    Wish it would come back to Amazon, at a real/economical price. Not sure why it evaporated away there . . . .

    I'd love to see that or better yet, trade a Series 2 w/lifetime for a Mini 4K

    Ordered my Bolt 1000 on Saturday, it was at my door on Tuesday. I'll set it up this weekend. I have 2 Premieres, and naturally the one that has a bunch of recordings is the one it will replace. But I think I can still access the recordings on it at least until Oct. 31st. But after they deactivate it will I still be able to access recorded shows?

    I want to know how much I need to hurry to watch all that crap!

    You can play back recorded shows, but only locally. No streaming or transferring from an unsubbed TiVo.

    Wow, really overpriced for a piece of bent metal with a few holes in it. But a great idea. I will make one ;-)

    My bolt came today. Have a conundrum I just posted in the Premeire section of the forum. Take a look and offer your suggestions, please.

    After much debate, I decided to take advantage of the offer today (10/4/2017). Since the Series 3 units were excluded this time, my fear was that TiVo might not have another Premiere transfer offer. I am also planning on using the price protection plan for my Visa card to reduce the price by about $56 . I was really happy with the Premiere but it is showing it's age with the recent software updates. I am looking forward to the increased speed of the Bolt.

    I ordered a Bolt+ since the $99 deal was sort of good. Got the shipping notification a short while ago; seems it'll be here Saturday based on that info. Shipped from Ft. Worth, TX.

    Thanks...That’s what my thought kinda was. I wanted another opinion. I don’t know anyone who has TiVo. Everyone I know uses the cable brand DVR

    As soon as your bolt arrives and you have it working, all you need to do is to go to online.tivo.com and use it to coordinate the transferring of stuff from your old tivo to the new one. You can transfer (copy) all of your onepasses, AND you can also transfer the actual recordings you have too.

    Since my premiere only has 500G and my new bolt will have 3TB... yeah, doing that first thing. Make sure you do ALL of the transfers before Oct 31

    Just about everything is copy protected especially movies.

    As far as them killing you’re box.... I had TiVo back in the day when it was still phone lines I didn’t have a service plan at one point so I just used the box to record by time and date an no season passes or wishlists by taking out the phone line.....so what I’ll suggest is to unplug the Ethernet cable/wireless connection and then TiVo won’t be able to access it eventually you will run out of program guide days but you can put that box on another video input for stuff that you may not be able to transfer

    Can anyone report success with a price match and if so which credit card they used?

    This would be to price match buying directly from Tivo to get the lifetime transferred, purchasing Tivo Bolt at $199 as compared to buying from Amazon for $149.

    I just purchased it with a discover card. But after doing the transaction with Tivo I am reading the terms and conditions on the discover card price match and it seems they specifically exclude electronics and media related items.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think you'll be OK.

    A TiVo is a computer to a tech person but not to a typical consumer. It's not media such as a DVD or a video cassette. It's a home entertainment component like a TV which is covered.

    Since I upgraded to the Bolt+, I no longer needed my Stream. I just got $90 for it on ebay.

    Yes. Successful price match with Citi Card Price Rewind. Honored the one day low price of $111 on Amazon for my $199 500GB Bolt. And it only took a couple of days. Credit is already in my account. Citi Price Rewind provides great service.

    whats the process for buying a tivo with lifetime and doing this deal? need to move the old tivo over etc or can you just use the code and purchase as a new customer?

    My guess is the Premiere will have to be in your account. But who knows, if you find someone willing to let you try their Premiere's TSN out, let us know if it works or not.

    I've noticed that it accepts the TSN and applies the discount before asking you to sign in/register (which is a little scary).
