While I do wonder about the future of retail initiatives (continuing? spun off?), it seems far too early for a seismic shift in consumer strategy. As such, perhaps plans were already underway to replace the DVR extender (inventory still available at Amazon) with a soft client on the TiVo Stream 4K or maybe some sort of hardware refresh is on the way. In any event, I pinged TiVo PR Friday afternoon and will update the post with any new information that comes my way.
UPDATE: The PR team has responded with, “TiVo Mini VOX has been discontinued and will be replaced shortly with a newer model.”
(Thanks for the hears up Elan!)
