    Many posts refer to the Roamio without telling us what model they are talking about so I would suggest the following abbreviations, (others can suggest other Abbreviations if you don't like what I am proposing)

    Roamio basic with 4 tuners and a .5Tb drive TR-4

    Roamio Plus with 6 tuners and a 1Tb drive TR-6

    Roamio Pro with 6 tuners and a 3Tb drive TR-6P

    What's wrong with just "basic", "plus" and "pro"?

    Basic and Plus remind me of the service options on my old Toshiba TX20! :D

    But can this group live with the above abbreviations, makes talking about the Roamio much easier.

    No one is ever going to conform to some "rule" about what to call them. These seem like the most logical options people will most likely use, but who knows where we eventually land. The Premiere is regularly called Premiere, S4, XL4, 2 tuner, 4 tuner, etc... I'm sure we'll see a similar spread of references to the Roamio.

    The way the models are now, basic, plus and pro are clear. No need to complicate it further.

    Might as well make it official and call them:

    TCD846500
    TCD848000
    TCD840300

    We don't want to confuse anyone with easier to read, shorter and more logical names now do we?
