I finally got around to calling TiVo about these boxes tonight (see link below) – 20 minutes too late to talk to a human.
But the TiVo computerized phone attendant is very smart. And accommodating.
Once I realized they were “closed”, and in the middle of the computer giving me options, I said, “Goodbye”.
The TiVo phone attendant said, “I think I heard you say goodbye. Are you ready to leave us?” VERY cool! It knew I wanted to leave, it shut up, thanked me, and got out of my way!
Sure, I could have just hung up – but that would have been a rude thing to do to such a polite computer!
