I haven't done, but am planning, to do the following instead.
Get a Tablo. It's a DVR for an Antenna. But it does NOT plug in to your TV. Instead it plugs in to your Ethernet (or WiFi). You also have to provide your own USB pocket hard drive for the recordings. If you want program listings, there is a small charge (don't remember how much, but less than a single TiVo).
To watch, you have to use your own device. An app for Android or iOS. Or an App on a Roku device. And they have a variety of client viewers. The beauty of this is that a Roku at ever TV not only gets you internet streaming, but recordings from your Tablo over your house local area net.
Again, I haven't tried this yet, but it's in my near future plans.
Two years after the night that began his ordeal, Talley sued the Denver Police Department, the FBI (which participated in the joint Safe Streets Task Force that arrested him), and the city of Denver on September 14, 2016. “It’s been very stressful. I’ve been somewhat relieved that it’s been finally filed. However, all the media and with the addition of the anniversary date of event has brought me recent ‘flashbacks’ of the incident,” Talley wrote me a few weeks ago. He is seeking $10 million in damages.
In response to a series of questions about the lawsuit’s allegations of police brutality, Hart’s investigation, and departmental corruption, the Denver Police Department declined to comment, stating that “it would be inappropriate to comment on a pending lawsuit out of respect for the legal process. Upon conclusion of the legal proceedings, the department will gladly address any public concerns regarding this matter.”
At the same time as Detective Jeffrey Hart was working to rebuild the case against Talley, Talley was attempting to rebuild his life. He hadn’t paid rent during his two months in jail, so he was living in homeless shelters. The money he had saved was gone.
Potential employers in the financial industry would express interest in Talley’s application only to rescind offers after conducting a background check.
The police have to be tough and brutal. It's their job. All suspects are guilty, otherwise they wouldn't be suspects.
But seriously, I wonder if the police brutality will be addressed at all. Looking at TFA where you can see Talley's face, and the robber's face; Talley is a good looking young man and probably was healthy and had a life.
"It is dangerous for a video examiner to tell the court that the person on video is the defendant. If it were that easy, there would be little need for trials in a surveillance society and that’s a frightening thought."

Ladd Erickson, don't limit yourself, think outside the box
Dear Ladd Erickson,
I understand you are looking for evidence in unedited and unpublished videos in order to charge Amy Goodman for her brazen and willful acts of journalism.
Why are you limiting yourself to unedited videos? Why not edited videos as well?
What about videos with special effects added? Digitally enhanced?
Thank you for your ongoing efforts to protect us all from news and information that we should not be aware of. Government censorship and abuse of power to intimidate journalists is a time honored practice in history. The first amendment should never stand in the way of your passion and zeal.
Is it BIAS to remind people that the sun rises in the East instead of the West? It would seem that the obsession with this concept, and lack of open mindedness on the issue would be a strong indicator of bias.
Don't focus on observational evidence. Focus on the controversy about which direction the sun rises.
If you've flipped a coin hundreds of billions of times (4 billion years * 365), and it has always come up West; it doesn't mean that the coin toss won't land on East tomorrow morning.
If the government wanted physical keys to our property, it might (and I say 'might') be possible to keep those physical keys secure. Even knowing that physical keys can be copied.
But digital keys, unlike physical keys, can be copied by hackers, over the network, without taking the original copy. (Do you hear that RIAA / MPAA?)
Given the recent news stories of hacking, would Hillary really want her own property protected by a system where the government had an unknown number of copies of keys to her property, and the key holders were unknown, and it might go completely unnoticed if hackers made off with copies of those keys.
I wouldn't want Hillary to leave her property's back doors open to the public. Just open to anyone who has a special key to get in through that door. Of course, as with the rest of us, she should not be aware of how many copies there are of that key, or who has them. She should just assume that only good guys will have a copy of that digital key.
Remind Hillary that a digital key to her property, unlike a physical key, can be stolen over the internet by the same kind of people who hacked the DNC.
Netfilx will never compete on 'theater experience' features like: * screaming children * inability to pause the movie * listening to other people narrate the movie * . . . or tell their life story * over priced limited selection of food * being treated like a potential criminal before you can enter the theater * 30 minutes of commercials * . . . before the commercials that begin at the movie's published "start" time * cell phones ringing * inability to use your own cell phone if necessary * inability to rewind and see or hear something again
How can Netflix compete with that?
And if you don't go to the theater then YOU are having a negative impact on the reproductive opportunities for bed bugs.
