Screw TiVo. Called to verify a tsn was lifetime, twice before ordering a used unit from eBay. Got it, called to activate and they said sorry it's a monthly unit. They even had the conversation and refused to honor it. Never again.

Skipping ads is a huge part of it for me.

Also, using the functions of fast forward/rewind/slow motion, etc. are super smooth on Tivo compared to cable.

I record a lot of live sports so that is key for me. I can often view a game in a fraction of the time using Tivo. I can also use slow motion to replay disputed calls or exceptional plays.

The ebay seller was good about it and I sent back for a refund, it just amazed me that they were not willing to own up to their mistake. Escalation told me they'd call back with some kind of concession, but he said it would not be lifetime activation. Oh well, HDHomeRUN and Plex work just fine.

That stinks man. Can't you file a dispute with Paypal/Ebay if it was sold as having Lifetime?

Fire tv recast and a fire stick. Way cheaper and much easier to use.

I have to think the Recast is becoming a serious competitor to the OTA Tivos. The free 14 day guide is a big factor, plus the cheaper initial cost.


BTW, Best Buy currently has the 2-tuner Recast for $129 ($100 off) and the 4-tuner for $179 ($100 off).

Very casual TV watcher. I'm tempted to cash out my entire TiVo system and go for the recast as prices drop. I love the TiVo but so rarely use it, can fetch good money and go for one of these cheap Amazon boxes. Only concern is if it has their nasty spyware microphones embedded, not a fan.

I'd consider upgrading if they still had a model that did cable and OTA like my Roamio. I'm using my cable less and less, and it'd be nice to still use the equipment for OTA if I drop cable.

You can still get decent money if it will do OTA. Cable only Tivo prices have dropped like a rock.

I just switched from Tivo Roamio OTA to Recast/FireTV. Honestly their disappointing marketing email that the OP posted (showed up a few days ago in my inbox) prompted me to see what other deals might be out there, which made me aware of Amazon Recast (not well advertised).

Very happy with the new interface, spouse and other users pleased as well. Not quite as smooth as Tivo for OTA television watching, but significantly better UI otherwise and better integration with streaming services.

No real complaints other than 'surfing' between OTA channels has a slightly larger delay but barely noticeable and given we rarely sit there and channel surf anymore, is a non-issue.

Not even a deal. I paid way less than this a few months back... Skip this and wait for the the next one.

Maybe the original owner of the lifetime service transferred it to another TiVo at some point between when you first checked, and when you tried to activate it? They let me transfer once.
