So I had been browsing for Tivo Premiere's on Amazon and elsewhere as I was considering upgrading from my HD. Anyway, Amazon sends me a nice targeted email because I was browsing DVRs and I end up clicking on a link for Sezmi (which I had never heard of until this morning): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00400NU5S/ref=pe_71030_18959370_pe_vfe_d3 This was pretty good timing, as I'd been thinking of cutting the cord, but the inability to get good reception on FOX & ABC was holding me back. So, I spend part of my day reading reviews, etc. Basically, the box right now amounts to a DVR for OTA, something I was considering using the Tivo when/if I canceled my TWC. Well, on the way home from work, I stop by Best Buy and am impressed enough with the demo in the store that I buy the unit, figuring I'll give it a shot, but likely will return it and stick with Tivo. Here's my immediate feedback after a night of playing with the Sezmi: The HD UI is so light years ahead of where Tivo is that it is embarrassing for Tivo. Honestly, it is. It looks better, is more responsive, just overall so far superior. The guide system makes a ton more sense (you shift between time & channel view), there is a history button that pops up the last 5-6 shows you were watching, they allow you to create custom user profiles for each person using it. You can have a custom background skin. You can just hit a search button to bring up search and choose what you want to search. Overall, just came away really impressed with this unit, but really more disappointed in Tivo. Here is this little startup with more innovative UI in a few years development than Tivo has mustered in the last decade. Not to say that this unit is faultless. Far from it. Firstly, you have to be committed to going OTA, obviously. Secondly, it's louder. There is some chop, audio & video to the OTA signal, though about as much as what I got through my Tivo. The remote is an absolute disaster. While I like that they are thinking outside the box (no numbers, and I haven't even noticed they are missing) but it takes awhile to adapt to their system. And the layout is just dreadful. And there is no ranking of season passes that I can see of, though their conflict resolution is more elegant than Tivos (I had two season passes for 8pm tomorrow and tested what would happen if I added another recording - it simply gave me the option of which of the 3 I wanted to cancel; we'll see what happens when a random conflict pops up). Oh, and it appears the menu guide only goes out about a week, which is lame. Anyway, just wanted to throw this post out there. I hadn't heard anything about Sezmi until today, and there is very little posted on this forum about them. I could go into more details of pros/cons of this box if there is some interest. I've got 30 days before I need to return to BB, so I'm gonna give it another week or so, but the $5/mo fee is nothing and $150 for a 1TB box is a song. I'd highly suggest anyone considering going OTA or someone already using Tivo for OTA check this box out.
