SETUP - DAY 1
Did I mention that I've been attempting to set this thing up for almost three days? First order of business was swapping out the old Tivo with the new. That involved removing the M-Card from the old Tivo and disconnecting the tuning adaptor. With the card installed in the Bolt and the tuning adaptor connected I powered up and let the Tivo do its thing. With updates, etc. that took about a half hour. I then use the tranfer show feature to start transferring my shows and we were off and running. Sort of. The program guide displayed "TO be announced" on all HD channels and a message appeared at the top of the screen that titles and description would be available soon. Well, after 24 hours the Tivo still wasn't displaying the info and the website indicated that it had not been activated yet so I figured I had still had to wait. Which leads me to...
DEACTIVATING THE OLD TIVO and CALLING MY CABLE COMPANY - DAY 2
You have to call in to deactivate a Tivo. No option to deactivate online. SO, I called. I was then told that my device shoudl have activated within a half hour. About an hour or so after deactivating the old Tivo my new Bolt was activated. Go figure.
I then called my cable company. They reset the signal on my end, said things should be up and running soon. No luck.
Well, still no guide. I called the cable company again, they did another reset, then suggested swapping out the tuning adaptor. Luckily, it's a short drive so I swapped it out.
New adaptor works without a hitch, all checks out on the cable company's end. Hours pass, no channel guide info. Then, without warning, message pops up that HDMI connections are not allowed ( ?! ).
Time to go through the Tivo setup again (per Tivo's troubleshooting guide for the Bolt). Another half hour gone. Another call to cable company to reset the tuning adaptor and here we are again waiting for something to happen. Still no program guide info for HD channels. I'm giving it until morning and then if still no guide info then no more Tivo.
Not a happy camper after three days.
Netflix in 4K! Amazon Prime in 4K! Super easy to use. Unfortunately no Dolby Vision on the Bolt but that won't be an issue for at least another year or so for most people.
EASE OF USE
Easy to use if you can get the thing up and running properly.
This is my 4th Tivo and after spending as much time as I have trying to get the thing to work like the old one I'm just not feeling the love right now. If it's not up and running by Tuesday night it's going back and I'll have to settle for a regular cable box.
Oh, and the design is just, I don't know, odd. You can stack it but nothing can be stacked on top of it. Instead of something innovative it's just awkward.
Proceed with caution.
We then purchased the TIVO BOLT and just love ALL its features. Easy, easy, easy! From the very easy setup to the use of the wonderfully WHITE** remote, the interface is great! We have paired the sleek and very intuitive remote and it will do almost* everything we need. We printed the remote guide and it is very easy to follow. HD recordings are fantastic and fill our entire 40" screen. Even the old B&W shows look great!
*On the Tivo remote, it's an easy click on Input button to get to ROKU and then we have to use the ROKU remote. No biggie.
Including our initial outlay for the antenna and Tivo device, the Tivo subscription (saved $30 by paying 1 year) and the continuing charge for 50/50 Internet, we estimated we will save at least $1600 per year by dropping FIOS.
**Our senior eyes LOVE the white!!!!!
