    It was and is a wonderfully useful bit of code; first thing I did was plug in my own TSNs so I wouldn't have to look them up. A couple of seconds to sign up for 20.5.6. Thanks again for this, and for VideoReDo!

    When are you guys going to let you paste your code into there? Many other web sites have done that for YEARS.

    This isn't they guys you think they are. TiVo Community Forum is run by users, not TiVo corporation. TiVo has their own user support forum where such suggestions might be appropriate.

    In the meantime, use Dan203's scriptlet; it works a treat!

    I sure hope this update corrects the issue 20.5.4 created in the mini no longer working via wireless bridge. (Works for 3-5 minutes then errors out complaining of network speed issues but I've never had an issue and the speed I'm getting is super solid as far as I can tell doing speed testing. Others are reporting the same issue as well.)

    From tivos website

    I'm posting this for the benefit of posters who might not realize tivo specifically tells you wireless isn't supported.

    TiVo doesn't support adding a larger HDD to the box either. But it works. It may be the most popular thread on all forums.

    Yes, wireless bridging and HDD self-upgrades work, but the point is they're not supported. I think the point being made is that the previous poster's lament about 20.5.4 breaking wireless bridging is pointless since that's an unsupported setup.

    HDD upgrads work quite consistently. Low risk that TiVo says "tough nuggies, not supported".

    WiFi sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Much higher risk that TiVo says "tough nuggies, not supported".

    If WiFi works for you, feel free to use it. Those who have problems traced to WiFi should consider alternatives, perhaps even alternatives that TiVo supports.

    Very true I should have mentioned that for folks who may otherwise be under the impression TiVo supports wireless streaming with the mini. And while they have no technical reason to try and fix this new issue I'm hoping that the new firmware will once again allow me to stream via a wireless bridge.

    Tivo sells a wireless N adapter which is a bridge. Tivo could market a wireless adapter for the mini. Tivo could have included wireless as an included feature. Tivo doesn't think wireless is a reliable method of network connection for the mini. I don't think fixing wireless is on tivos to do list of fixes.
