    Anyone have anything tips for getting a deal on a Tivo Bolt +. I tweeted at Tivo and they told me to call the 800 number. They had nothing to offer. Really want to upgrade my Romio Plus. I really don't want to pay full price.

    Thanks!
    Rob

    Get a job at a high profile national newspaper as a tech journalist and write a disinterested, poorly researched article dismissing TiVo as a viable home entertainment solution. Unfortunately, that you're aware of the BOLT+ product indicates that your knowledge of the TiVo product line post-dates 2010, so you may be working from a distinct disadvantage.

    You're a very bad person. No Bolt for you. ;)
    Might I ask why you want to move to a Bolt? Absent a more limited number of circumstances, one wonders if there is enough value there to (justify) the expenditure.

    Of course, new toys always are fun. :)

    I'm not buying at current prices and because of limited 4K content. Why not invest in a 4K/UHD Blu-ray player in the meantime?

    The best deal on a Bolt+ is not to buy one. If you havn't done so already dropping a 3TB hard drive into your Roamio Plus gives you the same thing in more reliable packaging.

    Every once in a while TiVo runs a sale, however I have not seen the TiVo Bolt plus sold at special price. They had a great deal last year for a Roamio pro all in for $500. I personally love TiVo and have been an owner since day one. The TV world seems to be changing constantly and TiVo may soon be gone like the VCR. Spending $1100 for a all in unit is a huge investment and gamble. I have invested around $1100 in my current set up and I'm very happy.
    I have a TiVo Roamio Pro, five TiVo Minis, TiVo XL4.
    The seven TVs all have DVR functionality and would cost me around $150 extra monthly.

    that's the newest one so until they release a new model if they do or release via a third party I don't see them offering any specicals
