    We got our Bolt Vox back in 2018, and it is showing issues.
    Thinking of getting new Edge.
    Back in 2018, there were issues transfering recordings to the Bolt,

    Has Tivo fixed this yet?

    If you are referring to recordings only running for about 10 minutes when transferring from TE3 to TE4, I don't think so.

    To define: TE3 = V20.7x TE4 = v21.x (AKA Hydra) of the Tivo running software as shown in System Information.

    To transfer shows on TE3, its simply to go to the bottom of the Play list and select the device (Provided sharing is enabled on your account)
    On TE4, you have to use to transfer shows.

    PC-to-Tivo transfers is possible only on TE3 and the PC must be running a server type program such as PyTivo (Tivo Desktop is no longer supported, so not possible to pay/get a key for plus version which adds more video types for transfers)

    Bolts VOX are usually running TE4, may be possible to revert to TE3 but you would lose some features such as the voice function.

    Edge cannot revert to TE3.

    You would not be able to transfer from a Series 3 or older unsupported Tivo to a TE4 Tivo because they would not be listed on
