From TechCrunch - December 19, 2017

The streaming box that aims to bring sanity to your streaming world by combining all your streaming hardware sources into one will ship on Valentines Day next year, according to The Verge. Caavo offers a solution to a very modern problemmaking it easy to switch between devices including your DVR, your Roku, your Apple TV, your PS4 and other devices seamlessly, using one remote and a single interface.

It uses a modified version of Android to unify all these disparate sources, and automatically switches to whichever device contains the content youre looking for when you want to watch it. You can set different defaults for various services, including Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime, in case you find that one or another of your devices is better at streaming that particular service than another (or its only available in one place).

The Caavo can support up to eight inputs, with 4K resolutionbut it has one major limitation that might be a deal-breaker for the kind of home theater nut whos likely to need something like what the Caavo offers in the first place: It doesnt support HDR.
