Yeah, I just heard the same thing last night over my analog TV connection

The industry does need to do something because they recognize that the internet is quickly consuming their market. People are cutting the cable (no pun intended) because of the cost/lock in that these companies employ.

I don't think the answer is tivo long term (that becomes a double edged sword for them...) but something will rise from the ashes of all of this. Then it will all splinter again. It's a pretty standard cycle.

This is seriously OT (read the thread title), can we please keep this kind of completely OT discussion out of this thread? Thanks.

+1

When TiVo does release the Mini, then we should start another Thread call something like TiVo released the Mini and information about ways to purchase.

I don't mean to sound disrespectful or anything, but isn't the thread title in and of itself off-topic?

We can't pre-order.
We can't review something we don't have.
We can't have any tips because no one has one yet because they can't even sell them.

I have to agree. Until it's actually available there is no need for an on topic pre-order thread. Threads have a tendency to wander off topic even when the primary topic is something people can actually discuss. Trying to create a placeholder for something that hasn't even happened yet is just asking for trouble.

Man, I got screwed twice today. No TiVo Mini, and nowhere near the amount of snow that they were calling for in my area. At least I didn't have a strike out. Roku came through on the release of the Roku 3 today.

I make amazing homemade pizza. I find that the perfect method is prebaking the homemade crust for a bit first with the sauce on it, then taking it out of the oven and allowing it to cool, then adding the cheese, then finishing cooking until the cheese starts to brown. Anybody else have a suggestion?

Thanks.

P.S. - Don't overdo it with the oregano.

(Just kidding, everyone relax!)

It is probably worth mentioning that I called TiVo to order a mini, just to see what would happen and on the 2nd call, the sales agent said that although the launch was today, it got pushed back for unknown reasons.

When I asked about when we might be able to order, she stated that if it's not tomorrow, it'll be within the next few weeks.

Very possible the marketing people didn't want to go head to head with Roku. To Joe public there's plenty of confusion over a Tivo mini that streams programming and a Roku 3 . . . that steams programming.

Does the Mini have a heat fan?

I'm concerned whether the Mini will have loud fan noise like the Stream does. I have to hide my Stream away in a closet and run an unsightly extension power cord to it because of the fan's annoying hum frequency.

I don't think the Mini has a fan at all.

I guess that's possible, but it seems silly since they actually provide very different functionality. The Roku is designed to stream from a bunch of different internet based programming providers. The Mini's main purpose is to stream programs on your TiVo across the local network to another room in the house. With the exception of them both, potentially, providing access to Netflix, Hulu and YouTube, the is very little overlap.

The entire point of this thread was to have a place to discuss pre-order status, as it was anticipated that those pre-orders would start soon (and for reference, I am the OP and I did not state that it was launching March 6th, just that it would be launching soon).

As is usual, people just assume that any thread that is even tangentially connected is a dumping ground for them to discuss whatever the hell they please, completely off topic or otherwise.... that thread already exists, see ridiculously huge "Mini Lives" thread.

I don't usually take myself or thread topics very seriously, but some of you guys need to learn some basic forum etiquette, because you fail at internet manners.

I will go ahead and un-subscribe myself, feel free to carry on and make asses of yourselves.

I am sorry you are taking the comments so hard. I believe I am the one who said the op was the one who gave the date. I forgot which thread had that statement and accidently referenced you. I apologize for that error. I do not think anyone was attacking you or even criticizing you. I agree that until tivo actually releases the mini then any comments are ok. It was nice of you to start a thread as you like many of us believed the march 6th info. I for one am glad to read all the comments because they make me feel that I am not alone in my dissapointment in Tivos non release. Misery love company. Now if UPS would just deliver my P4......
