Advertisements The downloading process with Tivo stinks. To download a 1 hour show takes well about one hour . Ridiculous . And it fails to download sometimes it is garbage software. I dont even bother . The only areas where downloading might be helpful would be a plane ,subway where you cant get cell or wifi. I can use wifi or lte/4g to stream on a slingbox.Cant do that with Tivo. TOUCHDOWN for SLINGBOX.
