    No it is a serious issue "bug"
    Even if you record a program but are watching it in the buffer at the end of the program it dumps you to Live TV even when nothing else is recording. to finish you must go to My Shows and fast forward to where you left off. annoying.

    And if you are trying to watching two recordings back to back, but in the buffer you can't, the buffer will not transition to the next show on the same tuner.

    I agree. This happened to me for the first time yesterday. I got my XL4 about a month ago. Very annoying...

    I tried various spots but it doesn't seem to matter if I'm at the top or middle or near the bottom: if I delete a program it both scrolls the remaining programs up *and* moves the cursor down resulting in a leapfrog of a program.

    I tried switching my XL4 from SD menus to HD and back again but it didn't change anything.

    It's a minor annoyance and not a serious problem. Early on I deleted a few programs I intended on keeping but I was able to retrieve them and eventually got used to the new quirk.

    It's not a serious issue "bug" if you don't rely on the live buffer for anything important, either watching or recording. You can always watch the in-progress recording instead of the live buffer being recorded and have no issues. Use live TV for live TV and don't watch the buffer behind live for anything you want to keep, in other words. That's the point.

    It breaks one of the basic functionalities (time delayed watching of live shows) of the TiVo box, so I'd call it a serious bug. Some people watch things "live" and now you can't pause shows since if you do the buffer might get dumped. I'd say 99% of what I watch is recordings, but even with that 1%, I've been bit by this.

    Just because you don't use a feature, doesn't lesson the seriousness of a bug with that feature.

    OK, I'm sitting there watching the Patriots beating the Texans with about 4 minutes left in the game, and suddenly the TiVo reboots itself. I don't think the last update actually improved anything :).

    I'm still having the problem where all my older recordings have lost their stored channel information with 20.2.2.1.

    20.2.2 worked fine, but with 20.2.2.1 the recordings are using the current lineup info instead the stored channel information from when they were recorded.

    Is there any way to go back to 20.2.2?

    So I finally decided to re transfer all my old videos over after the new update broke grouping. I've been using a Metadata Generator app from the pytivo forum. In the metadata file that it creates, everything is correct (Show Title/Episode #/Episode Name), but the episode titles are the show titles when they are transferred over to the Premiere. What could be causing this?

    Figured it out. I deleted something in the settings and now it puts the file name in default as the episode title.

    I would really like Tivo to address this, other than asking me to restart.

    I agree this is a serious bug, that ruins the basic functionality.

    Please take the time to open a ticket. It won't get fixed unless enough people voice their displeasure.

    If you count a live TV buffer getting dumped as 'ruining' the experience, sure. Boggles the mind why this would be so - it's called live TV for a reason.

    I agree, it would be nice if instead of Tivo displaying 'all done' it provided an option to delete the group.

    There are other workarounds to using live TV though to get group delete back. As you put it, the show is still playing which for some reason is tripping up the group delete. Selecting the specific show that is still playing and deleting that will allow deleting of the group. Or, and this is simpler, hiding the viewer window (by pressing slow) will allow deleting of the group. I suppose those 2 workarounds only work because they force Tivo to stop playing the recording.

    It has certainly been a month, but I am not sure if it has also been "or so" as well. As of last night I am still on 20.2.2 and am wondering if something is wrong, or if suburban DC/Maryland is even one of the magical zip codes affected?

    On at least two occasions my Elite has done lengthy downloads/processing where I thought it might be updating, but it is still on the same version. Is anyone else not updated yet?

    In my previous 2 posts, I asked about why my transferred shows weren't labeled correctly. I tried to finish off the last 2 series, but they aren't grouping. I checked the Metadata files and everything is labeled correctly, but each episode is created as its own show. Can anyone shed light as to why this is happening?
