I understand the differences as per
However, I am wondering if the Mini experience is that much different as of now. Is the speed pretty much the same? Other than DTA, is there any real difference of a Mini being used with a P4 than with a 4 tuner Roamio?
Oh yea, I wasn't sure. Mini has DIAL now w/roamio, is this with a Mini w/ P4 as well?
I just swapped my Living Room TiVo from a P4 XL to a Roamio Pro.
I didn't notice any performance changes on the minis. DTA is great. I did not have a tuner on the P4 XL dedicated to the minis, so it's cool they can get Live TV now. Rarely used feature in my house, but cool none the less.
To me, the big performance difference was on the other
end. I now have a TiVo in the Living Room that has a user interface that's as fast as the minis. I love it. Can't believe I tolerated how slow the Premieres were for so long.
