Being a condo owner - satellite is not an option. I never could understand why TiVo makes economic sense. Comcast charges $15 a month to rent their box, maybe it's now a couple dollars more. With...

Paul, thanks.

Maybe I'll look into X-1 again. Educate me, please. If I understand correctly, all X-1 boxes (including the SG2V2 X1 box you mention) acts as a DVR and that it stores everything...

They kept renting those old boxes for 10 to15 years --long after they became obsolete because they could only store a few HD programs.
OTH - the risk you take by buying is that the box you buy today...

Thanks, guys. Looks like the 2nd suggestion is much more flexible. Now I just need to find/buy some speakers.
The idea I can easily turn them on and off, selectively, is great.

Do any (all?) powered speakers come w. a "standby" mode?

Now that Chromecast Audio (CCA) has a multi-room feature, I want to set up 2 to 4 powered speakers. With CCA, you can use ANY powered speaker - being an open system. You are not tied down to...
