Romio Pro, or Bolt+...?

It's time to retire the Premiere XL4 and upgrade. Do I opt for a Romio, or the new Bolt?
  • I have no 4K television (although having 4K would give me an excuse to shop, lol)
  • Not currently streaming to devices, but would only need 1 or 2 streams
  • Love the idea of faster menu responsiveness
  • Hate the idea of a !@#$% curved box (but it will fit in my HT)
  • Will not miss the TWC cablecard and Tuning Adapter...no longer needed?

It looks like both units have more tuners and storage than the XL4, so either way it's a win. If it makes a difference, I plan to use mfstools to migrate the old data to the new box.

Thoughts?

You'll still need the TA.

Yep, kinda figured. The TA is the most problematic, but I can work with it.

Still, not sure how to choose between the RoPro and PlusBolt.

Well, I pulled the trigger on the Bolt+ and it will be here later this week. I guess we'll see! Thanks!
