Looks like TiVo has released a new Slide remote. It's $40 cheaper than the previous Slide remote (that was as useful as a bag of dicks). Anyone interested?

I enjoy my TiVo Premier but I'm souring on the subscription model. TiVo mini and Roamio look interesting but with the Chromecast, Xbox, and Roku I think it'll be a while until I invest in more TiVo hardware.
