    Maybe I'm wrong but I seemed to remember reading somewhere here that TiVo had caught on and stopped allowing them to be activated.

    I can't fathom why people are rushing to but an unreleased product that complete relies on TiVo to activate service. It really makes no sense to me and I'm not what you'd call a patient man.

    Not true. I have followed these threads and have not read anything like that. Can you provide a link?

    Well, I'm not going to tell them but stranger things have happened. I've had auctions pulled for lots of different reasons and all of them seemed pretty stupid to me.

    But there's a follow-up post on zatznotfunny which says it is working now after sitting overnight.

    Did you ever get your 2nd one working? Seems BB has put the mini on the shelfs in many locations.

    A BB magnolia store on the east coast had a few which were not on display but which employee got for me when I asked. Employee sold me one with only minor hesitation. "If the computer says its ok, its ok."

    Two sitting right next to other TiVos at my local BB. No premieres yet for me or I'd pick one up.

    It looks like they extended the Premiere 4/Stream bundle promotion. I just got an email about it where the fine print says it's available until March 17th. I wonder if this means they're pushing out the release another week?

    USB will probably work for wireless (or wired) keyboard as well like it does for the Series 3 and the Premiere.

    The city rhymes with Cork, and there is nothing New about the city.

    Thanks for the heads up on the change. They still have not changed the notice on the website. Could the March 17th extension be for current subscribers only?

    March 11th??


    Got a question for the Mini owners, can you use a Tivo wireless adapter instead of a direct ethernet connection? If not, I guess I could extend my network using a Apple Express 2 and then run the ethernet from there

    BB management are saying the 17th as well, so I bet it will be another week.

    I went by the Springfield VA, Best Buy on the way back from a movie with my GF.
    I gave the Magnolia Rep the model and the SKU and they could not find any info about the Mini.

    I had them pull it all up at store in our region as well. Springfield was on the list as having zero in stock. With at least one store on order or in transit and 12 in the MD warehouse. I'd rather not run the screenshot/photo as I don't want to get this guy in any sort of trouble. So your guy didn't check the regional inventory thing or they've been hidden. But the SKU definitely brought it up with the correct pricing (as we know it).
