    Thank you all for your information. :) I don't mind the $7 per month if it helps keep the Tivo company going. I have not seen any yet, but don't think I would like pre-roll ads. I guess I'd be ok with them if they were always 30 seconds and skipable with 1 click of the jump 30 seconds.

    Thumbs up Thumbs down not working is disappointing. I hope there is a way to indicate that a suggestion is bad.

    Stay well.

    (Funny how you thought to threadcr*p on this topic yourself in the second post in this thread, with no one else having mentioned it. Just sayin'.

    And by the way, T4 is just fine, if it meets your needs and wants. As is TE3.)

    One note on this for you or others who might be having signal issues. When I switched back to OTA last fall, I was having trouble with one station, even though I thought it should come in fine. After researching, I discovered that cell phone towers could affect broadcast TV signals if you are close enough to one. I have a tower basically across the highway from my home. So I purchased an "LTE filter" and put that on the cable coming into my home, and ever since then, I have been receiving that problem channel with no issues.

    So currently migrating from Dish back to Bolt OTA. Have noticed a couple times where Dish correctly recorded a new episode and Bolt did not.
    Both set to record new episodes. Upon closer inspection seems to have something to do with (on the Bolt) starting season. For some reason
    the Tivo guide data is listing the wrong season for the new ep, or maybe it was from last season and never shown. So would it hurt anything
    on the Bolt season pass (when creating it) to set it back one season on starting season and still set it to new episodes only?
    Thanks

    So two weeks in with only my Bolt OTA, no dish. Getting to know the Bolt. Really no complaints. Thr recommendations are worthles so turned those off.
    I cut the cord also trying to figure out streaming stuff. Will use my Firestick for all of that. Have a Netflix account, sharing Hulu and Disney+ with daughter. Wondering how to watch Alabama football games in a few months. How to watch HGTV shows, unsuccessful on that so far.

    On the older side and trying to understand streaming. The reason I dumped Dish was the cost, $130 per month. I also have never understood why all providers refused alacarte pricing. Out of all of the Dish channels, I would watch 10. I've had a DVR ever since Direct and Tivo had a relationship; time shifting is a must have for all providers.

    So here I am expecting to be able to stream just the channels I want, lets say HGTV and ESPN. Can't do it. Got to take 30 channels with SlingTV, or YouTubeTV, or Hulu Live TV....
    and for two of those three DVR is not included. WTF? Why would anyone pay for "live" tv if they can't time shift it? As far as I know there isn't a DVR you can own that can time shift the "Live TV" streaming services.

    There is probably a lot I don't know. Please share your knowledge. ty
