Installation in Tulsa was quite a project. No one local was familiar with the offer. I finally was passed to a tech in Phoenix who sent me a Tuning Adapter and Cable Card. I installed per the enclosed instructions and called for activation. After many calls and failed attempts, Cox sent a Contracted Serviceman who was familiar with TIVO. He eliminated the Tuning Adapter and all worked !! I am only missing one channel without the TA; CW in HD.
I love it ! Much better than Contour. Great Tivo customer service The commercial skip is great !!
After considering what we really watch and finding a reasonable compromise with channel lineups with another provider, I started looking at DVR options. I have heard over the years from people who had Tivo's and they liked them so as a test acquired a Roamio OTA for almost nothing on Ebay and tried out the DVR service as a test as well to see if OTA might work for us. As it turned out, OTA didn't cover the channels we watched but the DVR service was great. After the test, I decided to go with a Bolt/Cablecard combo and a reasonable channel lineup from another provider and its the best thing I have ever done. We do a lot of time-shifting with recording and it does very well except if you miss a show for recording, you don't have On Demand to pickup the missed show unless you go with Hulu or somebody like that. Not a big for me.
Bottom line, I am sold on Tivo service for the DVR and in the future my strategy will be to just jump back and forth with the cable companies based on the best promo price when its time to switch. Also, beats having to re-learn a DVR over and over.
For now, my new cable service will cost about 25 bucks less then my previous bill (which was a promo price) which should just about pay for my Tivo service and box if I amortize over a year and a half or so. Channel wise, its a wash...lost a couple but picked up a couple as well. Very satisfied so far...
