    My Tivo still hasn't upgraded to the new 20.3.1 software. Does anyone know why this would be? I am new to Tivo and am still learning how things work.

    I hope so. I did get the update and reported bugs I found directly to TiVo so that they can make an informed decision about the rest of the roll out and to fix the bugs.

    That's normal. You get the update when you get it. They do a staggered roll out and your unit just isn't first in line.

    New Problem, Audio started to bleed from DisneyJr while loading HuluPlus I still had audio from Live TV. I had never encountered this before, is this a beta bug or a TiVo echo/hiccup/burb?

    There is at least one problem which may have been fixed by this update - not being able to permanently delete some recordings w/o rebooting the TiVo. Of course, there is no way to verify this. Just because I haven't seen the problem since the update doesn't mean it isn't still there.

    It still exists for me. I always get around it by hitting LiveTv, switching the active (viewing) Tuner, and then I can permanently delete the program.

    Some report that it's because the program recorded from the active channel, and do the same dance. I've had to do it regardless, even with programs transferred between TiVos.

    Then there are always some who have to comment "Why do you even feel the need, or what reason do you have, to do that?". The only common ground I can find with those who say that is "For privacy, as this is a multi-TiVo, multi user home, where we share things, and the last update before this one made it possible to view & undelete from a remote TiVo's Recently Deleted folder, & then transfer."

    I've other reasons, but they'll just call them OCD. :D

    I PRAY so, even though I'm agnostic. Maybe we need to start our own church, since everybody (especially CableCos), but TiVo themselves (as a company), seem to think TiVo users are merely a fringe/cult group, and make us feel powerless. We could worship the TiVo man, whom we already are at the mercy of, and hope he shoots lightning bolts at naysayers, kinda like on the startup video... :D

    Losing all Channels on my Elite, (Black-No Audio) has happened to me twice now since receiving the latest update, 20.3.1

    EDIT: I also experience one other occurrence of a Frozen tuner that resulted in losing all channels after attempting to change channels.

    All SD Menu screens also have a Black background

    TiVo message is "Problem with the signal on this channel. Trying again. (V53).

    I never had this issue before, or rarely ever noticed it.

    I also have had a few spontaneous reboots, that I never used to experience.

    Just as a point of reference, I have 3 TP-4 (750500) all with the new software (20.3.1) and I am not getting any problems, although my Mini did not get the update to 20.3.1.

    My GF and I have been catching up on a bunch of shows yesterday and today that I had transferred to my OTA only Premiere that I brought to her house. So far I've not run into any issues playing back the shows recorded between January and May this year.

    I've got a premier. Every day or two since the update, I've been getting channel signal strengths of 54 on every single channel ... ones that I receive and ones that I don't receive ... (and a lot of pixelization on the channels that I do receive). The only thing that seems to stop it is to restart the Tivo.

    Anyone else having this problem??

    Thanks.

    It's a known issue that the signal strength display is not funtioning properly. You haven't said how it worked before the update and if you are cable or OTA.

    TiVo apparently has a policy to not release a change log. The only thing they announce is new features. This has been a gripe from users essentially for forever.

    Actually, when the 20.2.2 update was released in October of 2012, we got this post from TiVoMargret.

    I came across this the other day. I have a couple of channels that have signal strengths that are low, but ok for a while then they drop too low and I have to adjust the antenna. I'm having issues now and I can't fix them w/o a working signal strength meter.
