    So earlier this month I discovered my series 3 no longer gets local HD channels because FiOS switched them to MPEG4. So i called Tivo to ask if there was anything they could do and the associate said they would be running a summer sale starting the 22 of July and I could transfer the S3 lifetime for one time $99 fee...It's a limited time/inventory sale so if you have been holding out on your Series 3 or Tivo HD upgrade now...

    Got me :)
    I am finally going 4K.

    Kinda cool of the TiVo rep to let you know about an upcoming sale.

    On the phone when I was adding a mini she was VERY emphatic about clarifying that i need a wired connection for the mini...I giggled and said "I know, I have Ethernet"

    The $99 lifetime transfer deal is active/official. If you are interested check the "buy/sell" forum (not the ebay forum), I have 4 S2s that qualify available in the Chicago area. I have enough Tivos............

    TiVo Roamios aren’t listed in the fine print. Anyone know if they are included?

    Not once but twice, the ad states your box will be shut down on July 2018. August 20 or July 30. I guess if the year is wrong the day and month dont matter.

    I don't think so though if you talk to CS they might make an exception. Seeing as lifetime Roamios still have a good amount of value, myself I would only trade in an S2 or S3 (maybe a two tuner basic Premiere)

    Seeking clarification... clicking the 500GB and 1TB options bounces the DVR description between “TiVo BOLT 500GB” and “TiVo BOLT VOX 1TB.”

    Is the omission of “VOX” from the 500GB description a clerical error, or is the 500GB model truly VOX-less?

    edit: Answered ... adding the 500GB box to my shopping cart lists it as a VOX unit, “TiVo BOLT VOX 500GB.”

    I was told on the phone to expect my S3 to be deactivated 8/22 and the new Bolt would be active as soon as I connect.
    Bingo!


    Doing that as you type :)

    I noticed in the link that when you click on "tech specs" & scroll down to where it says "Adding TIVO Mini Vox", it states that it has Component & Composite video outputs...obviously that's NOT correct - right??? :confused:

    Don't be so picky. That Mini pictured is an A93 Mini, so the outputs are correct. :)

    - I'm ALWAYS picky when it comes down to certain specs...that while they might NOT be important to YOU...MIGHT be important to others! I actually brought a couple extra non-VOX mini's, SPECIFICALLY for keeping the analog compatibility. So that's why I gave this a double-take when I read the specs.
    - How would some people know which WAS correct - the (not important to you) specs, or the friggen picture - BOTH of which were supplied by Tivo???

    But thanks anyway for giving a provider a pass on getting some even basic specs correct... :rolleyes:
