    I know the TiVo Mini can't interact at all with a Series 3 since its basically a streaming device and the Series 3 are "transfer" only type devices. I have a few lifetime Series 3 and can they still interact somewhat (aka..."multi room transfer" recorded shows) with the new Roamios?

    Yes. Roamios still support the old transfer protocol so you can still copy stuff from the S3 to the Roamio provided it's not protected.

    What about from a hacked S3?

    If you can transfer S3 to S3 then you can transfer S3 to Roamio. That part of the software has not changed. If the hacking somehow prevents that then it would most likely still apply to the Roamio as well.

    Same restriction with MPEG4 recording's in the other direction I bet, right?

    Probably. I think if you try to transfer an MPEG4 show from a Premiere to a S3 it just fails. So the same will apply to the Roamio.

    In my experience that is what happens (XL4 to S3).

    Yep, transferring all my old shows off a Series 3 as we speak. Then i'm replacing the Series 3 with a Mini.
