Update: Day three and I am still unable to register this box under my TiVo account. TiVo support says it might be "a couple more days".
2nd Update: This TiVo box was finally transferred from Amazon to my TiVo account. I now have full access to TiVo features through the web and mobile app. Again, this is a great product, but the registration process was unbelievably bad. I hope this means they finally worked out the kinks so no one else will have to go through the same process.
We then purchased the TIVO BOLT and just love ALL its features. Easy, easy, easy! From the very easy setup to the use of the wonderfully WHITE** remote, the interface is great! We have paired the sleek and very intuitive remote and it will do almost* everything we need. We printed the remote guide and it is very easy to follow. HD recordings are fantastic and fill our entire 40" screen. Even the old B&W shows look great!
*On the Tivo remote, it's an easy click on Input button to get to ROKU and then we have to use the ROKU remote. No biggie.
Including our initial outlay for the antenna and Tivo device, the Tivo subscription (saved $30 by paying 1 year) and the continuing charge for 50/50 Internet, we estimated we will save at least $1600 per year by dropping FIOS.
**Our senior eyes LOVE the white!!!!!
The first OTA DVR I bought for them was Dish's DTVPal, which at the time was cheap at $250. It crashed almost daily, and consumed a lot of power even in "off" mode. Something like 39 watts in off mode compared to 40 watts in on mode. It used a time-based recording scheme and downloaded 2 weeks of limited program info OTA. Still, it was one of the best dual tuner DVRs at the time.
Next I bought the Channel Master DVR+ for about $180. It's extremely stable, but still uses time-based recordings with program guides downloaded 2 weeks in advance. The device uses much less power, and next to nothing when "off". It too has 2 tuners. The downside is that managing recordings is awkward, and oldest shows aren't automatically deleted to make room for scheduled recordings. This requires manual housecleaning. Also the maximum FF or RW is far too slow.
Finally, I bought the best DVR out there, the TiVo. It was on super sale with lifetime programming. This thing does everything well and has name-based recording. It has Netflix and Plex built in and easy to access, appearing seamlessly. Searching for something will look not only in the TV guide, but on all other sources. A neat feature records programs you might want to watch if there is space available, and it does a pretty good job of finding stuff likely to interest you. The FF and RW intelligence is the best, and TiVo has a patent on it. Even better is that some shows can have commercials perfectly skipped at the press of a button.
If you watch a lot of OTA TV, it makes sense to spend the extra cash to buy the best DVR. It will save you hours of time skipping commercials, and generally just do everything better than anything else out there.
