No what ifs, it's not happening, it's not possible.
Okay... I don't have the Roamio - just the Premier XL4 Elite and a mini for the bedroom... If I do get a 65" 4K LED TV (drooling over the XBR-65x900B), should I just connect it to another TiVo Mini and not blow additional money on a Roamio upgrade??

(It is an LCD TV, not LED)

It depends on what you want to do. If you are talking about picture quality, it probably won't matter if it is a mini or Premier or Roamio. The big with the the Roamio is speed. In which case, upgrade the Premiere to a Roamio and use the Premier as a "mini" somewhere else. To me, the speed is worth the upgrade. (It is also actually meaningful, unlike 2K vs 4k)

Actually, with the last update that got rid of flash, my old Premiere is much faster now, so the speed difference between the Roamio and Premiere is no longer as great.

Hmm, that is interesting. I didn't know that the Premiere gained a lot of speed recently. I banished my Premiere to the spare bedroom and haven't used it in several months (I used it on and off for the several months after the Roamio). I might have to mess with it to see what difference there is now.

I agree with Tom, it isn't Roamio fast - but it is significantly improved.
