Mini and remote?

Does the mini support Bluetooth or RF as I'd like to mount it behind the tv?

They have a remote ir target that plugs into the USB port.

Even available with a wall mount.

I wish it were available from amazon, but I ended up picking one up despite the high shipping cost. It works great.

So the IR adapter doesn't come with the Mini? Once you attach the adapter, I assume the Mini can be controlled via all the standard TiVo IR codes from a universal remote. Is this correct?

No, it does not come with the mini, I assume it works with other codes besides 0, but I have no idea, the instruction sheet didn't say that it didn't.

I just want to be clear before I order one of the USB/IR adapters. Do you NEED one in order to use an IR remote, or is it simply designed to extend the IR sensor in case you want to mount it in a cabinet or behind a TV? I will be utilizing an RF base station with IR blasters. I was hoping I could just stick a blaster on the Mini like I do with all my other equipment.

You only need it if you are going to hide the Mini. If you plan on using an RF base station anyway then you can just stick the IR blaster to the IR window on the Mini.
