    Just wondering, and maybe @TiVo_Ted can give us a heads up, will the Edge be available via Amazon any time soon? Have a boatload of Amazon reward cash waiting to be dropped, and I can think of no better use right now than to give the Edge a spin. I keep reading how the retail market isn't factoring greatly into Tivo's long-range plans, so wasn't certain if third-party sales were going to continue.

    I purchased a new Edge with lifetime service plan and extended warranty. I have loss one Roamio OTA due to a power spike in spite of my surge suppressors, so the 3 year plan will probably pay for itself. I'm curious to see how the video quality degrades with the number of tuners used at once. On the Roamio OTA I have limited myself to just two programs at once. This hasn't been a hardship because I have a Magnavox DDR/DVD combo with twin tuners along with a JVC and a Panasonic DVD-Ram recorders. The DVD-Ram recorders died in late August due to a severe storm that did a lot of damage to our home. The insurance covered cost of replacement so I went with a new Edge and a Mini. I am waiting for the USB Wireless Adapter 5 to be released this month, due on or after Oct. 7th, 2019, so I can add it to the Mini.

    It would be interesting to see how many sales Amazon.com racks up at those prices. :)

    Looking at the product pics there, I had the same initial reaction that I did when I first saw the Edge model: why did the photographer put two of them in the picture, one on top of and slightly offset from the other? ;)

    It shouldn't degrade at all. TiVos just records the incoming digital data to the hard drive, whether it's from a cable company or your antenna. I record 4 OTA streams on my basic Roamio all the time, and sometimes push the 6-tuner limit on my Roamio Pro with Comcast.

    Regarding your comment on the picture of one on top of the other. It is my understanding that is one unit.

    Not really. The mini VOX looks good. The Edge is weird. Look's like described one box on top of another, but not really. Just another different design.

    No, for ota, the degrade is an all or nothing picture

    Since they split the antenna signal, instead of a 4 port aplifier internal, the signal strength will be split too. Dropouts will occur on weak channels

    I submitted a price feedback yesterday on Amazon and linked the official Tivo page showing you could get Edge for 399.99 from Tivo.
