TiVo Stream 4K is an affordable streaming device with high-quality video, but it’s not a compelling buy over rivals. TiVo’s biggest problem is that it has a twin: The new Chromecast with Google TV. The TiVo digital video recorder (DVR) connects to the Internet and gives you access to Cogeco On Demand as well as movies and TV shows from a variety of streaming Apps.
Getting the most out of your TiVo requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
Please be sure to read and save the entire manual before setting up or using your TiVo. Misuse may result in damage to the unit and/or cause harm or serious injury. Download the manual and save it for future reference.
|Top-notch DVR recording and viewing options||Recordings are getting pre-roll video ads|
|Much quieter than earlier TiVos||Whole-home DVR still requires expensive add-on boxes|
|The antenna version has a backlit remote||App support is falling further behind dedicated streaming players|
The best thing about TiVo DVR has always been its fundamentals. No other DVR gives you as much control over which programs to record and how to record them, and no other DVR makes live TV viewing so convenient.
