    Well, after waiting 15 min by phone, everything went through. So, my new Bolt Vox is coming. I'm wondering if my problem stems from having Macs at home. I did turn off all the blockers and made sure cookies functionedbut it still wouldn't work. Thank goodness for phone orders. She tried to get me to buy an extended warranty. Is it worth it? 2 years 29.99, 3 years 39.99. How reliable have these new Bolts been?

    If I knew for sure that the refurbished units qualified, it'd really be tempting.

    How does that work? I have a couple Lifetime HDs that qualify, but they're extra and I don't need another new Tivo.

    Would I have to ship it to someone and transfer the TSN before the sale is over? Could we skip shipping it and just transfer the TSN?

    Sure wish my old HD 20hr from 2004 qualified. I'd jump on it in a nano second! Alas, the only unit that qualifies for this deal is a Premiere XL from 2012. That unit has a lifetime (all in) subscription and is working just fine. It's networked with the other tivos and is used mainly for storage.

    Questions as per warranty---I always spring for the $39, 3 yr warranty, but it's only good for a one time fix, use it once and it's gone. I have my boxes plugged into UPS supplies to try and negate, power surges and power blips that needlessly recycle the box. We have a lot of lightning here.
    It took me three attempts yesterday to get my order to go through, then after midnight, the order completed.

    My previously transferred Premiere was still showing up on my "My TiVos" page but was not listed in the eligible TSNs for this offer.

    I was hoping the group could provide some advice. I have a Premiere Elite (4 tuners, 2TB) with PLS that I'm very happy with. I've got a Mini on a 2nd TV, and a Stream for app viewing. I'm trying to figure the long-term benefits of upgrading.
    4K-compatibility would be one, although that doesn't impact me at the moment.
    Voice remote
    Could upgrade to 6 tuners, 3TB.
    I imagine the hardware would be faster.
    I'd have the Hydra interface as an option, but it seems many people don't care for it.
    Even with a good deal, I'm struggling to see the benefits. Plus I'd have to transfer all my saved shows to the new box, which I imagine is possible, but also a place where things could go wrong.
    Since several people on this thread have jumped on this deal - what am I missing? Is it more if you have an older box with PLS, and you want to move that to a current-gen TiVo to preserve value?
    Thanks for your advice!

    Now that they added skipmode to the Premieres, the benefits of upgrading aren't quite as big. Did they ever add quickmode to Premieres? That feature is one I like but that doesn't seem to get much love. And yes, the Bolt hardware performance is faster than the Premiere. If you want 2 more tuners, you could go for the 6-tuner Bolt, or if you want the ability to do OTA, you could get one of the 4-tuner Bolts.

    We didn't know this deal was going to come back, but we're sure happy it did!

    Btw, we've heard that people are concerned that their current eligible boxes will be deactivated on September 7th. If you select the TSN promo code from your old TiVo to get this great deal, then, your older TiVo will be scheduled for deactivation after purchase. If you do nothing, then, it will continue running as it was.

    We intentionally gave people 30 days to set up and transfers their shows.

    I don’t remember, exactly, but I believe we were able to coordinate the purchase so that it was charged to my credit card and shipped to my address. I’ll check my emails to see if we also had to transfer ownership after the unit arrived at my place.

    edit: p.s. Oh, and the physical donor unit never changed hands. I don’t know what the seller ended-up doing with it, or even if its service plan was terminated per the terms of the promo. (My BOLT still works and has All-In service, so I’m good.)

    Hi Nick. There are a lot of "we" in your post. Does that mean you have a TiVo connection?

    Anyone with a valid TSN can purchase using the TSN as the discount code.

    Don't post your TSN publicly if it is eligible!

    Heh, I was thinking the same thing, that maybe his username should have been TiVo_Nick. And looks like his only other post, a year ago announcing another sale, may have gone off-target:

    If anyone has a TSN# to spare and not going to use it, if you would let me know it would be appreicated. Feel free to send me a private message.

    I made this mistake on the TSN promo code - I added the dashes. Don't put the dashes in and it will work like a charm. How could you not take advantage of this if you have a premiere or older.

    I have a couple of Series 3's that I'm still very content with for recording OTA. Both have newer HD's and power supplies with replaced capacitors, so I'm not so worried about their longevity. However, I am concerned about Tivo deciding to render them obsolete at some point. I don't want to replace them now, but what are the chances that Tivo is going to pull the plug on them without offering Series 3 owners one last chance to upgrade with a promotion like this?

    Same here. The only one in the offer is one that hasn't been used as a donor yet. I haven't tried but I assume the previously transferred unite still work since they're still shown in my account.
