What does TiVo Mini get from the host DVR?
TiVo Mini is a client device. It depends on the host DVR to provide:
Program guide data
Tuners (for Live TV streaming and QAM-based VOD)
Multi-Room Streaming content
NOTE: If TiVo Mini loses connection to your home network, this data will not be available.
How many Mini boxes can be supported on one TiVo DVR?
Up to eight TiVo Minis can be supported by one TiVo network containing either TiVo Roamio or Premiere DVRs. One tuner is used each time a TiVo Mini is being used on the network. Therefore, depending on the number of DVRs and tuners you have available, you may not be able to have all eight operating simultaneously.
TiVo Roamio DVRs allow for dynamic tuner allocation, so the tuner is only used when the Mini needs it and is released back to the DVR for use when the TiVo Mini isn’t in use. TiVo Premiere DVRs do NOT support dynamic tuner allocation, so any Mini connected to a Premiere is allocated a constantly dedicated tuner and therefore reduces the tuners available for the Premiere DVR.
Can DVR be wireless and still connect to Mini?
No, you must use a wired connection (Ethernet or MoCA) to connect your DVR to a TiVo Mini. Wireless networking is not supported.
