For me they've done what I wanted already. Put in a faster processor and created usable apps.
Dan, Dan, Dan...are you really going to let TiVo let you down with another "will happen?"

Lucy promised that she wouldn't yank the ball this time, Charlie Brown.

I'm sure that the usable HD UI on my Premiere "will happen," too.

A usable HDUI is not a "will happen" for the Roamio, it's a reality. There are some promised features that I'm looking forward to, but the main reason I'm buying a Roamio is because of the faster UI. The Elite is frustratingly slow, and Roamio fixes that with raw horsepower. That in itself is enough for me to spend the money. Anything else that comes along down the road is a bonus, but I'm not holding my breath.

My only hesitation, which caused me to wait a week to order a Roamio, was the dread of having to deal with Charter to get the CableCARD re-paired. It's always such a freaking nightmare.
