I think the DB8e would help with the drop outs since there is more collection area. You really want to use a Y5-7-13 or y10-7-13 for wenh, wmur, and wmtw. Worth it just for wmtw which has a heroes...

I grabbed two of the $299.99 TiVos. Like them a lot. Wish I bought three. I could go on and on about the goodness of this device, but it all ends with a $15 monthly charge, so absent the permanent...

I agree with this sentiment. Not sure I would pony up for Sling TV, but it will make the DVR+ much more attractive. Hope to see Plex and Netflix soon. Looking forward to Linear OTT.

You cannot get Roamio OTA with Lifetime for $299.99, so there is no choice.

Outside of this forum, the DVR+ is a very good DVR. It provides a grid guide, records programs, has excellent trick play, and does not require a monthly fee. It's all we ever wanted. They added a...

It will disappoint a few people. Certainly those posting here and on their facebook page. CM is terrible at marketing and even worse at managing expectations.

I probably did not articulate that well. I like the DVR+. I like it as an untethered OTA DVR. It does everything well in that regard. I have always regarded it as a runner up to the TiVo except...

I don't think this will kill off the DVR+. I expect CM to be a very strong competitor once they supplement OTA with Linear OTA. This may well push them on Netflix, Plex, and other streaming apps. ...

Not sure you would get much for the DVR+ and you might regret the sale if they get into a feature war with now price competitive TiVo.

Not really. In Maine, most stations are vhf. For me, that is Icons and Heroes and WMTW's subchannel. In New Hampshire, WENH (PBS) and WMUR (ABC) are vhf broadcasters.

I'd be interested to see a TVFool report for your location. Also curious what is between your antenna and the horizon (through peak vs through roofing).
