    I'm changing over from Cox cable/internet to FIOs. My two Bolt+ machines have been on Cox cable for years. When FIOs cable TV and internet is installed and new cablecards installed, do I have to rerun the full setup routine and will I loose all programs saved on my Bolts?

    Yes, you need to re-run Guided Setup with the new service connected.

    No, you won't lose what you recorded.

    Thanks. Just the info I needed.

    Anyone who has made the switch from Cox to FIOs with multiple TiVos and Minis who has tips I'd greatly appreciate your suggestions.

    FYI - Your 1Ps should remap.

    I've switched from FiOS to Comcast and Comcast to FiOS without any issues.

    Minis does not matter who your TV source is from because it has no tuners. It relies on the host DVR.
