Sorry I am new to the forum. When is the release date for the new ones. I am looking to pick up an older unit and mini with lifetime and figure I should wait until then since everyone will probably be looking to upgrade.

$599 for the flagship?

And are they going to boost the Lifetime too?

So over $1000 just for the DVR, then add Minis or other DVRs as clients ...

Looks like we need a Roamio subforum.

Same price as the Elite when it came out.

Has anybody managed to order lifetime for less than $499.99?

Yes and back then BestBuy had 10% off coupons every couple of months so I only paid $450 for my first Elite. But they don't put out coupons very often now.

A 10% off coupon for the Roamio Pro would be nice. So now it just comes down to what Io can sell my Elites for. If the sale of my Elites will cover 85% of the cost of a Roamio pro with an extended warranty I will be fine with that. But I really need to get a coupon. Since if a 4 year extended warranty from Bestbuy runs $80, that brings the price plus $400 MSD lifetime to $1080 before taxes. So I need to bring in around $470 from each of my Elites to get to around 85% of the cost.

The video of the S5 interface looked very fast and also a little different. I wonder if the TiVo Mini interface will be changed to look like the Roamio interface?

Forgot about the coupon. You could do a Smartypig but it only nets you 2%. Not sure how long it takes for giftcards either.

Wifi is only for streaming to mobile devices or for the Netflix feed and so on, not for streaming to the Mini?

Streaming is not supported with a wifi connection. Might work, might not - but isn't supported.

Wifi just cannot consistently handle it, use MOCA instead - everything over you COAX cable.

YOU DO NOT NEED AN ETHERNET DROP, ONLY A CABLE COAX DROP!

Wait, so the base Roamio has HD antenna OR Digital cable recording, but the Plus and the Pro have NO HD ANTENNA recording? WTH, TiVo? The premium models have LESS features?

Waiting to see what the performance is like, but if it's as laggy and unfinished as the existing Premiere (no Roamio streaming - the KEY FEATURE - at launch until "November", sound familiar?) I'm probably passing.

That's possible with rock-bottom build quality. This is nowhere near the S3's league in build quality. It screams "cost reduction" in the pics.

Price per tuner is less.

Plus it has a built in Stream ($85 accessory) and an extra 1TB of disc space. All in all I'd say it's on par with the Elite, or maybe even a slightly better value.

Well the reviews are in and its VERY fast. 1 review said it took like 6 secs to go from live TV to a rec shows via 5 button presses.

Speed alone makes it worth the $100. But yeah, the streaming deal helps out too.

The feature I am seeing and am interested in is the "Watch Live TV from remote location" (Plus & Pro). Is this basically a built-in slingbox feature? If so, nice, but its not officially in it just yet & simply "coming soon". With TiVo's track record, that probably means the feature will be active sometime in 2014.

I'd also like to know if it basically just uses one of the 6 tuners independently without really affecting what is being watched by the viewer. I am thinking (& REALLY hoping) yes. If so, that might be a big selling point for me personally since I have recently been looking at some similar devices (Slingbox, Volkuno & Belkin products). None of them allow you to watch live shows independantly (I think only a DISH Network setup allows this)

However, I also tend to wonder how happy this is making cable companies as someone could essentially allow a family/friend across the street or across the nation to watch a full live cable TV lineup. I think several of the cable companies allow a similar thing to take place, but ONLY within the main scubsriber's home (in fear of losing subscribers). No on-the-go option and outside of the home.

Video. http://reviews.cnet.com/video-player...-35826605.html

Glad to see the standard model is only 4 tuners and supports analog. Now to see what is in store for the Premiere models. http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7...ners-but-when/

I do wonder if the HTML5 interface can be overlayed onto the Premiere which I would think would be less hardware intensive.

I've noticed that even though the Roamio has wifi it still requires a TiVo Stream on the standard base model.

It doesn't support analog. None of them do. The 4 tuner supports OTA.

No Slingbox capability for the Roamio basic 4 tuner? Ouch, that burns. Along with the no Stream without a separate box... no love for OTA.

The 4 is entry level so they did it to cut costs.

The Slingbox capability requires the Stream functionality.
