TiVo IR adapter? Nowhere to be found

I need to pick a couple of these up and now noticed that they aren't even available on TiVos website anymore. Anyone have an extra or 2 they would like to sell? Thanks!

Amazing what you learn around here. I didn't know the Mini would work with rf. I'm still using IR. I'll have to play with it tomorrow. Thanks.

It doesn't. You need a USB RF dongle to use an RF remote with the Mini.

ETA:
I purchased one from Davisadm, and had it in two days.

WeaKnees also sells them.

Works great. I now have the Mini behind the TV using the mount from TiVo. Works great.

To be clear you need an RF remote and an RF dongle, neither of which comes with the Mini. You can also use the new Tivo Slide remote which comes with the dongle
