The Roamio/OTA deal is not new, but combined with the TCDA92000 Woot, this represents the BEST DEAL EVER for a house full of TiVos. TiVo is the only box a cord cutter needs — one box, one remote, no changing inputs. It streams Amazon Instant Video/Prime, Vudu, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, MLB.tv, and Plex. It is a whole house solution. You can watch things recorded on one DVR on any other DVR or mini in the house. The Minis work as advertised. They make good use of the four tuners per DVR. The recording is very smart with season/one pass.
- TiVo Roamio/OTA with Lifetime for $299.99 shipped free from Tivo
- TiVo TCDA92000 factory refurbished TiVo Mini (old IR only model) for $69.99 shipped for $5 from Woot
Great way to fill your home with TiVos. Get the Roamio/OTA with Lifetime from TiVo for $299.99 and add three Minis from Woot for $215. The Minis are factory refurbished, but carry the same 90 day warranty as the new units. They require no monthly fees. This is the original Mini, so the remote layout is different than the Roamio/OTT and there is no RF support, so you will need to point the remote at the Mini to change the channel.
