    It seems like TiVo may have originally wanted to push the release date for the Mini to the 17th but then caved because people were managing to get them from BestBuy anyway. Perhaps there was some supply problems with these cables and the IR extender things and that was the reason for delay?

    It's hard for me to believe they didn't ship at least the AV cable with the unit -- not many people use component anymore, but there are plenty of reasons to need access to the audio. Or at worst have a coupon in the box to order the cable(s) you need for a minimal price.

    So this is why my Mini audio is messed up?

    I ordered this from Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004YEBK66/ref=oh_details_o07_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I just got it today and came here seeing if anyone elses was screwed up. It has a high pitched squeal if I actually plug it in all the way. I have to leave it almost floating inside to have it be normal.

    Wow, thanks Tivo for not including a "rare" cable compared to the stack of HDMI that I have.

    P.S. The cables are in stock now at Tivo for $15 for the Mini with $9 shipping. First class mail for that weight is $2.....

    At least the shipping price is the same if you order two. If you order three then it only goes up 27 cents.

    I need to order two A/V breakout cable kits.

    I was about to say that is highway robbery until I looked for myself.
    Looks like you get both sets of cables in the "kit" for the $15.
    That is on par with the cost of the IR blaster cable @ $7.

    It doesn't surprise me one bit that the TiVo cables are "configured" a certain way that is different than a generic cable.

    That IR blaster IS NOT, I repeat, IS NOT for the Mini.

    It is for the older TiVos which had to control set top cable boxes.

    Again...
    That IR blaster IS NOT for the Mini.

    Your are right, BUT, I wanted to make sure someone does not misunderstand this and orders one with the intension of using it on the Mini. There have been questions of an IR port on the Mini (there is not). Before it came out, it was reported that there would be one.

    There will be one, but it plugs into the USB port.

    :( Sorry. Without a actual wire layout it was just a guess based on the reviews and their reference to it not working with iOS devices.

    I find it a bit unsettling that these are not included with the Mini. Yes, most people will use HDMI. But still, it should have came with the breakout cable AT LEAST.

    I understand them not including it. Otherwise they would have needed to raise the price to get the profit margin they want. Although personally I wish they had a version of the TiVo Mini with no HDMI cable, no remote and no batteries. And charged a little less for it. Since I will not use any of those.

    For splitting to composite or component? I bought a similar cable from radio shack (silly expensive anyway) and it works fine for composite, but not for component.

    Can anyone verify that this is correct for the composite pinout? I've got a small tv with a different order for its 1/8" TRRS AV connector, so now i have to bust out the soldering iron...
