Discussion in 'TiVo Mini' started by Eldragun, May 17, 2016.
The earlier TiVo goal, as of a year ago, had been the first half of this year.
I too would really like an updated mini that handles streaming as well as well as the bolt does. The mini is very function it just has noticeable lag when you compare it to the bolt - lag in the interface, not just in starting a program.
My 93000 (v2) minis are great!
Zatz Not Funny! is reporting the new voice remotes are nearing release, I was hoping the new Mini's would be released at the same time, because the FCC filing for the remotes mentioned Tivo Mini as well, but I'm not sure in what context
Looks like its coming within a few months
The TiVo Mini 4K Is Happening
Wonder if TiVo and Amazon will get together and add 4K support.
That's exciting - and the fact that there is a picture/graphic makes it that much stronger of news. Hopefully this launches soon at $149 and straight up replaces the current mini.
Isn't a mini just a data conversion and I/O device taking AV data signal from the mother TiVo to the connected TV?
That being the case, the mini shouldn't care about resolution ... if the mother can output 4k and the TV can receive 4k than the mini will just pass the original 4k signal without needing to specifically be 4k.
Is Amazon 4K working on the Bolt yet?
The Mini is its own device. It streams recordings and live TV from DVRs on the network, but the system software, UI, and apps are running on the Mini proper.
No - that's why I said that. Pushing a new 4K device with lots of streaming support would hopefully get more apps that can actually do 4K.
My guess is that it will retail for $249.99, which is what the original Mini with lifetime service initially cost.
4K Mini looks vaguely like the Arris Mi4.
Don't know if that means anything partner-wise, or just a coincidence, but the specs are probably going to be nearly the same just like the Arris MG2 w/ Tivo is basically a Bolt+.
They're probably one and the same device.
I'd like to know how it'll handle Plex. Will 4K streams from it be allowed? I'd probably be happy with just 1080p instead of the current 720p limitation.
Does anyone know if the mini 4K will require a bolt to stream 4K, or will it stream 4K with a Roamio Pro? Seems like the base unit may need to pass through 4K, but I could also see where this could be bypassed.
it should work like the current mini does. Where the streaming apps are local and not dependent on the host box.
