There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Note below, I went from an enthusiastic 5 stars to an annoyed 1 star due to their new advertising platform, showing a short ad before every recorded show. This has started now, and is annoying, but at the moment the ads are at least very short. However, the reason for my return to 4 stars is that if you complain to them enough, they can actually disable this 'service' on your device, you just need to be persistent in your complaints. They still lose a star for the whole concept and for making it so annoying to opt out, but TiVo really still is an amazingly well designed device!
(update) You will note below that this was a glowingly positive review, but I have now given only 1 star. Everything I say below remains true, but only a couple of months after my happy reunion with TiVo they have now announced they will be rolling out a new advertising 'service' which will be forced on all users. Any time you play back a recorded video you will first see a TiVo provided advertisement. They point out "but you can skip it!". Why they believe this will be acceptable for a product where one of the key features is automatically skipping all of the network provided advertising in the shows is hard to understand. ie - we let you skip over all of the network ads, but you'll have to watch or manually skip ours! A) I am paying you guys a suspiciously high monthly service fee, and you aren't even providing content, just schedules, and now you want to add your own ads too!?!? B) seems like spitting in the face of the networks who live off ad revenue (don't get me wrong I still want to skip their ads too). I haven't yet decided to cancel my service when they roll this out, but I am really angry and disappointed. Time to start researching other options again :^( !!!
I had a cable TV TiVO back when the company first formed, and before the cable companies offered DVRs. It was one of the best-designed devices I had ever used at that time, and when I had to drop it in favor of a cable-provided box, I was really sad. The big point about TiVO is that they really got the user interface design right, and that fact has persisted over the last decade. Everything is completely intuitive, and works as you'd expect. The remote (which isn't IR so you don't need line-of-sight) is a joy to use, with the most needed buttons located in the easiest to reach places. When I became a cord-cutter, I started with a Tablo, which has a slightly lower monthly subscription, was a bit less expensive, and offered a nice streaming app for my AppleTV. Unfortunately it was very painful to use, with frequent interface glitches, rebooting due to overheating, and other problems. Finally I saw that TiVO had embraced the cord-cutters and decided to take the plunge with the Bold. Very happy I did. While you still have to pay a monthly fee (or opt for a large one-time payment) for guide services, it's quite comprehensive, including the mass of digital subchannels. While I have other boxes for apps, and was skeptical about their integration of Netflix, Hulu, etc., it actually works amazingly well. When you record a show, it will show you complete info about all of seasons of back episodes of basically any show, going all the way back to the 50's and 60's. If the shows are available via streaming, it will even offer you that option, directly from the episode that you recorded. It's a lot like the integration apple promised with their "TV" app, but in this case it actually works seamlessly. I've noticed a few comments about hard drive failures, and these are probably accurate (though I haven't had one myself). TiVO records up to 4 channels at a time, and is pretty aggressive about recording stuff all the time. This is hard on hard drives, and eventually they tend to fail. This problem existed with the original TiVO's as well, though I think my first one lasted ~3 years before having any issues. On the bright side, if you are even a little handy, swapping out hard drives is generally pretty easy and seamless if necessary. Anyway, I couldn't be more happy that I switched!!!
We liked the interaction, so we bought a new one for $149 and called Customer Service to transfer our $267 All In channel guide to the new box. They refused. They offered to sell us a refurbished unit for $200 and then they would transfer the channel guide. If you’ve read any reviews about the refurb’ed systems, you know they tend to be garbage very quickly. Customer Service, based in India was barely understandable and they absolutely refused to do anything for us despite the fact the Tivo box had failed prematurely.
To add insult to injury, the hard drive is encrypted so you can’t even transfer your saved shows to a flash drive. Oh no. Instead, they want to sell you a special device that will allow you to access those shows. In our opinion, Tivo has exceptionally greedy management, extremely poor quality and hideous customer service. We will NOT ever buy Tivo again.
That being said, the recordings are great. You can set it to record a single show or a series. The menu is a lot like cable TV in that the grid displays all the programs by channels and notes if they are new. There are options to display all the channels in your channel list (like NBC and the local subchannels such as Grit, Bounce, MeTV, etc.) or favorites you select can be displayed alone.
Results have been very good for recording my favorite programs, which was my purpose for this purchase - getting rid of cable and saving money while still enjoying the time-shift recordings of TV shows. Many shows also have the skip option which is awesome for not having to wade through commercials. For programs without the skip function it's easy to fast-forward through the ads, just like I did with cable.
I'm very happy with this box, except for one simple thing. It has the Amazon app and I am a Prime Member, but the app will not play the movies - the screen just goes black. I still have my Fire Stick to watch Prime, but it would have been nice if this worked. Thus, the 4-star rating instead of 5.
I do recommend this TiVo box. It's great for saving on the price of cable. Just be sure you can get a good TV signal BEFORE getting this. Otherwise you may be very disappointed at the channels you can actually receive and watch.

I am sure it works well in the States so do not like to give only one star but as it did not work in Canada I could not say how good a product it is.
