    Just want to comment on how slow XL is compared to XL4 > Roamio Pro > Bolt+. With each iteration TiVo has gotten faster. Any fence sitters reading this should note that the Bolt+ is significantly faster than XL and noticeably faster than Roamio. It was hard to discern the quality improvement that I have experienced from reading other posts on this topic.

    Additional pluses:
    -RF remote for Bolt+ and Mini ver 2 (930000)
    -Faster streaming, especially from Amazon Prime Video.
    -Updates install faster.
    -Commercial skip same and Roamio.
    -Scrolling my shows and pytivo downloads are much faster (cat 6 ethernet).
    -Using the Bolt+ is just a much more pleasant experience compared to older models mentioned.

    I still use all models listed. The older models are set and forget to capture TV series or movie genre that I transfer to the Bolt+.
