    Thank you!

    I took a screenshot on my phone after seeing your post. When I went to my computer to file a claim, it was already up to $130! Glad I had the screenshot.

    Albany Area...
    Just ordered a 500g Bolt, found out about the deal yesterday from reading this forum thread, and called in to order also asked about a discount for a slider remote. They threw it in to the deal no cost to me.
    Quick question on my Premier can I remove the drive (3TB) and connect it into my Roamio Plus via ESATA and access my stored shows that way. Thanks for info on the deal

    I just upgraded to the Bolt+ last week. I noticed that Best Buy has it for $477.99 today. Anyone seen a lower price for credit card price protection purposes?

    Edit: I looked back at price tracking and the $310 last week was third party, not amazon, which means hit or miss for price matching, most likely miss.

    I think it was around $310 for a couple of hours during the day last week. Most of the time it is around $450-$500 though. The below $400 prices tend to be either a couple of hours within a day or just one day.

    Decided not to upgrade at this time. Waiting to see what happens for Black Friday sale and or new TiVo developments. TiVo online problems have me concerned and well as the CEOs statement in May that TiVo no longer wants to be in hardware.

    My new Bolt will be arriving this week. Were you able to pair your existing cable card to your Bolt using the Comcast pairing webpage? I'm hoping that will work. Every time I have had to pair a card over the phone required multiple calls until they got it paired correctly.

    Nope. I got an error. But I couldn't (yet) find any channels that were failing to tune or giving me the pairing screen, so I'll wait a bit before calling.

    It looks like Comcast "fixed" my account settings (screwed them up) so I'm paying for a DTA that I returned months ago along with both cable cards so I need to call in some time soon anyway.

    So, a $99 deal now is a worse deal than a maybe Black Friday deal?

    The online problem has been fixed.

    The CEO has not retracted his statement, so I imagine you’ll never buy another TiVO.

    Didn't say I would never buy another TiVo...

    My needs are met for now so I am postponing my decision to upgrade to see if a better offer comes along. Some have been offered slider remotes to sweeten their deal, others have found price matching on Amazon prices with Discover or Citi, and I think Black Friday may be the same or better offer.

    TiVo is a system of systems that you love but it can be painful at times. A geeks paradise.

    A geeks paradise indeed. My wife thought that’s what my experimenting with DVRs in general and TiVo’s specifically, was. Just more electronic toys...Until Skip Mode came out. :) She abhors commercials. On more than one occasion, she has complained Skip was not working. I had to, politely, point out she was watching live TV.

    I don't recall TiVo's BF deals ever being that hot.

    here's 2016 & 2015 & 2014.

    I thought the $200 Roamio OTA refurb with Lifetime was a very good deal, especially for folks with a dremel.

    I think the Roamio+ will see the Premier drive as a new drive, format it and you will lose all your shows. You could pull all your shows to the Roamio from the Premier. You can get larger capacity 3.5" drives for the Roamios than the Bolt making the Roamio an nice archive device.
