OK, since sbiller brought up the idea - let's see what we get from the results.

This is just meant for fun, BTW.

Until they stop requiring a Tuning Adapter for SDV, they can call it "fuggit-about-it".

I don't hate the name, but I definitely expect some form of roaming option with it.

I won't be surprised when it isn't there either.

I hope it's just an internal code name, its really doesn't work for me. (But I'm not currently planning to upgrade from my Elite)

I'm between dislike/don't care. It wouldn't be a choice I'd pick from a list. But I really just want a good, snappy box again.

I'd be happier if they called it Bugfree (and actually meant it :-).

Yes, like built-in stream. My first thought when seeing that name was that it implied integrated stream capabilities.

Maybe - if it had built in Sling type cabability. Moving content around the home doesn't make it a "Roaming" device.

I guess that depends on perspective. I think being able to carry an iPad to the kitchen, back porch, etc. is letting me 'roam' around the house to locations where I don't have a tv would certainly qualify.

I think it's a stupid name, but don't really care if that's what they decide to call it I'll just refer to it as the S5.

But not all three models are rumored to have that functionality.

The shorter the name the better, and also the greater the likelihood I would want to buy it. Longer names often indicate suck factor. S5? Okay, we all get it.

S5 Basic
S5 Advanced
S5 Super

Elite was an add-on like the Plus or Pro. It was technically called a Premiere Elite.

I'll believe the name is for real when the unit is actually for sale and I can see for myself. I voted I don't care what they call it, just bring it.

Whatever name they decide on, they will just change it six months later to further confuse people.

Am I the only person who thinks the Mini will become "Juliet"?

I doubt it. In fact I still think this is a code name and not the name of the actual product.

I was leaning that way too until I saw it listed in TiVo's FCC documents. Hm.

I don't care what they name this thing, as long as Fall 2013 doesn't turn into Winter 2014 which then turns into Spring 2014.

Interesting... TiVo hasn't even announced a product yet and certainly hasn't given a date. We are only looking at rumors and guesses at this point.

They do, at the least, need to stay away from the Premiere name again to avoid confusion.

As long as whatever the official name isthat they stick with it. And not change the name several months later.

The name is fine, the unit looks fine. No issues.

It works great, and I hear they are selling more Roamios than any time since the days of DirecTiVo.
