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.
