    Okay... my first feature request.
    I should be able to see the "To Do" list of the Host Roamio/Premier while using a Mini. I'm here sitting in front of the TV with the Mini, my wife is watching the host machine in the living room, I'd like to know what our recording plans are for tonight. For those with multiple Premiers and Roamios feeding the Minis, allow a choice of "Host or All To Do Lists"

    They actually have a way to enable this. They briefly, accidentally, enabled it when the Mini was first released and it worked fine. I'm not sure why they disabled it. Although it'll only ever work with the Host, not other DVRs on the network.

    Alternatively you can use the iOS/Android app to look at this.

    I'm ordering a Mini to go with my Pro, so I want to make sure I understand this: Are you saying that the Mini can NOT get to the To-Do List of the host TiVo? Or what I call "TiVo-Two".

    I was under the impression the Mini could do everything the host TiVo could do.

    What else can't it do?

    There's currently no SP manager either and you also can't create Wishlists (auto-record or not).
    It's kind of silly as Dan mentioned because functionality is actually there. When using kmttg RPC Remote with a Mini it can return ToDo list and Season Passes on the host unit and I can create Wishlists which end up on the host TiVo.

    That's weird about WLs. I'd never noticed that. Maybe they'll add that when they update the Mini with the new HD WL screens?

    FYI guys - you can access the to-do list and season pass manager with the remote shortcuts from the main TiVo screen. 1 for sp manager, 2 for to-do list.

    All functionality appears to be there.

    If the "1" and "2" shortcuts work, try pressing 3 from the Main Tivo screen. That's the shortcut that works on my TivoHD.

    Interesting. What version of software is running on your Mini? Has there been an update recently?

    Didn't they release an update when the Roamio came out? I thought they had to so that they could support DIAL and the new Netflix/YouTube apps?

    I can check version later - but I am using a Mini with a new Roamio Pro. When i hooked up the mini, it did say it was downloading a software update.

    I see you are running a roamio plus, is your mini connected to it? Or just to the Elite? I wonder if only roamios support the mini accessing the to-do list and SP manager?

    I just realized my Mini does have 20.3 software already and the TiVo,1 and TiVo,2 shortcuts do indeed do something now. They didn't do anything with previous Mini software.

    I can't get "to do lists" off my TiVo HD XL. How do you do this? I get my "Now Playing List" no sweat? What am I doing wrong?

    You can't. The To Do List feature only works with Premiere and Roamio units.
