TiVo showed something at the cable show back in June where their UI was in a web browser. I wonder if this is what "CloudTV H5" is?
My interest was piqued when I read the "Roku" comment!
That could be something similar to how Slingbox does it via web that TiVo may offer as a feature.

Yeah that was the thing I was talking about. Forgot what it was called. Apparently it was exactly this that they showed at the cable show.
I think this is probably not the technology TiVo would leverage for their "TiVoToGo Cloud Service". ActiveVideo actually renders everything in the Cloud and just streams video including the UI directly from the Cloud. TiVo has been talking up their investment in "Cloud technology" for quite some time during their investor calls so I think the personal cloud stuff will be the first retail reflection of that investment. The ActiveVideo stuff is what Charter is considering moving to in order to light-up legacy set-top boxes with a more modern UI/Ux.
The UI in a browser would be wonderful, especially if I could connect to the TiVo directly over the network with a web browser in order to control the thing. Then TiVo wouldn't need separate apps for every platform, you'd just use a web browser (which would mean it would work on linux and windows too, not just android and ios).
