Is there a specific model for the Cable Card version? All i see is Vox 500gb and Vox 1tb. I need to replace my Window Media Center PC as i am no longer receiving guide updates. This would be a great value bundled with the lifetime package.
Slightly OT, but no need to replace MC just for the guide, there are very good alternatives available.

I am using EPG123 [garyan2.net] - works great just like the MCE guide with a few nice improvements, seems almost like what would have been a MS update to the guide.

Software itself is free, but cost is $25/year for the data provider, well worth it in my opinion. You can get data free to 10 days or something to test it.

I've had my bolt 500gb (which can support cable or it's) for 4 years. Along with the tivo minis this has saved me a boatload on cable equipment rental fees (important for those that still subscribe to cable). It also is able to play 4k broadcasts (I was able to watch Fox Thursday NFL games in 4k HDR). They have even stated they are working on an atsc 3.0 tuner add-on I think. It's got the best interface of any device so far and people were saying cable is dead 4 years ago and yet it's still around. I love mine and don't regret getting it one bit. No reliability issues on the bolt so far.

i know there are options but I hate that it takes effort--first world problems, i know. At this point of my life, i feel more comfortable throwing money at problems just to make them go away.

But you're right, maybe I should do this.

thanks internet stranger, you've just inspired me to suck it up and save a few bucks.

By the time you save any money. The tivo's will malfunction. Not even worth it.
This is probably the least valid criticism of Tivo that anyone has ever stated. The hardware lasts nearly forever. If anything ever does die, it is most likely the hard drive, which is a simple replacement.

Now, debating the usefulness of a DVR in this day-and-age, or Tivo's never ending attempts to clutter the UI and add useless advertising, would be much better critiques.

chiming in here: this is a great deal. i bought a bolt 4? years ago. I did the calculation and break even was around 2.7 years with all in at 400 and i put a larger hard drive in mine (very doable). so i ended up saving money. the experience is amazing. once you use it you get hooked (im not on hydra if thats still happening). my family is on cable due to mostly having kids and the price of all streaming services would actually be more for what we get. our family members who used our system also converted because of the experience.

you have it wrong if you think this ties you into anything, if you have options for cable in your area this gives you freedom to jump between providers and get their promotional discounts over and over every 2-4 years. you keep all your recordings and hardware when you switch.

you also can turn this into OTA if you cut

Tivo ?why waste any money on them?
tuners
NO atsc 3.0 and cable card is dying and people are fleeing cable.

Makes no sense throwing money away.
Some people still need cable to see local sports. As such, this is a great way to remove all the expensive equipment charges from the cable company and upgrade to a car superior and easy to use box. I've had my premier for 10 years and saved ~$75 a month in DVR charges and equipment fees. Do the math, that's $9,000 worth of savings with about $750 in service and equipment investment.

I personally use Plex for OTA but if I had to do it all over again I would probably go with Recast.
I'm interested in hearing your experience with Plex and why you would move away from it.

I have a Roamio OTA w/ 3TB WD Purple and 2 Minis. It's been pretty stable, but I'm looking to offload them while they still sell for a good price and move to a headless option, especially in preparation for ATSC 3.0 (I'm in a first wave rollout market). I know there's Plex and Emby, but I've seen detractors of both. Thinking about trying out Jellyfin and see how that does.

I have been a tivo user since 2002 but I will no longer support them as of late you get ads in the channel listing and before each recorded show an ad for some tivo+ stuff that is WAY louder than the recorded show you're about to watch. I complained about it on FB and was told by others you can contact them to remove those things, so I did and Tivo told me No. I had to file a complaint with the BBB to get them to even listen to me and now I am no longer seeing those ads. I don't know why everyone else was getting tivo to remove them but a loyal customer gets the shaft. There are tons of DVRs out there now I will not buy another Tivo. I'll use the current one I have (Romaio) and when that dies or they add tons more commercials/ads (that originally was why you bought the Tivo was to avoid) then I am done. I don't know what's next but it won't be Tivo.

When Charter bought Time Warner they put an end to whole house DVR capability, and issued only 2 tuner DVRs to customers. The only way many people had to watch what they had recorded in another room was with Tivo or go to Direct TV etc.

The older Roamios could be modified with a cheap cable card bracket. My brother bought an OTA Roamio from Tivo when they were on sale for $199 (believe Tivo wase selling the last of them) and picked 2 minis and a cable card bracket off ebay, and he was back in business for less that $400. Saved a bunch on cable fees and it paid for itself very quickly.

There's a market for the Mini if you do eBay or Craigslist.

Those are both cable models. Unless it says OTA it is a cable model.

Go to eBay and look at completed listings. $50-$80 for the Mini. Lifetime Roamios seem to be going for $200 +/- $50 depending on which Roamio.

Examples:
