Well given that TiVo Mini's+lifetime are $150 and you can get a Roamio+lifetime for under $600 with the promo code -- a Roamio + 2 Mini will run pretty much the same as 3 used Premiers+lifetime.

Yes, it has been noted many times by other CM-7000/7400 users that there are features found on those units that are missing from the DVR+ (CM-7500). Those units cost $400 and this one costs only...

I think that depends a lot on the strength of the remote also. I use a Harmony 880 which has a strong LED and it controls the Roamio fine when it is pointed at the ceiling -- which is how my wife...
