    The $14.99 plan would be no commitment on an old previously subscribed Tivo That has already staisfied its initial commitment which a lifetime sub does.
    My s2 that was replaced with a Bolt from the March offer was deactivated sometime in June or July - well after every date that Tivo tossed out as the deactivation date. Other People's tivos still have not been deactivated. But Tivo seems to be learning with each lifetime transfer deal they offer.

    Having been spooked here about fan noise on the Bolt, I haven't had any issue. :)

    You can call them up to add the extended warranty. I had to do mine over the phone since it wouldn't let me use the code again after a cancelled order. But I only added the extended warranty to the 500GB Bolt to help the sale of it. I still need to put it up on eBay.

    I asked sales support and they have no ETA on more Bolt+. Is there perhaps new hardware coming out?

    That's my bet.

    Bolt+ sold out and long waits to fill existing orders. AND TiVo online is sporadic.

    Something is afoot at TiVo.

    I just took advantage of this program for a Bolt 1000 GB unit. It was a a completely positive experience. The unit was delivered in 3 days in perfect condition. It was new inventory, Sept 2017 date of manufacture. All functions worked and the fan was completely silent. The transfer of an 8 year old cable card with Comcast took less than an hour. The Comcast agent was very knowledgeable and even asked if I was taking advantage of the $99 deal. Both the Netflix and Youtube apps worked in 4K and matched the speed and performance of my LG OLED TV set. Unfortunately the Amazon app still has not been updated. Overall everything went very well and was a positive step forward.

    Update re Amazon.

    Just signed on after latest update. The Amazon app now plays in Ultra HD on the Bolt. It is actually faster than the native LG app.

    Same Bolt hardware is expected, but under the "Bolt Vox" name and includes a voice remote. Hydra UI by default.

    4K Mini Vox with voice is coming as well. Should have Bolt-level performance.

    They hopefully will be introducing yet this month or early next, for holiday sales . . . .

    No idea what version but it was playing in UHD from Amazon on my Bolts a few days ago. And my Bolts have not been updated in awhile.

    I didn't think the apps were tied to TiVo firmware any more - they're updated independently and/or downloaded on the fly.

    Right, but was curious if that was this case this time since there have been reports of 20.7.4.

    Quick question. After the Premiere is deactivated and I give it, or sell it, to someone. When they reactivate it will it be only showing active on their account or will it show activated on both of our accounts? I don't really want to see everything they do.

    Are you sure that a deactivated Premiere can be "reactivated"?

    Q: If Tivo's goal is to get all the out of date devices out of their support infrastructure, why would they re-activate it?

    A: They wouldn't.

    I deactivated a Premiere a few months ago and they wanted to know if I needed a number for the new user to use. I just put it in a box in case I need spare parts. If they offered a $99 AllIn I would have done it, but they refused.

    Is there a difference between canceling service on a unit vs having Tivo "deactivate" it?
