Works very well, performance slightly slow


I've been waiting for a truly good whole home solution and TiVo has finally delivered. I have 2 of these TiVo minis paired with the mid level TiVo Roamio and they're working pretty well. Since the mid and upper level Roamios have built in moca...

Nice product.


I got a Tivo Roamio with the sole intention of eventually getting rid of my cable boxes. The Tivo Mini is just the thing to do just that. The hard drive space on the Roamio is plenty for us so to be able to utilize that for other rooms is great. My...

Cost savings, ease of use

Additional subscription cost seems a bit excessive

Great for other rooms


I love having this available in the other rooms in order to access recordings on the main tivo as well as utilizing one of it's tuners. It saved us from having to run coax to the bedroom and is cheaper to operate than a cable box. Perfect for our needs!

Access the main tivo box plus a tuner

Little Box Big Amazement


Its name says its size mini. But the name however dosnt got with the feature that are loaded on the this box. I recently got this and it is just like the tivo in the other room. The only reason why this product doesn't work is because the person...

Size, features

Load times slightly (if that) longer

Love my Mini, but....


I could not get my Mini connected to my Tivo Roamio. I had to return it to Best Buy and get a replacement. I had no problem connecting the 2nd one. I hate the idea of having to pay $5.99 for a subscription for my Mini. I am already paying $15.99 a...

I love being able to watch my recorded programs in another room

ease to set up

Consumer review by:

Would purchase another Mini!


Added the Mini for the kitchen TV so we would have a source to watch Xfinity. Didn't want to have a cable box there, and wanted to access my other TiVo content, and didn't want to pay for another cable card. Have 4 TiVo, (1HD, 3Premiers). Would work...

Adds another TiVo source without having another cablecard

Price, and price for lifetime programming

Consumer review by:

Great device for the price!


Despite the two crashes I mentioned, this unit has been great. It's inexpensive, cute, and does its job well. Would definitely recommend this unit for someone who wants the TiVo experience throughout their home but without having to pay for multiple...

Small and attractive form factor. Inexpensive way to access TiVo DVR's throughout the house

The TiVo Mini has crashed twice since I've had it and rebooted. May have been related to a bad recording on my Roamio

Consumer review by:

Great for the Price


I have 6 TIVO devices with 6 tuners each. I rarely need all 4 tuners, and didn't want to by another TIVO and tuner card to just put a small TV in another room.This allows me to get all my recordings from either of the full TIVO units, and uses 1 tuner...

Price (a lot less the comcasr)
