    Be very careful. This is a cable box VCR that also has OTA capabilities. The box tends to lock up from time to time, which also affects any other mini you have connected to it. You have to reboot both boxes to get things corrected. That is the least of your worries. It does not matter it you use the box connected to a cable company, or simply take the content "Over The Air". You will pay the $149.00 yearly price. that is of course unless you want to buy their OTA box only for $200, then you only pay $69.00 a year. Doesn't matter if you downgrade your viewing from cable down to OTA, and are getting less content, you pay $149, and they won't pro-rate or refund the yearly amount either if you stop using it. Overall, so so box, and "Terrible" company. Or think about just getting the OTA only box.

    It's still true that 'TiVo is the worst DVR on the Planet, except for all the others'

    But thanks for stopping by to bash our choice.

    You should know that this site is not affiliated with TiVo at all.

    You have a 30 day return window. Use it and get all your money back, including the yearly fee.

    what is this yearly price you speak of? ;)

    Oh and I went from 54 OTA stations when I lived in Minneapolis to 4 here in Mankato. So I guess if I was on a yearly price I should complain to Tivo for a lower price then since I only need it for 4 stations?

    The thread starter smells of a drive-by posting, as the police say "Nothing to see here move on :D"
