    I was in Best Buy today and saw a tivo mini in a light lime green box. Is that a new hardware revision for the tivo mini?

    Maybe Roamio-styled packaging means Roamio-styled remote included?

    So at what point will they start including Roamio style remotes?

    Who knows? It's pure speculation that the Mini IR remote will be changed to the Roamio style. TiVo isn't known for making the best business decisions but I would think when ever they use up existing inventory levels to a certain point. Then they might not do anything however having a single common remote control has been a sucess both from support and from marketing imprinting as everyone knows the family peanut shape remote control blogs to TiVo.

    From TiVo and Zatsnotfunny websites and posts here from users talking to TiVo CSR's, there are major things and changes happening next month so who knows, we shall just have to wait a little longer.

    Next thing we'll hear is that TiVo has been sold. That would be a major change.

    Awesome. Personally I would love to see a refresh of the Stream packaging to groovify it like they did the Mini. Not sure swapping out new remotes with the Mini or repackaging would qualify as part of the "major changes" being hinted at, but you're right that only time will tell :up:

    No, that's not it. Apparently our poor little TiVo friend has contracted "Lime" Disease! :eek: :(

    Whoa :( I've had that a few times with that dang red ring. Kinda screwed myself over because I was given medication for it but it said I couldn't be out in the sun, but it was the summertime and my job required me to be out in the sun at 10 hours at a time during a heat wave. (Six Flags Security at the main gate metal detectors). Anyway I meant no disrespect and wish you continued good health.
