Not sure I am ready to cut the cord but I share your frustration with DTV. Their equipment locks up, loses connection with the video bridge and turns smart TV's on when you don't want them to. I looked at my bill last month and it was $225. I just have not found much that would work well for 8 televisions.

EXACTLY! I too use the Whole Home Genie setup with 6 TVs. I was told this was the max?

But yeah... I've just about had enough. But I need a reliable recording of TV first....

Not sure why anyone would want or need to record from a streaming source, but TiVo can record OTA if you have reception where you live.

If you're an Amazon Prime member, and use any of their Fire TV devices, there's the Fire TV Recast.

This channel selector makes it easier:
https://www.suppose.tv/tv

Pick the stuff you like to watch and leave out the stuff you don't...if you end up finding a package, or combination of packages, that will end up saving you money/frustration, great! If not, at least you'll reassure yourself that it isn't time yet.

Really?

How about when we're not at home??? I absolutely must have a way to record Live TV because everything, particularly local programming are not streamed.

My comment is questioning why anyone would need to record from a streaming source. I wasn't envisioning streaming live TV, I was questioning why anyone would record a source available anytime via streaming. I then acknowledged that people might want to record live TV; for that I suggested going OTA with a TiVo.

Cut the cord a couple of years ago. Use a Roku box since the Apple Tv blew up a couple of months ago. Either one works fine, Netflix and Amazon Prime we pay for.

To me an OTA HD antenna is an essential part of cutting the cord... That is assuming you're in an area that provides reception. I'm surprised not one person has mentioned it yet. 🤷🏻*♂️
