What experts liked
The TiVo Mini is an easy way to give another TV in your home access to your TiVo DVR, live TV and streaming services. But if you're not in a hurry, you may want to wait till more features and services arrive.
- CNET
Finding cable, streamed, and recorded content through the voice remote is much faster and more fun than using an onscreen keyboard.
- Sound And Vision
What experts didn't like
4/XL4 boxes require a dedicated tuner from your DVR for live TV streaming; requires wired network connections for both DVR and TiVo Mini.
- CNET
Voice control adds little to program navigation. New Experience interface is sometimes cluttered and confusing.
- Sound And Vision
