    I bought an Edge to replace my Roamio thinking it'd stream better, but I might just send it back (argh)

    Or you could just do as I did. I put a colossus 2 card and a usb-uirt in a old pc installed npvr and emby and connected it to a old mini. I can record and stream everything now.

    Nice idea but it seems that TIVO should accommodate their users, and not remove existing features, alter all they want $499 for their new box. The only reason I use TIVO is because my Roamio box works with pyTivo. Otherwise it would be cheaper to rent a DVR from my cable company.

    Do you have same rough instructions on how you got all of that setup? I ended up keeping my Edge (was going to send it back within 30-days and really should've), so now I'm getting close to capacity and looking to offload/archive some of it's content.

    It is actually quite simple. I purchased a old style mini from weaknees and breakout cables. I setup the mini as normal connected it to the colossus 2 card installed drivers and software from hauppauge web site, installed nextpvr and set it up using usbuirtsend.exe and schedules direct installed emby and nextpvr plugin. It is that simple. btw, if you are running windows 10, you may need to roll your own drivers for the usb-uirt. You will also need a semi-decent gpu for transcoding. I use a quadro p400

    edit: I forgot to mention, I also use mcebuddy and comskip to remove commercials
