    OK. That helps. Confirmation is always good. Thank you.

    Yeah, I just heard the same thing last night over my analog TV connection ;)

    The industry does need to do something because they recognize that the internet is quickly consuming their market. People are cutting the cable (no pun intended) because of the cost/lock in that these companies employ.

    I don't think the answer is tivo long term (that becomes a double edged sword for them...) but something will rise from the ashes of all of this. Then it will all splinter again. It's a pretty standard cycle.

    This is seriously OT (read the thread title), can we please keep this kind of completely OT discussion out of this thread? Thanks.

    When TiVo does release the Mini, then we should start another Thread call something like TiVo released the Mini and information about ways to purchase.

    I don't mean to sound disrespectful or anything, but isn't the thread title in and of itself off-topic?

    We can't pre-order.
    We can't review something we don't have.
    We can't have any tips because no one has one yet because they can't even sell them.

    :D

    I have to agree. Until it's actually available there is no need for an on topic pre-order thread. Threads have a tendency to wander off topic even when the primary topic is something people can actually discuss. Trying to create a placeholder for something that hasn't even happened yet is just asking for trouble. :)

    Man, I got screwed twice today. No TiVo Mini, and nowhere near the amount of snow that they were calling for in my area. At least I didn't have a strike out. Roku came through on the release of the Roku 3 today.

    I make amazing homemade pizza. I find that the perfect method is prebaking the homemade crust for a bit first with the sauce on it, then taking it out of the oven and allowing it to cool, then adding the cheese, then finishing cooking until the cheese starts to brown. Anybody else have a suggestion?

    Thanks.

    P.S. - Don't overdo it with the oregano.

    (Just kidding, everyone relax!)

    It is probably worth mentioning that I called TiVo to order a mini, just to see what would happen and on the 2nd call, the sales agent said that although the launch was today, it got pushed back for unknown reasons.

    When I asked about when we might be able to order, she stated that if it's not tomorrow, it'll be within the next few weeks.

    Well maybe there is a store out there that will still put them out for sale by mistake?

    Very possible the marketing people didn't want to go head to head with Roku. To Joe public there's plenty of confusion over a Tivo mini that streams programming and a Roku 3 . . . that steams programming.
