I have one for “just in case” purposes. It maybe gets used once or twice a year.

I actually got my first TiVo back in 1997 when they first came out.  I don’t think I have used a VCR for anything since then.  In fact it once created a crisis when I had to watch a vcr tape for work and realized I had no active VCR to view it on.  I did manage to dig one out of storage and hook it up.

My mom still uses her VCR all the time - she hasn’t learned how to program it either. I still use mine as well. I like tapes… they have some sort of nostalgia attached to them. Also, I can get lots of cheesey horror movies for really cheap on video… hehe.

I’ve never checked, but aren’t TIVOs really expensive? I always thought that because the only people I knew that had them were celebrities.

I still use my VCR to tape an occassional television show if I know I won’t be home to watch it.  Doesn’t TiVo have a monthly fee attached to it? That’s why I like my VCR…one purchase price and that’s that.

Well, you do have to buy new tapes though…

I have one of those combo DVD/VCR’s now, I use both side pretty much equally…
