Even if there is, which I doubt, it won't have the $99 transfer deal so unless you want to pay $550 just for lifetime service I'd take them up on this deal.So this offer greatly appeals to me but Bolt+ has been out for so long that I'd originally been waiting for just the next generation box so I could have the latest and greatest as soon as it came out. What do you guys think about the release of the next generation of tivo boxes? Will there be one in the next year or so? I could probably live forever with my TiVo XL4 since 4k isn't broadcasting yet and I don't have a 4k TV. I also don't mind fast forwarding through the commercials instead of gaining skip mode. However, about 6 months ago, the wifi jack on my XL4 no longer works, and so I'm connecting to the internet via the wireless adapter. With my box 80% full, how tedious would it be to transfer all my shows via wireless?
Trade one for Bolt+ and another for Bolt 500GB then sell the Bolt 500GB for profit to offset the cost of the Bolt+. If you need two rooms get a Mini.My dilemma is do I trade up one or both of my Premiere XL 2 tuners for the Bolt 500 then buy 2 or 3TB upgrade drives?
You said your Premiere units were 2 tuner. You can't use Minis with 2 tuner Premiere units so I assumed you were using the Premieres in different rooms. Replacing them with a 6 tuner Bolt+ and a Mini gains you two tuners, lets you return a CableCARD and reduces noise and power usage in the second room.Interesting assertion.
I already have 2 Minis ver2 and wouldn't trade Premiere XL for a Mini. Premiere offers more flexibility as long as you don't need to stream, Amazon or Netflix, to a Premiere and ROI is about 51 months to payback cost of Mini at best price of $106 including tax, cable card only costs $1.99 per month with Cox.
On the fence for 2 Bolts to replace two 7 year old Premieres with upgraded 2 TB HDDs. SM is sweet! Without lifetime Premieres are pretty much worthless at $45-$60 on eBay.
Can a white Bolt be painted black? Spouse is asking...
