Just so everyone is clear:

This Roamio will ONLY record over the air content. It will NOT accept a cable card. This is for cord cutters. If you want to record cable, this is not the box for you.

Also, at the end of Summer, Tivo revamped their pricing structure, and the Roamio OTA box (this one) started to sell without a separate subscription cost. So the bundle of hardware + lifetime service is now the default for this particular box. The only hot deal here is that the price for the box is reasonable:

http://www.techhive.com/article/3...harge.html
TiVo Roamio OTA (refurb) - $199.99, includes "all-in" (formerly known as "Product Lifetime.")

Also Available:
TiVo Roamio Pro - $499.99, includes "all-in"

TiVo Bolt 500 GB (new) - $159.99
TiVo Bolt 500 GB (refurb) - $99.99
TiVo Bolt 1 TB (refurb) - $149.99

"All-In" when purchased with TiVo Bolts - $349.99

I've had a Tivo Roamio for the past year and paid the monthly fee. I just bought this. There is nothing wrong with 1080P especially on devices smaller than my 110" don't fool yourself that once 4K arrives that 1080p will suddenly be painful to watch. OTA stations are NOT going to be 4k for a VERY LONG TIME and even if they start to pop up the government will require that they keep the 720P/1080p signal running for a LONG TIME. You cant cut off people to communications. This has 4-5 maybe more years of life to it and if you don't like it e-bay someone will buy it because of the lifetime service.

I have a Logitech harmony remote and it works with this as there is an IR sensor on the unit.

Upgrading the internal hard drive up to 3TB takes about 20 minutes you will need a few hex or star keys to make it happen but its just like swapping a hard drive on a computer. The data on the internal hard drive will be lost obviously your removing the hard drive but the added space is worth it. I had a 2TB hard drive lying around that's been working great the last year. The menu will guide you through setting up the hard drive. I record a ton of shows with 2TB cant imagine needing more. I have not tried the ESATA but since I have an ESATA dock I will when this arrives just to keep the warranty on it. Once the warranty is over its going internal unless I'm lazy.

Check the device before you order the cable card connector I recall some of these devices had one under the cover.

Streaming to other parts of your house. You need the Mini or Tivo Stream or PC.
You can buy Tivo Mini's for each TV in your house but me personally I got a TIVO STREAM they sell for $60-$80.00 on e-bay or $130.00 on the TiVo site. I use Fire TV devices with the Tivo Beta App and can stream all my recordings to any of these devices. The App is picky just remember to recycle the device before you do your initial setup and it will be fine. When in doubt reboot and I mean that more for the Tivo Stream box than the Fire TV devices. Once connected it works like a champ. I haven't rebooted anything in a year since setup. I do think the Mini's have more functions but all we care about is streaming the recorded content somewhere else.

Ive done the whole PC with HD Homeruns they always need attention they are a pain to control just don't expect to use a PC like a tuner, it sucks more power, noisy unless you invest in good fans, etc etc etc. It just plain sucks.

Its wife friendly meaning it just works great as a tuner/dvr so easy to control the fast forward/slo motion controls are just so buttery smooth that it just makes sense on your main TV.

Commercial Skip - A lot of times you can skip the commercials with the D button.

Searching - This ties into Hulu and Netflix and a few other streaming services too the guide will tell you if its available for OTA recording or if you can watch it through one of your streaming services and which streaming service has what your searching for. No more guessing if a show is on Hulu or Netflix etc.

Two questions
1) Is getting extended warranty better since this is a renewed unit? How is the quality of renewed units purchased from TIVO websites directly?
2) I assume the HD can be swapped for a different one , may be 4 TB? I hear lot of people in other threads having swapped out their HD.

Jinga Jinga Jinga! $200 for a Roamio with lifetime "All-in service plan "????
That's incredible deal! Love my Tivo Roamio and I got a fabulous deal (new) 2 years ago for $300 (lifetime). Their extended warranties are pretty wonky, though...use it once, then it's done. Never heard of a warranty that limited your paid extended warranty for one occurrence.

Nice deal. I already have this, but may get another - just $50 more than the Mini for a second television - with better resale value and never need to worry about wiring the Mini to the OTA

I don't think this included lifetime free subscription. Where do you see that?

I don't. I see under 199.00 30 day free trial.

What is the price with subscription plan?

FYI, supposedly there is a cablecard slot on these that is functioning if you add a bracket. I don't have cable so I haven't tried it out, but if you google around there are tutorials that don't make it sound too overwhelming if your already handy at that sort of thing.

Including "all in" plan shows when you click your cart after adding (at least on mobile). The 30-day trial is essentially Tivos no questions asked return policy

I haven't had TV at home in years, but my (retired) parents watch TV and don't like missing their shows when they go out to run errands. They'll never spend the money on DVR, but my wife and I think they'd love it. I come from a place of knowing very, very little about this. If I buy this, can they just connect it to their existing cable and record their shows? Or would they need to pay any fee to the cable company?

This is for cable cutters who only use an antenna. Hence the OTA, if your parents want cable they will need a different model. (If they had a different model that worked with cabel, I would assume they would need to pay for the cable card to plug into the unit?)

Where did you get the CC bracket?
Also own the Tivo OTA + Mini since last year and want to use it with Comcast.

If only it supports PS Vue, I'd be all over this. Planning on cutting cable soon and have been testing out Apple TV, Roku Premiere+, Fire TV in support with HDHomerun Extend to provide both OTA and "cable" channels without switching inputs.

If Tivo supports Vue, it'd be perfect.
