While I too only care about the main title, for people who want the minimum amount of prep work, .iso capability and full menu support in a player is a godsend. You just put the disk in your PC, rip...

I try to look at the bright side. The entire TiVo DVR product platform is now under 1-roof. TiVo had control over hardware/design; they wrote and directly supported the software that makes it run;...

That's really what I was asking -- how will we know when it hits our TiVo. From scanning the threads you linked the rollout has started and will go on for a month. We should get a message on the TiVo...

OK, that all makes sense from a marketing perspective. I would presume that Channel Master is simply buying the box from a third party and reselling it the way they do their DVR's. So it probably...

Where does the assumption of recording capability come from?

For OTA, Roamio OTA is the better deal -- 1-time cost of $400 (now apparently $360) for Roamio vs. continuing monthly sub for the Bolt. Don't throw away your Premier. Put it on another TV, network it...

Pirating disks is still big business. The totally Draconian DRM in UHD disks is evidence of that.

Thanks,

Last time I ordered OQ BD-R was July/2015 at $15.98 each.
Came at the right time as I've been burning a lot lately.
LOL, $0.30/disk for BD-R.
2 spindles for me. :):)
