This deal is back for $330 from amazon.

This TIVO works with over the air antenna or if modified it could work with cable companies as well.

No monthly fee because it comes with "lifetime" membership.

Who's customer service are you talking about, Amazon's or TiVo's??

I've had nothing but good experiences with the customer service teams of both companies, and I've been using them both for multiple years...

There customer service is a disaster, I ended up returning mine from the cyber monday deal just because I didn't want to have to deal with them again.

You need this adapter. You can find it on eBay for $30ish.

PCMT-134-02-L-D-RA-02-SL Adapter for a Cable Card


I haven't done it because I don't have cable anymore.

Will love to use one for comcast TV and return the rental DVR box. However, it is going to take 3 years to break even, not factoring the cable card rental cost. If we factor in cable card rental, it is going to take 5-6 years... Just not worth it for this purpose.. Am I missing something?Confused

Cyber Monday deal from tivo was $200 with the lifetime service. I don't remember if it was the same size hard drive or not tho.

edit: it was 500 GB.

I've had mine for a month and I keep finding these stupid bugs that require me to reboot - like once I kept getting "no internet connection" when trying to pull up the guide. Uh... ok. So I go to test the internet connection and it connects just fine, downloads the guide update, everything is good. Click the guide button again and "no internet connection" ... wtf?? Reboot and it was ok.

Then once I try to play a recording and I get a spinning blue circle that never stops spinning. Tried everything, even a reboot, no luck. Gave up after 20 minutes of troubleshooting and it was after callcenter hours. Next day the problem was gone.

I have to say, my experience as a Tivo customer in 2018 is way crappier than when I was a Tivo customer in 1999. That box was solid, always worked, never needed to reboot in 4 years that I had it. Even sold it for more than I bought it for in 2003. I guess the quality of programmers at Tivo has gone downhill since they pioneered the DVR.
