Geez, I thought I'd sign up with Comcast for TV to bundle and save a little money. I currently have DirecTV, but Comcast for internet/phone.
What a crock. To be able to timeshift live TV I'd have to get two X1 DVRs that can't play back each others recordings. The second DVR would cost me $20 a month, on top of the $18 a month for the first one!
Both my DVRs from DirecTV cost me $10 a month, and they can talk to each other. This includes a HR24 and HR34.
I could go with one of the X1 sub boxes in my bedroom and loft, but then would be giving up live TV timeshifting in those rooms. (Recording a program so I can pause just doesn't cut it in 2014.)
Can any Comcast customers show me a better option to get Comcast TV with live TV timeshifting in two rooms, plus being able to watch from any recordings in a third room without paying through the nose?
Yes, I looked at TiVo, but paying hundreds of dollars for a box, then paying hundreds of dollars for guide data, then paying monthly for a CableCard is no better financially.
