I've read several other threads I've found and unfortunately they were very unhelpful. I don't want roamio cheerleading. Roamio is over better. I get that. My question is, for my purpose, why is it better? I get the speed factor. However the overall speed between the two seems to be very slight, only a few seconds. Netflix is a huge speed difference between the two, but I currently have 3 different ways to enter netflix, my tv itself, my blu-ray, and my xbox. And frankly if netflix opened too fast I'd probably freak I'm used to it being slow. My current blu-ray is how I generally use it and it does so in about 10-12 seconds or so. I am planning to upgrade though to an oppo and I don't know how fast it operates. Pretty much I watch very little tv. The Walking Dead, The Good Wife, Game of Thrones. The other shows I was watching seem to have been axed. I expect that might change once I go Tivo again, I used to work for them and at the time I watched almost no tv. That changed drastically with the addition of tivo. However, At the moment I have no TV reception, I am on the fence between OTA and cable. If I'm just going to use it for OTA programming or basic cable overall, Is there any reason other than a slight difference in speed for the menus? Does the Newer tivo remotes allow for multi device programming? I would like to control my TV, Cable (if I get it), Blu-ray, and theater with 1 remote, which is why I am looking at logitech. I will likely get another lifetime account as I had on my series 1. I already have a tv, blu-ray, and xbox that all get netflix. The TV and Blu-ray both do amazon prime, which I've used -once- and Vudu which I really only use at friends or relatives, I already own the discs. The Bedroom TVs are used very seldom. So without going into a cheerleading for the roamio, pros and cons between the Premeire and Roamio The Premiere I am looking at gets ota, 1080p HD, 75 hours HD, Works with the tivo app, and has netflix, huluplus, amazon direct (Which I guess is different from Amazon prime... wth). It's the TCD746500. 98.00 for premiere, 175 for the roamio. What does the other 77 bucks get me?
