How curved is the top of the Basic?

I currently have my TiVoHD at the bottom of a stack of boxes (TiVo, blu-ray player, Cisco 1520 T/A). Does the Basic have to be at the top of a stack now? If so this complicates deployment.

IMHO the plastic's too thin to put anything heavier than a Roku/ATV on top.

Everything wants to be on top. It's annoying as ****.

The good thing is, the Roamio is small enough that you might be able to place it somewhere that no other TiVo would fit. In my case, I had a 22" LCD resting on top a Series 3 OLED. I now have the Roamio sitting in front of the TV, on the same platform. It's low enough that it doesn't block it and shallow enough that they can both fit.

I couldn't agree more. It is like these damn "mini" components that are all NON STANDARD SIZE. Everything is SUPPOSED TO BE 16 INCHES. UG

I was trying to find a reasonably priced DVD and/or Bluray player a while ago and gave up- it is as if everything made now is a toy.

I was able to relocate the T/A (which is too small to put anything on top of it) on the floor, underneath the lower shelf. Now I should be able to put the Basic on top of the blu-ray player since it's a lot smaller in footprint than the HD.

Bottom or top, just not in the middle.
