TiVo Roamio OTA Digital Video Recorder

I am also a long time Media Center user, and I’ll never forgive Microsoft. I don’t see this as an upgrade; I found Media Center to be more refined, more intuitive. That being said, TiVo is the best replacement I could find after trying other Media Center replacements (Kodi, Media Portal, Myth, NextPVR, etc.). Anyway, as was noted previously, there is a great deal on these directly from TiVo- includes the lifetime guide, which I highly recommend (do the math, a year and a half of regular guide will pay for the lifetime subscription). Here’s the link:

The “fine print” says “cannot be combined with…multi-service discount”. I already have two TiVos and would certainly WANT the $12.99 monthly service i.e. the $2 multi-service discount. But I can’t apply for MSD with this offer from woot? Are these boxes not from TiVo somehow?


#4

Only $10 cheaper than a new unit at big box stores (after shipping) or from that mega jungle esite. Add in $14.99/mo service plan -and not sure this has the same bang Woot! Used to bring to deals. Seems like someone needs to rewind the digital playback button a little longer/harder for me to want to play this show. …but that’s just me.


#5

Is this eligible for the product lifetime service (PLS) discount that’s available right now on tivo.com? On tivo.com you can get PLS for $250 rather than normal $500.

If that discount is not available, saving $250 on PLS is a much better deal than saving $15 on the device.


#6

The Roamio OTA has never been eligible for the multi-service discount, whether direct from TiVo.com or via Woot.com.

These boxes are from Tivo…somehow. :slight_smile:


#7

The Roamio OTA plus PLS offer is available at TiVo.com and requires purchase of both hardware and service. Woot’s offer is on the Romaio OTA with monthly service.

Dammit I bought two of these (one for my house and one for my SO’s) and you guys just made me realize that I got a BAD DEAL. boooooo


#9

I bought two of them and I will be shipping them back, refund will be less 15% restocking fee and no shipping refund. Caveat emptor or, put another way, woot! customers beware. Woot! is no longer bringing us great deals, they are just dumping crap from Amazon!


#10

Why are you shipping them back? Not what you are wanting, or not working properly, or?

Do not be a foolish compulsive senior citizen who doesn’t read the fine print. OTA did not register as understandable. All I wanted was DVR. After realizing that this was not the right equipment for my needs, even just because it was the “deal” for me - it was too late to cancel. I tried to check return policies. Customer Service said: NO Refund, No returns. I’m stuck with a purchase I will never use. Buyer Beware. . . .
