  • Cutting cable...suggestions

    I am helping some friends cut cable costs - They have the full package from comcast(internet/cable/phone)

    The place they moved into has internet included.

    Is Tivo the only option for DVR capabilities if they are non techie(HTPC not an option)?

    VOIP - I have Ooma service and have no complaints. The one requirement here is International calling for them as they are from Scotland so they call home probably once a week. Is Vonage the best option?

    Sorry to say I'm not going to be any help here, but it is good to see you are happy with Ooma. I pretty much narrowed down to this after a good deal of reading. I like the fact you can use your existing phones, and transfer your number.

      Just curious as to what you ended up doing here. Looks like TiVo is moving away from hardware based solutions in favor of a cloud based one. At least from what I'm reading.

      I picked up a Ooma after Christmas BTW, rolled my line over for free with a discounted year of premier service. Works great, I would strongly suggest it to anyone looking for a replacement land line solution.

        Stick with it.

        If you're doing well with it then stick it.
