    The ATV4 doesn't either. There are some DVR solutions "coming soon", but even so I don't think you'll be able to just hook up a hard drive. I guess time will tell.

    I wouldn't know, don't have one. The reviews on Amazon are not promising. It's comical how even the four star reviews list a litany of problems (why the heck did they rate it four stars with all those problems???).

    Hard to judge on future projects, but TiVo may be working on a Tablo like device:

    After I got burned on a simple.tv device, I switched to an OTA roamio (which I found out can be hacked into a cablecard compatible model by transplanting a missing bracket from another TiVo.)

    Silicondust also has a system in beta, it is more of a roll your own DVR.

    Half those Reviews are Fake! The only problem I see is people tend to get the two runner version and not the 4 tuner version or the person is an audio file and complain it's not 7.1 or something like that line!

    Here is great Apple TV 4 Tablo review:
