    I am new to Tivo and have been trolling the internet and this forum to learn how to get a shared DVR for Spectrum cable programming.

    I bought a pre-owned lifetime BOLT (TCD849000 Cable and Antenna model) which will be wired to both Spectrum coax and my Linksys router for the basement TV.

    I have a brand new Vizio TV with built in Chromecast in the kitchen on WiFi. I would like to watch recorded DVR content from the BOLT. Do I need a mini or can I use the Tivo app on my Android OS9 phone and cast it to the Vizio TV?

    I don't mind buying a Mini but am trying to limit all the hardware if I don't need it. Also, any Mini setup would be connected wirelessly to my router (no wired hookup in the kitchen). My linksys router let's me have 2 wi-fi networks so I could try to control traffic to the Mini.

    It will be a 1-2 weeks before I get the BOLT and I'm trying to order all the other hardware to get this setup quickly.
