    A lot of people hated the TiVo name when it came out too. I do think the Roaming capability is a great feature though. IF they can pull it off elegantly I can see using that quite a bit at Hotels and such.

    The poll is from Tivo's POV. You don't hate it. YOu are just confused for the time being.

    This...I wouldn't say I'm confused; I understand why they named it that. But I still hate the name.

    ...and this. I've heard it billed as a Sling-slayer. But it's definitely not...I'll keep my Slingbox Pro and enjoy content on my MacBook Pro or Mac Mini....

    There is some speculation that a PC based streaming client is also in the works. In fact they showed a system at the cable show where the whole UI, including streaming, were working in a browser. So if they release that to the public then it could very well be a sling slayer. Because you could then watch your TiVo shows on any device with a browser.

    The confusion option is the hate option put a bit nicer.

    You: I hate it!

    TiVo: It is ok. You are just confused still. You just need some rest. You will feel better tomorrow.

    And they also showed it playing on the Roku, so there could be your "slingcatcher" solution as well, or even dare we say, a mini replacement?!?!?!
