Ok... this may be stupid but bare with me.
Seeing how I've never seen this asked before... and multiple Google/Bing/Yahoo searches revealed no answers...
Does the Tivo Mini stream Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, etc directly... or are the streams passing through the Tivo Premiere/Roamio DVR?
I mean the Mini is plugged into the router directly... so I assume it would connect directly to web services. But let's say my Tivo Premiere 4 DVR dies and all I have left is the Mini until I get another DVR... can I still watch Netflix, Hulu, etc without the DVR being on the network? Or will the Mini not function at all without sensing the DVR on the network?
Inquiring minds want to know. =)
