  2. Breaking News - Word is the sale is coming back... "Our “once in a lifetime” PLS promotion was such a hit, that we’ve decided to launch it again! It will be announced today that the PLS Transfer Sale will be available again for the last 3 days of the month. This will include the BOLT+ 3TB, and 4 refurb units (BOLT 500GB, BOLT 1T, Roamio Pro and the TiVo Mini)."

Is there a typical time for an update to be downloaded?

    Without getting into why, I have all four tuners on my premiere recording from 3:00am to 8:00am seven days a week. Will this cause a problem getting the update?

    It should not matter when you get the update, it matters when the box installs the update. It will do what it can to not interrupt a recording for the install.

    No, as long as there is a couple of hours of unscheduled time for the reboot to happen. If you are concerned about when the update occurs a reboot can always be forced when the status is pending restart. (either through the menus or just cycle the power).

    Getting the update happens during the scheduled connection the update is download along with the program data and does not interrupt recordings. You can check the status in Settings -> Network -> Connect.

    Thanks, I didn't know that it comes in conjunction with the program data. I usually get that from 9am to 11am.
