    Hopefully, @TiVo_Ted will get back with an update, and news as well about any special holiday season deals coming shortly . . . . ;) We even have a thread already set up for it: Hey, TiVo, what's the holiday season buzz?. :D

    Just want to say.............so irritating................Tivo has a terrible habit of announcing something and then sticking their head in the ground when it comes to transparency.

    Happy now? :) It appeared after my daily checks at Amazon.com and zatznotfunny.com.

    The Amazon.com listing, with specifics (listed below): https://www.amazon.com/TiVo-WiFi-5-...?keywords=tivo+adapter&qid=1574304890&sr=8-35. It's available for order now at $59.99, to be shipped when stock arrives.

    Zatz also confirmed it only works with TE4. Based on what @TiVo_Ted has previously posted about TE3 essentially in maintenance mode, seems unlikely some of us on the old software will get it.

    The TE4 requirement also appears in the Amazon listed specs. I keep hoping. It only would take a TiVo engineer a weekend to add it to TE3 . . . . ;)

    An open question is whether the adapter can set up a direct connection between a master Bolt box and a Mini VOX rather than having to go through a separate router, a feature mentioned earlier. Perhaps not, as the Amazon specs (see above) mention the need for an existing 5GHz wireless network?

    It does discuss direct connection.

    Does "out of stock" mean it has not been released yet?

    Did I miss that? I don't see it in the Amazon.com specs. In the Zatz article, direct connection was mentioned in a January news article--the direct connection feature was being discussed at that time--but Dave Zatz then likewise goes on to wonder whether the current release version will have the feature.
    Either that it's not yet been released and/or the stock has not yet been received, in this case.

    You are right. I misread the article. So perhaps it did not make it in to the specs or it is just not mentioned for some unknown reason.
