    It is interesting. I am probably going to wait for the pro version which will have more storage and tuners (I have a 4 tuner Roamio and it is not enough, I have 3 mini's attached!) Should be a much faster processor hopefully, and the commercial skip (a la old ReplayTV) could be good.

    It's interesting. I have my Roamio Plus w/ HDD upgrade I did myself. I don't have a 4K TV so it's not an urgent upgrade. Looking forward to the Bolt Pro or whatever the next version is. But 6 tuners is the minimum for me. They really need to get HBOGO & SHOtime Anytime added to their list of video providers if they really are trying to compete w/ traditional STB or Streaming STB especially since most cable providers block OnDemand unless you have their STB. You won't gain many new subscribers w/o those. Luckily I also have a Roku 3, ATV and a Chromecast stick. I have options but I'd really rather have an all-in-one solution.
