Advertisements Sorry that my post had messed up what I was quoting, I fixed it. My comments where directed at that post which indicated that software on older TiVos must be terrible. It was/is not, with those older units functioning very well for what they where designed for (to be DVRs). TiVo started this move to being a unified entertainment system with the Premiere (they called it One Box back then). The Premiere units (Series 4 TiVos) where a complete fail. They were barely use-able as a DVRs when in the HD UI before the 2014 software rewrite and still suck as a streaming device in my opinion. The Premiere units did also have the older SD UI as an option and before the 2014 rewrite if one didn't want to deal with the terrible (at the time) HD UI you could just switch to the SD UI and they functioned well as a DVR. The Roamios (Series 5 TiVos) released in 2013 where the first units that really functioned acceptably as combined DVR/Streaming devices. The Bolts (Series 6 TiVos) are even better at it. I agree for people who are consuming video from various source the One Pass concept and unified search are great - when they work. However the way TiVo decided to implement these features is complex and has caused issues for many people. So for those who just watch TV via cable or OTA having this complexity sucks when it is causing issues and they never get any benefit from it. Of course the best solution is for TiVo to just make is all work correctly. Maybe someday.
