    1) I used to dutifully compete the monthly TiVo Advisor Survey. I have not been sent one since April.

    2) Can't remember the last software update we've received.

    3) @Tivodesign (Margret) hasn't tweeted this month (August). Perhaps she was laid off.

    I would buy a bolt but won't knowing Rovi is already killing this technology we love. There will be no Bolt Pro, no more software updates, soon no more TiVo.

    I have an advisors survey email from June. Software updates have been more minor/incremental lately. I don't believe they've included the typical large message banner with new features, but they are definitely still happening. TivoMargret posted to this forum a week or so ago requesting people with Series 2 and Series 3 devices to contact the beta team (presumably related to transitioning guide data).

    The sky is not falling.

    Which was all of 5 business days ago. Every here of things like vacations or not having anything new to tweet about? The last software update was less than 3 months ago, plus they have added new streaming apps within the last month.

    I received a survey in the last few days.

    Margret severely curtailed her tweeting about a year ago. Not sure if she lost interest, was asked not to tweet so much, or simply doesn't have time.

    Tivo Advisors panel members are rotated from time to time, no big deal.

    I received a survey less than 2 weeks ago. Wouldn't worry about your other 2 points either.

    There is no Rovi, The new company is Tivo, and Tivo wont kill itself. Its not a suicidal religious fanatic.

    It's only the first week of August.

    No, seriously, I've gotten the Advisor Surveys the month after - they can be quite tardy. I think I've gotten ones close to the end of the following month...

    I think you might mean...."TiVo retail hardware is dead!" since the name TiVo has been adopted by the new merged company.
