    My Mini seems to be getting worse as time goes on.

    Hulu is the biggest problem: more often then not the audio will play but the video is static. Rebooting the Mini usually fixes it. Sometimes I have to Reboot the host Roamio too. A couple of times I've had to reinstall the Hulu app on the Roamio.

    Now periodically recordings won't play either: the sound is fine but the video is black.

    The same recordings play fine on the Roamio and are fine on the Mini after a reboot.

    Suggestions? Other than frequent reboots?

    I've had this issue, periodically, on one of my Minis for a while ... Hulu audio but no/black video, and returning to the TiVo UI and subsequent playback of a recording now also has audio but no/black video. Only a reboot resolves the issue.

    I just accept the reboots of the Mini, at this point ... or switch inputs to the Roku.

    That's what I do (except I use a Chromecast or fire stick).

    It's the first time I've had tivo hardware quit on me. It'll likely be my last.
