    tivo series 6 and te3 is the end

    i've enjoyed tivo since series1. ive upgraded them with ethernet and wifi before those were built in. ive enjoyed it up until early 2020 - no more cable card, no more cable, i stream now to roku and still run pytivo (upgraded to python3 by itsayellow). i am done with tivo due to te4 (tivo experience four / hydra). tivo ruined the user interface with te4/hydra. ive owned series1, series2, series3, series3 thx, roamio and bolt+vox.

    so now i have a bolt+vox and when that dies that will be the end of tivo. it was an impressive run up to about 2017. after that time tivo has become a burned out shell husk empty company with nothing to offer and it has been sold to nasty people.

    ive never seen a company burn so much good will as tivo. sad.

    Mark Shuttleworth is a toxic destroyer

    upstart - junk
    mir - stupid
    juju - stinks
    openstack from canonical repos - brokenstack, broken beyond belief
    Ubuntu LTS - 12.04 has had THREE kernels, 3.2, 3.5, 3.8. And to top it off, not bringing in 3.10, the actually decent one of the bunch.

    Mark is a dolt, a destroyer, a fragmenter and a scum.
