    We are incredibly proud of our new Roamio, and the designers and engineers that made it happen. We made this fun and silly video to celebrate:

    Thank you for all the support you've shown. I've passed along many of your comments to the team. (We also appreciate the troubleshooting details many of you have provided!)

    It is a delight to have customers as passionate about the product as we are.

    Is there a checkbox that someone forgot about? From an android, all I see is:

    "The content owner has not made this video available on mobile."

    Yes, I saw this error when trying to view on my iPad last night too. As mentioned, this is a simple settings change that TiVo needs to make on their Youtube account, so that those with mobile devices can view the video.

    P.S. Video was fun and congratulations to TiVo on pushing a real winner out the door... now just be sure to support it (including network switches) for the next couple of years with updates and new features.

    Outside...
    It's not available on mobile because the video contains a Michael Bublé track, and the copyright holder of the track has disallowed its use on mobile YouTube videos. TiVo likely didn't obtain specific distribution rights for this one-off celebratory video, and so probably there is not even an option available in the YouTube Video Manager for them change.

    That's probably the issue. Bummer!

    OK just watched on my PC. One thing that struck me... TiVo's engineering staff is really small.

    Edit: Didn't mean that to be so negative. Roamio is a great product. :up: I was simply surprised by the size of the engineering staff.

    Because the Premiere did not get positive press or great reviews at the time of its launch would be my guess. This video is celebratory of the fact that the Roamio is getting what I would call "gushing" reviews from a lot of respected tech pundits.

    Amazon seems to have a hard time keeping the base Roamio in stock .... I would say that's a good indicator of how the products being received in the market.

    Good job to all involved !

    What struck me is that everyone at TiVo needs to either get glasses or have their prescription checked. Those fonts were HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE!

    Great job with the Roamios guys! Please take a well-earned round of high fives.:up:

    This new four OTA tuner device is a distinct step up from my OLED Series 3 TiVo. Job well done.:D

    Definitely cool to put faces to some familiar names. Enjoy it Tivo folks; Roamio is great.
