    If you have more than one home the cloud may have some advantages as does the cloud does for people with more than one computer, that why Windows 8.1 has the cloud built in, but if you don't need the cloud than there are many disadvantages in using it. The smart phone is another good reason for the cloud if you travel.

    That's the point, with all the stuff in the cloud, you have no exceptations of privacy. Those that run the cloud have access to your data, government can access it and there is the distinct possiblity that it can and will be hacked by malicious people.

    Like the new IOS iPhone with the latest IOS, if synced to the Apple cloud, that device is permanently assigned to the orginal owner unless you use third party hacks to jailbreak it which then you can't easily run apps like the Tivo app.

    Cloud bad, No cloud for me Thank you!

    I bought my Roamio Plus, then 2 minis a day apart from each other at Best Buy. I have the 20.00 warranty from Best Buy on one of the receipts but they dont have the TSN or any type of serial number on it. Who's to say which Mini has the warranty and which doesnt, truth be told I dont know which is which :)
