I was at best buy looking at the Tivo there, and I almost got one. I know I want one, but they have a Tivo/DVD burner combo now (actually 3 or more) for between 500 and 600 bucks, and they come with lifetime basic Tivo service. But I want to know, what's the difference between basic Tivo and Tivo plus, and can I burn a DVD from the Tivo'ed shows. And how much more is the Tivo plus.. they also had a DVD burner with DVR, but it was not Tivo.. so how does that work? Do all the shows and movies on my DirecTV have a VCRPlus code? I think it used that to program it.. And none of the Best buy people felt like making a sale today so I just kept standing there like a retard. So I wandered off and bought the new Leisure Suit Larry game (oh the years and years I have spent playing the LSLarry dynasty of games.. god I loved those), and some more horror movies.. (The Guyver, Evil Dead II, Evil Dead special edition, some others I just forgot.. A collection of Film Noir movies as a gift., House & House II, They Live( holy mackerel my favorite movie), Clerks special edition, ). Then I went to CompUSA and bought the new Sly Cooper playstation game and a book for Thief: deadly shadows so I can finally actually finish the endless labyrinth level. Thennn I went to Barnes and Noble and bought 200 bucks worth of books (read: 5 or 6) for my family for christmas. I'm stocking up early this year. I've gotten almost all the gifts for everyone already; It's costing a lot because I'm buying most of them at Barnes&Noble and Best buy, but it beats buying them at Walgreens and Walmart the night before, doesn't it?
