    I totally agree! I tried the Prime solution, with a Plex Pass for the Plex DVR and a few Rokus for the TVs. It worked but failed the WAF (wife approval factor). I found a deal on a Roamio Plus with lifetime and gave it a shot. Received the all important WAF so I picked up a Mini and returned my Comcast equipment yesterday. :) I'm looking at about 15 months to break even. Then today I read the story about the Comcast vs. Tivo lawsuit and am really glad I didn't go with the X1 system.

    P.S. With the cost of my HDHR Prime, Plex server, the Plex pass, and Rokus, I have already spent about as much as my Tivo setup. So in the end it wasn't all that cheap and still didn't get the WAF. Luckily I can sell some of that stuff on eBay and recoup a bit.

    Don't be in too much of a hurry to sell-off all your Rokus. You may find you need them to supplement the streaming apps available to TiVos.
