    Just got the email also. Here's what's in my cart using the TSN for my lifetime Premiere. I don't need the upgrade but this is tempting.

    $199.99 TiVo BOLT VOX 500GB
    $99.00 All-in service plan
    subtotal: $298.99 + tax

    The fine print:
    TiVo reserves the right to terminate this promotion at any time without notice. Offer ends August 7, 2018. Supplies limited. This is a limited time offer only available as part of this advertised promotion and all terms and conditions for the promotion apply. Qualifying Customers: Owners of TiVo Series 2, TiVo Series 3, TiVo HD, TiVo HDXL and TiVo Premiere series DVRs with Product Lifetime Service who have connected to a TiVo service between July 25, 2017 and July 25, 2018.

    This is tempting. $598 for the 3TB with All-in. Just not sure I want to totally give up my Premiere XL. It still works great, although there is some intermittent fan noise. I was waiting for a price like this on the Bolt, but thought I would keep the XL as a backup. OTOH, I have no use for a 2nd DVR.

    I already have a NIB Bolt 500GB. I have 4 qualifying TSNs. One is dead, so it's tempting to upgrade.

    I have two qualifying old units (an S2 and an S3).

    This sounds sick, but almost considering buying one just to keep the PLS alive because I know those old units are going to bite the dust soon.

    I have 4 qualifying TSNs. I couldn't tell from the email, but can I buy more than one?

    I would assume you can buy one per TSN. Probably need to do separate orders for each.

    Personally, I appreciated the fellow TCFer who, during a previous similar promo, proxied my BOLT w/ PLS purchase via their eligible unit ... for a nominal fee/profit.

    Thanks, I'll try that. Time to retire my 540 S2 and my OLED S3

    Just purchased 2 500gb Bolts. I have 3 qualifiying TSNs to use, 2 HDs and 1 Premiere XL. I added both units to the cart and entered in one of the TSNs from the HDs. It gave me the promo price for both units. So it seems like if you have a single qualifying unit you are able to purchase multiple Bolts. There's probably a limit tho.

    Tough call. I like my roamio pro, but I would like to upgrade to 4k someday where there's more content.

    Its very tempting. I have a Series 3 HD that I use for the 2 OTA stations I can get. But if I remember right if I want to upgrade the hard drive doesnt it require a different hard drive type and it isnt as easy to change out as the Roamio ones are?

    I did two orders, using a different TSN for each. The second order confirmation took a while to come through.

    Is there any way to take advantage of this without getting Hydra? Does the Vox come with Hydra and the white Bolt come with the classic UI, or are they both Hydra?

    Tempting... tempting. I have a lightly-in-use HD out in the Garage that qualifies....

    You can downgrade the OS, and should do so immediately before adding any recordings (you'll lose all those if you delay and opt to downgrade later).

    This looks inviting. Currently have a Roamio Plus connected to cable and a plain Roamio for OTA - both with lifetime. Got the offer that would use my old S3 TSN. I'm seriously thinking of canceling cable, so like the idea of a Bolt Vox that can be OTA, but don't like that it only has 4 tuners (not so much of an issue after cable is gone).

    My tentative plane would be but the Bolt 500G, stick in a 3TB drive. Transfer my recordings from the Roamio Plus, then sell the Plus and hope what I get for it offsets the new purchase.

    Can the Vox be downgraded to the old interface? If not, that would be a deal-killer.

    Any other concerns I should be considering?

    The white in the offer appears to be the Non-VOX model (same price as the black VOX)

    I have two eligible units in the eBay forum. I'm willing to chat about what fee might be warranted over in that thread.
