is no longer being developed, right?

Both TiVo and RTV now support transferring shows to/from a PC,
multi-room viewing (sharing between units in a home), and web based
scheduling.

TiVo also supports music playback and photo viewing, Home Media Engine
(an API for 3rd party developers with a number of cool applications
already out there, the best being Galleon), and they're getting ready
to rollout broadband content delivery.

Frankly I think the other TiVo feature, like the entire scheduling
system, beats the pants off RTV's system.

So what swayed you to buy RTV?
