  1. TiVo Bolt DVR/Streamer
    I have a Bolt+ from 2017 and four lights started flashing yesterday.This unit isn't 4k but it has lifetime subscription service. Not sure it's worth replacing the hard drive? I could have them do it at the local computer place, I think. More details: Been wanting to say farewell to Charter...

    Sorry if this is TL;DR. I'm just sharing my frustrations and looking for advice... I bought a TiVo Bolt+ (3TB) back in April 2017. The HD failed on it 18 months later. After opening it up I saw that it was a WD Blue drive - am I wrong in claiming that is NOT an AV/DVR rated drive...

    Please note that all Tivo Bolt+ units below sit on a hard surface with open ventilation on all sides. (It might be time to get an external fan.) Temp in the room never goes above 74 and it sits behind a UPS. (Yes, it could still get zapped through the Coax or the Ethernet connection but that...

    I don't know exactly when the change occured (it's likely it was with the last update) but I now have to input my parental controls PIN every time I want to watch a streaming app. It wasn't like this before - the parental controls only applied to content that originated from my Bolt -...

    My TiVo BOLT+ (3TB, cable) has locked up several times. When this happens, the BOLT+ does not respond to commands and rebooting it (via power off/on) shows a black screen (no video output) and sounds of the hard drive running, but nothing else. Most recently, the lockup began while I was...

    Hi, I have read that there is a way to make cable cards compatible with the Roamio OTA, however, is there a workaround to have the Tivo Bolt+ work on OTA? I would like the befit of the 6 tuners, but I have optimum which just rolled out the Altice One and fear that they may do away with cable...

    So I upgraded to the new interface in December. I've got a Bolt+, Mini Vox, and 3 other mini's. The new interface just doesn't operate as smooth for me as it should. It really feels like a late beta product that still needs some tweaking. Here are all the scenarios that I find pretty...

    Can anyone else confirm that the Bolt+ can only support one stream to a mobile device at a time, and that as soon as a second one starts it just crashes the TiVo? (This is what's happening to me, and that's what TiVo support just told me...) I just bought this so that me and my wife could both...

    Just wanted to share my experience unless anyone else runs into this error. Got a new Bolt+ to replace my XL4. Moved the cable card and the Bolt+ started throwing up 161-1 errors (contact your cable company) and would not recognize that there was a cable card inserted. The message popped up...

    I have two Bolt+ units ("why TWO?" explained later) and one Mini. One of the Bolts and the Mini have gigabit ethernet connections. The ethernet-connected Bolt+ is one 8-port switch downstream from the router and the Mini is TWO switches downstream from the router because of multiple devices in...

    I have a Bolt+ with the Netflix UHD package. UHD/4k streaming for select titles works great! My question is about the rest of the content I watch on Netflix @1080P: I'd prefer to let my Sony XBR65X850A do the upscaling of 1080->2160, as Ive read the Sony hardware is pretty good at that. Is...

    My Live TV button on my Bolt+ has been functioning normally, cycling through the six tuners. I just connected it to a new Samsung TV and now the Live TV Button just shows the Title Bar of the show I'm watching and won't cycle anymore. I've tried recording six shows simulataneously, but the...

    Recording from pytivo in todo list never happens. Tivo Bolt+, recently rebooted part of troubleshooting. Latest git pull. MAK, and tivo.com username/pass correct. Previously tested a movie, transferred no issues. Now a simple single move transfer ends up at the top of the todo list but...

    Anyone have anything tips for getting a deal on a Tivo Bolt +. I tweeted at Tivo and they told me to call the 800 number. They had nothing to offer. Really want to upgrade my Romio Plus. I really don't want to pay full price. Thanks! Rob

    I have 3 Tivos (Romio, Premiere & new bolt+). I just switched to Charter Spectrum and am not having problems with the other 2 boxes, but for some reason the Bolt+ will not show my premium channels (NFL network, showtime, HBO, etc.). Charter has come out 3 different times, I switched the cable...

    I connected a new Bolt+, paired the cable card and scheduled a program to record. It shows up in the To Do List but when the time arrives to record, nothing is recorded. In History, I see the proram was deleted at the time it was supposed to record. I can view a program, hit the record button...

    I have RCN, and just got a retail TiVo Bolt+ (instead of continuing to rent the old model I had). The email I got from TiVo after subscribing says: This seems... amazing. Is this really likely to be the case? RCN is about a half-hour trip from my house, so I'd love to avoid doing that twice...

    Hello all, Though mentioned from time to time and asked about as well, I cannot seem to find anything on point with regard to securing a TiVo Mini so that all it can do is "watch" TV--and have ZERO access to settings nor to be able to change accounts, etc. Here's my issue... I love our new...

    :( I apologize for starting a new thread on this. I googled a couple of threads here, but both dated to 2015 and didn't help. My Bolt+ is barely two weeks old and replaces a Series 3HD to which I'd applied the classic select-select-play-select-3-0-select hack with no hassle. The single annoying...
