The problem is, on a series 5 Roamio (I did not try this on the Series 4) you can't manually stop a recording if the TiVo network is down, bummer, and you can't use OD, Netflix, or program your TiVo, except for you in home network your TiVo is like one without any service. This means if TiVo someday went away, to keep using your TiVo would require more than just a program guide hack, the TiVo is now tethered very closely to the TiVo servers.
