    TiVo's user agreement says basically they don't have to provide service whenever they decide they don't like the cut of your jib.

    Is a jib something you wear?

    People who own sailboats do. In the 17th century the shape of the jib sail often identified a vessel's nationality. You would know this if you owned a Google.

    I don't think you meant the phrase literally and Mike seemed to be joking. I was just playing along.

    Now you've ruined it. Does anyone remember what we were discussing?

    I'm Having a problem getting my Bolt to work with my new LG OLED (OLED55C7P). I get the " Almost there" message then the screen goes to the default background and the TV indicates "no signal".. Any suggestions? I Tried the "HDMI Ultra HD Deep Color" setting and it doesn't seem to matter.

    UPDATE:
    Seems that my problem is with the Denon receiver that I'm using. Direct connect to the TV and it works fine. I'll be buying one of those splitters that everyone is using for their Samsung TVs. Too bad. I had a Samsung and bought this because of the problems that I read about here.....go figure.

    Have you tried starting with some basic setup like 720p only, then working your way up?

    I have a 5 to 8 year old Onkyo 1100 model AVR that has processed the signal and worked with series 3-6 no problems with various Samsung "smart" TVs.

    Does your Denon have a pass thru mode?

    Yes, unfortunately it only works when the Denon is in Standby Mode. Not really a solution in this case. I use my Bolt as a multimedia center. I run Plex Server and use the Plex app on the TiVo to play all of my music and a lot of TV shows. Thanks for the idea though. :)

    Yeah, and I am not really attached to my Premiers as I am to my beautiful S3 648's with the still VERY USEFULL OLED display of what is recording. The idea of trading my S4's with the limiting 2 tuners for S6 Bolts with the additional tuners for a total of 4 tuners (I would require only the basic because I use TiVo's for OTA recordings) makes sense--until the huge cost is factored. Fortunately, since the S4's were upgraded to Haxe, the Premiers work well for me, and I am not interested in the TiVo OTA because as good a value as it is, it isn't worth the price per OTA box S4 platform to replace perfectly functional Premieres, but a cheap enough deal to S6 tech in the Bolts, that is worth thinking about, but not at the current upgrade pricing.

    Such a serviceable box to waste as a door stop!

    I tried like hell to get the $99.00 transfer deal to no avail.
    Pre-ordered a vox mini instead.

    The new fan is supposed to be quieter, and possibly more efficient. I can't tell on the latter, as I installed my cable card, after the fact, and it's a major contributor to heat.

    Your receiver is only HDMI 1.4.

    It expired a few weeks ago. Unless they bring it back again you're out of luck.

    Has anyone who took the deal checked to see if the lifetime on the Premiere was deactivated Oct. 31? Am very curious about that.

    Thanks, if anyone else checks please post. Most of the S2/S3s from the earlier deals still show lifetime I know, the only one of MINE that got deactivated was after I called and specifically told them to deactivate it (as I had others on my account and wanted to make sure the right one got deactivated). Other family members who transferred all S2 to Bolts still show lifetime on the S2s.
