    It has been a while but I believe I took the card from the Fios store and just plunked it into my Bolt and ran the screens.

    I guess like whether it can use wifi, and just generally how it works and whatnot.

    from the videos it seems it the current hardware with voice added wifi is not the best for streaming if you have a large house

    I wasn't here when that decision was made, so I can't answer. And, the person who made the decision was gone. I agree with you that it is a bit confusing, although honestly I thought the naming of BOLT and BOLT+ was a bit confusing as well until I understood that the + was a carryover from Roamio Plus.

    In Apps, 20.7.2.RC2 added two check boxes: Hydra Upgrade App and Hydra Downgrade App. What do those boxes do?

    I just bought a new Bolt a week ago. $219 for the 1TB. I think I can still return it and get the new one. Worth it?

    Past posts from TiVo have indicated the Bolt hardware is HDR capable but apps will need to be updated to support.

    The MSRP for the 1TB Vox will be $300, so no it won't be worth it. If you decide you want Hydra with voice, grab the new Vox remote for $40.

    They have a nice automated system on FiOS now for repairing. So while you can take a CC out of one Tivo and put it in another and see most of the channels. You won't seek everything until it is paired. Channels like Cinemax, HBO, and FoX channels like National Geographic.

    @TiVo_Ted Can you confirm Hydra allows for downloading of shows via the iOS 11 app in the same manner as it does now?

    I use that a lot to take shows on my phone to the gym and would hate to see that not work with Hydra (actually, it would prevent me from switching UI's for sure).

    Correct. We found a QAM-only tuner that was 8-tuner, but CableCARD limits us to 6. There was no feasible way to get past 4 with ATSC.

    That actually would have been pretty cool. Two separate tuners, software switchable. Bolt Plus model with 8-tuner ATSC AND 6-tuner QAM/CableCARD. Wouldn't have been as drop-in for the current hardware design though.

    I probably shouldn't tell you guys this, but we do actually have an 8-tuner BOLT
