Been on and off of this site for a long time. My first Tivo was from Direct TV. Then I went with their brand of DVR for many years. I moved a went with Universe (AT&T). Had that for a while and back to Direct TV and a genie. Prices went up a lot so I switched to cable with Tivo. Yes I have had some problems(nothing major) except the 3tb Bolt pit the dust after a year and half. Replaced it and my son added a 4 tuner bolt to the account. So now it is 2 bolts and one mini. The mini is bad with streaming apps. BUT to me if the DVR records and plays the program that is the main thing. I don't care about the UI. A DVR is a DVR in my book. Yes I am saving money by using Tivo vs my cable company DVR. Will I stay with Tivo? For now yes...only time will tell. If you hate things about the tivo so much go back to VHS or Beta. Just my 2 cents.
