TiVo is still relevant these days?

Spoken like someone who's never used a TiVo. It certainly has it's issues but it's still the best DVR on the market, and it's still cheaper getting a TiVo with lifetime than it is to pay the cable man every month.

I recently picked up a Roamio Pro (although if I were to do it now, I would probably pick up an upgraded 4TB Roamio Plus from Weaknees.com). I have Comcast, and a big motivator was my desire to get as much Comcast equipment out of my house as possible. When I upgraded (from an older TiVo HD), I also bought two Tivo mini's for other rooms in the house.

The whole system works VERY well. 6 tuners on the Roamio Pro, all of which are available in rooms with the mini's - and on my iPad/iPhone anywhere in the house. This update now extends that (recordings and live TV) streaming to my iPad/iPhone to any WiFi network (i.e., work) - with next year's update including streaming it anywhere I can get 4G. I can also tell TiVo to record any show from anywhere I have internet access. As icing, you can search by show/actor/subject and find shows across services (upcoming broadcast, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc.).

I love my AppleTV's, but the new TiVo's are by far the best way to enjoy your cable subscription.

Tivo has changed a lot. When tivo released the first dvr I had one for about a year or so then just went with Verizon's dvr for like 4 years or so, but with the release of romio I came back and I'm glad I did. Yes tivo is still Relevant. It actually works great I am so glad I went back. It intergrates my hulu and netflix accounts so if there is a show I like it will show me that the show is available in those services and I can watch whatever I want without turning on the Apple TV. The space is amazing I have been using it for 3 months never deleted anything and the storage is still not full. It is also so much quicker than my card dvr which is important and has Small features that are important like pressing a button on the box to find the remote, suggestions, and switching between tv and online services. The iphone app never crashes like my cables dvr app and when I am not home it works 100% to record shows so they are there when I get home.

I understand where you're coming from, but the jump from an S3 to a Roamio is huge - very large jump in processing power, Stream built-in, MOCA built-in, new underlying OS, 6 tuners.

I can't comment on how it compares to the Hopper, but after having a "discussion" with DirecTV about how the $500 I spent on a DVR at Best Buy was just a "lease" and that I couldn't give it to my brother - a multi-year DTV customer - but had to send it in or get charged almost $1k ... I swore to have as little equipment from the cableco in my house as possible. With the Roamio + minis + my own cable modem, the only thing Comcast has in my house is a single cablecard.
Agree 1000%. Longtime DTV subscriber (Sunday ticket), tried to double charge me and wouldn't fix it so I told them to shove it. Got a Premier 4 and a Bright House cable card, short of being free couldn't be happier. As long as there's sports cable/satellite companies will rule, doesn't mean I have to "lease" their crappy outdated equipment. Bill is reduced by a third (with a better sports pack) and my dvr is infinitely more functional. And if I decide to upgrade I can sell "my" box.
