Best Thing to Happen to TV, but...

 

TiVo is easy to use and works great with some minor tweaking. The biggest draw back is the shows TiVo "recommends for you. After a month of deleting shows we have no interest in and giving them thumbs down reviews, TiVo still auto records the most...

No other option for recording.

 

When our cable company started scrambling all of their signals and required a DTA, TIVO was the only solution for recording programs. It does require a subscription to the TIVO service. Works well but you need to tweak it for your programming and...

Really good DVR

 

I love TiVo and this box is one of its best. I love that it's both OTA and cable ready (even the higher price ones don't have OTA). While 4 tuners are good six should be standard which even my cable DVR now has. It is fast and productive but the 500gb...

TiVos: Change your experience of Cable/TV

 

The TiVo Roamio is TiVo's newest box and raises the ante on watching what you want to watch easily and abundantly. TiVo's suggestions record what you might forget to schedule and What's On scans all of the movies and shows that are currently playing to...

replacement for TiVo Premiere 4

 

We bought the TiVo Roamio to replace our Premiere 4. It had many more features, but was not a intuitive as the Premiere 4 or the Xfinity DVR. My wife had enough problems using Roamio that she sent the DVR back.

Good for the basic functionality

 

We've owned TiVos since they came about in the late 1990s. They're great for what they are - a DVR, and I recommend them (though they have a monopoly on the market, so it's not like you have a choice). They're trying to add on other features, which...

Tivo works as advertised

 

Aftrt reviewing several DVR products to get away from cable decided on tivo. It works as advertised but still not happy with the $14.99 per month for tivo subscription and activation. Also, Tivo comes with no directions to help you learn which menu...
