If this is true there are now 2 engineers only for existing support for current hardware out there.

That's quite a bet TiVo's making, on a "cloud" DVR. Will be interesting to see if they can pull it off.
I'm assuming it will be an HDMI stick or a TiVo app on my networked TV that looks and feels just like a Roamio. That may be easier to pull off than working out the technical and business arrangements with the MSOs.

They release something good for the first time in years and then they think they have reached the pinnacle? Just when I thought they where over screwing things up they backup a dump truck load of stupidity to pour ontop of themselves.
Based on what I've read about the Roamio, I don't think it needs any more features. Just UTH to keep it bug-free. I'm not sure what sized maintenance team is required to do that.
If you look at past TiVo's, they changed very little after they come out. I remember my Series 1, HDVR2 and HR10-250s had basically the same UI and features all the time I used them.

The new Pandora App is awful. I'm not sure why they changed it. Now, when one wants to skip a track, there's a two key press with different keys, rather than the skip button on the remote. Also, when you want to change stations, it's a lot more cumbersome. More key presses. Pain when you are on the treadmill working out.
