Unfortunately, TiVo is about the only game in town now and is why they can charge $15 a month just for their guide in addition to their equipment. NetFlix and HuluPlus streaming are $8 a piece. I tried TiVo for a few months and went back to Dish Network on their Dish America package because I was hitting my monthly broadband cap with streaming. I was able to " pause " my Dish subscription for 6 months while I tried the TiVo. Hated the TiVo interface and the slowness of the system in general. The interface looks the same but not sure about the new " version 4 " boxes. I had a v 3 box. TiVo is a lot easier than setting up an HTPC and using something like TitanTV for the guide. Just remember that having an ISP that doesn't cap your broadband is a must for streaming.

Check TV Fool to see what OTA channels you are able to get in your area. I use an Antennas Direct DB-4 for my antenna and have it mounted with a J-mount in the attic. I can reach about 50 miles with the DB-4.
