Advertisements I have been a DirecTV customer since 1997, but prior to that had Tivos for a number of years. If I recall (may be totally wrong), Tivos were the original DVR box for DirectTV. My current DirecTV configuration consists of a Genie Gen 3 and four Genie Minis. If I were to move to Tivo, I would either pickup Verizon Fios or Xfinity as the program provider. My biggest question (from a hardware standpoint) is how much would it cost to purchase boxes from Tivo that would give me a similar configuration? I know I'd need the main/master box (I'd want the 2 TB version) and am assuming I'd need "x" satellite units. My goal would be to be able to watch anything recorded on the master box on any the televisions in the house. I'm guessing my initial Tivo hardware investment would be somewhere between $750 and $1,000. Does that sound about right? I'm fine if it's in the price range. Then I'll need to see what my programming would cost from either Fios or Xfinity. Any advice/guidance would be greatly appreciated.
