Advertisements So I got my Tivo Edge This week. It was already activated for me on my account. I have been watching programming for a day and comparing picture/sound to my Bolt & Comcast Motorola DVR on my Sony OLED A9g TV's (55" & 77") I was excited for the Edge because of the 6 tuners and hopefully quieter unit, plus the extra video upgrades like Dolby Vision, etc. These are my personal impressions and decisions so no comments on anything you disagree with. Its just a review. 1. Design - I have no issue with the design. The double stack design is about the same size as my Bolt. The edge is a little shorter but a little wider than Bolt so it evens out. It has no functional purpose I can see from the outside. Edit - I did see vents under the edge that overlaps on top, so may have some air flow functionality in new case design. 2. Finish - Piano Black. I hate piano black. They look like crap after a day with dust and when you wipe it they show scratches immediately. I don't like piano black on anything. Don't know why manufacturers keep using it. But if your unit gets hidden in a cabinet I guess its not a big deal. 3. Noise - The Edge is significantly quieter than my Bolt. No high pitched sound all the time, but it is not silent. It does sound like a cheap PC fan running all the time. In a normal room with activity you won't hear it at all, but in a silent room (like reading a book, sleeping, nap, etc.) it is not silent. But much more improved. 4. Setup - setup went as expected. Same multiple downloads to get it up and running. When I finally had it ready to watch live TV, it gave me an error saying all 6 tuners were in use (are you kidding me?). After unplugging it 3 times it finally worked. Not sure what that was all about. 5. TE4 - I have no issue with this as it is all I have ever known. Worked fine. 6. Picture/Sound Quality - this is where my biggest expectations were for getting this unit. My comcast Motorola Unit gives a super crystal clear picture on my A9G. The only reason I want to replace it, is it has 2 tuners only and an ancient program guide. So I thought this was the ticket. I first did a compare of the picture with my Bedroom TV where the Bolt lives. I compared multiple channels and recordings. I watch the Daily show nightly and know how rich the colors are of the set and clarity with the Bolt. The edge fell short. The colors were off, almost muted. I even ran the recording from the Bolt through the edge and still same issue. When I got my Bolt I hooked it up and had to do no TV picture adjustments. The edge is going to make me have to redo my TV settings and recalibrate my TV and I am not sure that would even fix it. So I then went down to the living room to compare to my Motorola box. Same issue with colors but also the picture on the Edge is soft compared to my Motorola box, just not crystal clear. The sound also was not the same for some reason. The A9G's have built in subwoofers that give rich low end sound. It was not the same, I noticed that immediately. There are really no settings in Tivo to adjust for picture or sound except the HDR and Dolby Sound and those were the same as the Bolt. 7. Remote - Cable Edge owners do not get Lux, lighted remote. Even though we are paying 50.00 more for Edge Cable than OTA, which does get it. That made me mad. I would think higher price gets better equipment. 8. Plan Cost - Edge Cable charged double than Edge OTA for monthly plan - another kick in the groin. Final Decision- Because the edge is not getting me anything more improved than my Bolt (picture I feel is actually worse), the fact that for Sony TV's the Dolby Vison does not work yet (Tivo may do a fix later), the soft picture, Cable owners get cheated with old remote and double plan cost and charged 50.00 more for unit itself, I have decided the Edge is not for me. I can wait for the Bolt to be blown out at a much cheaper price and get another one of those at Best Buy. Maybe in future if Tivo does some improvements. I am not sure if these units are made by someone else than the Bolt was, but the picture difference was a deal breaker for me on top of the high cost. Sorry Tivo.
