How does this compare to other options? Based on specs, it will perform at least as well as an Amazon Fire Stick 4K and likely a bit better due to 25% more RAM and a (very) slightly faster CPU. GPU performance is nearly identical. Other than that, advantages over other similarly priced devices are Chromecast Ultra 4K capability and searching across apps (haven't personally tried this). Spec comparison below.

TiVo Stream 4K (this device)
Amlogic S905Y2 SoC (12nm)
- CPU: 4x ARM Cortex-A53@1.8GHz
- GPU: Mali-G31@650MHz
- onboard storage: 8GB
- memory: 2GB DDR4
- big bonus, IMO: USB-C port for use with Ethernet adapter and expandable storage options (I wouldn't be surprised if you could power it through the type-C port as well, but that's not official)

Amazon Fire Stick 4K (2018)
MediaTek MT8695 SoC (12nm)
- CPU: 4x ARM Cortex-A53@1.7GHz
- GPU: PowerVR Rogue GE8300@660MHz
- onboard storage: 8GB
- memory: 1.5GB DDR4

Mi Box (2016)
Amlogic S905X SoC (28nm)
- CPU: 4x ARM Cortex-A53@2GHz
- GPU: Mail-450@750MHz
- onboard storage: 8GB
- memory: 2GB DDR3

Good comparison of the S905X in the Mi Box and the S905Y2 in the TiVo: https://androidtvbox.eu/functiona...nd-s905x2/

This is TiVo in name only. It's a streaming stick that has no relationship (at this time) to any TiVo device. It has the TiVo UI and ease-of-use, and some other bells and whistles, but from what I understand, at bottom, it's NOT a TiVo. It's a streaming stick. If you're a TiVo user and owner, this is not really going to do much for you.
This does Dolby vision and atmos for $50. The next cheapest option that does this is the Fire TV Cube for $119 (don't get me started on the 4k fire stick. It says it does DV/Atmos but it does not.) For tech heads like myself, just this makes it worth it.
that remote with the "Input" button might be the thing that gets me to abandon the roku streaming sticks.

I wish this integrated with a TiVo if you already have it. If there was some way that I could search across cable TV I can watch from my Bolt and various apps that I subscribe to, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. The Bolt doesn't have all apps unfortunately and doesn't support Dolby Vision.

I was looking for that information back when I first heard about it too.

To my knowledge, it's merely an Android TV-powered streaming device. I believe it integrates their ad-supported TiVo Plus app (plus other streaming apps such as Sling), but no live TV from your TiVo or DVR extension like the TiVo Minis allow.
