Be honest, with recent changes, would you return a TiVo still within return period?

    No way, my only other dvr option for cable is terrible. My cable company Charter is about to release a new worldbox 2.0 that still can't even compete with my Roamio. 4 tuners, no WH capable. 1TB drive. The only app it will have is netflix.

    Nope, not at all, wife loves the TiVo after ditching the x1 18mo ago.
    She would prefer the media center and extenders came back,but this is next best thing.
    I love how open TiVo is with development if you just ask....

    This. Skipmode is the primary reason I use TiVo and it’s completely worth it to me. After all, it’s all about personal preference. Now, if they get rid of skipmode, then I may have a different answer.

    As for TOS, what TiVo should do at end of life, is offer a transfer of lifetime to a new unit, even if it’s at a substantially reduced price. I’d be surprised if they don’t do that anyway. Also, it seems to me that TiVo is now asking for a repeat of the issue they created with the original lifetime. I was one of those users and due to their failure to adequately describe the TOS they offered all original users the ability for a one-time transfer of lifetime service (which I did, to a Bolt+). If they stop supporting those units, it seems to me that it’s a lawsuit waiting to happen and so it wouldn’t surprise me if TiVo once again offers the ability to transfer the lifetime to a new box.

    TiVo “bought” a lot of good will from me when my Roamio got skipmode. They’d have been in their rights to keep it a Bolt only feature, or charge to enable it on older machines.
