    What happened to your box? What store did you go to?

    I do not blame you since the Spectrum Guide equiped world boxes should have never been released to the public and in addition the 2 tuner DVR's are not enough since a lot of shows can run at the same time. If my 6 tuner DVR dies and I can not get another one from a store I would go back to using a Tivo again before I would ever use a Spectrum Guide equipped world box.

    my world box could not reformat or what ever it's doing when it has that line going across it boot up modeMan Surprised. i just brought both boxes back and got a tuning adaptor and a cable card for my tivo bolt instead. i will say the tivos are the best cable box out there
