A few months ago I got the Tivo Roamio OTA for $300 with the lifetime service from Amazon. I love it. It's about the same price as old VCRs or DVRs and well worth buying the lifetime service compared with the monthly fee. (Do the math!) Losing Netflix in Media Center pushed me over the edge to try a new solution. Now my Media Center computer just sits there taking up shelf space. Tivo keeps updating the software and the features keep coming. The 30 sec skip was useful, but I love the new full commercial SKIP option for shows that have it.
