Think of this scenario.

You are away from home browsing your mobile TiVo app and see something you would like to watch. You select the program and initiate a recording to your cloud storage - after a few moments you can begin to stream to your mobile device!

Same idea if you wanted to select a movie from you Local Roamio library moving it into your cloud storage for viewing.

Now that would be exciting. That would make an upgrade worthwhile!

Hey TiVo - no royalties needed... The idea is yours for the implementing!

The cloud storage thing. Could really work well if it worked by identifying the recording rather than actually uploading gigabytes of data. Much like Google music does.

That was exactly what I told Boxee but they disagreed. It may have been a legal thing though.

Yeah the studios or the networks which own the shows would have to sign off on allowing a DVR vendor to store recordings and then match the recording when a given user wants to play it.

Probably they'd want specific agreements which aren't covered by the VOD deals, and probably more money.

I think the DVR fees charged by Tivo and the cable and satellite cos. are shared with the networks and studios, if not directly, indirectly.

The problem with that is you get tied up into all the DRM BS. And then they are going to want to put adds into your stream... Ugh!

I just do not think it would work - I don't want cloud storage for home use but cloud storage that feeds mobile devices wouldn't need that much space - if you managed it well.

Stream to ipad for a 1/2 HD show is 650MB. Even just 10GB of cloud space would be useful if you managed your recordings well.

Is there a chance they'd tie the release of the new models to some event, either a trade show or the start of the fall TV season or the NFL?

Or are they mainly about aiming to have product before Thanksgiving/Black Friday?

Not that they'd discount a new product for some BF deal but that's when all the shopping begins.

This has always been the case if I've run into any issue with my TiVos. For some reason you seem to think everything I post about TiVo is positive. I've always posted positive and negative. I've posted many times about any issue I've had with the TiVo or with TiVo customer service. Of course I can only post about my experience or an experience my GF may have had. But the positive has far out weighed the negative. Again from my experience, not yours.<snip>
Well when 99% of what you post about TiVo is glowingly positive, is it really "selective" that I may have missed or forgotten the 1% of "other"?

I guess the next logical questions would be:

If I put a TiVo sticker on it, before you received it, would you report in the same manner?

If I sold you the worst car on earth, with a TiVo bumper sticker, would you still report in the same manner?

Now I really am pushing it, but it's tongue-in-check, now (and some of it already was).

Your points are taken and considered.

So, I was thinking about what an EPIC FAIL TiVo's marketing of the Premiere was, as "The One Box". I wondered if they were going for yet another epic fail, and came up with this:

Will they market the Roamio as "The Only Box"?

If they did, and I had a Premiere and Roamio stacked, or side by side, then I could say "There's my one and only", while pointing at my TiVos.

Point to a thread that you're not posting in... I think that is where you will find everyone else.

Embargos rarely go down Sunday night so I would guess possibly a Monday night lift. If that happens, stores might have them by this weekend?

I do hope we are surprised by some of the news.

Of course this could also be an announcement week with the box 30 days from now. It might depend how Best Buy is with stock.

I'm pretty sure Shannon left TiVo a couple years ago. Perhaps you need to update your fantasy to include someone who's still with the company.

Yeah - I read his post wrong.

I missed the question mark and the rest. Anyway, very excited to see what gets announced, and Dave, I hope they do get you a demo machine to review as quickly as possible!

I think it's because the above person, who's title says he's a "Certified TiVo Dealer", made the above post.

I'm pretty sure this is the same guy who gave us good intel about the Mini release. Even when TiVo screwed it up and delayed it, he seemed to know what was going on. So I think he's a pretty reliable source.
