    Cloud DVRs don't work when the Internet is down.

    If internet outages are that big of a concern then you probably need to look into getting a different ISP. I've had Verizon Fios for over 10 years and I can only think of 2 times when there was an internet outage.

    Not all areas have adequate competition. However, my point still stands.

    DVR and UI licenses are ~7 or 8 million. The 24 million number is inclusive of the technologies they bought and license worldwide, like Cubiware (stb middleware, 40 customers representing 12 million users) and Digitalsmiths (prediction engine).

    You must live in a magical place where they don't have snow storms, Nor Easters, hurricanes, tornadoes or car accidents that knock down poles. Where is this place with more than one ISP?

    In my experience, not as cumbersome as getting a CableCARD paired correctly on any TiVo can be. I get PTSD just thinking about it, even since the hotlines and websites come online. The monthly or annual cost will be lower too, unless your TiVo has Lifetime/All-in.

    I agree! I’ve had Time Warner / Spectrum for about 12 years and my internet / cable has NEVER been out except for when the power is out so the TiVo wouldn’t work anyways. So I’m all for cloud DVRS as long as you could buy additional storage as needed to instantly gain space when running low and it doesn’t delete you’re recordings after so long (like some of the others)

    The magical state of New Jersey. I have both Comcast and Verizon Fios available at my home. We get occasional blizzards. Hurricanes and tornadoes are pretty much non-existent. So yeah, in 10 years I can think of 2 internet outages.

    Sorry but, a cloud DVR just introduces another possible fail-point, plus lag. Been there, and I don't need that. Plus, not everyone has an unlimited Internet data account.

    I heard about that they where going to do it about a couple weeks ago on I think cord cutters website.. the last week they started with the bs of taking up space on my guide with a banner ad that y cant get rid of.. and yesterday I guess I had another update when mostly everytime I played one of my recordings a stupid tv ad would come up .. yes u could skip by hitting enter but bs I shouldn't have to do that.. so I called and they said it would take upto 72 hours to remove me from the bs and I did a couple forced updates and yes now there gone.. but I can see where it attempts to play the ads because it try's to connect to the web for a millisecond and then just goes to my program.. but the bs guide banner ad is still there.. next call to them will be that..

    Nope: TiVo only will disable the pre-roll add, the Guide ad line stays.

    Oh, and the pre-roll ads may come back to you later, e.g. after a software update, as has happened to others here--you may need to, then, call again to get the ads disabled.

    Why do you think TiVo is selling so many Echo video and audio devices? ;)

    The only way to get a true first persons point of view, to really enjoy the experience, is to insert a chip in their head so we can get full audio and video capabilities. The hardest part is not to tell the person that he's on a "reality show." You have to pay some "serious" green backs for them not to spill the beans. Not only do I believe this could be done but I believe their actually doing it as we speak and MR Brain is their test subject. No other person would be worthy enough to don the chip.

    What say you? :)
