    Is there a way to bulk transfer all shows from a Roamio to a Bolt? Using the TiVo online tool and selecting all doesn't seem to actually transfer anything. Doing them one by one seems to work though I think it allows you to create duplicates on the destination. TiVo chat said they recommend doing 5-10 at a time. That would take forever.

    My experience has been that issues and malfunctions can occur whatever the method, if more than 15-20 shows are transferred at a time. (I've done it via pyTivo Desktop, TiVo box to TiVo box direct transfer, and TiVo Online.) While it does take time, you get into a groove, just checking and loading up more shows periodically--the technology doing the heavy lifting.
