Re: New TiVo Bolt up for pre-order

Okay. But that doesn't answer the question of why you needed 12 tuners from 3 Roamios. Do you simultaneously record and/or watch that much live TV to need that many tuners? If not, you could have saved yourself a lot of money going with one Roamio and 4 Minis. Or if 4 tuners weren't enough, you cou...

Re: Netflix Is Raising Its Prices - But not this year,

I wonder if tiered pricing for different content will ever become an option. $5 base $10 standard $15 premium for instance.

Re: FIOS custom tv

Update for me. I just checked out pricing and custom pricing is comically high. It sounds good on the surface but they don't offer some of the same discounts of other packages. Basically if I select more than 2 of the packs above (say 30 channels total) I end up paying more than if I select extreme ...

FIOS custom tv

Can't find all the details yet but this looks like excellent news for semi cord cutters. http://www.engadget.com/2015/04/17/verizon-fios-custom-tv/ Will be great to pair must have channels that can't be streamed with streaming options of a Roku. I think my bill will drop a little but I imagine that ...

Re: Chromecast is now the top streaming device

I'm forced into using the chromecasts every few months for specific games and still can't stand the things. Just a total mess to use. Not sold on firetv yet. The tivo roamio has really grown on me as they update things.

Re: FCC's Wheeler proposes tough net neutrality rules advoca

All excellent points I agree with. I do wonder if we'd have done better if on day 0 the government laid most infrastructure and let companies like comcast install the last few feet to then sell on to us. Huge investment upfront of course (I hear cries from the right) but ultimately lower prices due ...

Re: FCC's Wheeler proposes tough net neutrality rules advoca

They have been doing this for years now. For the most part only the big cable operators are left. Net neutrality is needed for continued innovation. The cable operators act like they built this thing when in reality they have attached to public infrastructure then dominated it. It behooves everybod...

Re: watch espn

another data point. Comcr@p Business Internet 50/15 (I did some work, honestly), heavily populated DC area using Chrome dropped several times in the first half and wouldn't reload for several minutes. I switched to a regular TV.

The series you mention were produced by ITV and not the BBC.


I think Delboy is to blame really.

I can tell you the Tivo interface is just as horrific. I would have thought they all are.

Same email here. Quite surprised. I still think it is a huge bargain.

Re: Showtime Anytime? Wow - bad experience

I've been in an email conversation with Showtime support. They tell me they are working with Verizon to fix this. I've seen improvements and told them such. Still not usable for me during peaks hours. If the issue is happening with another provider or if the FIOS users want to add another data point...

Re: YouTube Availability on All 2nd and 3rd Gen Rokus Announ

Is the new one superior to the old? I have many videos in "My Playlists" (or whatever it's called) that will not play in any of the unofficial channels (Whats On, Plex, old Youtube). I haven't run into any that won't play on the new official channel. I don't care for the navigation in the...
