    When trying to order a TiVo BOLT VOX 3TB from Tivo's website, one gets:
    "This item is out of stock, please remove the item before the final checkout."

    Best Buy does not have it either.

    Both have the the 1TB and 500GB.

    Does anyone know if the 3TB is temporarily out of stock or permanently out of stock?

    thanks

    I would not buy from Amazon. To many issues with fraud.

    Not sure if it's official but they might've let stock deplete since Arris took over making hardware.

    I called 1-877-BUY-TIVO (yes, might not always get the straight answer there).
    But the party line is that they sold out due to holiday promotions - one should see the 3TB showing up online within a few weeks.
    Who knows...

    Have you had it 6 months. Their are threads on scam sellers and the issues don't show for months.

    This one is shipped and sold by amazon (not a 3rd party) and includes Prime shipping. I doubt amazon would defraud @CAG45. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075SL6N8H/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

    Amazon has the easiest return policy ever. If it isn’t right send it back

    This has been reported in some other threads and apparently has something to do with Amazon mixing TiVo return stock for their own sales and 3rd party sellers that they handle (and scams involving purchases with stolen cards I believe which get returned).

    Obviously it hasn't been a huge number but I seem to recall 2 or 3 users reporting an issue.

    You always could get the least expensive Bolt possible and then buy and replace the hard drive yourself. Typically, way cost-effective.

    Might be due to the availability of the 3TB drives.

    Good point. Which 3 TB should I buy that they use or is an AV drive?
