    My comment was tongue-in-cheek, but I was harking back to these two TiVo “products”:

    TiVo Mega

    TiVo Mantis OTA DVR Slated for a CES Reveal

    OK, TiVo, we're now in September and on the cusp of Fall (in 2-1/2 weeks)--where's the device? @JoeKustra is starting to get ticked.

    Meets expectations. My cable company is offering TiVo, but chose eero for the "whole home" solution.

    My useless two cents: Tivo is prioritizing operator level hardware and software because it is where their future profitability will come from, not the retail side. So I might guess that this adapter is so far down on the priority list it wont happen.

    I guess I should assume that this WiFi adapter is not going actually be delivered at this point? It seems like another of those vaporware things that get announced and then never acknowledged again. TiVo’s radio silence seems to indicate I should start searching for Plan C

    I do not think that the wifi adapter fits at all in to their future plans so I think that your assumption is more than reasonable. I have been running my Mini off of a wifi range extender and so far it works perfectly.

    I think they built one and discovered it is only 99% reliable. I use three on my Mini now, plus two Roamio and a Premiere share another. Maybe they couldn't decide on the specs? ;)

    I think we're going to see it. A good holiday stuffer. :)

    (Having said that, TiVo seemed to have cancelled its earlier cloud Mavrik device getting close to the eve of retail distribution . . . .)

    Sorry for the cross-posting.

    Dave's Video on Tivo+ seems to have an Easter Egg in it (see pic).

    Also this twitter thread.
