One of the problems with the “premiere”  Tivo Premiere — the spinning green wheel of death. The Tivo freezes up, you pull the plug to do a hard reboot, and then wait 10 mins for it to start up again. People have called the Tivo Premiere the Windows Vista of DVRs, and I would agree with that assessment. It’s even more ironic that Vista features a similar green spinning wheel while it’s thinking or an app is freezing.

Sigh. I could really use a firmware update right about now.
