    Doesn't hurt. Some old TiVo's have had a few issues getting past the update phase when left offline long enough (of course those have been older S2/S3 with versions prior to Rovi metadata). And in case they do offer a Roamio "One in a lifetime" sale, he's all set. :)

    If that's the case it would appear to be a failure, since the Vox units sold out first.

    It actually can, as every power cycle you run a risk of it not powering up successfully.

    If TiVo stops taking orders on the Vox version on the last day of a $99 lifetime deal, they are more likely to move the white non-Vox units. I think its possibly a strategy, because there's no option to backorder the Vox units.

    That makes sense. I'm disappointed they aren't taking backorders. I really wanted a 6-tuner model and I'm not seeing much point in replacing my Roamio Basic with a white Bolt.

    possibly an option. I was able to go into the tivo outlet, add a refurb Roamio Pro with my qualified TSN and it shows in my cart as $99 lifetime, total of $398.

    Was on the fence about pulling the trigger. Lack of stock makes the decision easy. No way I am settling for a 4 tuner Bolt.

    My concern is/was that if I don't keep it somewhat current on calling in that its TSN won't be eligible when there's a sale for whatever the next generation of hardware Tivo puts out (should they do so). I have a Tivo 2 on the shelf that didn't get picked up for this sale because it hadn't called in in the last year.

    True, but I'd hope that's a pretty minuscule chance. :)

    thought id share, this is kind of funny.
    I was following this thread earlier this afternoon you guys alerted me to the Vox being out of stock which prompted me to open my browser tab I had open where I still had the 3 tb 6 tuner Vox in my shopping cart for $650 after ca tax . I was then able to check out Successfully like an hour or so after they ran out of stock. Kind of funny I thought I didn't think it would go through. I was hoping to be able to sell my upgraded 2TB vox 1st though. Now I've got too many Tivos. I used discover. Does anyone know does discover still offer price protection can this 3 tb vox be found elsewhere cheaper? I guess if I can't find a buyer for my 2TB Vox ill return my 3TB one within the 30 day return window

    Tivo Bolt page indicates all models are sold out.
    Perhaps a new model is on the product horizon?
    Hence the inventory blow out? Who knows?

    Then I wonder how Tivo is going to send me replacement 500GB Bolt?

    I read online that Tivo is exiting the "box making business". They arranged for another company to build
    and sell the Tivo boxes from now on.

    I think that Tivo is just clearing out their inventory of "boxes" and this new "un-named" company will start
    suppling any future orders that come in.

    I was just thinking the other day that the Bolt was released about 3 years ago and TiVo comes out with a new series about every 3-4 years. It's certainly possible that new hardware is forthcoming.

    It's a waste of time and effort and accomplishes next to nothing

    I'm sure they have separate stock for warranty replacements

    It's been a number of years since I had to return a DOA unit, but at that time, TiVo wanted to send a refurb unit. I had to fight to get a new one, and that was when Premieres were new to the market.

    TiVo reports earnings tomorrow, August 8th. This sale was to pump profits and sales before that report. Hope TiVo survives.
