    If I remember correctly, the advert said that it could do wifi direct to tivo but also go through your home wifi if necessary. No?

    Yes, I believe that was the case, IIRC on the Bolt platform.

    There definitely is an on-board software component to it, from posts here, at least for setup. But I could see that being added to TE3 as well--it expands the market. Added to that, TiVo looking for TE3 beta testers a while back. One can dream . . . .

    Not sure if Tivo Ted follows these forums, but if he does, perhaps he could update us on the adapter release status?

    As of last week or the week before, he said here that he was thinking that it would reach retail outlets next month.

    It is irritating that they do not say anything about it

    Supposed to be this month, if all is working. Would not be good for TiVo to miss November/December holiday sales (it should be at retail now for that) . . . .

    I think the adapter will happen when hell freezes over. But then again, that's what we used to say about the Eagles getting back together so who knows.....

    I have an offer for TiVo: I promise not to any longer write about my thoughts on TiVo+ if they at least update us honestly on the alleged adapter

    Come on, give them a break - Bad_Rovi does not have time to work on stuff like this anymore - their entire priority is to find ways to shove new commercials in your face.

    Why would you imagine that they would want to work on something that the customers might actually WANT?? Their recent history shows a totally different focus.

    And yet, the Mini wireless adapter has been manufactured and gone through beta, and has been expected, by TiVo as posted by one of its reps here last month, to hit retail this month. ;) Hopefully it doesn't become this year's TiVo Mavrik device. :(
