Is it possible to transfer recorded programs from my existing TiVo HD to one of the new Bolts?

Hey sparky65, it is possible to transfer recorded programs from your HD to a new BOLT as long as both TiVo's have active service subscriptions and a network connection. More information about transferring between TiVo's can be found here

As long as the recordings are not copy protected.  Copy protected recordings cannot be transferred.

If I upgrade my HD to a Bolt using the current TiVo "$99 Special Product Lifetime service transfer with any TiVo Bolt purchase" promotion (which ends today).  Fine print says "Your current box will be deactivated 10 days after you connect to the TiVo service.".  Will I be still able to transfer them to the Bolt?

You will have ten days to transfer your recordings, after that you will not have the ability to do so.

Is it possible to use the bulk transfer feature to move recordings from a Tivo HD to a Bolt?

Hey craup@mac.com, there is not a way to transfer content in bulk from a TiVo HD to a BOLT. I apologize for the inconvenience.

When trying to transfer recorded programs from my old Tivo HD to my new Bolt, the website indicates that my old Tivo is not connected to  my network even though it is clearly connected via ethernet cable to the same router as the Bolt.  How do I get past this so I can access the programs on my old unit?

Transfer from/to anything older than an S4 (Premiere) via the website is not supported.

On transfers copy righted material and HD material cannot be transferred. I have transferred a few programs, but it is a slow tedious process, even with connection of both units by ethernet to router.  I am hoping to connect both ubits to same tv and use the bolt for full DVR capability and use the HD as a playback only unit.

To transfer programs from your TiVo HD to the new Bolt, both must be activated and connected to your home network.

 

Go to My Shows on the Bolt.

 

Near the bottom of the shows list below the Netflix and other on line channels will be a list of all the devices your Bolt sees, hopefully one of these is your HD TiVo.

 

Select the HD TiVo, after a few seconds you will see the list of recorded programs, select them one by one and you can transfer recordings to your Bolt.

 

Unfortunately, the HD TiVo has a rather slow ethernet port so transfers are slightly faster than viewing time.

 

Roamio and Bolt receivers have gigabit ethernet and transfer recordings quite quickly between themselves or a computer with a gigabit connection.
