Having lived with the TiVo Mini in our master bedroom three months, we’re generally pleased with the solution. Yeah, it’s possibly overpriced at $250 (including Lifetime service)… but remains the only game in (my) town given Verizon’s FiOS TV Media Server delay. And that bug where playback drops towards the end of recordings currently in progress stings. But, if/when Netflix and Amazon apps land on the platform, all will be forgiven.
If you too have acquired a Mini or are considering it, and intend to hide the mini in a cabinet or hang it behind your television, the TiVo store is now selling the promised USB IR extender ($15) and a wall mount+extender bundle ($20) — although brace yourself for shipping fees that could run over 50% the product cost.
