The Roamio stuff looks awesome. Haven't personally kicked the tires on it yet, but based on observations from someone whose opinions I trust, it sounds like it's arguably the best DVR out there. That said, I discussed it with my daughter and son-in-law last night, and the value proposition isn't there, especially since they're very happy with their Verizon DVRs. They've got 3 locations right now, with 2 HD DVRs, 4 recording tuners and about 120 hours total of HD storage total. They pay ~$42/month for both DVRs and one HD STB and multi-room service. No upfront dollars required. If they go Roamio, for the cheapest model with built-in MoCA and streaming and two mini clients, they're looking at about $600 hardware costs, with monthly charges of ~$27 to TiVo + $5 to Verizon for the cable card. So they save $10/month over FiOS equipment, but their payback for up-front costs is 5 years, likely longer than the life of the equipment. If they go with "lifetime service", they're looking at $600 in hardware and $800 in "lifetime" for the 3 TiVO boxes, but they'll save $37/month over FiOS. That's a payback of 38 months. Much better, but more cash than able to lay out up front, ATM.
