http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/08/tivo-mini-extender-hands-on/ Since I have been feeling in a contrary mood lately - and aparently haven't already stirred the pot enough... I have another thought. I was reading this article on Engadget for the TiVo Mini. I do love the idea of the Mini and I think we will all agree that dynamic tuner allocation is going to be the driving feature. And according the the article it is coming: At launch, the Mini will take over one of the four tuners of the XL4 if you want to watch live TV on it, but dynamic tuner allocation is on the road map But I had a sinking feeling as I was answering another post this morning. Is it possible that the road map for dynamic tuner allocation exists only in the next platform upgrade? Is that an S5 feature only? Dave Z brought up an interesting thought about the current sales and what could easily be inventory reduction strategies... What do you guys think?
