    I have 5 Mini's, (1) 7 years old, (2) 6 years old, (1) 5 years old, and (1) 4 years old. All running TE3, I guess I've been extremely lucky, no problems. But, after reading this thread I'm on borrowed time!

    I had no luck with the "fix" posted here on 2 of my minis. As others have stated, these were 2015 models that had the loop problem for a couple of months now. In talking with Tivo support I get the impression that they were willing to give me a better deal on the newest models but the age of these 2 is a limiting factor. They mentioned that the new ones are "supported" for 5 years I think they know that is the useful life on these things, and I assume "supported" means they will give you a reasonable discount on a replacement).
    I tried replacing one mini with a used model from eBay but the age on the replacement is 2017 (I think I was lucky to get that one as it could have been a 2015 ready to die within weeks). Fully expect the 2017's I own to die next year.
