    My Roamio is fast. And I'm a demanding user. It's a very rare occasion when the response isn't instantaneous.

    When I first added the Mini, it said something like "you can only use a Mini with the HDUI interface, do you want to change?". There was no option given.

    Then once I did that, next was the "and you lose a tuner too. Ok?".

    It might start to do something instantly (thank God), but it doesn't FINISH it instantly. What holds up performance now are the unnecessary animated transitions- they are just too slow. They were "cute" for about 10 minutes, many years ago. Now they just slow down my navigation. ERRRRRG.

    I moved up from TiVo HDs, skipping the last gen. In just 4 days with Roamio, I've made the decision to change out the remaining boxes to Minis. I'm glad I skipped the last couple of generations, and hope this box lasts quite a while. I just realized today that I've had the THDs for 6 years!

    Transferring content from my mostly full THD to my Elite took about 3 days. At least that's what it seemed like since I saw the blue light for 3 straight days. Each transfer was only about 30-32Mbps even with tuner parking on both boxes. :(

    Transferring from my Elite to my Roamio was actually quite fast. But transferring from my Wife's 2 tuner Premiere to the Elite was a bit slow. Although I started using the Roamio immediately and transferred things as I went, so it may have felt faster because I wasn't in a hurry. With the Wife's TiVo I was trying to get done in a certain window so that I could catch a time when she wasn't recording to swap them out.

    Roamios don't lose a tuner when you add a Mini. They have dynamic tuner allocation. Was that question from the Mini or from the Roamio?

    There was a post I was replying to that was not in your reply/quote. In it we were talking about an Elite.
