I just got one of these on Friday. Had ordered a self install kit and received some kind of used dinosaur of a dvr, so ended up going to the store.I must say my box looked used which is understandable I guess. They recycle all these boxes.Any way,I like that I'm having access to college games like the notre dame ones which I don't see any other way of seeing them in 4k.Not like the other college games or the NFL Thursday night games that can also be accessed via the fox sports app. Nice to see the xg1v4 have those games too.Having a tivo roamio pro for 4 years now,I don't dislike the xg1v4 but wish it had certain things so I could completely abandon the Tivo ecosystem. Things like much more hard drive storage. 500gb vs 3TB is a huge difference. I'd settle for 1TB and getting 2TB when combining two xg1v4.I also don't understand why there's no infinite scrolling on the guide. You literally get to the end and have to press page up multiple times to get back to the top. Seems ridiculous.Because we now have some 4k content I think it is important to at least be able to select two resolutions so the box can switch between them depending on the content. That would be 1080p and 2160p.I believe adding options like these would pull me away from tivo because aside from those things I like the xg1v4. Yes a like other extras like auto skip for commercials but can do without them.Seeing how it seems tivo will continue to stick with cable cards and not work on things like IPTV which is where Comcast is heading, I'd like to eventually get off the ship.In the mean time think I'll stay with the xg1v4 while still keeping my tivos.
