Just got my Roamio Plus today and the 4 TB WeaKnees drive arrives tomorrow. I left TiVo soon after the full OTA HD switch and the coming of the original Ceton InfiniTV 4 PCIe card to pursue the HTPC route and stop paying monthly TiVo fees. It's had its ups and downs living in the Media Center world over the years and I've always loved the ease of expandable storage and moving things around etc. That being said the writing was on the wall with Microsoft making people pay for WMC in Windows 8 as an add-on and no more updating it and I have had some hardware issues etc with the complexity that comes with a P.C. setup from time to time. Honestly though, I'm just tired of tinkering and having to support any P.C. in the house. Heck I even switched to being an all Apple iDevice and Mac household in the past year after having built my own P.C.'s for 2 decades, because these days I want stuff that 99.99% of the time just works. Tired of having to f around with crap here and there, just getting too old for it. Does the Apple and TiVo ecosystem cost more, sure, but to me the peace of mind is worth it and both have always been slick. So, after very little discussion with the wife, she's never liked WMC and missed TiVo, we're coming back to TiVo. Went ahead and plunked down the cash for lifetime on the Roamio, so I don't have to be perturbed about seeing that fee every month and now that I can have 6 tuners in one box without having to have multiple TiVo's that fill our needs it just fits. I still think the price of the TiVo Mini is a bit of a ripoff with lifetime for bedroom watching, but I guess it isn't really more than an Xbox 4GB slim as an MCE extender, and I'm not really a gamer, so that's all those were ever used for anyway. So, guess you guys will be seeing me around. Might have a few questions or two from time to time after being away so long.
