    Does anyone know if the UI on the Mini will be upgraded to look like the Roamio?

    I would like the look of everything to be consistent throughout the house (will have a total of 4 Minis).

    I'm sure it will, but probably not immediately. I think they're working on a software update for the Mini and Premiere units right now. Not sure when it will be released though. Might be weeks or it could be the "Fall" update they've mentioned a few times.

    The UI really isn't that different. From what I've seen it's just got a slightly darker background and a yellow highlight bar rather then the old "blue wiener".

    I wonder if the new UI is implemented in HTML5 instead of Flash?

    I doubt it. It would be a lot of work to port all that Flash code over to HTML5, and based on the speed they've been developing the Flash UI I think that would take many years to accomplish.

    I think Zatz asked TiVo and they said someday, but no official timing.
