I jumped from Tablo to Tivo Bolt and two Tivo Mini's. I couldn't be happier with that. When comes to Value this what cost me with Tablo.
$299.00 for 4 tuner Tablo
$100.00 For 2 TB Hard Drive.
2x $199.00 For Nvidia TV Box. The reason was for having same remote on two TV''s
I could go with Amazon Fire which is $150.00 but I hate Amazon just like Apple Controls What you can install on it. If they don't like something then will be gone.
$50.00 For Lousy Guide. (1 year)
With Tivo it cost me as I would pay for new but I got them Used on Ebay. ($200, $90.00 and $110.00)
$299.00 Tivo Bolt with 1TB hard drive
2x $145.00 Tivo Mini (But you can watch it on other boxes with their App but prefer the right hardware)
$150 for Guide. (1 year)
So total is:
$850.00 for Tablo that had every day problems with disconnect and turning it self off. I can't say with the Old Tablo but new one have a problem. Channel changing that it takes up to 30 seconds to load for each channel.
Very weak tuner.
$740.00 for Tivo Setup. Which I'm getting stronger signal, better guide, better recording, no channel buffering, Channel switching at any time, Large Guide, mini guide , channel return, plus App like Netflix, Hula and few others that after first log in will remember you so you can go to netflix or others like it would be part of the Channels.
This year I saved $110.00. Actually I saved more because I purchased used.
And I did not had a single problem with it yet. So any one saying that Tablo is better then wake up and smell the coffee. I don't mine spent a $100.00 a year and be happy with it, then have something and having problem every day.
(But it cost as used one Total $550.00. with the Guide for one year.Plus Tivo will service them for no cost or small replacement fee)
Next year it will cost $150.00 for guide while Tablo $50.00 that would be $100.00 more then I would be stuck with Tablo.
