Tivo Mini Vox is normally $179.99 and rarely seems to go on sale unless it's refurbished. This deal is for a new unit and includes their WiFi adapter.

There are some deals on other Tivo products as well but I thought this Mini discount was worth posting.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Just placed an order for mini vox only and it went through. The trick is to desync the WiFi adapter and the mini Vox. Been able to reproduce this 3 times. Seems to work more regularly under high CPU load (have some game or something running in background).
1) Play with quantities until you get the values to desync (no longer the same). You're specifically looking for when the quantity for the Mini Vox is higher than the Wifi-Adapter. I've done this by mashing up quantity on the Mini Vox and four or 5 times and then down quantity on the Wifi adapter a few times and then waiting and see where thing settle.
2) Change warranty from limited to 2 or 3 year service (you'll be able to change this back).
3) For some reason doing this moves the Tivo Mini to underneath the Wifi adapter in cart (originally it is listed first).
4) Click remove on the Wi-Fi adapter. Doing this will remove an equal quantity of Vox and Wifi adapaters. Since you're quantity of Vox is higher than adapter, you'll be left with Mini Vox in your cart.
5) Change quantity back to 1 (or however many you want). Change warranty back to limited.
6) Checkout for 119.99 + tax.

Note quantity in upper right corner that shows total item in your cart should be odd (i.e. 2 tivo vox and 1 adapter) before adding warranty to desync is attempted.

I can confirm you can use Mini Vox with older UI. TE4 is not required. Mini will match UI of host Tivo.

Good price but looks like a no go for me and potentially others if the TE4 requirement is 100% accurate.

I went to the Dark Side when it first released and honestly don't miss the good ol' days anymore. What I DO miss the most is the old iOS app. The new one is trash and a joke especially compared to how good the original was.

The wifi adapter requires TE4. If you connect the Mini through ethernet or MOCA you can run TE3.

I also confirm I can use the MINI VOX with the old interface. I upgraded a 5 year old MINI which is connected to a a Roamio and it is awesome

An asterisk on the Tivo site said TE4 is needed to access voice control. Hopefully if you don't need that feature, it can still connect to a TE3 unit.

interesting, when you click "add to cart" it calls it the vox wall mount bundle -- are we getting a wall mount too?

Wish they just had the Mini Vox on sale without the adapter.

I use a Tivo setup and my Roamio OTA is struggling and I was waiting for a lifetime transfer deal to come around to upgrade to the Edge. How has the VOX experience worked for people?

Anyone know how YouTube performs on this? I'm desperate to replace my Mini cause YouTube constantly glitches and sometimes crashes requiring a reboot.

I can vouch that it works great. I actually moved my DVR into another room and use this in the main room because it is so fast. I use it for YouTube all the time.
