Advertisements I want to elicit feedback from the more active Tivo users here in the Tivo community. How do you feel about the New Tivo Experience? As a User since the Series 2 days (~2004), I am losing confidence in the Tivo product due to Rovi's inability to keep it on track from an engineering quality perspective. I am also concerned about the New Tivo Experience and how it impacts the User's experience as compared to the previous UI that we all like and appreciated for its speed and efficiency. BTW, I still see on the Roamio product a bug where if I am watching a previously recorded 6-7 pm program, and I am watching the recording of about 20 minutes delayed, when 7 PM arrives, the head of the buffer is at 7:20 PM. The video cursor is not supposed to jump to 7:20! Why do the engineers and product managers at Rovi not know how this is supposed to work? It should play from 6:59:59 and continue to 7:00:00 and then 7:00:01, and so on. The Roamio still has this bug and it's June 12, 2018. Moving on... The company previously known as Rovi refers to the new tivo experience in their small print like it is an absolute requirement and part of their contract with the User. That's strange. I saw this in the small print of the Father's Day promotion where they are giving away the hardware for free and expecting revenue to come from a monthly subscription with two year commitment. Is the Tivo product no longer worthy of a life-time commitment from a customer? I have needed to purchase another DVR for over 18 months and still putting off my purchase due to Rovi's missteps with the formerly great Tivo product. I have not purchased a new Tivo for two reasons: 1) Fear of the new UI (is it called Hyrda?) reducing the quality of the User experience. 2) A lack of good promotions to incentivize me to purchase. If y'all do not mind, can my fellow peers (who have done the legwork and product research) share what alternatives exist today to replace Tivo (in this thread)? After this multi-year window of missteps that Rovi has recorded in history, by botching the Tivo acquisition and subsequent management of the Tivo product, perhaps a worthy competitor is just around the corner? Is the comcast DVR worth a look? Thank you!
