Well then lets hope they can cram some awesome new stuff into the Roamio over the next year.
This was the year after though. The first year they had a bunch of quick updates which were expected, but then the second year they continued. This is when they started posting in the TiVo Blog talking about what was in the update, what was coming next, etc.
Then it all stopped.
Yeah it was nice back in the day when we had TiVo reps hanging out on the forum and telling us what was coming down the pipe.
Wasn't it? One of them gave me a lifetime on a DirecTiVo box back in the day, because.. you know, I can't remember why he did it now. Been too many years.
When was The TiVo HD officially released (I know sometime between the S3 and Premiere)? That's missing.
One could also wonder if TiVo might do a similar lower-cost release of a Roamio Plus/Pro, if they find the sales are sluggish, due to price...
They could do something like take out the wireless daughterboard, and other cost saving parts, and have a Roamio "budget" with 6 tuners...
Yep, check out some of these HTML5 "couch friendly" URLs... more to follow, I'm sure.
This thread has the developer of PyTiVo adding a command for opening URLs on the TiVo...
And here's discussion of it in kmttg:
(and my interest in the Roamio just skyrocketed)
Don't like. I have retained recordings on my TiVo from premium channels from which I stop subscribing months ago.
The TiVoHD was actually a S3, so it wasn't a new series. It was released less then a year after the original S3. They did this because the original S3 was way to expensive ($799) and sales were suffering. The TiVo HD was a cheaper entry ($299) into the HD universe.
They did a similar thing with the S2 units with the 540 series. However they used completely different hardware then their predecessors and could have actually been considered a new series. TiVo simply chose not to designate them that way. Probably because they were total pieces of crap that were poorly made and actually slower then their predecessors in every way. The Premiere is known for being slow as crap at running the HDUI, but if you compare it to a S3 running the SDUI it is superior in every way. The 540 series S2 units were actually worse at everything compared to the 140 and 240 series S2 units that came before them. They were so cheaply made they even had a little TiVo sticker on the front that was natorious for curling up and falling off.
Angry Birds on my Roku (with the Bluetooth remote, which has a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope) is actually my favorite version of the game. I don't think it needs all that much horsepower. But it's all about UI, and the remote controller on that game is perfect for it.
This was discussed in another thread (the concept of a cloud DVR). And while we're just one forum of advanced users, the consensus was this would be a no-go from the get-go. I want my recordings on my DVR.
And if they just TAG content, then that's just VOD. And there is no way, at this point in time, content creators are going to allow VOD without their piece of the pie. Look at how much is NOT available via VOD. They won't simply allow the MOS to provide it as if it was recorded.
I got my Launch TiVoHD in Summer 2007. It was late July or early August.
I can't remember the last update. Used to be every few months.
One of the changes I suspect will be added in the future is replacing the 802.11n with 802.11ac.
It won't make any difference to me, since I am hard wired, but it could make a big difference for people who have to use wireless.
Wireless ac to Ethernet bridge?
Wifi to ethernet bridge could be added via software but its not really of much value.
Huh? The box already has ethernet and 802.11n.
A hardware update would be required for 802.11ac.
I've had my Roamio Basic (with upgraded drive) running for a week now. This weekend I swapped it to the main TV. So far, it has been performing very well. It is a great upgrade from the TiVoHD!
For anyone who has a Roamio and a Premiere, is it worth the upgrade? Are all the menus finally HD? I stopped following Tivo when they kept missing promises (like all HD menus and both cores activated to speed up UI).
No, all the menus are not HD, however, the menus I use the most, are.
