He signed off as nick @ TiVo - as such I assume he works at TiVo. Hence my reply.
Agreed, didn't think it was likely and wouldn't be upset if it just wasn't on the sale page. They don't owe me a discount. My objection is the used car salesman like behavior of putting it on the sale page. I don't do things like that in my Buisness and expect better behavior. But I am idealistic like that
I understood what he was referring to, but his comments were repeatedly directed at "you," as though TCF was TiVo. If the OP wants to communicate with TiVo, a post within a thread on TCF isn't likely to get the job done.
As for the angst of the BOLT+ being listed on the sale page, same goes for the other products listed that aren't on sale: the TiVo Mini and Slide Pro remote. Yes, all 3 of these products are listed on the sale page, but none of them have the big red "sale" triangle associated with their display. There's plenty to deride TiVo for nowadays, but this seems petty.
Excellent point; I hadn't noticed the "Nick @ TiVo" sign-off. I'll leave my other posts as-is, to endure the deserved embarrassment.
I am not in the market for a Bolt but that is the best deal I can recall.
I've been keeping an aging Tivo HD running for some time, replacing parts as needed - but I just ordered the refurb 1TB Bolt w/ lifetime @ $500 before tax. Looked like a darn good deal to me.
In for a Roamio. Tough deciding between that and the Bolt deal, but I already have a Stream, don't need 4k, and I really wanted Lifetime so I now have 4 Roamios. Just need to order a 3 TB drive and I'll be at 9.5 TB.
I've never bought a TiVo-renewed device before. Are they good? Also, is it still worth getting All-in these days? My Series 3 OLED still works great (monthly) but Comcast made it obsolete with their MPEG-4 conversion. I'm just concerned that the Bolt will be made obsolete down the road due to TiVo not supporting it, or Comcast changing their signal. Granted, this might take many years, and with this deal it will take 2 years to make up the difference compared to an annual plan. I'm not one to sell my TiVo's so the resale value is not a factor for me. So it okay to get a TiVo-renewed Bolt? Thanks.
Nick, many thanks to your marketing department for sending me 10 emails in a row about the sale. Seriously?
Stream and Moca are missing. One of my mini's is coax only. So I would need a Moca adapter too.
Going to downgrade to a Bolt and sell my Roamio Plus. Gain OTA and lose 2 tuners that I don't need.
Only difference between a new and renewed unit is the TSN will have an extra 1. It will probably also be shipped in a brown box. It will look brand new.
At the regular price, I'm not so sure it's a slam dunk anymore... but with that $200 discount, it's only going to take me a bit more than two years to recoup the cost. That makes a lot of sense to me.
Tax for me on Renewed Bolt 500GB All in was $2.90. ?? Gotta be a mistake.
Edit: they only charged tax on the hardware @$99
Thanks for replies and assurance. I just placed the order for the Bolt 1TB All-in.
Lucky you. I was charged sales tax on the hardware and service.
Bought a renewed Roamio last year - works fine. Just bought a second one.
I got one 1 email. I saw the deal on FaceBook first.
Ok, i succumbed and ordered Bolt+ and a mini, i realized they were going to charge me WA state tax (which makes no sense to me) so I am ordering via amazon as i have until Jan 31st to return unit and i get free next day delivery via prime.
This sale was perfect timing. I'm in for a Bolt 1TB refurb all-in.
Be aware that for OTA, the Roamio has a far better tuner. I have far more trouble with botched recordings on my Bolt than on the roamio or premiere.
Good deal on a 2 or 4 TB upgrade drive
2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive(STDR2000100) $70 + Free Shipping
2TB for $69 is better than the Tivo $50 upsell for 1GB
