Engadget Review

The new TiVo Roamio addresses almost every major complaint we had previously. In short, it's most definitely the TiVo you've been waiting for.

Pros
  • Very fast performanceSix tunersNow comes with an RF remoteOut-of-home streaming now an option
Cons
  • No HDMI-CECCan be pricey with lifetime serviceOut-of-home streaming isn't always smoothUpgrading from an old TiVo is still tedious
