On Comcast, most definitely yes.
Nominally, I believe the standard p.m. fee for the HD DVR is $10.00 (plus tax if applicable). HOWEVER, it would typically be paired with an "HD Technology Fee" of $9.95. Then there are the fees for any additional (extender) services, which can add up.
I myself have never rented any of the Comcast TV equipment other than the CableCARDs for my TiVo's and am only going by the published Services & Pricing list as of Feb 1 this year.
Note as well that the cost of the DVR rental is often included in Comcast's bundled service packages and thus can be difficult to call out. Also bear in mind that actual fees assessed can vary wildly due to Comcast's scattergun billing system. But I believe the stand-alone pricing should be something on the order of $20.
First, the X1 only has 5 tuners that I know of...and they are not all buffering at the same time. That's enough for me to say no to it. My friend has one. The price of the X1 is usually in your package. The extra outlets are $10 bucks each and they charge $10 for the Anyroom service, which you need if you have an extra outlet. They are also now charging $11 for the Gateway (I got my own Zoom modem for over 10 years...still works great). I don't have nothing of theirs so I don't get those BS broadcasting or regional sports fees. I live in a condo and basic comes with the maintenance and I am usually on promo and my bill is only $48 (w/Blast Internet). Starz comes with all packages usually and my condo also has HBO in the contract (I pay dearly for my maintence though). Can't complain here.
Why did I type all this???
They don't charge that Technology fee anymore. They have not enforced it for over 3 years. Always got a promo on it.
Not that I'm a fan, but X1 does have 6 tuners.
I think it’s the keep asking until you get the answer you want poll. But then isn’t that how polls are done? Maybe they haven’t phrased the question right yet.
It’s still the best dvr, but as a streaming box it’s mediocre.
They have 6 tuners and you can record 6 different shows at a time. I do it regularly for my wife. The cost was wrapped into the bundle so it was no extra expense. 1T storage and she can watch recordings, live TV or On Demand on any of her devices easily. She would kill me if I got rid of it.
This varies by area. Some get it, some don't.
The sixth tuner used to be reserved for QAM VOD. So the user only had access to five of them. No idea if that has changed though. But If all their VOD is now IP based then I would expect that it has changed. And the user would have access to all! Six tuners.
No problem rolling back from Hydra to the classic interface on the Roamio OTA I purchased last fall.
Plan on dumping cable altogether once AT&T expands their fiber to my home (already installed on the main street outside my neighborhood)
