    A year ago I cancelled TV service and just used my bolt as an over the air tuner. Now I realize I don’t even use that much. Can I use it to watch the random tv show or set a recording time without the Tivo service?Thanks in advance.

    Yes.

    There's also a likelihood that TiVo could offer you an All-In offer when you call to cancel.

    $99 has been reported, but $180 is more likely.

    no to the second half of your question.

    DVR recording functions will not work without service. on older TiVo models, it used to be that recordings could be manually scheduled without having service, but that’s not been the case for a long time.

    $180 is a full year, I’m pretty sure by then no one will need to pay for this service. I’ve been with TiVo since 1999 but no longer see any value in it.

    If I cancel TiVo service can I just sign back up?

    Has anyone tried manual recordings, set up before cancelling? Will they continue to record the time slot?
