    My Bolt+ has been having issues starting the YouTube app for a while, I finally spoke with TiVo support this week and they agreed to exchange for a refurbished Edge (I had a 3-year extended warranty on the Bolt+). Today the Edge arrived, I set it up, and then used TiVo Online to start transferring shows from the Bolt+ to the Edge. Ten minutes after I started the transfer the Web page informs me the connection to the Bolt+ has timed out. I check on the Bolt+ and it's in "flash all the LEDs" mode, likely indicating the hard drive has gone south.

    I'll try to fire up the Bolt+ again tomorrow to see if by chance the drive will come online, but I had to chuckle at the timing...
