    I was just looking for a Tivo mini on tivo.com. They don't show it as available. Am I missing something?

    It's available at Amazon.com, Best Buy, and WeaKnees.com (both new and refurb.), if you're up for alternate sources.

    No. VA/D.C.
    Someone just posted about this on Reddit and I saw that TiVo.com/products/mini (direct url to the mini Vox in the past) now redirects to TiVo.com/shop with no mini listed.

    @davezatz - hear anything?

    I wonder if just an oops or if they will add the capability to tether to a TE4 box with the Stream 4K?

    Huh? Why?

    They’re coming out with a new DVR product. That’s GOOD news.

    And if you want the existing model they’re available on amazon and Weaknees.

    OK, I'll hold off judgement until I see what the new product will do. I'm betting it's built-in wireless and Stream 4k connectivity. My guess.

    I see nothing wrong with either one of these two. Actually good.

    Speculation or you have a source?

    I am hoping that the Stream becomes the alternative with the ability to source the Tivo DVR

    Usually good news when something is getting updated- but we have seen updates leave us scratching our heads before- Tivo Edge.

    the new mini (or mini vox replacement) Could be great, but I am now quite happy I purchased my 2nd mini vox a couple months ago even though I am not sure when I will really need it.

    I say this cause the mini Vox works great (very happy with it) and can run TE3 (which I currently choose to use on my bolt). Sometimes newer isn’t always better (think Apple Mac keyboards from 2016-2019).

    All that being said, as a current TiVo user I am still rooting for them and hoping for a good new product launch.

    I have a source. It's coming in July. That's all I can say at the moment.

    Dawn, I am confused. What is coming in July? I assume the "mini Lux" is a joke.

    Click the link above. It’s been leaked by a reseller.

    I looked at that link. I read it as:
    Mini VOX with LUX remote.

    I read that FB post and it says the Mini VOX is going to heaven and being replaced. I see that as a two different things. If that dealer had a picture it would have helped. Since the current LUX remote doesn't work with current Mini VOX, it would be a change. I guess we'll know next month.

    It only took a dongle for the current VOX remote to work with the current Roamio.
