      Happy with purchase, works well. I didn't realize with Charter that we won't get the OnDemmand. If I had known that, I might not have invested the big bucks for the box, plus lifetime fee.

          ROAMIO PLUS

          By BIFF

          from NJ

          Comments about TiVo Roamio Plus:

          We updated our old TiVo box to the new TiVo Roamio Plus . The new TiVo holds a lot more recordings and it seems to work much quicker than our old unit. Plus we can record 6 shows at once.

            I never rate anything 5 stars....that was before i met the Roamio Box. Simply the best...light years ahead of the competition. Thank-you TIVO!

                Comments about TiVo Roamio Plus:

                I replaced my whole house DVR through the cable company with this Roamio and a couple of TiVo minis. I save $50 a month on the rental of whole house gear with $2.50 per month for a cable card. I believe I'll amortize the cost soon enough. Besides that, the picture quality is better! I thought I was crazy, but when I asked my wife about it she confirmed she thought it was too. The set up is reasonably easy if you read the directions closely and I have twice the capacity of the cable DVR. The bottom line: why did I wait so long?

                They don't have a turner or cable card that is compatible with Roamio, so if they are your cable co. don't buy.
