    I have written 3 times to Tivo support asking when the new Tivo Mini wifi adapter will be made available. Each time, I get a response asking me what adapter? And then they send me a form where you can fill in requesting new features, etc.

    When the left foot does not know what the right foot is doing, you can be assured that Tivo is not longed for this world in any meaningful way. This is the height of incompetence.

    Sorry. I will be buying one once they are released. I have two Mini A93 on RE6500 and a Mini VOX with a DAP-1650. I get about 99.9% reliability with a Netgear R8300 router on the floor below.

    I am not sure why my Luxul bridge which is about 10' feet from my access point will still allow the mini to time out once in awhile. But it works pretty well, so no real complaints. I will definitely buy the adapter if and when it is released

    Is there an error number when the Mini has a "time out"?

    No, it is just the spinning wheel thing that shows that my connection is not good

    Just want to say that it would be nice if Tivo gave an updated indication when they will release the wifi adapter.

    RSN

    Just my opinion, but I think they tried to use it and found out it sucks. Again, just my opinion.

    I was. All abbreviations have a link in my signature. But I am serious: when it's for sale, I will buy one.

    I will buy one also. But I am somewhat dubious as to whether it will ever come out. Even when I contact support, they have no idea what item I am asking about.

    Why should TiVo support have info on a product when the release date for a product still in development has not even been officially announced?

    It was demonstrated at an industry event and shared by an industry insider that the product was slated for a midyear release. TiVo Mini Wireless Adapter Slated For Midyear Release @ $60

    "Officially announced", which it has been.

    So..........anyone............you think Tivo is actually releasing this item? Been several months now since they announced it, lol. Those are signs of dysfunction within Tivo. Too bad.

    As detailed in all the articles on the product announcement in the thread previously linked:
    ... it was slated for a mid-year release, and last time I checked it was just May. So there's dysfunction, sure, but maybe not just within TiVo.

    LoL, your implication is not particularly required.
