    I have a Tivo Mini and a Bolt. The Mini often loses its connection to the Bolt.
    - The Mini and the Bolt are both able to connect to the Internet.
    - The Mini is connected directly via Ethernet cable to my Wifi router.
    - The Bolt has an Ethernet-over-powerline connection and a switch in it path to my Wifi router.

    Powercycling the Bolt restores the Mini's ability to connect to it.
    Powercycling the Mini, switch, Ethernet-over-powerline and Wifi router has no effect.

    How can I maintain my Mini's connection to the Bolt?

    Thank you,

    My Bolt and Mini have done this for a couple of years randomly. Been restarting the mini myself at least 4 times a week. Have not had to restart the Bolt.

    Something else. Because of a different problem (No Guide Data), I decided to go back to TIVO version TE3 to see if that fixed the problem. It did. I have also noticed the mini hasn't lost connection to the Bolt since I've done this (4 days ago). Is it a permanent fix? I don't know; not enough data in this short time.
