    I am sure glad that me and my wife have very similar viewing tastes, so one Roamio Plus and a mini work out really good. There are only a few shows that I like and she doesn't, or vice-versa.

    My wife watches mostly reality TV. Everything from Real Housewives, to Teen Mom, to the Amazing Race. I can't stand any of it. We have a core set of shows we watch together and we record those on my TiVo. But all the crap she watches by herself is on her own TiVo.

    I will tell you I did the same thing…

    We had two Tivo HD's in our family room. One for me and one for the Mrs. I liked that my tivo was "smart" and knew me. :)

    It knew my shows and I didn't want hers shows tainting my tivo's thinking.

    Even had to get an elaborate switcher system that I spent hundreds on to route both tiros' property at the push of a button.

    Well, we moved and I did my setup again in the family room with both tivo hd's

    but in this house we both tend to watch TV more in our very large kitchen. I was shocked at how well the tivo balanced recording for both of us.

    There was always an equal mix of my crap and her crap. suggestions/recordings everything.

    The one tivo did a great job. So….

    I got the roamio and sold all the tivo's and I let it record everything for all of us… it wasn't a difficult transition at all.

    Just something to keep in mind.

    We may move to just a Premiere in the family room, Roamio in the theater and possibly Mini's in the bedrooms. But I do have to confirm, the Mini will run it's own Netflix client, correct?

    Don't you lose live cable on the Roamio doing that though? You could always start a recording to watch it live I guess, but it seems like sort of a PITA. The elegance of the Roamio is having one central box that rules them all.

    Is there an option to list the other TiVo's on the network at the TOP of the list? I know I can tap the skip to end button, but at the top would be more frequent and convenient to easily call up the other box (or boxes) on the network.
