TiVo Mini Extends Reach of Premiere 4/XL4 TiVo DVRs

Posted by at 5:36 pm on March 11, 2013

TiVo has started selling a compact set top box that expands where pre-recorded content can be played. The TiVo Mini, working over a home network, connects to an existing TiVo Premiere 4 or Premiere XL4 DVR, and can access the same live TV, recorded shows and other features that the main box can receive.

Effectively offering the same functionality as a normal TiVo box, users can set shows to record, as well as browsing through online offerings from Hulu Plus, Pandora, Spotify, and others. While it connects over wired Ethernet or MoCA, there currently is not the option for the TiVo Mini to connect over Wi-Fi, something that a number of other competing devices manages to accomplish.

The TiVo Mini is on sale for $100 and requires a $6 monthly charge to operate, but there is an option for a “Lifetime Service” at $150.
