Great Product with Horrible Customer Service!


The point I will try to get thru to potential purchasers is to buy the Best Buy Protection Plan on this item. If you read the TIVO warranty statement there basically is NO warranty on this item. My unit died in month 4 and Tivo is charging me 29.95 to...

Tivo as a whole

Deceptive warranty

Great addition to Tivo Roamio


This works great with my Tivo Roamio over a MoCa network. The Best Buy associate told me these could be used over WiFi, but that didn't work. Your main Tivo needs to be connected to an Ethernet port or you need to use two MoCa adapters. Once I set up...

Good value. Easy to use

Can be complicated to set up

Works great with Tivo Roamio


The Tivo Mini works great with my Tivo Roamio. Works as a second box but also allows me to watch recorded shows off my main Tivo. It also allows you to record what you're watching and has a half hour buffer that a regular cable box does not have since...

Access recorded shows from main Tivo

Great function. Watch the registration fee


It does everything that I need. Hooked to a powerline device and it works really well. I did not understand that I needed to pay an additional subscription from tivo until i unpacked it though...

Great Product added tivo to another room for less!


So if you looking in to this product you already own a Tivo, if you value your Tivo and want to add it to another room for the less then this is well worth getting assuming you have a wired network. I happened to have a house completely wired for...

adds Tivo to another room for less then a regular tivo

No wireless Options

Great way to ditch cable boxes.


The TiVo mini provides the option to have a whole home DVR solution without relying on a cable/satellite company for boxes. Same great experience as the main box at a fraction of the space required.

Whole home TiVo experience, great price

Setup over cable line a little confusing

Consumer review by:

Great Option for 2nd and 3rd TVs


I've been a Tivo user for many years. This option allows me to watch live or recorded TV from my main TV and its Tivo without another DVR or setup box.

Allows you to view either live or recorded TV on a TV that does not have a cable box or DVR

Have had no negative experience

Consumer review by:

Not recommended


We got the main Tivo unit a few months ago and it was a nightmare to get going. Multiple calls to both Tivo and Cable company and extra equipment (cablecard that I have to rent from the cable company) just to get the service started. We decided to get...

Don't know what's great, never got it set up

too complex, requires extra equipment

Love TiVo


I love my TiVo, and the Mini extends everything to another room and TV.

Consumer review by:

Cheaper way to have Tivo in more rooms


I bought a TiVo romamio and didn't want to buy a second for my bed room. so for half the price I was able to get another fully functioning TIVO with the mini. Only issue during the set up was that I don't have MOCA in my house so I had to buy an...

Easy set up, Have all the features of a full tivo

You will need MOCA in house no Wifi connevtion
