    Is this the mini wireless adapter perhaps?

    Is there a way to back into when the TiVo BOLT name was trademarked and when the product was actually released?

    Registered June 14, 2016. Launched end of September.

    The Vox line was registered a month before launch. And the Roamio name was registered after the launch. So there's nothing particularly consistent.

    Probably not? Did some more digging: "ethernet-over-coaxial adapters; digital electronic devices for networking digital video recorders"

    Wifi or wireless doesn't seem to be a tag.

    But yeah, that Mini wireless thing is due too.

    Maybe it just doesn't have a fancy name they need to trademark?

    Correction/clarification: applications for the registration of various TIVO EDGE trademarks have been filed. And note: none has been granted (trademark applications filed at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office go through a rigorous review process--it is not at all automatic).

    Since they have a trademark on "TiVo" would anyone else really be able to use the term "TiVo Edge" anyway?

    Looks like Tivo’s Are ~25% off. Could this be the sell off of inventory before a refresh?

    May have spoke to soon. Mini’s aren’t on sale and the cable boxes are receiving the same discount

    Not TIVO EDGE, but certainly EDGE if they had rights to it before TiVo (and then being able to stop TiVo from using TIVO EDGE), in the same or a related product/services field.

    That's such a basic word in the English language I can’t see how someone could get a trademark on just "edge".

    In checking just now, there are 117 current, distinct federal registrations for the trademark EDGE. This doesn't include registrations that were granted previously but since have expired, or registrations that include the term "Edge" with other components. ;)

    The earliest of the lot (with which I'm personally aware, as one of its consumers):

    I just meant the word "edge" all by itself.

    I don't think you could get a copyright on "Edge" if it was for a DVR. If it was a lawnmower, then yes.
