Advertisements Now I think I've been saved from wasting money on the March Madness markdowns. I was preparing to purchase an Edge, but recently I have noticed TiVO's channel guide performance is falling apart despite the fact they have been taken over by Xperi, the former provider of their channel guide, IIRC. E.G. multiple episodes of Rizolli & Isles re-runs have been listed on LifeTime this week only to be replaced with expisodes of Major Crimes. This didn't particularly bother me; I have been binging on mini-series of each of these oldies (new-to-me ,because I very infrequently or never watched the original broadcasts). However, today a double-header of R&I was actually listed in place of a 2-hour movie, Sweet Home Alabama. I'm not a big fan of streaming, because it takes too much longer to start and stop, replay and jump forward compared to TiVO's DVR. I'm slightly deaf to certain vocal sound frequencies coming from a TV, which makes me have to use the 7-second replay quite often (almost wiping out the time saved by commercial skip). Usually when I missed a piece of conversation, so did the transcriber for the closed captions or the captions make no sense, even if not totally garbled. Is TiVO giving up on the DVR business and is it time to ditch my Roamio and Bolt, both with lifetime service purchased fairly recently. I probably would have been better off with month-to-month, because I don't think I willl have recouped any savings if TiVO goes down the tube soon. Are they under any legal obligation to stop sellling the lifetime or annual plans, if their business plan is that they won't be around to honor them? Is there any legal entitlement to a pro-rata rebate if and when they fold?
