    I 3D printed these covers off in Gunmetal Grey. I took a photo of them to show my brother with my Galaxy S8 so it's not exactly a crappy phone and got this...


    Default Auto settings in phone, no flash.

    Then I picked it up off the table and held it in my hand and took this picture which is the correct color.


    Got to love modern technology lol

    And what's sad is I've tried to find filament in the exact color in the first photo off and on over the past three months lol.

    Auto white balance. Your phone does the best it can, but it isn’t as smart as the human eye/brain. The background color throws it off. When this happens to me I adjust in a photo editor.

    Cool. Now please 3D print an upgrade/replacement case for the TiVo BOLT that allows a 3.5" hard drive and improved cooling. ;)

    I can't seem to get the search working to find it, but wasn't there someone around here who was working on sticking bolt innards in a Premiere case? Wonder how that wound up going.

    One of the posts in the thread I linked demo's an effort to move the BOLT guts into a basic Roamio.
