No to TiVo, but yes I am renting an M-Card from the Cable company. Two, in fact.

I currently have one Ceton infiniTV x4 installed directly in my HTPC. And I have a second one installed in an...

I think the "SlingTV" app (available on Shield) is pretty popular... something like $20 or $25 a month, and provides a lot of cable tv channels (like ESPN) over the internet.

I watch entirely too...

I'm pretty sure Netflix announced that they're shooting all of their 2016 original content in 4K, with full Dolby Vision HDR Support.

I don't think that set is Dolby Vision certified, though... or...

The last time I tried to authenticate a roku I got told "no"... I'm glad to hear that that's changed, but I've fully transitioned over to Shield at this point.

Cool. Thanks for checking.

I couldn't imagine why that feature wouldn't work... I was just going by what the page said and what another poster had told me.

Perhaps regarding WMC. Great news regarding HDHR DVR.

Both of those things only serve to strengthen my anti-$15-for-OTA stance. I'm pro-WMC, and eventually planning to transition to HDHR DVR...

The conversation I've been having with you has been centered around whether or not to spend $15-a-month for OTA service. My $100-a-month cable subscription isn't on-topic for that discussion. ...

I have no idea what $100 you are referring to... I certainly wasn't championing a $100-per-month OTA service.

I stand by everything I said. If all we're talking about here is OTA and DVR for OTA,...

If I was "cutting the cord", there's absolutely no way I'd pay $15 a month for OTA... JMO. Defeats the whole point.

Whatever "hard" there is to DIY-DVR, cutting the cord and going OTA removes...

Glad you like it!
