More expensive than previous deals.
This is the 1TB HDD version, not the 500GB version. There hasn't been a posted sale on the 1TB version since last August from bestbuy for $190.

Both models are listed on the OP. Both models with sales prices higher than previous deals. Yes, there were more deals on the 2 tuner models. If you have the AmEx reward point offer, then this is a better deal.
By the way, it was $180, not $190, for the 4 tuners model last August at BB,
not everyone has amex which has yearly fee(s).

I bought the 1tb recast the week of black friday 2019 for $180 from Amazon. This is also a great deal imho. I'm very pleased with my purchase. I use this for my local channels and sling for everything else via multiple firesticks. So far we are very pleased and have no issues.

You can add external storage easily to either model so don't let the amount of storage dictate which one you buy. Also, the 4 tuner description is a little misleading, on the 4 tuner you can only watch 2 tv shows live, u can watch 2 shows and record 2 shows at the same time but you can not watch 3 or 4 shows at the same time. This has never been an issue in my household but it might be for others.

If you don't have the AmEx reward point 20% off offer, there are better deals at bhphotovideo.

https://slickdeals.net/f/13823681-amazon-fire-tv-recast-2-tuner-500gb-dvr-129-4-tuner-1tb-179?v=1

These BHPhotovideo deals match the previous deals with lower prices.

Can you record (3) or even (4) shows at the same time if your only watching (1) live tv show or 0 in the case of (4) recordings going at once?

Thanks,

You can record 3 if your watching 1 or 4 shows if your not watching anything.

Cut the cable now and start saving or wait until prime day to get this maybe $10 cheaper and spend the extra money on cable. Seriously, it's a good product. I went for the 1tb model mostly for the extra tuners/streams in case I might need it. We've been happy with it. Only complaint - I wish it had ROKU support since we have a couple of those laying around.

Does it auto skip commercials? Can you fast forward, with full screen preview, to skip commercials? Can you start watching a recording while it's still recording? Do you have to subscribe to a guide service or is that free? TIA

I was wondering about Roku support and assuming none, given that this is an Amazon product. I've got HDHomeRun tuners driving Plex, and as a household that was loyal to TiVo for 17 years, it's been a really easy transition. This Fire DVR is a self-contained PnP solution though, which is nice if you aren't looking for something to manage and integrate with all of your own media.
