I do not think you will find any 4TB drives that will work or be reliable in the small format needed for an internal drive in a Bolt - you will need to use a 3.5" drive externally, but connected INTERNALLY (do NOT try to use the eSATA external connection for ANYTHING). You also need to consider which version of the TiVo software you are using - you will have fewer drive choices if it is running the terrible TE4 software.

All of this is well documented in other threads; I just thought I'd give you a few pointers on what to look for. Personally, I'd buy either a WD Purple or Seagate IronWolf drive. You must avoid any SMR technology drive in any size!
I thought it was mentioned in another thread that the latest version TE4 would format drives over 3TB to their full capacity up to 14TB.
