I have only had my Tivo Bolt+ for just under 3 yrs and it's cost me a small fortune. The 1st yr was good except I can't get a strong enough signal in living room for Tivo. Signal is great on antenna only. Had to move Tivo to another room for signal strength so the 2nd yr I added a tivo mini because I got tired of casting. Cost 179 dollars. Mini didn't work because spectrum modem wasn't strong enough. Spent several hundred more on new modem, router and Omni just to use mini and watch tv in living room. Then, Tivo signal strengh started failing on main box. New antenna in window didn't help. Spent several hundred more dollars on outdoor antenna an installation. Now I have way less channels on Tivo including 3 I regularly record. The antenna by itself picks up 84 channels. With tivo 50 channels. Yes customer support, i've also spent money on hdmi cables. I ended up spending more money for the Spectrum app for my missing tv channels. Spectrum records up to 50 hours. So now I'm spending 45 dollars more a month. So much for lifetime membership tivo. My next dvr will be a Tablo, not a tivo. Very dissapointed.
