I’m not clear on what primary DVR means — what’s used to record and watch what was record, or the primary device used for viewing content including live TV? I still watch mostly live TV and channel surf, so I use my TiVo for that so I picked I still use it as my primary DVR. But for watching things later, I try to use the streaming apps or Channels DVR as much as I can. I only use TiVo to watch recordings not available through those options.

It says "Primary DVR", so I would think you would categorize yourself as: "I have moved onto another hardware DVR solution like Channels DVR or equivalent". I really don't even see live TV as an option. It is a good question! By default, the TiVo is showing live TV when not playing back recordings. :unsure:
Yeah, I think the thread title and poll can be interpreted as asking different things. I've definitely moved on to other solutions for what I used to use the DVR feature of a TiVo. But the thread title asks if we still use TiVo, and TiVo is what I still primarily use to consume content.

ETA: And I changed my vote to "I still have a Tivo recording shows but it’s not my primary DVR" and "I have moved onto another hardware DVR solution like Channels DVR or equivalent", since I can pick more than one.
