    I may have an extra, possibly 2. They just arrived today.

    Will need to get the final config in place and do some testing.. but almost certainly 1 extra.

    My Mini arrived on Wednesday. It's not a refurb at all, but NOS- a new old stock Mini with a branded Atlantic Wireless remote. Tivo left the "dead" original 2014 dated batteries in shrink wrap in the box for me, too. I thought the remote was bad, until I put in new batteries.

    I have one Mini that looks like new old stock. The other had some dust on the back edge. One had TiVo branded remote that looked brand new. The other had a remote that looked in decent condition but there was battery acid leak in the battery compartment. I think it is just the luck of the draw what you get.

    Well that stinks. My Mini looks brand new and the TiVo remote (no branded) looks untouched still sealed in TiVo bag. Also the Duracell batteries expire in 4 years.

    I received 2, they looked new but assume they were refurbs as they came in a white plain box, while the 2 Mini's I bought the week before for full price came in green boxes with art work on the box. Also the SKU of the white boxed Minis is RA930B while the SKU on the green box Minis is RA9300

    Well, my week old Mini is going back to Tivo, as a refurb Bolt on a 2nd chance $99 PLS transfer deal is arriving on Friday, so the Mini won't be needed. We only have 2 TVs. The refund will pay for the PLS cost on the Refurb Bolt. The wife didn't care for my shows in "her" recorded lineup, so a 500 gb Bolt for me fixes that. I figured, that if my needs change in the future, I can easily find a Mini on Ebay.

    Little mystery why TiVo has never implemented user profiles.

    No, but but if you go from the Bolt to the Premiere, you will have QuickMode but NOT commercial skip. (I realize this was effectively answered in the responses to my mention of Roamio->Premiere, I just wanted to make it absolutely clear here too.)

    Same with Apple, who refuses to allow you to park a potential purchase in the App store, to a wish list folder- nope, you buy it now, or go back through the list in the store again next time. Profits" before user satisfaction wins every time.
