Hi Joe,

	The TiVO screenshots I have access to are at: 
http://www.pvrcompare.com/dtimages.html and 

Do you have any references for sites I can look at to see what a TiVO looks 
like ???

One thing I missing from the TiVO recording screen (atleast in the screenshots 
that I can find), is the reference to the recording quality for the show. 
Once I get my Myth box setup, I plan to spend some time looking into 
implementing this. 

Since I'm in Canada and don't have access to a TiVO, any information you could 
provide about one would be great.....
