    (Seems a bit harsh to me--I take the term "troll" seriously. Perhaps the OP simply could ask the forum moderator to amend the thread topic to something more accurate . . . .)

    It's subtle humor. I think many of us got it. But if there's a chance to burn someone at the Stake over it I'm in.... :) :)

    I thought about it but it was too late. It would confuse new readers as to what all the fuss was about in the already existing posts.
    Would you be up for a stoning? :)

    The response to this thread illustrates fascinating things about human nature -- I'm not sure what they are but they must be fascinating! Maybe it shows why Congress can't agree on anything.(?)

    TiVo originally touted Roamio's out-of-home streaming ability that lets you "roam" with mobile devices and still have access to your shows whether you're "in" home or "out" traveling (Roam I O). "IO" could also be geeky wordplay meaning "input/output", similar to how it is rumored "TiVo" stands for Television In Video Out where source TV becomes recorded video.
