Summary: Love the 4 channel recording capability. I absolutley hate how all the networks are trying to keep you on thier channel by starting and stoopping shows 2 or 3 minutes early or late, so your recorder will have fits. Having 4 channels has pretty well taken care of THAT issue.
Summary: I decided to purchase my TiVo to move towards my goal of reducing my cable bill and get rid if an awful DVR. The DVR we had with cable didn't work well and kept making recording errors. I'm happy to say that we have encountered zero errors with the TiVo! I love it!
Summary: Moved to a Condo with HOA and didn't want to hassle with them about Sat dish. Had the first Directv Tivo DVR in the past, so I was familiar with the interface. Needed large storage so I picked the Premire XL and XL4. Netflix was a must. Xfinity on demand and great live tv makes it a no brainer.
Summary: I have been a long-time customer of Tivo, and their service used to be very good. I ordered a new box last Christmas, and it didn’t even last a year. They sent me another box and it was dead on arrival.
The almost perfect interface for serious television watchers

Summary: We've had Tivo in our lives for at least ten years, having gone through at least five models. It is always a hard swallow to upgrade the Tivo machine because you can't transfer the lifetime service agreement from one machine to another.
Summary: I bought this TiVo Premiere XL4 TCD758250 HD on August 4, 2013. Since I set it up about 5 weeks ago I have been having Netflix Streaming Issues. (Also, when changing channels, it is not crisp and clean - sort of glitchy.) It works pretty well except when it comes to streaming Netflix.

Summary: Sour Grapes-purchased XL4 only 3 weeks ago and now Roamio available. Old Series 3 HD failed after 5+ years so bought XL4 HD. Less than 1 month later Tivo launches new Roamio product line with the features I was truly waiting for. Wish I had known this was coming..........aaarrggghhh!
