    This pretty much covers the hour.

    The only other item of interest is that Ted mentioned a return to the Canadian retail market (including Quebec) is in the works. Wasn't clear how they accomplish that. Does anyone know if Canada has a cablecard equivalent?

    I figure it’s worth it if only as a test box, or for spare parts. Or to convert my white All-In BOLT to black.

    (But, yeah, definitely not worth it. Please don’t enter the contest.)

    Right, thanks. I felt I was leaving something out, but couldn’t remember it.

    Boom! “Fast Play 1.5x”

    Though I’m not sure how to recognize you’re at 1.5x after initially setting it. Or how to slow it back down.

    I think it will reset to the default on reboot. Or, you can change the 7 - 5 to anything from 7 - 1 (1.1x) to 7 - 9 (1.9x). Change it to 7 - 3 to go back to normal.

    Ha!, I tried 7-0 and then gave up. Thanks, Ted!

    p.s. These QuickMode SPS codes worked on my TE3 Roamio and Mini.

    Thanks! 1.3x speed does seem to be the sweet spot, but it's really nice to know that it can be changed if desired.

    Seemed threadworthy...

    Now we just need a KMTTG "SPS Backdoor" pick for this feature (with the variable parameter).

    Thanks for the Live event today @TiVo_Ted

    I think regular live events may be a good start to getting more involved with your base. I watched what I could, but I would love for the Live event to have more juicy stuff :)

    Give TiVo a break... They had to sell a box full of stock to pay for the BOLT.

    That was probably a little harsh. I do love TiVo and I know they're kind of hurting financially right now (or rather they're always financially hurting). But when they do a giveaway with just a free year of service, it sort of feels like they're giving you the razor with a few free blades knowing that you'll have to come back later to buy more razor blades. It just feels less like you're winning a prize and more like you're being given a future liability. But yeah I guess something is better than nothing and there is no requirement that you keep it activated after your first year of service is over.

    If they do a giveaway contest I'd honestly rather they give something away like a free remote or even just a plush toy of the TiVo mascot. Or hell how about something like win a private tour of the TiVo building. I think that would be pretty cool to see. I know it would be somewhat limiting to people who are in the general area, but I think it would still be pretty cool. Maybe for people who aren't in the area and can't physically get there, it could be like a private skype tour where they will take you around with a camera and chat with TiVo people privately and get to ask them whatever questions you want.

    A few of the people in that video seemed to barely have time for Ted’s video stream; I can’t imagine a personal tour being something that would go better.

    And I’d think just adding All-In to a box would be less costly than all that would be involved in arranging and conducting a personal tour.

    Hmm, I guess you have a point. Well how about something like your choice of either a free Bolt with 1 year of service, or a 1-time use coupon for $350 off a Bolt with lifetime service.

    What was the Canadian context? Does it have to be cable or could it be OTA? Was Quebec mentioned by name? It's a bit pricier to launch there given the bilingual requirements. 4:30PM EST is about when I start my commute, so I missed the show.
