It has been more than three years since TiVo's Premiere platform launched, but it appears the company is finally readying a successor. A pair of FCC filings referring to new TGN-TCD8465 shown above) and TGN-TCD8400 (after the break) models have appeared, revealing a couple of design pictures and the shocking confirmation that they are DVRs. The TGN-TCD8400 documents apply for two different models: the TCD848000 and an TCD840300, that differs only by capacity of the disk drive, and the addition of MoCA and a transcoder that could reference built-in Stream capabilities. An earlier post on ZatzNotFunny points out a MoCA certification from June that adds the Series 5 tag, and a separate FCC listing for a new remote. It also speculates on a "Roamio" name or codename, with three new boxes on the way including one base 4-tuner box and two 6-tuner models.

The TCD8400 and TCD84030 are referred to in these documents as the Roamio Pro and Roamio Plus, respectively. We couldn't find any other details on specs or a name for the TCD8465, but with cable companies like Cox launching six tuner, 2TB DVRs and even Comcast offering more options on its X1 / X2 platform, advances in all areas (app, recording, second screen and multiroom features) are necessary to stay a step ahead.
