    Thanks for the addition. I had just copied the link from the first page of the survey which said, feel free to pass this link on to others who may be interested--perhaps there is something personal to my account there--

    We're finally getting the app we were promised 2 years ago. Yay!

    I hope these apps and the Verizon partnership aren't the only things they announce.

    For a second there, I thought Verizon was actually using TiVo on FiOS, and I was like "WTF?", and then I realized it's just a glorified guide data deal.

    The wireless TiVo Mini adapter is going to be great for MSOs who want to do wireless installations to compete with DirecTV, AT&T/Frontier and others.

    Yeah... They "TALKED" about it... showed nothing. Should have waited until 2020 SEC to show the devices. I think this was an unscheduled announcement after 2 new OTA DVR's are here NOW.
    I like my TIVO and it's far better than any DVR my cable company can provide, but I do believe TIVO can see the end coming... TIVO patents and rights will be the last TIVO sale.

    I'm assuming this will require either a Stream, Roamio Plus/Pro or Bolt to work and the source will be transcoded (so not the original quality).

    Well and you're also limited to what the transcoding capabilities are for the Stream (assuming it works with that) and the Bolt are.

    good first step, but it needs slingbox functionality to let you watch your tivo recordings OUTSIDE your home

    If you have the TiVo models that will support these apps, you can already stream recordings outside your home with the TiVo app for iOS or Android, or through TiVo Online to a PC or Mac. What this adds is support for popular streaming devices and, reportedly, streaming of live TV without first starting a recording.

    What about commercial skip and 30 second skip on these devices?

    My guess is that the experience won't be as good as a Tivo Mini. I recently switched to Spectrum and have their new DVR box which also has a Roku app. While the Roku app has very similar functionality to one of their DVRs, there are a enough rough edges to make it a lesser experience. For one thing, you have to wait for it to load every time you switch to the Spectrum app, vs. just changing input. Also, because the Roku has a small number of buttons on its remote, the remote experience isn't nearly as rich as using the Spectrum DVR directly. Given how inexpensive a Mini is, I'd certainly use those instead. But, they could do better... time will tell.

    years late. Sad that it took this long, after I already moved on from Tivo. Came to see what others who still had Tivos thought.

    Tivo Minis cost $150. A Fire Stick costs $39. Per room, this adds up.
