    These first DVR offers are a two day event, handicapped by the cost of all in. Maybe an e-mail on Wednesday would be more interesting.

    In the past, the "or supplies last" phrase has sometimes ended up being before end date and sometimes after.

    I wonder if a customer service rep's earlier reference to a Wed. email is a reference to this sale. If I were a betting guy, I'd wager on that side. But, you never know 'til you do.

    edit: Hmmm, wonder if a quick refurb Roamio OTA sale could be part of a Wed. email blast . . . .

    OK, Ted, I'll grant you that the renewed TiVo Mini at $99.99 just snuck in the door at 1ยข below the $100 price point. ;)

    I got the refurbished mini for 99. I was hoping for cheaper but it'll do for what I need.

    I wonder if the "TiVo BOLT 500GB plus VOX Remote" will also come with a regular remote. I doubt they're opening all those boxes and swapping in a VOX Remote.

    They have to upgrade it to hydra and pair the vox remote, so it needs to be taken out of the box anyways.

    I would say the fact that they drop the cost of service (monthly, annual, & All In) is somewhat important. You can get a white refrub Bolt with 1 yr. of service for $210 or $250 for a new one with a VOX remote, pretty cheap way for someone try out a TiVo Bolt for a year.

    $500 for the new white VOX Bolt with all in is also reasonable, at least when I consider I paid $500 for a TiVo HD with lifetime and $600 for a Base Roamio with lifetime.

    TiVo pricing lately is giving me whiplash. I wonder how many would be TiVo customers sit on the sidelines waiting for the "best deal" from TiVo?

    I was hoping the Mini Vox would be discounted but no luck. :(

    I'm disappointed...I was hoping for some crazy deal on the Bolt like the did for the OTA a few years ago. I can't justify the $$$ to upgrade. The only additional thing I was looking for was streaming to different devices. TiVo Stream needs to come back to life!

    Rumor has it that there may be a sale right after this Whiteout...

    Isn't Hydra installed when you first connect the box? They don't need to install it ahead of time.

    I don't think VOX remotes are pre-paired.
