    <Disappointed> So picked up a Mini Wifi adapter for one of my 1/2 dozen Mini's, wish it were clearer that it will not work in TE3.. Packing it up to return it.. </Disappointed>

    Just get any other brand ethernet to wifi adapter. It'll work in TE3.

    TiVo is just making one dumb choice after the next lately.

    Yea - that's what i had before - was trying to limit the number of junk crammed behind the TV - and in theory nicer to be able to config from the UI instead of having to plug the media bridge into a PC... Still not ready to ditch TE3 - rely on pytivo too much.

    I have heard good things about the new G. Hn Wave 2 powerline adapters. That may be another option if you are trying to reduce clutter.

    You can also pickup a used Apple Airport Express (A1264 gen 2 or A1392 gen 3) and use it as an ethernet bridge for a Mini.

    Can usually find them used for cheap on Craigslist and they are reliable.
