How couples survived before TiVo is beyond me! For a base price of $300, you and your hubby can have a TiVo HD Digital Video Recorder of your very own and end those TV watching wars once and for all. With a 160GB hard drive that provides up to 180 hours of recordings time, he can watch his shows, and you can do the same. . . simple as that.
Keep in mind that there's an additional monthly fee for TiVo service.
