    This could be a really good thing for tivo moving forward....I didnt do too close inspection on pictures yet, did watch the video and it is a whole new interface (which would make sense as android tv is its base layer) once work calms down I will check everything out.

    I didn't see any note that there's a TiVo app on it. In fact, TiVo stated that "Sling TV" is their partner for Live TV. So TiVo with no TiVo DVR connectivity?

    why? a firestick is still cheaper

    unless theres a tivo app to access the dvr , whats the point.

    I already have that with airtv, firestick and sling.

    a unifying guide with sling and tivo + would be a mess.

    According to cnet's article, "the Stream won't be compatible with the existing TiVo hardware at launch as it was 'designed from the ground up,' but that integration is on the roadmap."

    TiVo cuts the cable TV cord with the $49 Stream 4K box

    Tivo fancies themselves as an aggregator and curator, but their algorithm, well, sucks, and that alone won't be everybody's answer. Once it can work as a cheap Mini, there's always that to fall back on. As DVR customers we aren't really the target here anyway.

    How can you say that? Obviously, you haven't tried TE4's Suggestions. ;)

    The idea of being able to track all content (Live TV and Streaming) all in one place was interesting.... so searching, listing and adding shows to "My Content" from TV, Hulu, Netflix, etc. and tracking what we've watched and haven't.... but after doing this on TiVo, I didn't really keep at it. I think it was mainly because launching the streaming apps from TiVo to then watch the content was such a slow process...if this offers better integration with the apps, that would make it more usable.

    Do you think maybe they’ll be able to port over this Android TV OS onto the Edge boxes, and then instead of only being able to integrate SlingTV it would be able to integrate your cable or OTA sources too?

    It totally sucks that there’s no way to watch your TiVo DVR on this.

    The main thing I hope for is them releasing the apps for AppleTV, FireTV, Roku, etc.

    That is so lame. It should have been top priority getting it to work with their own DVR.

    A TiVo that doesn't work with TiVo. That's embarrassing.

    While I'm all for a nice Android TV box with a good remote at this price point, I'm disappointed that they can't get it together enough to make it work with their core platform. I don't see why I'd want this over a Fire Stick.

    I don’t know about you, but I spent the better part of my marriage trying to get my now ex-wife to be a little less chilled.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by chill and in what context.

    So it's basically Sous Vide that cools the water instead of heating it. Innovative. :rolleyes:

    I'm betting it requires a ton on energy too. Probably pulls as many amps as a small window A/C unit just to pull this off.

    I saw a video once where you can do the same exact thing by just putting the bottle of wine in a bucket of ice with water and salt. I think it took roughly the same 5 minutes to chill the whole bottle.
