Anybody going right out and buying a Tivo Roamio?
Tivo announced the Roamio series of DVRs this week, these can be thought of as the Tivo Series 5. I have a Tivo HD and a Tivo Premier (a series 3 and 4). I do like them both, but the series 3 is starting to show it's age.
The Roamio series seems to be addressing some of the major complaints about the Premier seris: the first one is the OS lag. The OS never worked right, and still doesn't. It always seems to be about half a second (or more) behind you. There is supposed to be a dual core chip in the Premier and Premier Elites, but it wasn't activated for while and (as of today) I'm still not sure if it is working off one core or two. This seems to be improved in the new versions.
The Roamio is also supposed to have better integration with streaming services (the Netflix client is supposed to be much better) and universal search is supposed to work pretty well. Having 4 or 6 tuners will be nice too. (cont)
