    I signed in to Tivo.com and took a look at My Account/Device Preferences. I discovered that none of my Tivo units, my Bolt included, did not have "Enable Video Downloads" checked.

    Tivo says: "Use this setting to enable a box to download TV shows, movies, and other video content from the TiVo service over your broadband Internet connection. Specific program offerings will vary from time to time and may not be available to all subscribers. You can turn this setting on or off at any time without charge. Changes to this setting take up to 24 hours to take effect. Your TiVo box must be connected to the Internet via broadband in order to download video."

    What exactly does this mean? Am I missing something?

    before everything became streaming based, you used to be able to rent videos from amazon that would download to your TiVo.
