Since when does Amazon pre-announce new models? They don't.
In my experience, it oftentimes does for products.
Interesting. Amazon announces a new product before the manufacturer does.
well the do have a listing for the vox version also, so the vox is still not available while the white 1st gen Bolt will be back in stock the 26th.
Could you post the Amazon link to the Vox?
Indeed, Amazon might have a product page up for ("pre-announce," in your words) a product not yet available for sale--I don't know if that's been before, at the same time as, and/or after the manf. has put a product page up at it's own website, if any. And the Bolt Vox already has been spotted at Best Buy.
Maybe, or maybe they'll redirect that page to a Bolt Vox page on the 26th, or whenever.
You don't know, I don't know, no one here knows anything except theres a strong appearance that new TiVo SKUs will be coming soon.
Tivo Mini is similar - it was hovering around $150 for a long time, then started going down in price about a month ago. Now it's out of stock (at Amazon), and third parties are asking more than retail. Amazon said it would be back in stock Nov 1, although now even that mention is gone.
Who cares about the status of every standard BOLT model. The whole point of the thread is there's a NEW SKU hitting the retailers, and it's that product that is relevant. And the screenshot you took is of a standard 500GB BOLT, not the upcoming Vox model.
I'd characterize the "trigger conditions" as "speculation" and that person was clearly referring to the new Vox model, not the status of pre-Vox BOLTs. Oh, and that someone was me.
My conclusion is that the screenshot is of an ad for a white 500GB BOLT, and so is immaterial to the discussion of when the BOLT Vox might be available. YMMV.
You forgot the word "again."
NEW! tivo bolt vox at best buy
We will see on the 26th what, and who, is immaterial.
You're some Tivo shepherd.
I'll state that the current URL for the white 500GB BOLT will definitely not be redirected by Amazon to the new BOLT Vox. If anything, the white BOLT may eventually be listed as unavailable. Well, at least not intentionally; gotta account for human error, just read this thread.
On this we agree.
Yeah, pretty much am. Have to hit my TiVo DVRs every Sunday since the Rovi guide migration to make sure they're on track to record as planned.
Thanks for noticing, and apology accepted. Cheers!
Hey, the Vox *could* be released on the 26th, or before, or after. But that won't change the accuracy of earlier assertions.
The comment in this post was a declaration that the BOLT Vox would be "in stock Oct 25th," per Amazon, later updated to Oct 26th -- when there is no information from Amazon, whatsoever, on the availability of the Vox model.
Honestly, you seem to have acknowledged that the screenshot is of a white 500GB BOLT. So what is the rationale behind attributing this as a date certain for the release of the BOLT Vox?
Sorry, I left out "...and krkaufman doesn't know, either."
Weakness showing (with wrong photo) that the price of the Mini Vox 4K is $179.

This post by @BigJimOutlaw seems relevant to this discussion. (from the TiVo Mini Vox thread)
"A lot of companies announce new products at the end of September or early October just in time for Best Buy's shelf reset for the holiday sales."
