    My 500gb Bolt arrived this afternoon and it's running fine-and with a quiet cooling fan.:)
    It has a 3-17-17 mfg date and looks new to me. Perhaps it was a quickie RMA return. I felt a twinge of sadness, as I disconnected my old 2004 Series 2- she was as steady as my old 54 Chevy.

    My 500GB Bolt is being delivered today. After the last lifetime transfer promo, I dug up cords and USB NIC and got an old 40 gig series 2 connecting so that it'd be eligible; it wasn't connected to a video source for recording.

    After I get the Bolt running, I'm going to upgrade the HD to 3TB. It will make a nice addition to the cord cut, OTA Roamio+minis setup we have in the 2nd house. We already have cable for internet and a 4K TV, so it's a logical upgrade.

    The Filipina CSRs were understandable and competent, but I would have appreciated a confirmation email after my first call. Something like "Due to the overwhelming response to our 2nd Chance Transfer Sale, we'll be calling you back to finalize the order. The promotional transfer pricing will be honored, and the 6/30 activation requirement for the Summer Meltdown Sale will be waived." It would have saved them having to field a call back from me.

    I got my Bolt and Mini setup. I have to say that I was extremely pleased with how easy it was to get the Cablecard moved to the Bolt via Fios. I called 1-888-897-7499, followed the prompts and about 15 minutes after I hung up I could get HBO on the Bolt. I remember when I tried setting up the Cablecard on my HD 9 years ago it was a complete mess. What a relief.

    So far I'm really happy with the Bolt/Mini, returning a FIOS STB today.

    Received confirmation that "returned device was received by TiVo on 07/07/2017'. It was actually delivered on 7/06 at 1203PM. And of course, I have to "allow approximately 7-10 business days" for the refund. :mad:

    That's almost exactly the way mine arrived. Looks perfect, has that same manufacturing date. I have it up and running and it's terrific so far. (At the moment I don't have a cable to connect it to my antenna but that'll be fixed shortly). I have to say I'm rather pleased with it. The Netflix/Amazon/Vudu integration seems rather nice from the few minutes I spent playing with it. Alas, Vudu doesn't support UHD on the TiVo but both Netflix and Amazon appear to, so that was a pleasant surprise.

    When did the Bolt start supporting 4K Amazon? That has been something we've been waiting for since October 2015.

    Well, just to follow up, I am pleased that my refurb Roamio Pro was delivered today and after transferring the shows, OnePass list via the online interface and a 10 min call to Comcast, I'm up and running!

    Looks like you are right. I saw the UHD labels on the shows, which Amazon generally hides on non-UHD players, so assumed. Played one and it came down at 1080p instead, so I was mistaken. Sorry.

    Just to let you guys know, I ordered a new Bolt 1tb box and used my Tivo HD TSN as a promo code and it gave me the $99 all in price. I just did this 10 minutes so if anyone is interested, it still works. So my my total was $421 for Bolt 1tb box and All in Service.

    Today's the day (July 31) ... did anyone's box get deactivated today?

    FYI - I bought two Bolt 500GBs in April (shipped in May). All four of my S2 and S3 boxes are still active.

    Does this mean you have the power to log on and delete everything from their "My Shows" if you wanted to?

    I can select the unit but there are no shows or one passes that currently show up.

    Considering it was just added, I suspect it was a machine that was just shipped out. Give it a week and you can probably schedule and control their box...

    Appreciate the update. Will be very curious if only 2nd offer bolts deactivate on 8/15. My bolt is from the first offer and TiVo HD is still active (and no email).

    Has anyone had their TiVo deactivated today? If yes, from the original (march/april) offer or the 2nd chance offer?
