I'm jealous of your Roamio - tempted to upgrade our P4 - but you're right Brighthouse copy protects so much it's hardly worth it - except for the 2 extra tuners of course! Interesting that they would let you pick up new boxes without a truck roll - and thanks for the warning that a CableCard is included in the "Tuner Pack" if we ever got one of those. CableCards should be interchangeable between Tivo boxes without programming - and we already have two and likely won't ever need more than that. My experience with Brighthouse in FL is not so good - we've lived in 2 houses here since arriving the first of the year (rental and then purchase) both times it took multiple "appointments" to get things running correctly. We got the same tech at first, both times - who hates Tivos. He was also lazy and angry and did sloppy work that needed correcting. This last time all he did was complain that he was losing money because BH pays by the job and our job was too hard and taking him longer than he wanted. Both houses needed some re-wiring - the Tivos were NOT a problem - the tech was.
