First it will have stream built in, so no longer will an extra box be required. Second, that internal stream function will allegedly allow you to download shows remotely with a software update later this year. So, that begs some important questions: 1. If you buy a roamio, will you still need a stram for other tivos on your network. My guess is that you will still need a stream for non-roamio devices 2. Will the download outside of your network functionality work with stream with that software update? My guess is no, but there is a possibility.... Oh, and still no mention of android support. That is becoming an embarrassment at this point.
