Abbreviations we should use for Roamio

Many posts refer to the Roamio without telling us what model they are talking about so I would suggest the following abbreviations, (others can suggest other Abbreviations if you don't like what I am proposing)

Roamio basic with 4 tuners and a .5Tb drive TR-4

Roamio Plus with 6 tuners and a 1Tb drive TR-6

Roamio Pro with 6 tuners and a 3Tb drive TR-6P

What's wrong with just "basic", "plus" and "pro"?

Basic and Plus remind me of the service options on my old Toshiba TX20!

No one is ever going to conform to some "rule" about what to call them. These seem like the most logical options people will most likely use, but who knows where we eventually land. The Premiere is regularly called Premiere, S4, XL4, 2 tuner, 4 tuner, etc... I'm sure we'll see a similar spread of references to the Roamio.

The way the models are now, basic, plus and pro are clear. No need to complicate it further.

Might as well make it official and call them:

TCD846500
TCD848000
TCD840300

We don't want to confuse anyone with easier to read, shorter and more logical names now do we?

(:P)

It's not a bad idea. And I think most people will probably use the Basic, Plus, Pro designations anyway. I just don't think enough people will read this thread for their to be an official agreement.
