    I was in Best Buy today and they actually had a base roamio setup on display.

    I must say the demo was totally lame and whomever at Tivo headquarters designed the setup should be fired. The roamio was in a mode where all you were able to do was play 4 or 5 short video clips through a single menu which had several entries which were linked to playing these short video clips. I mean the video clips were maybe 30 seconds long at best.

    No cable nor antenna was hooked up.
    No live tv.
    No channel changing.
    No EPG was avaliable to schedule recordings.
    No NPL was avaliable with recorded content.
    No IP based services.

    No DVR capability at all is presented to a potential customer!

    Lame & Sad at the same time.

    Come on Tivo. I thought you actually wanted to sell these things.

    The Tivo may be in "Showroom" mode.
