    If you have dead Mini, is there a flat-fee price to have it repaired, or are there variations in price (for anyone who's sent a Mini in for repair...

    I don't know that anyone, including TiVo, repairs them. But people have called TiVo about non-functioning, out-of-warranty Mini's and been offered a deal on a replacement (I believe I've seen posts noting $80 offers from TiVo, and that may have been for so-called "re-furbs" (whether they are or not is another matter)).

    ok, thanks. Then a broken one isn't worth $45 then (found one on Craigslist).

    Probably not, between the hassles, administrative costs/burdens, and uncertainties--I'd look for a working used one instead (personally), in that case, or keep an eye out for a sale/price drop.
