    Is it in recent active use (has it connected within the past year)?

    I don't know but they might have moved on to Premieres for the offers. I don't think you can activate a Series 3 any more.

    I would try ordering it online and then at checkout use your TSN in the link marked Have a promo code?

    If it works the checkout amount be $450 less.

    It appears that the Summer Breeze offer finally died. I checked a TSN that worked earlier last week, but it no longer worked on Friday.

    My Bolt+ is very quiet. Wonder if TiVo changed fans or hard drives?

    I'd call TiVo. I bought 2 500GB Bolts during the offer, and they are both quiet.

    They are shipping me a replacement. I have two bolts which are nearly silent, but this one buzzes and is annoying. It sounds like a fan with a bad bearing almost like it can't maintain speed. It could be the drive too though or a combination.

    It's neither actually. The buzzing comes from the motherboard, but only when a fan (any fan) is plugged in.

    While this may be true, watched the youtube videos already, I can hear the hard drive spinning also.

    I tried that no luck though. I tried online chat twice with different agents. I called in like 3 times speaking with a different person each time and still couldn't convince any of them to let me get the deal unfortunately.

    snerd I am opted in and it even connected earlier this year when I hooked up for a guest to use for a week. So I am unsure why I didn't get it.

    I never get the TiVo emails or notices either. I rely on this forum for that info.

    Yeah, I was just lucky to stumble across this thread while the offer was still going. At one point I was a beta tester and got tons of email but it all stopped at some point.

    I think I might just be cursed and give up on a new TiVo. Box came in and I hooked it up. Noisy but no where near as noisy. More importantly though after several hours I can't get the CableCARD to pair.

    It was a brand new card. I finally got it today on chat support. The card wouldn't take activation at first and then it finally did an hour later. Then it wouldn't pair so we repeated everything. This still didn't work so they sent a reboot command and finally that worked. Total time spent 6 hours.

    Last year they had Roamio OTAs for $199 on cyber Monday and you didn't even have to trade in a lifetime subscription. I would think there would be some sort of similar deep discount this year also.

    I just received an email saying the deactivation will be postponed a day until tomorrow for my TiVo. But I did not utilize this promotion. Did I get this email in error then? Any way to see if my subscription will be deactivated?
