That’s my plan here. I already have antenna direct to 3 of the 4 TVs. Channel surfing will be done on the TV if we’re so inclined. Once we decide what we are watching we can switch to Tablo if we want to have the pause and stuff. We’re familiar with how streaming works now. Only really got the Roku a couple months ago. But streaming darn near anything, from any source, has some inherent startup delay.
I understand some people find the wait inconvenient. But… isn’t that the reality of streaming? If you buy a device whose function is to stream, then isn’t the instant gratification of immediate channel changes kind of a lot to ask? That’s kinda how I’m looking at it, but honestly we’re kinda new to streaming having been on satellite for many years, then cable. What little streaming we did before the Rokus was whatever streaming apps are on the TiVo like Prime, Netflix, Hulu… and you know what? The Tivo on live TV might be instant change, but every streaming app run on the TiVo has startup buffering just like any other streaming service.
Am I missing something?
