Advertisements I had a premiere with a mini. The Premiere lost the HDMI and I could only connect it to the video out. I could also watch through the Mini. Also while at the Mini I could see what the other 3 tuners were playing and I could go back and forth between them. I lost my job and I could no longer pay either the TiVo subscription nor the cable. After about a year, I got another job and was able once again to afford both. The first thing I noticed, was that the Mini would no longer show the 3 tuners, it would only show what it was playing and that's it. I thought it was strange, but I thought maybe there had been a software upgrade and that ability had been lost. After awhile I got tired of the Premiere only been able to see a degraded screen and not HDMI. I called TiVo, and they presented me with a ROAMIO option. The sales guy was so nice and helpful, and answered all my questions, but little did I know that he was just trying to make a sale. My first question was would the Roamio show the 3 other tuners trough the Mini? YES he said... LIE! it did not! Second question would ALL my shows in the Premiere transfer to the New Roamio? YES he said... LIE! they did not. Although I had lots and lots of programs and movies, the transfer took a long time, but it did NOT transfer everything! It transferred only some TV shows(series) for example, but not all of them in the group. It transferred about 9 or 10% of the movies. Third question would the capacity of the Roamio be enough for my recording needs? he said YES. He could have SOLD me a bigger Roamio, but he didn't, instead he told me I could expand the Roamio with an external HARD drive. I said Oh.. ANY HARD DRIVE, YES he said ANY hard drive. I insisted. It does NOT have to be a special one? NO he said you can expand it with ANY hard drive(external)! LIE!! you can't. Anyway I made my purchase and when I received the unit I had to go to the Comcast place and get the card, installed it, got everything ready, and since the premier was in the VIDEO input, I was able to connect them both to the TV. The first thing I did was to connect my external 1TB hard drive, and it would NOT recognize it. I found out the hard way the hard drive had to be a TiVo purchased one. I then started transferring the recordings, and they were taking a long long time. but I noticed the transfer list was always erratic, and it was transferring only some stuff. Well, I guess I got used to it, and I left it as it was. And then came November 1, 2019. The Roamio took an update, I think that's when the TiVo+ was introduced. well, after the update, the HDMI looked like CRAP! all the colors were shifting, the quality was terrible! so I connected another HDMI cable, and it did not make any difference. so I connected the HDMI to another HDMI input, and no, no difference. I connected it to another TV, and still the same. I called TiVo, and they "tortured" me by doing all the steps I have just mentioned, again, I kept telling the guy I have already done that, but well, they have to go through their steps I guess. He said I had to ship it back and get another one. I said what about all the shows? he said they will be lost!!! I really did NOT want to go to the trouble of transferring the shows again(Premiere was still active) and I had some shows already in the Roamio. so I said just forget it. SO I'm using a Roamio that has bad HDMI. Sorry to rant so much, but I'm so Frustrated!!!
