    I already have a Roamio Pro. I have 2 other TV's using Mini's and a third that needs a Mini (just have a Series 3 on it for now). If I get a Bolt that's currently on deal, so I have to get a cablecard for it or can it act like a Mini from the Roamio? I'm guessing it needs a card but wanted to ask.

    It would need a CableCARD to be able to tune TV for itself; it would need TiVo service on the same account as your Roamio Pro to be able to stream recorded content from the Roamio ('gist: It could NOT view live, non-recorded TV w/o a CableCARD). There was a recent thread where someone asked a similar question...

    Similar... Tivo Roamio instead of mini?

    I noticed I made a rather critical typo/error in one of the sentences, now corrected:

    ('gist: It could NOT view live, non-recorded TV w/o a CableCARD).​
