    It would appear, IMNSHO, that the "Mini LUX" is indeed the upcoming/intended replacement for the "Mini VOX", based on this "Payment Plan" (circled in red, in attached screenshot) assigned to a returned Mini VOX (and also showing up under an active A93 Mini).

    I saw this same kind of weirdness a month or two before the TiVo Stream 4K became official (For a few days, all my devices were listed as being on the "4K HDMI" plan).

    Yeah, I've seen the half-dozen place-holder listings for resellers/wholesalers before. I just figured that since there were so many naysayers about what those listings meant, that an actual indication from TiVo's own site would be deemed more "credible".

    No shortage of folks claiming 3rd party Mini LUX listings could "just be a bundle, not a new product", etc...

    Yes, I remain dubious of the Mini Lux claims. All these sites and references seem vaguely concocted.

    Instead of a new Mini replacement, why not develop the TIVO App that was talked about a couple of years past, and put it on the new Stream device? Make it proprietary to the Stream. It would be cheaper at $49 or $69 instead of $179 for a Mini, with wifi built in, and 4K capability.

    They seem to still have them in stock. One of my first generation Mini crapped out and they are replacing it with an current generation mini (no remote). They first offered to replace it for 79, but I pulled the long time customer bit and they came back with 39. I was hoping for 49. FYI, I purchased the Mini second had about an year ago. They also do not want the old one back. Just got my fingers crossed hoping it does ship....

    There's a sticker with the model number on it. On mine the sticker is on the bottom.

    Ok I see TCDA93000
    Any help with what version that is, I tried looking it up, see nothing about versions.
    And if a later version is available, what is the difference from my mini?

    We run a Tivo Bolt, with a cable card tuner from spectrum and two minis, we use a MoCa connection of our own set up not using the bolt MoCa, nor the spectrum modem moca.(actiontech MoCa bonded 2.0 works great!)

    I see the LUX COMING TO MARKET now, is that just a wireless version of a mini?
    Any advantage except the cordless part?
    (our minis are both connected to 720p tv sets)

    TiVo Mini LUX is here

    The A93 Mini, sometimes referred to as V2, supports the Roamio style RF remote. It's the only difference that comes to mind from the V1 (A92).

    One of my TiVo minis (TCDA93000) died and TiVo will replace it for $39 however, they are out of them for at least a week and they don't want my broken one to be returned. I presume they are no longer being produced. What is your opinion that they will get a unit shipped to me next week or any other weeks for that matter? Is there another model that would functionally replace it that they might substitute? I see they've recently sold on eBay for around $35 and up. I'm not in a huge hurry to replace it but don't want this to go on for a long time. Suggestions???

    When you say that it died, does it no longer power up?

    It shows the TiVo logo for 8 seconds, then blank for 4 seconds, then the logo for 8 seconds, etc. etc. I did a hard-reset on it without luck. I substituted one of my other TiVo minis and everything worked fine so it's not the cable or power supply. It's about 5 years old. One of my other TiVo minis died at 3 years and was replaced.
