    I should add that TiVo already has one CES stunt planned, an attempt by three individuals to break the 86 hour 37 minute Guinness World record of TV watching. Hope they have a good insurance policy (see: Indonesia).

    “During the TiVo TV Binge-Viewing World Record Attempt, each participant will get a five-minute break (for sleep, trips to bathroom, etc.) for every one hour of the attempt. The four participants are allowed to eat and drink while watching TV and can also change channels while looking at the screen, although talking on the telephone or reading is prohibited.”

    Wide Android support is about all I could ask for as long as it supports the Stream along with the Premier line since I don’t think I’ll be upgrading to Roamios any time soon.

    I would love to see TiVo to remote TiVo streaming support. It would be nice to share shows with friends and family who missed a recording.

    I am still holding out that one day we might see a new TiVo Desktop based around the iPad app.

    I’m hoping they undo something they introduced last year, and let users choose whether they want the What To Watch screen to be the first thing they see in the mobile app. I find it useless, and I’d rather have it again default to the Info screen for the currently playing show.

    All I want at this point is the ability to watch Amazon Prime Instant on the TiVo. I think they have just about everything else in place. January should finally be the month I upgrade to the new Roamio!

    I hope they will have streaming to web browsers instead of phone and tablets. Luckily, for now, I’m IOS user but it would be great if I could stream it to the laptop.
    Also HBO GO app would be nice, since I’m unlucky comcast subscriber with Samsung TV :/. Not sure if you are aware but comcast doesn’t allow HBO GO on samsung smart TVs or Rokus.
    BTW I’ve got Roamio Pro for a month and I love it.

    Windows 8/8.1 support for the Tivo App that replaces the desktop would be nice but not expected.

    Amazon Prime, HBO GO, and a unified playlist for multiple recorders

    At this point I expect Android support to get pushed back again. I’ll believe it when I see it. I still can’t believe it’s been this long.

    I would LOVE a surprise HBO GO for Roamio Announcement!

      Now THAT would be awesome. Let’s throw on Showtime Anytime while we’re dreaming!

    I’d love to see an almond, cashew, or peanut shaped remote.

    I’d trade all of the Opera apps for just one app that can stream UltraViolet content, such as VUDU or M-Go. Unti they add UltraViolet streaming, the app selection will be half-baked and behind the times.

      Plex is extremely unlikely, but UltraViolet streaming…that’s brilliant. Where’s the Like/+1/Fav button on this thing?

    UltraViolet & Plex apps!

    A completed HDUI.

    That’s what I expect to see from TiVo in CES 2012.

    why can’t we stream from a roamio to an iPad/iphone “WITHOUT” initiating a recording session. This is really annoying since sometime I like to bounce through channels to just watch TV and not chew up storage space on my roamio.

    Chucky, is that what it is? Looks more like paper towels. Either way, “TiVo is messy?” ;)

    db, not to mention the added clutter it causes in your now playing list.

    I’d go for the ability to initialize TiVo to TiVo transfers using the iOS app (or using any TiVo on the home network to initiate transfers from any TiVo to any other TiVo).

    I get the reasons why Plex would be unlikely, so how about DLNA streaming with good codec support (or at least just MP4)? Coming from Moxi a few months ago, this seems like an easy hole to plug.

    Amazon Prime Instant of course. The new Netflix UI on the Premiere is certainly a nice step up. Something like that for Amazon, including access to the free Prime content would certainly be nice.

    My wishlist beyond that is probably long but not expecting much…
    – I’d love to stop using pyTivo for all my computer to TiVo transfers, given that TiVo Desktop doesn’t support any codecs, bitrates, or containers from the last decade
    – I’d love to be able to initiate a transfer from TiVo Desktop/pyTiVo from a Mini, which by the way is a big problem as far as I’m concerned
    – I’d love to see HGO Go, but of course Comcast would probably block it so whatever… Ditto Showtime Anywhere.
    – Better conflict management

    Free automated Carbonite backups of all your recordings!

    Curious and a bit disappointed that the only thing I’ve seen/heard out of TiVo so far is the network DVR service… Any consumer TiVo customer news to report?

    All in all, a pretty boring CES for (new) TiVo info. The cloud/network stuff is being pitched only to cable partners and Control4 integration potentially represents only a small subset of customers. I thought TiVo had some good app stuff to build noise around (New Opera, New Netflix, Upcoming Amazon) and obviously Android support. They did hold closed door Android demos (which I abstained from) – so either they’re not as far along as they’d like or they’re concerned the announcement would get lost at CES. But, hey, the TV watching world record attempt is still going strong?
