    LOL. Sounds like TiVo. Yeah, I'm hoping I can convince them to go with TiVo as the whole-home DVR and in effect rent back the hardware from me... it would be cheaper for all of us, we can all share a 2 TB hard drive with no problem, and I'll recover some of the cost of the Minis.

    I learned a few months ago that what can be done is if all the equipment is on one account that each service plan can be under different payment methods and people so essentially they can be assigned a box and they'd pay for only their plan. If one doesn't want to pay then it only affects the box assigned to them and not force everyone else to cover that share or have their own boxes stop working.

    But TiVos are a one-time cost, so I'd put all the capital in the first place, and then recover the cost on a monthly basis. There's four of us with a heavily discounted Comcast package, so I'm hoping they'll go for it. I already have the XL4. I'm figuring that an XL4, a couple of Mini's, and a Comcast HD non-DVR box for On Demand on the main TV would work pretty well.

    Sounds ok but don't forget about the Xfinity on demand for TiVo app that should at some point be showing up for your area. Another heads up is that if all the devices are on the same TiVo account they'll be able to see each other and stream and transfer videos to and fro which will take a lot of trust so they don't delete your shows.

    Well they're going to have access to my stuff and we're going to share a DVR either way. If they are deleting my shows, I think I have much bigger problems to worry about than my DVR. XoD will eventually come to this area, as well as DTA on the TiVo side, which combined might let us drop the other box, but it's only $10/mo.

    DTA on the TiVo slide? Not sure what you mean by that. If you are referring the slide remote control that's been discontinued for almost a year now. Would you happen to mean the stream? DTA?
