    Finally cut the cord & saw nobody was biting on my $20 Bolt on eBay. so i went down the rabbit hole of using the box just for the antenna. It works ok but I cancelled the subscription. It lets me tune to channels but when I try and set up the mini, it wont connect to the main box. Did I shoot myself in the foot? Is it impossible to get the mini connected to the bolt without a subscription? It keeps getting hung in the setup wizard on the mini.

    Yes you have to have a subscription to use most TiVo features.
