    Though the SD UI is a lot faster… That's one reason some use the SD UI. (I admit I'm mostly living in the HD UI nowadays, even though I'd far prefer the speed of the SD UI, and dislike many of the bugs that exist in the HD UI -- no channel up/down conveniences that exist in lots of places in SD, lack of clipping indicators in to do, etc..)

    The HDUI is a LOT faster on the Mini so speed shouldn't be much of a concern.

    Quick tidbit. So I hooked up a hdmi splitter since my tv only has one port and I have two devices, blu ray player and the mini. After hooking it up to splitter the mini defaulted to a resolution of 480p. Which is PERFECT since this is a old style HDTV . So now I get the Hd menus but since it thinks it isn't a HDTV...it covers up the whole screen with no letter boxing.

    Yes! I'm happy. Now to get the stupid Cable I need for audio...

    Agreed, but the SDUI is a discontinued interface so might as well move on up. :)

    The HDUI on my original 2 tuner Premiere is decent, NOTHING like it was when the box shipped. I can only imagine how fast it is on the Mini, with the upgraded SoC.

    I can assure you that the next generation TiVo DVR will not come with SDUI support in any fashion. The TP was the middle generation to bridge the gap, the stragglers will not have an option on the next generation of TiVo products.

    I agree. Other than needing the SDUI for technical reasons (old TV) there's no reason you would "want" to use the HDUI on the Mini, it is very fast with the HD menus.
