    I moved over about 2 weeks ago after about 6 years away from Tivo. I have Roamio Plus with two minis. So far I am loving it. The interface is silky smooth and its wife/kid approved. My install went quickly even with a cabled card and tuning adapter and it all "just works". My wife mentioned that she misses having the commercials chopped out but that a small nit.

    These may be features that I just don't know about, but I would have three asks to make my situation perfect....
    1) Allow the mini to initiate a pull of video from Tivo Desktop
    2) Some easy way to get my videos with DTS or 7.1 transferred to the roamio
    3) Remote finders on the mini's

    I can answer one for sure. If you buy the remote slide pro for the premiere, you get the usb dongle which has a remote finder button on it.

    Do you know of any place to get these for $50. Tivo seems to be out of stock (I see Weaknees has them for $80 - seems like a big jump in price over what Tivo has listed...).

    No, it looks like WeaKnees is the only other place (at this time) carrying it. I guess it will be awhile before they start showing up on eB*y and retail outlets.

    I called Tivo a couple of weeks ago and was told they will get them in stock again but they have no idea when.

    He's talking about the dongle for the new RF Slide Pro remote for use with Premiere's. I think you're talking about the old Bluetooth Slide Remote dongle, which is now discontinued.
