Tivo Premiere XL and Tivo Mini (speed, experience, etc)


Right now I have RCN and rent their Tivo equipment. This includes a Tivo Premiere XL4 and their special remote unit which actually has a local tuner for live TV. We are moving to an area with only Comcast and Fios and will be getting FIOS (I know that Comcast has VoD but it's a non-starter for me).

I now am going to be purchasing retail Tivo equipment, including a Tivo Mini and either a Roamio or XL4.

There are some good deals on ebay for Premiere XL4s with lifetime and since I am satisfied with our experience right now, I am leaning towards that.

I understand that the Premiere XL4 is the oldest device that supports the Mini for live TV and had the following questions.

1. Is there any difference in functionality when connected to an XL4 vs. a Roamio/bolt?

2. Is there any difference in the speed/experience of the Mini either watching live TV or recorded TV when connected to a Premiere XL4 vs. Roamio/Bolt.

3. Does the Premiere suffer from any performance issues when streaming recordings/livetv to a mini?

4. Any other thoughts/ideas?

Thank you for your feedback
