The Tivo Mini is a great DVR.
P. Remus
With the Mini it's great being able to have one DVR set up in one room and be able to watch, record, and view already recorded shows in another room.
Music Man
Easy hook up and is working very well.

//Sept 5 2013 Update

I have replaced my TiVo XL4 Premiere box with a new Roamio Box and this "solves" the issue of having to dedicate a single tuner to Mini use. It has been indicated that an update will offer this same capability for the XL4/Elite boxes later this year.

The Mini also recently got an update that included Netflix. Netflix is fast and works quite well on the Mini. These two improvements on TiVos part (even though one hasn't been delivered for Elite/XL4 owners just yet) is enough to get me to grudgingly bump the review up to 4 stars.

What would it take to eek 5 stars out of me?

1. Reduce the price of the Mini + Lifetime service to $199... at least with purchase/activation of a Main TiVo (in a bundle it should really be offered for $149 for the Minis).

2. Offer some kind of management system so that Minis in other rooms of the house have permissions or profiles to control what content/channels they can consume and what they have permission to delete.

3. Increase the # of video apps to get more competitive with cheap devices like Roku.

Original view follows//

I had been following news of the TiVo Mini since the rumors first started leaking out last year. I have an old S3 TiVo in our master bedroom (which almost never gets used) and I've always wanted a TiVo for my workout room (I had been using a Slingbox for that room which was pretty miserable). A TiVo "mini" would let me retire some of these older devices and give me unified access to the great big (expensive) 2TB TiVo in my family room.

When I discovered that the Mini was finally available to ship, I purchased two of them, one from TiVo directly and one from my local Best Buy.

TiVo released a software update to the TiVo Mini in conjunction with the launch of the Series 5 Roamio platform. The update is very significant and I'm raising my rating on the TiVo Mini from 4-stars to 5-stars. The update includes the long-awaited Dynamic Tuner Allocation which seamlessly allows up to 8 TiVo Mini's on a local network to steal tuners from a Roamio (Premiere coming soon) DVR host. The Mini also received an updated HTML5 app engine and new Netflix and YouTube apps that support Google's Discovery and Application Launch (DIAL) protocol. This means that a Netflix or YouTube app running on a smartphone or tablet recognize the Mini as a potential destination for video. This is an awesome feature and is better than Apple's Airplay. The Netflix app also immediately scales to 1080p24 so the annoying black screen during HDMI resolution switchover is eliminated. All-in-all, the TiVo Mini is a great device for extending the TiVo experience to multiple TVs in the home. I will update the review again when TiVo updates the Premiere software to support dynamic MultiRoom and hopefully releases some new apps with its Opera/HTML5 app platform.


For anyone new to the TiVo world, I would recommend the TiVo Mini to extend the TiVo experience to other rooms mainly because it is so much faster due to an upgraded modern processor. TiVo has had a non-DVR extender client called the TiVo Preview for its cable operator partners for quite some time. The company decided to not release the Preview to retail which was very disappointing for me at the time. I've been waiting for a very long time for TiVo to fulfill its promise of a true Whole-Home DVR solution.

There are already some good detailed reviews for the Tivo Mini available here, so I won't go to the same level of detail. Now that I've owned it for a while, I'll just share my experience with the Mini thus far.

Before I get started, I'll preface by saying I may use some "Tivo-ese" language. These are terms most Tivo users will understand, but I'll try to keep it fairly straight-forward.

The bad news comes first. Setup was a pain.

The instructions tell you to activate the product (this can be done online) and then wait 15 minutes before continuing. I waited approximately 1 hour, giving it ample time to activate. I then forced a service connection on my 4-tuner Tivo Premiere XL4 so that the XL4 would discover the new Mini on my account.

Then I began the Mini's physical setup. We have Verizon FiOS so our home has a MoCA network -- I connected a coax cable to the Mini, and connected the Mini to a kitchen TV.

During the Guided Setup (the initial setup process), it connected to the MoCA network immediately. But when it came time to select the host DVR, the XL4 DVR was blocked off. I could not select it as a host, even though I had waited a full hour for activation to go through earlier.

I forced another service connection on the XL4 and then rebooted it just to make sure. I then unplugged the Mini and restarted Guided Setup again, and that solved the problem with not being able to select the XL4 as a host DVR. I was able to complete the Guided Setup.

Then there was a new problem. The Mini displayed the list of recorded shows on my XL4, but I couldn't stream any of them or connect to Live TV. It gave me an Error v94 -- "my ethernet wasn't plugged in." That is weird for 2 reasons.
