TiVo BOLT VOX, TiVo BOLT and TiVo Roamio DVRs have a new Dynamic Tuner Allocation feature. This means you do not have to "Allow Live TV on other devices" on your TiVo box. It's all ready to go and you can skip step 2 in the TiVo Mini VOX "Start Here" poster.

If your TiVo box cannot reach your router or it currently uses a wireless adapter, consider using TiVo® Bridge to create a simple MoCA Network (Ethernet over Coax) network connection.

Once your TiVo Mini VOX is set up, you'll enjoy the same powerful experience that you get with your 4-tuner or 6-tuner TiVo DVR in another room. Access live or recorded entertainment, popular streaming apps and on-demand content, all with unique, cutting-edge control. With TiVo Mini VOX, you can:

2 Broadband internet connection is required to access and receive streaming content. Availability of third-party content from streaming sources is subject to change and certain third-party fees may apply.
