Great point.... got one.

So the same power supply can be used with the Roamio "basic" (TCD846500), correct?

UPDATE: Guess so based on this: http://www.weaknees.com/tivo-power-supply.php

I wish they didn't force you to subscribe to get your free OTA stations.

subscription is the usual $15 a month for the OTA dvr and probably cheeper is paid for by the year. there is also often a $300 OTA dvr thst goes on sale with lifetime subscription service. both Mini tivo units do not require their own subscription but they must be paired with a TiVo that has a subscription.

$15 a month which is robbery. You can occasionally get these with lifetime sub for $300 total which is a pretty good deal considering you'd be able to sell it in 3 years for $200. They tend to run about 4.5-5 years before a fan, drive or power supply dies. I had one go almost 7 years before both the PS and drive went almost at the same time.

Considering tablo/simple.tv runs about $350-400 with lifetime and both of those companies are nowhere near as big and well funded as Tivo, its a good choice if your tv is co-located with your antenna and streaming to stuff like roku players isn't your bag. Its a lot more reliable than most other options.

if you are looking for one with a subscription youd be better off waiting until tivo runs the $300 deal again with lifetime sub.

So there is no way to just DVR without subscription?

Mine was back ordered too, but shipping today even with Prime 2-Day shipping is taking almost a week to arrive.

so much for 2 day shipping, but what that actually means is that once they ship it you should get it within 2 days. not from when you order it.
