I'm considering switching my elderly mother from DirecTV to Time Warner, but the Navigator UI is horrible - I had DTV and switched back because of how awful it is.
My question is, would CableCard + Tuning Adapter + TiVo be stable/problem free enough for my mother? She has zero interest in doing any sort of regular troubleshooting and just wants things to work.
My friend in LA has TWC + CableCard and bitched that it took like 3-4 cards before he got one that worked, they kept mailing him bum cards. I'm hoping that since her house has never had cable service and they'll need to install outlets, run a line from the street, etc.. that the technician will do the install and they won't mail a cablecard kit, etc.
I've also read about the suggestion issue w/the TiVo, but we've never used TiVo so I don't know that I would miss it
I just can't stand the DVR playback interface and the channel guide on Navigator.
