    No. Uverse is pure IPTV and is based on a Microsoft platform. This box is QAM/cable, even the IP stuff is picked up via it's internal cable modem. Physically it couldn't connect to Uverse, not to mention the software.

    I wonder if it's intended to be user removable, or for easy servicing. Maybe TiVo OS is stored in flash? How does the HDMI input work? Seems like a pretty cool DVR.

    It even has a clock!

    So am I to assume this will be working with TiVo Minis?

    Or the (MSO-only) TiVo Previews. Not clear which.

    The most important news in this announcement to the larger TiVo community is that TiVo has deployed a version of their software that runs on the Broadcom BCM 7425.

    I would think that one that use the TiVo software would likely have the TiVo logo on it. Why is everyone so hung-up on having clock?

    For me, I don't like having a clock since just about every device already has a clock. one button press and I can see the timeon my TiVo.
    I guess as long as there is a way to turn off the display, I'm not opposed to it though.

    We have a large analog atomic clock hanging behind the TV so I have no need for a clock on any of my devices.

    Can anybody explain how the extra QAM tuners make channel changing faster? Though one clever thing I can think of would be that you tune the tuners to one ABOVE and one BELOW in your channel list (i.e. not absolute channel #s) from the "current tuner". So then if you hit channel up or down, you simply make that new tuner your "CURRENT" tuner.

    Though then channel up/down is now a lot faster than typing in a channel #.... and inconsistency is often worse than slow overall.

    Exactly as you describe. The extra QAM tuners tune the channel above and below the current channel. It seems like this would be an issue with CableCARD since CC only support six channel decryption.

    So why would you need the channels above and below tuned? Only if someone actually channel surfs. I will guide surf but never channel surf.

    Its probably because even Tivo users use live TV more than they watch recorded programs. The TC survey on that was very enlightening, though I have little clue why folks do that, the fact is, they do.

    My guess is that some of the time people sit down in front of a TV to mindlessly waste time not because they want to watch a specific show.

    My Sister and her family do that. I have not watched live TV in a couple years, and even then it was because a live news event was happening and I wanted to see what's going on. If I want to waste time and I have nothing recorded I read a book, play on my iPad, play video games, watch a movie, etc... I never waste time watching whatever is on right now.

    The Premieres could connect to U-Verse if AT&T let them and put in the right bridges in software (and HPNA to Ethernet for installation). It's all over IP with MPEG-4, both of which would work fine on a TiVo Premiere.

    There are still people stuck in 1999 like my dad, who channel surfs and refuses to guide surf like any civilized person would.
