I've had a TiVo HD for many years now (6 or more, at least) and it's been great. Before that I've had TiVos pretty much since their beginning, with a short period of using cable company boxes when we first got HD. The TiVo HD has been great, up until this week when a recording ended up too garbled to watch (the channel was coming in fine), leaving me to suspect the hard drive might finally be dying. Naturally, this happened the day AFTER their latest "upgrade to Roamio and keep your current subscription price" deal ended. My luck. (I'm on the $12.95/month plan. Keeping that is a big reason I haven't upgraded yet.) So, my question: is the Roamio (either the base one or the Plus, I haven't decided which yet) going to be a headache to switch to? I already have a mutli card, though given its age (same as the Tivo as I've never had to replace it) I may find I need a newer one. And the biggest issue: tuning adapters. When I first got this TiVo, the tuning adapter situation was such a pain that after a while I gave up and returned it. We have Bright House, and use their DVRs on the other TVs in the house, so any time I want to record something on an SDV channel, I just use one of those. The setup isn't ideal, but it's worked all right for me. I found that with the TA, the constant reboots made the TiVo impossible to use. Every time the TA rebooted, the TiVo would be locked up on the "tuning adapter detected" screen, waiting for me to hit "OK" on the remote, and until I did so it wouldn't record anything. I missed more recordings than I got because of it, rendering the TiVo basically useless. I figured better to have a reliable TiVo with fewer channels than one that never works. In the years since I gave up on TAs, have they gotten any better? I'm on Tampa area Bright House, if that helps. If I switch to a Roamio with 4 or 6 tuners, it would be nice to be able to get all the channels and stop using the other box as backup. And maybe I'll even be able to add a TiVo Mini to it and get rid of another Bright House DVR. I currently have a Vulkano on my TiVoHD, which I use to watch recordings on my ipad - either in other parts of the house or on the occasional vacation. It's not the best quality streaming, but it works well enough, so I'm not sure I really need the TiVo stream function. (Unless it turns out the Vulkano won't work with a Roamio, which wouldn't surprise me given my luck with electronics.) Anyway, I've read some things both here and on other review sites that make me worry that the Roamio is buggier than my TiVoHD, and that along with the TA issue has me nervous about switching. I don't want to go back to worrying that my shows aren't going to record due to reboots and whatnot. Sorry for being so long-winded. I hope someone has some advice for me. To boil it down: is Roamio a good upgrade from TiVo HD, or is it buggier? Should I do it now before my HD fails, or hold off a bit in case the subscription deal comes back around? And what's going on with Bright House TAs these days? Worth it to try again, or just keep going with CableCard only? Thanks!
