    2 Tuner/500 GB version

    Did this always exist or is it specially made for ChannelMaster?

    It’s the standard Edge for Antenna. The specs further down the page state 4 tuners.

    Not sure if it's entirely new to retail, but it did pass through the FCC at the same time as the original models.

    I was tempted to return my just received edge and cancel the lifetime I just bought.....

    But I’m going to hold off and just mark it as a missed deal. $200+ cheaper ... this thing is sleek and fast.

    tivo has been good to me with numerous lifetime TiVo’s I have made out on, they can keep the $$

    This is the Canadian model (the one they currently sell there), or the smaller less tuner model that was promised after launch here in the US. $350 total for 2 tuner 500 gb model really isnt a bad deal. But i almost wish it was 1 TB. Either way, I wonder if this will always be a third party model, vs what they sell on TIVO.com. I might just hold out for a late summer deal on a 4 tuner 2 tb edge? Think thats coming anyone?

    Got it , so not apples to apples but a good deal. The sting is less ...but this device so far is solid.

    I like to watch live tv with multi tuners that’s for sure .

    I mean it is an ok deal. Really reasonable when you consider the cost of a Tablo. If they get the Edge OTA 4 tuner 2 TB down to like 400 all in. i would probably pounce on that.

    Channel Master was selling the 4 tuner OTA models for $100 off a few months ago. At the same time the OTA model went to "out of stock" at the Tivo site. And they have not returned. Tivo (Xperi) might be clearing out DVRs, only thing left at site is Edge cable. Have to hope they continue to support them, lot of lifetime service paid Tivos out there, Edge and other models....................

    I think that is an error, a "cut and paste" specs for the standard OTA Edge. This one is almost certainly 2 tuners, says in main description and further down the page (below the cut and paste 4 tuner picture).

    I think these are just standard Tivo Edge (these are the 2 tuner models sold in Canada, the 4 tuner seem to be gone), not made for Channel Master. It's possible Tivo sold all their OTA Edge to Channel Master as they are no longer listed at Tivo site. Vox gone too, and Minis, wonder where they went, some other company to liquidate them? Could be wrong, we shall see.

    That is the best deal I've seen so far for the 4 tuner OTA. They mention requires 6.99 a month service plan. They do not mention if you can purchase lifetime from Tivo for $249 (which is regular price for this model). If you can net cost would be $430 plus tax? Since this is a company with their own website could contact them direct with any questions (ie not through ebay with all their rules/hiding of information etc). Just give 'em a call, see if you can add lifetime or any other questions, heck they might give ya a few more $ off if you buy direct, they would save the ebay fees. Again DO NOT contact them through ebay.................

    remind me please...is the EDGE capable of streaming to iOS devices? That's the one thing lacking from my OTA Roamio that would get me to move to a different TiVo.

    how is the OTA tuner in the Edge? The one in my Roamio is nowhere near as good as those in my Samsung TVs. :( :(

    This was $299 a few days ago from their amazon store- My brother bought one then. Looks like they bumped it back up though. So channel master site is the way to go - $332 after coupon , free ship, no tax.

    got one

    flawless install, except the remote won't pair, dammit

    global remote reset and now it pairs!

    it was sitting next to my much-loved-but-growing-older roamio and it was controlling both until i was able to finally pair it
