    Perhaps, but Roku obviously has a different business model then TiVo. As similar as the hardware is between a Roku and a Mini they are intended for very different purposes. Roku makes most of it's money from subscription sharing deals with the services it offers apps for.

    That being said at the cable show in June TiVo showed a demo of a TiVo UI, complete with video streaming, running on a Roku so maybe some day you'll be able to actually choose between a Roku and a Mini for a second room. Although the Roku would likely require the Stream hardware, for H.264 transcoding, so the experience would probably be more like the iPad app then the Mini. But maybe that's enough for you?

    I was asking a question because I don't know much about the Roku.

    The Roku compares more to an Apple TV than a Tivo or a Tivo Mini.

    Doesn't matter what your intent was. TC25D will decide your intent for you and give you the "obvious" answer.

    Tsk, tsk, getting challenged on your thread complaining about the cost of a Mini results in insults. How mature.
