    TiVo Bolt pricing is a lot higher than the previous Roamio models which makes me think this feature isn't coming to the previous generation. To justify the higher price, the Bolt needs to do more.

    Supposedly the commercial skip feature will not be available on the old products, but the feature that lets you play back video faster without audio issues will.

    I may experiment some with automatic commercial stripping and see how reliable that is. Everything needed to pull non-copy protected programs off a TiVo, strips Ads, and put it back exists.
