    Well, I may on the verge of eating my words that the Series 6 Bolt would be the last-ever iteration of the TiVo DVR to support CableCARD. Looks like TiVo and Arris are cookin' up something new.

    Three MAC addresses could mean built-in MoCA? Or a bad label. Also, 30W is pretty juicy.

    I can’t imagine they’d drop MoCA from a model designed for cable use. (But then I didn’t see the sense in their dropping it from the OTA-only model, either.)

    WiFi, Ethernet, and MOCA. Or WiFi, Ethernet and Bluetooth.

    It’s the Arris MG3 Cable Media Gateway with Cable Card. Now will there be a matching Mini Qi4?

    Shape sounds OK; color not so much.

    Correction. It's 12V at 30W, so no big deal. I don't think they would show a CableCARD trademark if it wasn't used.

    2.5A would be less than the BOLT’s 3A.

    Hopefully they'll switch back to 3.5" drives.

    Unfortunately, the Arris MG3 uses 2.5" drives.

    Roamio ... built-in transcoding for mobile streaming (roaming)
    BOLT ... upgraded hardware for 4K and better overall performance

    EDGE ... ??? ... (standing at the edge of CableCARD support, peering into the abyss?)

    p.s. As a bland interpretation, the “-R” in MG3-R likely just means “Retail.”

    What's our speculation in terms of how the TiVo Edge would differ from the TiVo Bolt? Other than having a chipset that's a bit faster (and better at transcoding), I can't really think of anything else it might have. Dolby Vision? I kinda doubt it. An updated Vox remote with no thumbs? Seems likely but hardly anything to get excited about.

    The only thing I can think of that would make a significant difference is if this box runs TiVo's customized ("Operator Tier") version of Google's Android TV, the way that the STBs in the TiVo Next-Gen IPTV Platform do. Having that platform would allow for much more robust app support. But a key question is whether (or how easily) CableCARD can be supported within Android TV. I'm not aware of any devices that run both (although some may exist).
