    Recently I was "forced" to update the software on my Bolt because I purchased a Mini & sure you guys know you can't take advantage of using the voice command feature with the old software. Anyway, now there's an ad before I watch any recorded content. Please tell me there's a way to disable this. Thanks.

    Call, chat, or email TiVo and tell them you want them to remove preroll ads from your Bolt and Mini. Provide them with the TSNs. They shouldn't give you any pushback, but if they do, just say it causes a problem (e.g., it causes your DVR to restart, or your network to crash, or that it goes to a black screen) and that you want it removed. Should be gone within a day or two later.

    Thank you. Even without the ads, I hate the new software.

    Many of us made the decision that the voice option requiring TE4 wasn't worth it, I use my newer mini-Vox without voice for that reason.
