It seems that this experience has added a whole new boatload of people to either join, or express they are part of, the "Whatever it takes to keep TiVo in business, it's OK with me" crowd. That only pushes me further away from being a TiVo owner/user, who has convinced friends and family to use TiVo, and has put in a lot of effort to keep them with TiVo. I'm already pushed beyond the point of continuing on to always be the first level of tech support for those I've convinced should buy the product and pay for the service. Let them all get cable-provided DVRs. Then I'm off the hook, and I don't get blamed for it if somebody misses an episode, or the last 10 minutes, of their favorite soap opera. I'm done with that! It's not worth it. Maybe that will help make me be a more pleasant person, once I'm off the hook. Shame on TiVo for focusing on litigation in the youth of, and missing what should have been the prime of, the Premiere, by years! Shame on TiVo for stealthily slinging these cloud-hybrid Roamios, without giving us the info we needed to make an informed buying decision! Shame on TiVo for sticking steadfastly to their policy of denying that TiVo service outages are ever their issue, instead making us reboot everything three times, and reconfigure our whole network, then blaming anything non-TiVo they can, until there's no way around denying it any more. The truth is out there. The cat is out of the bag. How much more do those who have gone to the Roamio side, still not know, because it still hasn't been exposed, isn't out of the bag, and isn't out there? I'm exhausted. Not from anything other than the conflict I feel over bailing out of giving business to the very company the holds all the important patents. Maybe (I'm only saying maybe), we should let TiVo die. Their patents will be bought by other companies, and licensed to others, who will then become better companies. That sounds like the birth of true competition in the DVR market, finally. Maybe I'm just too exhausted, and too conflicted, to see anything but the better future I was hoping the Roamio would bring for TiVo and for me, as being anything more than an elaborate, deliberate, illusion.
