    Its the name I hate! I know it dont make any difference in what it does, but I think they couldve come up with a better name. Now for years to come everyone here will be saying "Roamio Roamio" :eek:

    The base model has a smaller form factor.

    The two buttons between the thumbs down & up are Mute & Rec

    It doesn't appear to be the same Slide remote. The big button below the directional pad appears to say Guide. The question now is what's the small button between the Volume and Input on the new one. (Zoom looks like it was moved to the right.)

    Edit: It says Back. :)

    Do you know does the smaller one use an external power supply?

    cnet is the first to break the embargo: http://news.yahoo.com/video/tivos-latest-dvr-goes-whole-153646182-cbs.html

    Wow... the interface is fast fast fast!

    Built in WiFi! on all Models!
    Newest versions of Netflix and YouTube apps are preloaded
    And... wait for it... HTML 5 is now available as an app platform! Netflix and YouTube already using it, but no word on if the entire interface has been moved over or if this is only for the OTT apps.
    What to Watch Now, similar to the iPhone/iPad app
    Built in streaming on the Plus and Tivo is planning on outside the home streaming as well
    Internal power supplies on at least the Plus and Pro, no word on the OTA model

    It looks fast, but tough to really judge until full drives and multiple recordings.

    HTML5 platform?

    It says Back per the Cnet video. Maybe instead of left now you hit back to go back a screen?

    Now that it is official. We may want to start a new thread with the official name.

    HTML 5 as in no longer Flash, that's HUGE and will do wonders for the performance and frequency of app updates. Now we get updates as fast as YouTube and Netflix can pump them out.

    I'll have to say it looks like a Premiere box with a new faceplate on it, but it does look nice. I do like the new remote as well, it looks a bit shorter and fatter. Someone needs to buy one now and tell us all about it :p

    I think that is just the apps though. Hopefully not, but will need to wait probably for answers on that.

    Yeah, I mentioned that in my first post, I'm pretty sure it's just the apps as well. Still, will go a long ways to speed things up, both in performance and update frequency. Netflix and YouTube can auto update on the fly without involving TiVo at all.

    No the Account page is still down. You get a 404 if you click My Account. Wait until that page is up.

    John's...
    Definitely no built-in MOCA on the 4 tuner model. Plus, I'm a bit peeved by this in the FAQ:

    Have the FCC regulations on CableCARD self-install been rescinded?
