Loadstar, this is a question directed at you, but anyone who knows.

I'm going to buy a Tivo Bolt.  I am most likely going to sell one of my Tivo Series 3 HD.  Can I take out the cable card and rehook my TA to the Bolt or would I have to call TWC to pair the CC/TA to the Bolt?

Also I used to have the 1TB DVR Extender external hard drive.  That crapped out.  I want to get a new external HD for the Bolt, are there others out there that would work, whether ESATA or USB?

You'll need to call TWC. You can remove and reinstall everything yourself, but you'll then need to call the CableCard hotline to have them do a re-pair. They'll be able to do it over the phone, but you will need to call the CableCard hotline to do so (the normal call center people will be clueless.)

Alas, I don't know. I don't have any familiarity with extenders.

Thanks!

When I had my two S3 HDs in December I did a self install.   I called normal customer service and got India (as it was late on a Saturday).  They referred me to the Cable Card support line, 866-532-2598.
