    Hi!

    I have a 1TB Bolt DVR running T4 in my living room along with a Mini in my bed room. Because I live in a one bed room apartment and didn't want to run ethernet cable from my living room to the bed room, my set up also includes a TP-Link AC750 RE205 WiFi extender to allow the Mini to connect to my network via WiFi. Also because I am blind neither one of the TiVo boxes is hooked up to a TV, instead the Bolt is hooked up to a Bose Solo 5 sound bar and the Mini is hooked up to a simple amplified speaker.

    This set up worked perfectly for six weeks, then it developed two problems.

    The first problem has to do with the Mini. While listening to a recording with it, I can pause the playback but cannot resume it by pressing pause again, instead I have to rewind or fast forward, then press play to get the playback to resume. This work around does work, but it's not supposed to work that way.

    The second problem is most likely coming from the Bolt because it began before I got the Mini. While listening to a recording, which starts off playing with no problems, the audio will start cutting in and out for about a minute or two, then playback will resume playing normally for a while, then the cutting in and out will start up again. Rinse and repeat.

    I am hoping that somebody has seen this behavior before and knows what the problem is and how to fix it.

    Thanks!
