I always thought that HTML5 was designed so it wouldn't put undue stress on lower powered systems. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5 "Many features of HTML5 have been built with the consideration of being able to run on low-powered devices such as smartphones and tablets"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compari...TML5_and_Flash
Maybe this has nothing to do with how it's implemented with TiVo.

yeah - I always thought one of HTML5's advantages was it wasn't a resource hog.
but the wiki doesn't show a clear differentiator between both except that HTML 5 doesn't have DRM support - which I believe the content rights holder would want for Netflix, Hulu, etc.

If that was the case, then the use of HTML5 on Netflix, which finds content rights and DRM very important, wouldn't permit the app from being created.

The problem is that TiVo Premiere had a weak sauce CPU even compared to a smartphone or tablet.

That is precisely why, if indeed HTML5 is less CPU intensive, replacing Flash with it would result in better performance.

I look at it as a challenge for the engineers to make it happen. Prove to us that it won't work, otherwise we'll always wonder and speculate. I feel like they never even bothered trying.

If I recall correctly, the Elite is about as powerful as an iPhone 3GS.

Also I don't think Flash uses less CPU than HTML5. My old PC can play Flash games without a problem. HTML5 games tend to be laggy. Also remember that the TiVo isn't running full Flash, but a light version of it.

Screwed in what way? I have an Elite running the SDUI, it's blazing fast. Rock solid, four tuners, no complaints. Literally hundreds of SPs and WLs, and I have no complaints.

Tried running the HDUI, couldn't tolerate the speed. Been SDUI ever since.

I've watched a little Netflix on it. Slow to load, not very responsive, but once you're watching, it's still TV.

Screwed?

OTOH, I'm looking forward to my new Pro. Everyone says the HDUI on the Roamio is as fast as SDUI was. But I'll also keep my Elite.

I wonder if it makes more sense to get a 2nd mini and hook it up to my main tv and put the elite in a closet. That would give me most of the stuff in the new version right?

+1 I feel the same.
