There are a few features missing as of Oct-2013 which I hope will be delivered in time. Out-of-home streaming just hit iOS, which is a great feature and replaces my Slingbox. We are a mixed Android and iOS family, though, so I'm still waiting for TiVo to roll out Android streaming support. The other big one for me would be Amazon Prime video support. Currently you can buy Amazon videos through a fairly ancient interface, but several of the programs I watch are Amazon Prime and I have to switch to my Xbox to watch. HBO Go would also be a great addition. And in my Comcast area they still haven't rolled out VOD support for TiVo, for which I blame Comcast, not TiVo.
In addition, I have one TiVo Mini and plan on adding more. While the Mini itself is cheap, it does require additional service. If you look at the Mini as the $250 box it really is (with lifetime service) I still think it is a good deal compared to what cable companies are charging for extra outlets and boxes these days. I HATE being under the cable company's thumb, and these devices allow me to purchase one connection from Comcast while maintaining my own equipment and network. I'm not saying TiVo is cheaper in the long run for everyone, but I think it will come close for me and the experience is so very superior.
This is close to being my all in one viewing hub (only missing Amazon Prime, VOD, and DVD VOB support). As it stands it gets about 98% of my viewing time, which is about 50% more than I can say for any previous device. Bravo guys, keep up the good work!
I had a couple of issues getting the CableCard to work properly, but that was a Comcast issue. The MoCA network took a bit to get going and the Mini's needed a couple of TiVo check-ins and resets to work correctly.
Once everything is in, it makes TV watching easy and fun. I've recorded over 20 HD shows and I'm only 2% full. That would be close to 90% on the Comcast DVR.
The remote is great, I just wish all the remotes have the same layout. I may buy two Roamio remotes for all the sets.
The best feeling was turning in ALL my Comcast equipment (2 HD DVRs and 1 HD STB). Comcast will give you the first CableCard for free and charge a minimal fee for additional ones. Since I have two TiVo Mini's and one Roamio Pro, I only need one.
At $525 with a $499 lifetime subscription, the cost ratio is in favor of the Pro. I know you can upgrade the HD, but didn't want to go through all the trouble.
Also, make sure you have a Wired or MoCA connection. The built-in WiFi adapter is nice, but won't perform well with the Mini's and Out of Home access.
Also, one note: Content providers (Showtime and HBO) do not allow for out-of-home watching or downloading of content. I wanted to watch House of Lies on my iPad and no dice. This is a big issue for me and wish I knew before....not that it would have changed anything, it's still many times better than any other DVR.
