TiVo is shedding a loadstone in the Bolt. Take a look at their corporate Website. Aren't they focused on streaming? Maybe the whole current platform is nearing its death throes.Must have been why they had the big sale last month.

Suggestions on alternatives? I've got FIOS so there's obviously the Verizon DVR. I tried cord cutting but in the end I really didn't save any money, and things are getting so fragmented that I expect stations to come and go on any given streaming platform. Has anyone successfully made their own DVR with similar functionality to Tivo?The days of Bolt are over.. Even TiVo has no Bolts to replace if yours dies, you get an Edge.
Just another coffin nail for TiVo and no one is crying for the loss of the Bolt. I do believe TiVo is closer to getting out of the DVR business. That will be a loss, but we all know the time is coming....
Works with CableCARD, though not DRM-flagged channels; but it also offers integration with TV Everywhere, bypassing CableCARD for some authorized content.It appears that their current product lineup is OTA only.
I don't follow how that is a replacement, since it seems it is so much different than my TIVO hardware. I have no monthly payments with my Bolt OTA. It sounds like the Channels DVR is software that you pay a monthly fee to use and you have to obtain more hardware for OTA capability. It just seems like a different way of using a DVR. Is there any autoskip of ads with Channels DVR?Channels DVR seems a popular replacement.
