I've been heavily invested in TiVo for many years and know little about these other products. However, it seems like HDHR is now offering an "all in one" solution whereby I could get something I've been interested in for a while. And that is, the ability to integrate two separate attic antennas (facing different directions - with their own respective downlead wires into the home). I've never had this ability on a single TV; and it's always meant compromises with reception on a single TV! So I am intrigued by this feature of the HDHR (it's ability to network more than one separate tuner box) along with the fact that it's now got on board storage for DVR.
But since I've currently only got Rokus (would the purchase of Fire sticks (or similar) be my only other investment besides the purchase of the Scribes)? Obviously, (for my needs) I'd need two HDHR tuners to serve each of my separate antennas in the attic, but not necessarily two "Scribe" models. Another question: does anyone know how future proof any of these devices are now days? In other words, if ATSC 3.0 catches on in a couple of years, is it likely that HDHR would offer some sort of adapter as TiVo is (supposedly) promising for their current Bolt addition? And is HDHR the only one out there offering this solution of "marrying" two separate tuners (from two entirely separate antennas) into a single TV Guide/Grid lineup? If they are - I would think they've certainly got a niche market there. And what about the guide view of HDHR? Does it have good integration of streaming services (along with the OTA) for services like Prime or Netflix? Whatever the case, I suppose people like the grid, and HDHR in general, since it has been around for a long time. And now SD seems to be jumping on board with more of an "all in one" device.
If I ever go this route, there would be some expense in changing out my current equipment. But the good news is the fact that my whole home is hard wired for networking. So that part is easy!
