    I think that the reason for a small 500gb storage is most of the stuff is on OD so no real need to record everything.

    Sadly most people don't care about picture quality. I've seen a family member watch a movie on FiOS's SD TCM channel (we still don't haven't gottten the HD channel). The picture quality, especially zoomed in for letterbox movies is awful. :weary:

    I was looking at the Tivo Blog and what is written about skipmode makes it look like you may not be able to opt out of the ads with Edge.

    I don’t read that as precluding the opt-out, just that AutoSkip won’t auto-skip the pre-roll ads. If opted-out, the pre-roll ads won’t be there for AutoSkip to not auto-skip.

    I plugged a small USB fan into the USB port of my Bolt. The fan cost me $3. My fears were alleviated..:)

    One positive that I can say about the Edge is that I read it's peanut remote is backlit.

    OTA Edge remote is backlit, yes. Cable gets the old vox remote for some reason. (overstock?)

    I decided i'm not buying the tivo cable edge until they either include the lux remote or sell it at a resonable price like $19.99 or less! $44.99 is way to high for those bolt remotes.

    You wan't a high quality built remote control with a unique design that has TV/AV universal capabilities that works with all functions of a TiVo with both iR and wireless capabilities along with a built in microphone to give you the ability to have it hear what you want to watch... all for the cost of less than $20? I assume that price should also cover backlit technologies too. :)

    This is what a $20 remote looks like. ;)

    $20 is not a reasonable price for a Lux remote. But yeah they should have included it with the cable Edge. And they sell the Bolt remotes for $39.99

    The typos that really bother me on that page are "This all-in one device let’s you..." But maybe that's just me. Yeah, it's me.

    I personally still prefer the slide keyboards. Keyboard works with all apps. Voice does not still work in other apps unfortunately.

    There is no voice to type/keyboard function similar to Apple TV apps & Siri remote etc.

    Yeah, that opening paragraph seemed pretty misleading to me; I could see how someone could read it and think the EDGE could do simultaneous OTA and cable, and would likely support many more streaming apps than it does.

    The TiVo EDGE is the latest addition to the TiVo DVR family. This all-in one device let’s you enjoy live, recorded and streaming TV in one powerful device. No more switching from one device to another when the TiVo EDGE has it all! It doesn’t matter if you’re a cable subscriber or an HD antenna user, TiVo EDGE simplifies the search and brings all of your TV together.

    (I was less offended by the grammatical issues.)

    I agree, very deceptive to the first time buyer. I had to read it twice to understand.

    Have a chat with or call Tivo and ask if you can get the lux remote if your purchase Edge for cable.

    They may just include it to get the sale.

    The remote inconsistency between Edge models is weird, but the backlighting on Tivo remotes in the past was a power hog, for not much personal benefit. I turned it off when the batteries needed to be replaced after only ~3 months. Wonder if the light is any better now.

    You can turn-off the backlighting?

    Question,

    For the USB ports on the back, still no word on plugging an external hard drive into it? That would be a useful feature if it was implemented. I currently have a 3TB Tivo Bolt and don't want to lose the space.

    That could get me to update. I do like how they shrunk the design down.
