Used Premier vs Mini as a Roamio companion
I think people have an interesting option when choosing a companion device for their new Roamio TiVo.
They of course could select a TiVo Mini for $250 or purchase a used lifetime Premier for around $350.
Yes the premier has the slower UI, requires a cable card and probably won't get any of the new over the top applications.
But the Premiers have extra tuners, their own space, full TiVo app integration, and works well streaming in both directions.
I am not really asking if you would keep an existing Premier, I am asking if you would purposefully purchase a premier for a second or third TV.
What do you think? With the used Premier market, is this a viable option for you?
