    The only time, in my use, that the slower speeds from the Roamio Basic has come into play is when I want to transfer several shows to it and I have limited time because I need to take the box to my GFs house. Since it's almost half as slow to the Roamio Basic it takes almost twice as long. Which isn't really a big deal unless I'm pressed for time. If I transfer the content the night before, like I should do, there is no issue.

    In normal use if I want to transfer something from my TiVo Desktop machine to my Roamio Basic, I just hit transfer and start watching right away. I would think my situation where I carry my Roamio Basic with me is not the norm for most people.

    I really wanted the basic to have gigabit connection. I didn't expect it to do anything better than my Premiere. I had a two hour program in the TiVo desktop that I wanted on the Roamio. I had setup a new gigabit network and put an adapter on my non gig PC and started to transfer the show to the Roamio. It went over in about 25 minutes. That was good enough for me. The Stream has always done its job. I have watched a recorded show on the Premiere while sending it to two iphones and an iPad at the same time without any issues. I was trying to see if my router would go out before the Stream.
