    TiVo and DVRs in general are slowly dying

    TiVo lately has been disgraceful (I say this as a TiVo user for many years). They no longer even sell a 3TB TiVo - just ones with smaller capacity. If my TiVo Roamio dies, I'm screwed. The TiVo iPad remote app went from being very good with occasional bugs to close to unusable. Gone is the one...

    HD Tivo image quality on 4K television set

    We've had our Tivo Roamio Plus since 2015, watching it on an HD DLP TV, and all was well. Recently we upgraded the TV to a 4K model, the new Sanyo FW65R70F. On the new TV, streamed HD content upscaled to 4K looks great, and blu-ray disks in our old blu-ray player (we still don't have a 4K disk...

    TiVo planning to add pre-roll ads before DVR playback

    This is from late September, but I just learned about it. This is a great way to get to me toss my TiVo in the trash and move to streaming 100%. I'm hoping this doesn't hit lifetime sub boxes. :( https://zatznotfunny.com/2019-09/tivo-preroll-ads/

    TiVo HDMI Port Question -- What Could Possibly Explain This?

    I got a new TiVo Bolt, model # TCD849000VO. My TV, a Samsung PNC50C7000, has 4 HDMI inputs. I plugged the TiVo into HDMI 4 and it worked great. I then unplugged the TiVo and moved it to the shelf where it's going to normally be. I plugged it into HDMI 1 and got a picture that was mostly red...

    Looking to "cut the cord" Tivo a good option?

    I'm seriously thinking about dropping satellite TV. I was looking at Comcast, but the hidden fees for local and sports programming along with their equipment fees make it hard to justify the price. I'm thinking of installing an antenna in the attic for local tv, and then getting a streaming...

    iPad apps - TiVO, NYTimes...etc that go from native to web apps, iOS/Android or at a minimum iPhone

    Just went to my iPad TiVO app to record the Dodgers - Brewers game (I don’t even know where my TiVo remote is, I strictly use my iPad for recording/playback/remote to watch on TV)...and — clearly totally new, demands username/passwords, pretty much acts like a website. This type of iPad app...
