    Does anyone have advice about moving a TiVo to outdoors? With the pandemic I want to be able to watch sports with neighbors outside and socially distanced. We have a covered patio, and I am consider mounting a TV with a TiVo unit (maybe move my white Bolt). What about dust, temperature swings? It should stay dry during rain.

    Thanks,

    I'd strongly consider an HDMI over Coax or Cat5 solution in order to keep my TiVo indoors.

    They're available with I/R repeaters to operate the TiVo from a distance. Or a Harmony Hub with a Bluetooth connected Remote has pretty good range.

    Please tell me more about the IR repeater. Is it a wire running from the distanced TiVo to the same location as the tv? Does it plus into the Bolt?
    Thanks

    Well, what I was talking about would be integrated with the 'HDMI Over xxxx' device.

    The units I've installed seem to be continually re-developed to improve function or add distance or resolution.

    Amazon ought to have a pretty good selection. Or NewEgg.
