In a broad sense, yes. But from some I've talked to it isn't like Directv's Tivo in speed!! And of course, it comes with 6 tuners instead of the 2 D*s came with. Technically the box is very competitive to the actual Tivo, but the cable companies that chose to use it have got it hamstrung in some ways. The Tivo Stream support is there but disabled at the cable company request Hulu, Netflix & Amazon could work but is disabled at the cable company request External HD support is there again disabled at the cable company request Internal Ethernet-Moca bridging is there but disabled at the cable company request. Literally everything that is missing from the cable company's rental Tivo/Pace units is because the cable company wanted it that way. That's why I got the Roamio Plus. No Mediacom VOD, but I sub to HuluPlus, Netflix and Amazon Prime so why would I care??
