    I probably wouldn't--there just are too many variables and uncertainties.

    I have patience. I have curiosity too. When it happens, it happens.

    The mini wireless adapter was due quite some time ago based on Tivo's own press release. I am dubious as to whether it is actually coming since TiVo has not uttered a word regarding it since 8 months ago.

    Not quite the case: as best I recall, it was "said" to be coming in the second quarter (and TiVo's quarter system, we have been told, begins in February, not January) or mid-year. I don't recall if TiVo itself provided those estimates--I've seen them in industry blogs from 3rd parties such as Dave Zatz of zatznotfunny.com. (Do you have the TiVo press release you mention? I don't recall and can't find it.) Regardless, in my humble experience, tech. release announcements rarely are 100% accurate esp. as to timing, for a myriad of reasons (not all of them nefarious, lol). Edit: I did just find a mid-January 2019 Forbes article stating, "The new TiVo Mini wifi adapter is coming in a few months."

    Speaking of which, from this past Friday:

    Maybe, viewing the picture from Mr. Zatz, it just an old Roku case filled with old pin ball machine parts. :)

    I'd say, just sit back and wait the process out. It would be lovely for August-September-October.

    I'm thinking the only use case for using a mini with a wireless adapter is in a room that isn't wired for coax or ethernet. Even if the four tuner host tivo doesn't have a moca bridge, the cost of buying the moca bridge will probably be about the same as the wireless adapter. But the MOCA bridge is more complicated to set up requiring a POE filter and splitting the coax at the host.

    Another use: something to play with. :)

    Forget....forget what? I cannot remember that TiVo announced a wireless mini adapter then pretended not to have done so. .
    The TiVo app, though certainly welcome, are going to have a lower quality experience than watching on TiVo hardware. I'm not complaining, I think the apps are a great idea. I'm just saying they do not take the place of the promised wireless adapter.
