    1. This forum is not TiVo.
    2. It’s very easy to format and use the outline tools here.
      • See I’m using them now.
    3. Virtually no one finds ALL CAPS easy to read.
      • Which is why ALL CAPS is always considered yelling or screaming (because it is annoying to read)

    Put some nice racing stripes on it and maybe an air foil to cut down on wind resistance.

    It should also monitor the local network it's connected to and block any traffic in which the user is abusing the caps lock button

    Firstly, is there finally a good usable intuitive online app to view our recordings? Secondly, is there plex.

    If not, add these two to the list.

    Dang man, they went into a redundant market, and they didn't even separate themselves? I would imagine having an exclusive app that allows you to view all your recordings from your Tivo would be logical.

    intelligence does not happen in Corporations today - today's business man runs companies from a college school book RATHER THAN from instinct and logic and smart ideas

    Well to be fair it would be annoying to read suggestions for v2 of the Stream this early even in small caps.

    What about Stream 15k, (the 16k will come 1year later) for those who watch 1 inch from their tv screens, with DolbyVision 4D, places sound into the 4th dimension, and trust me , you can really hear the difference. Also HDR+ Max -- all new tv's and sources will be degraded and encrypted to look dull, and only devices with HDR + Max Logo will decrypt and unleash the original great PQ it once had.

    @CHM - I actually liked EVERY SINGLE ONE of your ideas except the one above.

    Can you also add PRICE: Free to anyone who’s bought a previous TiVo product.

    We will make you CEO or Chief Architect of TiVO. Name your terms and please get started. You are already behind schedule.

    TIVO is too cheap to give anything away.

    Yes remove NETFLIX button - add all the ones listed above AND how about bring back the A B C D buttons so people can make their own 4 APP shortcuts ?

    Get an HDMI extension cable and put it on a table if that’s what you want. IIRC the max length of HDMI is 30' so you've got lots of slack to work with.
