Well I did put the words junk and nightmare in quotes in my original post because those, among many others, are the words--not my words--angry posters have used to describe either the DVR itself or the experience of the S6 Bolts. YMMV, my friend, but I would not dare to minimize the experience too many posters have had with their Bolts. Hmm. Seemed to have touched a real nerve with you. Perhaps you are among the less than satisfied with the Bolt series owners. We even have posts of many advising those to NOT purchase a Bolt, but find an S5 or posting that it would not be worth upgrading from an S5 to a Bolt--that's a first for TiVo's. Sorry, but that is the Bolt reputation. While the Premiere (S4) got fixed with Haxie, I can't see any fix from TiVo for the Bolt becasue some of the problems are the decision to use a smaller HDD and the poor design of the box itself that turns out NOT to allow the box to be sufficiently cool, but then there are other problems that the average Joe will never solve, such as the fan issue and any other DYI projects that Joe just isn't equipped to fix, and sometimes inexplicable failure of the unit itself and Joe has no other option to have TiVo replace the box--multiple times--losing all their recordings--again--and sometimes for a fee. I shant go on because it would be a much longer post than it already is.
I wisely stayed clear of the Bolts ONLY because of many helpful posts of Bolt users and their experiences. I have TiVo's from S3 to S5, and they all work VERY WELL, but the Bolt is the very first Series I have deliberately avoided buying. My great thanks to all those who posted their Bolt S6 expierences. You have all saved me a lot of money and heartache.
