Definitely NOT true, especially in this day and age of cable companies charging $20+ per rental box.

Picked up the recast 1tb last year and couldn't be happier, even the wife is happy with it. Very easy to setup and navigate, nice ui, and plenty of options/customizations to suit your needs.
I've heard feedback from several other SD'ers with similar comments the UI is a tiny step down from TiVo- but generally happy with the conversion and didn't regret the switch. Thanks for the feedback

I agree that the ads before playing the show recording sucks, but you can press the D or Skip button to skip the ad.

Well, for now at least.
If you weren't aware, you call TiVo and request the preroll ads be removed. Note that you might have to make this request again in the future if the ads somehow come back, say after a software update.

My TiVo's hard drive was failing after three years and the TiVo reported it to tech support. They emailed me about it and exchanged it...FOR FREE.

I wish I needed a new Tivo but my 1GB Bolt is going strong. My wife (who loves channel surfing), would kill me if we switched to OTA.

While as a 20 yr Tivo user, I love the product and interface (2nd to Roku), I'm curious how many more years they'll be around. Their Corp value is in licensing their early DVR patents, and I think hardware and service streams are secondary.

Wish someone Amazon or Google would just buy 'em out, but ain't going to happen. (Just like I want Amazon to buy Sonos).

I've never understood why TIVO has never officially released a model that records both cable and OTA. Yes, you can hack some of the older units to do it.

I did this via their chat support after the ads made my TiVo restart twice. It took 2 minutes via chat.

When my Roamio dies (on I think year 4 or 5 of its current life) I will probably switch to Amazon recast. I have no minis... but with the bigger (1tb) recast price at less than $200 and ability to throw recordings to a $25 fire stick and also cast onto mobile devices free of charge; I can't stay tied to Tivo any longer. Too bad cus they have a great platform, but the money grab of hundreds for the base unit, $150 for a mini, $150 for a lifetime subscription that dies with your TiVo, and another $150(ish) to watch on your iPad? Glad players like amazon are coming in to bust up their business model- all of the above for $200 thru amazon.

If you need a TiVo this is a good price. However before pulling the trigger check out the Amazon recast. Only downfall I have seen is 720p for the recast vs full 1080 with TiVo; which I hope is addressed with an updated version soon.
Agreed, hopefully Amazon is selling enough of them to justify a new version when ATSC 3.0 comes around. Till then I would still prefer current gen of Recast over other solutions on the market. Only reason not to choose Recast is if someone is heavily invested in other streaming platforms like Roku, etc.

The people working at Tivo have a chip on their shoulder. Ive had some lengthy conversations with their support/dev and they think they are doing you a favor by existing. They are now forcing you to watch an ad when you watch a recording despite having a
feature that skips commercials. They say they need the money and their cust base prefers a commercial vs price increase, yet they asked no one, nor care that they have already accepted $ for a service they are changing. All of this after they force added promoted streaming channels on every page of the chan guide. They said well 'we improve your gui all the time for free, we have to make money.' This is their high level thought process.
You can opt out of that there are articles online about what to say 👍

I've had two generations of TiVos that have never had a problem and have a currently running Roamio (with upgraded HD by me) without a lifetime subscription unfortunately. Is it worth it to pick up a Bolt with lifetime for $450 and sell the Roamio? I'm not ditching cable anytime soon, but it would be nice to stop paying the yearly fee at this point. Or is the Edge the future and it's not worth it to get a Bolt. Can anyone please offer me a suggestion?

Never? Confused

Not sure what you're talking about. I currently have two Tivo Premieres that are connected to both cable and OTA antennas. There was no "hack" required, they came with that capability from the factory and they've been running great for years.

I also have an old Tivo HD that I've had since 2006 and it also allows both a cable and OTA antenna connection at the same time.

Can an external hard drive be added to the Bolt?
Yes. Properly format the drive depending on its capacity, house it in an external closure and connect to the Bolt. You can leave the original drive in, just unplug its sata cable and connect the external drive sata cable.

LOL, you funny. I have THREE Series 3 THX lifetime units STILL working that were activate in 2007! Dropped a 3TB drive for $25 from amazon in my roamio for a massive upgrade in space too.

TiVo's OTAs are amazing: live TV pause, recording schedules, streaming services single pane of glass integration. If you're in an area with good TV reception, get the OTA and lifetime service and don't look back. Cable subs are overpriced and good services are available via streaming anyway.
you forgot "COMMERCIAL SKIP" my favorite
