With the TiVo Mini, you can watch live TV, search and browse for shows, watch shows saved on TiVoPremiere DVRs in your home network, enjoy Suddenlink Video onDemand, and more! In terms of pricing, Suddenlink tells me that TiVo Mini rentals run $6 $11/month, dependent on region and perhaps package or bundle. As TiVo would be wise to avoid undercutting their MSO partners, Id say this should give us an indication of where TiVo might price the retail variant of the DVR companion. Unfortunately, according to this support note , dynamic tuner allocation hasnt yet been enabled and each TiVo Mini permanently locks up one of the hub DVRs four tuners, with a maximum of two client Minis virtually hanging off a single 4-tuner Premiere. In fact, we have it on good authority that at least one TiVo partner will not move forward with a TiVo Mini deployment until a more flexible configuration is provided.

Limited basic cable television service supposedly only gave us access to channels 2-18 (PDF) but because these channels were delivered “in the clear” (i.e. unencrypted), a dedicated set-top box or CableCARD wasn’t required. Instead, all I needed was a TV or tuner adapter with an integrated 64-QAM demodulator . After activating the service via on-line chat with customer support, I installed a splitter at the coax feed coming into the house, with one splitter output going to my cable modem and the other going to my TV tuner.
