If all the other speculation is wrong this is the one thing that will happen. The Mini uses a chip which is much faster then the current Premiere units. The companion chip to the one in the Mini, the one designed for a full blown DVR, is even faster still. I expect the UI to be much snappier in the next gen hardware. In fact if I'm right I might upgrade my Elite to a new unit just for that. Even if all other features are exactly the same.
