Advertisements OK, so I've bought two Tivo Bolts and they both have experienced the same problem where the Bolts become completely non-functional, which seems crazy. Very frustrating. I have Charter Spectrum in Tampa and have a Cable Card and tuning adapter. I set up the first Tivo following all the on-screen prompts, called the cable company to activate the card, did all the software updates and downloading data prompts, finally all was well and done. The only thing that I have not done is activated the Bolt, as I want it to work fully before paying the lifetime sub I'm planning to get. So the only thing left to set up is MoCA so my Mini will work. I then turn on MoCA (the Bolt was set up via ethernet and MoCA was off). After turning on MoCA I get an error message saying the Bolt can't connect to the network, even though I'm setting it up as a 'Bridge', and I was told I do not need a MoCA adapter as the Bolt acts as one (creates a MoCA network). My wiring setup was grounded coaxial cable from street to POE filter to outdoor MoCA splitter sending one line to a living room MoCA splitter (with one living room line right into modem, the other directly into a third splitter which feeds both the Tuning Adapter and Bolt.) It sounds like a lot but this is the reccomended setup for my situation, and the internet and cable picture signals come through fine. Now the huge problem starts, for the first time: So I call Tivo after MoCA isn't working using their wiring setup. Tech guy walks me through some stuff and one step involves unplugging everything and plugging it back in. So the Bolt powers back on, displays the Tivo name, then the image with the little mascot & the 'few minutes' screen, which loads a couple times, then a quick flash of a screen with a blue loading circle with 'one moment' and then.... cut to black. TV's inpu still has a signal, but screen is completely black. Tech walks me through a few more things (the black screen problem now making the MoCA problem meaningless) and eventually he concludes I got a crapped out unit and it needs to be replaced. Which is fine. I go to Best Buy an hour later and get another Bolt (first one was from Amazon). I figure lets go through the setup, get back to the MoCA problem and call back, or maybe even all problems will be fixed. I set up the new Bolt the same way. Update everything, activate the cable card again (a real headache), download all the data, but finally I'm back to where I was. And sure enough MoCA is again not working after turning it on and setting up as a Bridge on the Bolt. Before doing anything else I go plug in the mini and see that I get the same error message. The second thing I do is unplug the Bolt and plug it back in. And sure enough the same black screen appears moments later. I try unplugging again, same problem. I tried a wall outlet, new HDMI cord, and even tried a different TV and coaxial source, still black. I tried power cycling in total 5-6 times, always a black screen. Two brand new Bolts having the same problem. It goes from guided setup, cable card activation, download channel data, finally working, settings to turn on MoCA, error message, unplug power, black screen permanently. I feel like a third, fourth, fifth Bolt will do the same. Anyone have any idea what on earth is going on?
