    I just purchased a new BOLT with the All In plan. I have an old Roamio which has not been used in 2 years. Can I use the Roamio instead a Mini to connect to the BOLT and use the BOLT's subscription plan? If so, how?

    No, not at this time.

    Your best solution is a refurb Mini VOX for 149 (on Amazon). No monthly charge.

    I went to their web site and thought it was over. Good call.

    1. A lifetime subscription cannot be transferred to another device, only another owner if sold.
    2. A Mini is not like a Bolt or Roamio (DVR)
    3. A Roamio or Bolt cannot use a tuner from another device.
    4. A Mini will not use a cable card, if you are on cable service.
    5. A Roamio or Bolt needs a cable card if you are on cable service.
    6. The Roamio need service plan to operate. You can call CS to see if you can get a discounted lifetime.(ALL-IN)
