    Are they worth it? There's two different version of TiVo boxes on the TiVo
    website that my wife and I are looking at and wondering just how good these
    "factory renewed" machines are.

    Also - is it possible (using a digital cable box) to record a program on
    TiVo (let's say Smallville on Thursday nights on CW) and watch a hockey game
    on the NHL Centre Ice package? Often times on Thursday night I have to pick
    between watching Smallville or my hockey game and we'd love to be able to
    use the TiVo to just record Smallville for watching later so I don't miss
    the hockey game.

    Thanks much!

    I am a believer in reconditioned products. If you buy new and it wont work
    you have to send it back and they send a new one. might as well order one
    they know works. just a thought.
