    TiVo's foundation, and core technology set, is content integration into a single pane of glass.

    I am dumbfounded that a TiVO streaming device for use in the home can integrate content from a dozen different non-TiVo providers located all over the planet, but cannot stream content from a TiVo device (with an already developed API) located on the same LAN.

    I am amazed that a TiVo set top box cannot aggregate metadata and content from a TiVo stream device and present it.

    I am shocked that the Tivo Mini has not been re-engineered to run the latest streaming apps being created for Android.

    If TiVo ran McDonalds they would have launched the McRib sandwich without any meat.

    I just placed my order for the TiVo Stream 4K. I chose standard shipping since it was free. For delivery on May 9th.

    I ordered one this morning, to try out and just got the tracking number for delivery tomorrow from Fed Ex. I usually get things in one day when I have had replacement Tivo's sent out. They ship out of DFW, so its one day to Tulsa.

    I only got an email about it a few minutes ago. So I placed my order right away. I didn't realize it had already been available for many hours.:mad:

    Can an ethernet port be added via one of the USB connections? If so, would any kind work?

    Thats a cool $1.2 million so far. I wonder what kind of "first day projections" they had in mind? 50k ? 100k ?

    I ordered one. Curious to see if it’s any good. Unfortunately, I need Roku for Comcast On Demand.

    Don't think it started at zero. Earliest overnight order number posted so far was in the 17k's.

    And do the order numbers actually increase by one? Some places have order numbers that increase by two or more. No idea why though.

    I just hope they don't run out. I guess I will need to order a second one while it's at $50 and they have stock. Since I like to duplicate my devices in my two UHD setups.

    There's a good chance the chromecast ethernet adapter (which also comes with the chromecast ultra) will work. I don't know if anyone has tried that yet though.

    Thanks for the heads-up. And that's a pretty foolish and consumer-antagonistic policy.

    If I add a lux remote for $55 I noticed there's no shipping charged for the luxe remote. Is this a rare opportunity to get in luxor note with free shipping? Even though it's kind of expensive wondering if I should get it

    Yep, you probably missed out on the good ones and will get a scratch-and-dent one instead. ;)

    Return policy (from the fine print):
    Although in actual operation in the past (and despite the fine print), hasn't TiVo typically picked up the return shipping on the return of TiVo DVRs under the policy (and, if so, I wonder if it will do so here)?

    The Stream 4K is also being promoted via TiVo DVRs--there was a marketing message in my box's Messages section this a.m.
