  • What does TiVo Mini cost?

    To be activated, TiVo Mini requires:

    1. A one-time cost of $149.99 for the unit
    2. A service plan: service is included with an activated TiVo compatible recording device in the home. (BOLT line, Roamio line, Premiere 4 Tuner)
    • Monthly service fee: no monthly service fee
  • What is in the TiVo Mini box?
    • 1 TiVo Mini
    • 1 standard TiVo Roamio RF remote (batteries included)
  • How many Mini boxes can be supported on one TiVo recording device?

    Up to ten TiVo Minis can be supported by one TiVo network containing TiVo BOLT, Roamio or Premiere DVRs.  One tuner is used each time a TiVo Mini is being used on the network. Therefore, depending on the number of DVRs and tuners you have available, you may not be able to have all ten operating simultaneously.
    TiVo BOLT and  Roamio devices allow for dynamic tuner allocation, so the tuner is only used when the Mini needs it and is released back to the DVR for use when the TiVo Mini isn’t in use. TiVo Premiere DVRs do NOT support dynamic tuner allocation, so any Mini connected to a Premiere is allocated a constantly dedicated tuner and therefore reduces the tuners available for the Premiere DVR.

    TiVo Mini does not have a tuner or hard drive, and does not need a CableCARD. Additionally, the remote in the TiVo App cannot control TiVo Mini. 

  • Can DVR be wireless and still connect to Mini?

    No, you must use a wired connection (Ethernet or MoCA) to connect your DVR to a TiVo Mini. Wireless  networking is not supported.
