Engadget Review

The TiVo Mini is a great way to affordably extend the TiVo experience, but we'll have to wait for some updates to complete the experience.

Pros
  • An affordable way to get TiVo on a second screen
  • Faster UI than on a TiVo Premiere
  • MoCA built-in for a reliable and accessible network connection
Cons
  • Requires a four-tuner TiVo to set up
  • Assigning a tuner for live TV means one less for recording
  • No Netflix, Amazon or the ability to manage recordings
