Does mini have ability to have a video window in the guide?

Wondering if the video widow in the guide is available on the mini. Thx

Perhaps you are thinking of Tivo Central. Video preview is not there, but it is in the guide.

They should add it in Tivo Central. My favorite A.D.D. activity is watching something while looking through all the other things I could be watching instead. This ruins that fun.

I'm hoping that when they upgrade the Mini UI to match the Roamio UI that we will get the preview window in Tivo central. For me, ideally the preview window would be available for every screen in the UI. But that could only happen if they ever convert all the menus. Which so far doesn't look like it's anywhere close to happening.

Doesn't the Mini release the tuner as soon as you go to TiVo Central?

I am pretty sure that is the case, so it would not be available for live TV. I suppose they could keep it in place if you are in the middle of a recording playback, but that wouldn't be terribly consistent.

No, I suspect it was left out by design.

Tivo Central

Correct, the video preview does not show up in Tivo central. This is one of my biggest pet peeves about the mini. Especially because if you go back to live tv it takes it a bit longer to get back there also.

And here I hate video and audio playing in that little window. I leave it there because my wife likes it, but the moment I hit TiVo Central I hit the slow button to hide it.
