Get the Bolt (nonplus), and sub in your own 3TB Toshiba 2.5" drive--relatively easy to do, with a couple of screwdrivers (see YouTube videos on this). And so you can choose between OTA and cable (but not at the same time).I just got the offer, for my 7 year old 2-tuner Premiere XL. I'm considering it, and would value some advise from the Wise Ones that inhabit this forum. I'd probably go for the Bolt + 3TB
Downsides: 1) The Bolts don't do OTA and cable; worse, the Bolt + doesn't do OTA at all. I occasionally tape an OTA show, but only occasionally.
Put it under an inexpensive (and even nice-looking, perforated metal or clear acrylic) monitor stand, if you feel the need--"converts" it into being stackable. See earlier posts here on this, with pics.2) The Bolts are not stackable (dumb design decision IMHO)
Save 1/4+ of that by purchasing the Bolt (nonplus) and subbing in your own separately-purchased 3TB drive (see above). Also, if you have a credit card that gives a price match reimbursement, look for a lower price and applying.3) $600 is still $600
If like TiVo's other similar offers, yes.Finally, what I think is a simple questions: I assume my existing Premiere, once deactivated, can still be used to play back previously recorded shows - correct?
See the post 2 above yours ... ?I missed the last two offers because my box wasn't connected. I connected it a month ago and have been waiting for the offer to return but I didn't get the email this time either. Anyone know if Series 2 boxes are included in the offer?
Just enter the numbers with no space. Don't enter the dash (-), that was my mistake on the first try.Dang it, why do I never get these email offers? I have a Premiere XL4 that's been phoning home to TiVo for years now and should qualify. When I put the TSN in the promo code field it says not valid. Ugh.
After a ridiculously long time on hold, the CSR checked my account and my Premiere was eligible for the offer. So annoying that my TSN didn't work on the website (yes, I entered it without the dashes) but very happy that I'll be getting a Bolt 500 GB! Total with tax was $327.40. Thanks @Dan203 for posting the deal!Dang it, why do I never get these email offers? I have a Premiere XL4 that's been phoning home to TiVo for years now and should qualify.
