They could have made it a compelling product and at least a minor success. But I'm not sure either of them was really interested in that. How many would have one if it was closer to a Roamio?

At the time that the THR22 was being developed, DIRECTV didn't offer a hardware platform anywhere near a Roamio. TiVo released the Premiere shortly before the THR22 became available.

Fair enough. Or how about if it more closely matched the Premiere?

We know from history that it took TiVo up to five years to develop and OEM platform like those for Comcast and DIRECTV.

TiVo started with what was the flagship DIRECTV DVR (validly argued by HR20 users) at the time the agreement was made (September 2008). The HR23 began testing a little later but was not a significant technical improvement and DIRECTV's HMC would still take another three years to materialize.
