    Those hard drives are different, sorry. I'm saying hang onto the Roamio so you can swap it back in if the Bolt goes bad in multiple ways like mine. But don't let me jinx it! Lots of people are using Bolts without problems. You get a skewed view here because happy Bolt owners generally don't spend as much time on the internetz: they're busy happily watching their Bolts!

    Oh ok I gotcha thanks. Sorry I had a few typos above. Hopefully we'll like the bolt. I'm sure we will we love TiVo and it's still going to be better than if we had Spectrums DVR. My husband's upset though cause I told him about the ads and he said if they don't shut them off we're sending it back. But I figured if we did the Roamio at a decent price and the bolt messes up use that money and turn the bolt for the edge but then we'll be back to paying 14.99 again. I like the fact now no more monthly except on the minis. We did the lifetime. But ok thanks again.

    I have never heard here of TiVo failing to honor a request to turn the pre-roll ads under TE4 off. It may take some time for TiVo to get to it or they may come back at some point (requiring another phone call), but requests work.

    Note: this gets rid of TE4 pre-roll ads, not the TiVo+ line inserts into the Guide (which cannot be removed).

    I’ve never had the TiVo+ line inserts on my Bolt or Mini VOX both on TE4. I've also never opened the TiVo+ app, so perhaps that’s why.

    Let it never be said that TiVo is boring in a consistency! :D (Having said that, it's more typical to have the TiVo+ line entries.)

    I agree. I have at least one on each screen. Less reliable are the individual channel adverts. I haven't had them in weeks.
