    It looks like has to do with the (rumored) TiVo Mantis - a new OTA headless box from TiVo, similar to Tablo or HDHomeRun

    Yep, "Mantis" *is* right there in the link, "mantis_setup.html" ...

    Code:
    http://tve.setuplab1.tivo.com/mantis_setup.html?tsn=undefined#welcome
    p.s. "Mantis" was *such* a better name.

    The "Choose Tier" stage of the setup process sure does cloud the issue as to what this device might do. It's possible that the coax port is only for providing MoCA network connectivity, and the device is a client for a PS Vue-like service.

    Well, possibly only a few weeks to wait to find out...

    I am assuming that this is the sort of thing that might be announced at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017. At this point, it is only a couple of weeks away.

    if i had to guess, yes, tivo accidentally released a blog (that has been pulled) about their new UI (looks like the one you see on the corporate pages). My guess a whole bunch of announcements, hopefully not all of them behind closed doors to the providers only.
