    So I just got a new TiVo Mini. It says on the box it can do Netflix. I can't see how to access this. I see all sorts of stuff like Amazon and Spotify. I think I'm on the latest firmware. I don't see it on my PRemier XL4 or TiVo mini.

    If Netflix is not listed as a Video Provider, call TiVo. Or go to their support site and use chat. Have the TSN handy.

    Mini takes its video providers from the host DVR. Does your Premiere XL4 show Netflix as a provider? If not you need to add by going to settings/channels/video providers and add it.

    I recently added Hulu as a provider - it did not show on the Mini until I reset the Mini, then it was was there.

    How long has the Tivo been activated? Give it at least 24 hrs and/or a reboot.

    I'm not sure it's related to your problem, but right now my minis (and Roamio) can't even connect to the Tivo servers, getting the error: C17.
    Meanwhile, status.tivo.com claims "All Systems Operational"

    I don't know why they bother providing status.tivo.com. :(

    Maybe because Tivo phone support doesn't wake up on Saturdays until 11am EDT :(

    My minis can connect now, but still get a C501 (... contact Tivo Support) when I try "What to Watch Now"

    After talking to support, and power-cycle all (Roamio Pro/Mini) boxes, things seem to be resolved.

    It's ridiculous that power-cycling should be needed to clear such problems! I would love to hear the technical details behind that.
