The Premiere platform is about 4 years old, nearly 3 in the market. So I'd say with nearly 100% certainty they must be working on something new. As to when it'll be released and at what price is anyone's guess. Multiple data points indicate there won't be any major refresh in the next few months. But the second half of the year is anyone's guess.
Also, back to the QWERTY remote, I do not think there will be a replacement. There will be another remote of course, but I don't think it'll be QWERTY. Too many people have smartphones and tablets, so I assume TiVo is making a strategic decision based on Slide sales and profit margins.
