Hopefully there are some ex-DirecTV customers in here... I'm currently a DirecTV subscriber out of contract & looking at options. I have a Genie + mini clients + 2 DVR's throughout my house and really enjoy them, but I am tired of paying nearly half my $150 monthly bill to equipment rental fee's. I've been researching the Bolt for a few weeks now and it seems like a viable solution to replace what I have with little compromise and less cost. BUT, I have a few nagging questions I am hoping someone could answer for me. I lurked all the threads but didn't find clear answers, so here goes: 1- Can the Bolt handle a Cox Cable Card AND an OTA signal at the same time? Or is it one or the other? I like using my OTA for the locals so I don't have to deal with the annual threats of DTV removing my local stations due to contractual disputes with the broadcast companies. 2- DirecTV has a SWiM splitter in the attic connecting all the set top boxes to the same network. Would this splitter have to be replaced if I switch to the Bolt + Mini's? 3- The DirecTV system makes the total number of tuners and recordings that are spread across all the DVR's (3 in my case) transparent to the user. Once you network everything, all TV's have access to the same list of recordings and the same set of tuners no matter what DVR they reside on. I understand you can network 2 Bolts, then assign Mini's to one or the other. What happens when I want to watch live TV on a Mini assigned to a Bolt with no tuners available? Will it automatically switch to the other Bolt? Same question for recordings; what happens if I want to watch shows from a Mini recorded on different Bolts? 4- If I purchase 2 Bolts for the same household, do I need to pay 2 subscription fee's to Tivo? Any other experiences you have would be welcome. Thanks in advance!
