    I'm getting ready to get a Mini Vox. I'm running Hydra right now on my Bolt. Having never used a Mini I am curious.

    If I have apps configured on my Bolt (like Netflix or any other subscription-based services) will the Mini use the apps on the Bolt or do I have to reinstall them and reconfigure them on the Mini?

    You'll be pleased to know (YMMV) that you get to configure every app separately from every other device you've already configured...

    A Mini VOX controls its Apps. The classic UI Mini has no control, getting them from its host.

    And like was posted, you need to login/activate each App.

    Which is something Tivo could have easily fixed on all Minis, but yet again for some inexplicable reason chose not to. It's not like it would be a big deal to have specific apps per Mini.
