    Tivo.com indicates that the 4 tuner Roamio has a cablecard slot, yet I cannot see a slot in either the external or internal photos of the 4 tuner model.

    Does it have a cablecard slot? A comparison table on tivo.com shows all three Roamios as Fios compatible and all three as cablecard compatible.

    :eek:WOW!! I didn't realize the Romaio was so small. There is barely enough depth for the cable card.

    Thank you! I was getting ready to post the same question when this thread popped up on the "similar threads" warning. The Tivo website is vague on it's location, and no Google photos show where it is.
