    There is no better option. That's why I keep coming back to TiVo.

    Once you get through the hassle of setup, it's an amazing product.

    That said, what's the better option for 95% of the world? Just getting your cable companies DVR. Sad but true.

    It's the easiest option, though not the better option for what the Tivo can do.

    Which I know is preaching to the choir, though if the cable companies didn't make this difficult for setup because they can, it would be a much easier process.

    How is the Premiere connected? Wireless bridge? TiVo adapter? Did you try the Roamio where the Premiere is and use the Premiere's connection?

    GRRRRRR!!!!! I have a code and I didn't think I needed a new TiVo. I moved on Saturday and I can't easily use my old S2s in my new home. Comcast disabled my old DTAs and gave me new ones that need IR blasters of some such other thing. I wish I moved a day earlier. Story of my life.

    The Premieres are connected using TiVo wireless USB adapters.

    Yes, we did try the Roamio in both locations. At first, we used the adapter then realized we should take it out (seeing as how the PRO has built in wi-fi). The PRO didn't work in either location. When we put the Premiere's back in, they booted up and went right back to working as they had been.

    My new Roamio Pro is due to arrive on Wednesday. Can't wait to try it out! I'm going to try to pick up a CableCard from the Comcast office this time and see how it goes over the phone instead of scheduling a tech to come out.

    I ordered on the 24th, and got it a week later. But to be fair, I ordered late at night, so after business hours.

    On another note, I was never able to get it to work consistently with wireless. I did two chats on Saturday and all they could suggest was rebooting the router. (Second guy said to reboot the modem too, but at that point my network-server-engineer husband said no, since everything else in the house - PCs, Macs, Linux VMs, Ipads, Iphones and two other tivos stacked under the Roamio, could all connect just fine.

    On Sunday, once I got the dreaded C133 error for about the 10th time (started when I tried to transfer something from my desktop) I called support. They tried to be helpful, but said they couldn't exchange the box until we tried wired. I thought we couldn't do it, until I found the very long ethernet cable that I used to use for downloads in the living room (router is in the office and not on the side that shares the wall). Once we found both ends - since it's under furniture, storage boxes and various piece of Wii stuff (drums, balance board, etc), plugged it in, and I disabled the wireless it's been working fine.

    The support supervisor also sent me a Moca adapter and POE filter, but I don't know if we can use it since the cable doesn't actually go into the office. But we might be able to take the split that went to the bedroom when I had a tivo in there and move it. We'll see.

    Several people on my other thread and a friend told me that it could be interference on the wireless. I don't know what that doesn't affect the HD (well, maybe it does but very occasionally).

    On the cable side, the pairing hung overnight, but I called on Saturday Am and the agent restarted it and it worked great - 6 tuners, all premium channels.

    Good luck all and thanks to those who have helped me

    If you haven't already gone to get your CableCard, you might want to do it ASAP. When I went to get one maybe a year ago, I found that the local office had no multi-stream cards. I had to wait in a long, annoying line to get this news, come back the next day to do the same thing, and still go through all sorts of grief in terms of the pricing. Good luck!

    Half my order is shipped (my mini and the moca adapter they threw in) but the other half (the Roamio, the most important part) is still listed as 'order placed'... so not even processing yet.

    Looks like the first items are getting here thursday.. based on that shipping speed hoping the rest ships tomorrow so i get the roamio before the weekend.

    Which Roamio did you order? I ordered a Pro and it listed as shipped with the Mini.

    I ordered a plus.

    My order was a little different though. I ordered the mini with the advisors panel deal, but ordered the plus on a different discount so i could pay less on the monthly service (only 6ish a month). So technically 2 separate orders.

    They offered to drop my TivoHD to that then transfer that service over to the roamio as part of the deal they were offering.

    What? How did you get that. I would go for that deal in a second.
