Bolt Vox OTA can't either.
Glad you are back (and in good health) to clear some things up. You already answered most of my questions but I and many others have one more. Will this be coming to Roamio boxes as well? Most people so far seem to have Bolts. Tivo customer service just says "eligible boxes". Thanks for your time!

Never really saw the auto skipping as a big deal. As long as you can skip with a simple button.
Can you comment on the possibility that ads may later be inserted within the show?
So, who's with me to file a class action lawsuit?
On what grounds?
"Modernize"? That's an interesting way to use the word modernize.
techspot.com says, "The company intends to roll out the commercials to users still on TiVo Experience 3 at a later date. So not updating to the latest software is not a way to avoid the ads."
This directly contradicts what Tivo Ted told us.
I would do what ever it takes to keep TiVo a float. I'm a TiVoite for life. I've seen the other options and they are scary as hell.
With the risk of being shamed - how do you know if you have TE3? I currently have three Premier XL units, all with Lifetime service. So far, I've seen no preroll ads.
As I purchased a lifetime subscription, how will I benefit?
Doesn't matter. Won't actually be me, but will be someone else. Just wait.
For those of us that purchased our TiVo: why not make the ads an opt-in choice? We either paid for lifetime or are paying monthly. I don't think we deserve ads too.
Also, why not make the opt-out choice a check box on our account page? Easier for us, less load on your telephone support team.
Premiere are series 4 units. TE4 only runs on series 5 (Roamio) or later, so you're safe (for now) until/if TiVo decides to update TE3 to include this "feature" as well.
I would say that's a very safe guess.
I would rather deal with higher costs than have advertising shoved down my throat. You have NO concept how pissed off I am about this whole thing. Unbelievable. I purchased a tivo so I could watch recorded content, and eliminate ads. Clearly someone at TIVO is ignoring the whole reason we all became tivo customers in the first place.......
They can but will just be a waste even in the small chance it would be won because plaintiffs would receive $1.50 or some such ridiculous amount.
This comes up often, we are much more than few dozen TiVo owner. We may not be the many stuck with a dying technology. It's obviously a "deadman walking" plan that only further convinces me that Rovi is not in it for the long game and is continually shorting the company.
What a retail tech company does when it's not in the hands of bunch of vultures, is it keep innovation fresh. If it can't sell in retail, they change the product quickly until it does sell.
Careful. It is a Terms of Service Violation to either file a class action OR participate in one, so if Tivo has a way to find out if you participated, they''ll likely terminate your service (which yes, they can do if you violate the TOS EVEN IF YOU PAID FOR LIFETIME).
If they are really going through the process of bringing these pre-roll ads to TE3, the least they can do is put in autoskip as a small consolation prize. I've seen many posts of others lamenting no more upgrades to TE3 for so long. It's the old be careful what you wish for...
