    Bolt update, working fine. All good.
    I've always wondered with a DVR: when I watch a show I skip commercials. For some shows the Bolt does it for me, the rest I have to do it myself. (oh so many button pushes) Why doesn't Tivo save my skipping commercial information and use it to help the next person who is viewing same recording? Yes a few details to work out, maybe use an average of a few people to make sure one person isn't really out in left field.

    I don't want them crowd sourcing on my limited bandwidth.

    LOL. “... a few details to work out ....” How easy it is to underestimate the effort and cost of something that others have to implement.
