    Bolts will be around for a while. Tivo is probably depleting inventory to make room for the "Bolt Vox" (and Mini Vox) SKUs that include the voice remote.

    Or, TiVo simply is trying to clear old machines and sell new boxes and subscriptions. ;)

    True, not mutually exclusive. :)

    Door stop? Repurpose HD to a server?

    I'm waiting too.

    I used my own energy cost in my analysis and the cost of the upgrade including electricity and cable card would take about 13 years to breakeven. This does not include cost of cable company monthly rental. With above costs and rental it would take 4 years. Waiting for a better deal from TiVo. My personal breakeven is 28 months - We each have our own thresholds.

    I had already taken advantage of the offer, but I received an email about 12 hours ago that says "Sale Extended: 5 more days...". It links to a page that lets me put a Bolt into the cart (although it won't let me get the $99 lifetime since I already used that TSN to buy)

    The link in the OP still works although the Bolt+ is out of stock.

    The sale is still on, if the Bolt+ is sold out, then it is, but the sale continues until 10/8, it was not exclusive to the Bolt+

    Interesting. It lets me select Bolt+ with full priced Lifetime and place it in my cart - not out of stock for me. I didn't complete a transaction as I don't need to upgrade for now.

    I don't suppose they'd let me upgrade my HD (Series 3).... why shouldn't they? why should it matter to them what box with Lifetime I migrate?

    I entered my S3 TSN code but it did not work. Rejected the code.

    Tried to do the online upgrade purchase just now. My TSN fails ("your promo code is no longer valid"). I called, and the dude is going through my order now. He said they have so much demand the online system "won't work". I am currently on hold because he can't get the 'system' to work either. Yay for computers.....

    I only saw this offer last night, never saw the original email for some reason. I've had my Premiere for (WHOA..) 7 years. Yeah, it's time. This is a welcome upgrade. I'm excited for the performance boost and the streaming capability. (My wife uh, hogs the TV sometimes hahahahaha) I am simultaneously ordering a Toshiba 3T drive so I should now be good until 2024.... :)

    **UPDATE**: Just got off the phone with the sales rep, had no problems. Order completed (regular bolt 500), no isuses with TSN etc and I'm good to go. 3T Toshiba drive from macsales on its way as well. I never did get around to expanding the drive in my premiere... ugh. not making that mistake again hahahahahaha.

    I feel pretty good about this deal, especially when I checked and realized how freaking old my tivo premiere is. I've been very happy with it, but I think this is a nice upgrade and the right time for it. I'll post my 7-year-with-premiere vs new-bolt experiences here when it comes.
