    TiVo Roamio and TiVo Mini boxes (purchased from tivo.com or a retailer) were authorized for the 20.3.8 software update tonight.

    Here are some of the changes:

    - new transparency options for Closed Captions
    - support for new apps (some of which may start appearing next week)
    - support for "low battery" message for new RF remotes
    - fixed an issue where the grid Guide didn't keep its place after scheduling a recording
    - now will retry tuning requests after a Tuning Adapter fails to respond
    - improved some issues related to transferring shows between Series4 and Series5 DVRs

    Thanks for the info!

    That is probably the "big one"/"most important" one. Have seen lots of complains revolving around this, and it has bitten me too!

    Sigh.... I want Android video streaming.....

    Oh, it just occurred to me, I *do* have that issue. I don't use the Premiere much, and the weak/slow WiFi I have to it makes streaming from it spotty... and every time I have tried to transfer a show from it to my Roamio, it has done absolutely nothing. It queues it up and turns blue and shows it and no video ever comes over.

    I thought it was odd that it didn't work, since it shouldn't matter what your network speed is when transferring from one TiVo to another. Will test this probably tomorrow.

    No mention of a fix for random Netflix or non Netflix reboot issues. Back burner until next update?

    I've had the update for less than 12 hours and I already had the UI lockup that required a restart. Not off to a good start to me.

    Plus, I'm getting the dreaded C133 error this morning as well. I can't say the Roamio has been a very pleasant experience as of late. I miss the days when I could rely on my TiVo.

    Trying to update this morning. First time sat on downloading for a long time. Ended up with unrecoverable error.

    Trying again now.

    Tivo is becoming a bit of a joke. I feel like I do with Apple lately.....the users are the beta testers.

    I hope this makes a significant improvement as I have had the issue pretty bad on both my Elite and Plus.

    Ugghh! the 2 issues that impact me the most are not on Margret's list of changes - Netflix reboot and the extra recording you get when padding the stop time of a SP episode.

    Will there be another release soon that focuses on those 2 issues? Please?

    Yup, both missing, but I will try the padding later today as my boxes only updated early this morning and I am at work now.

    Finally! Series 3 and 4 owners have been requesting this for years -- we always thought it could be done. And I suppose it will never be implemented for those models.

    I wonder if "after a Tuning Adapter fails to respond" is the accurate phrase or if "after the Tivo fails to properly handle the TA interface handshake" would be more accurate? ;)

    Actually, Margret posted the same change log in the Premiere forum and I have 20.3.8 on my TCD746320 already. However, Series 3 owners are unlikely to ever get it.

    Anyone else having issues downloading this this morning?

    I've gotten an unrecoverable error and now two N11 errors trying to download.

    Connection on the Tivo fine. Tests passed, Netflix works. No C133 error as far as I can tell.

    Is this just a Tivo mothership issue?

    I downloaded yesterday around 6:00 PM EST and everything came in fine on my Premiere. It installed overnight. When I checked the Network screen this morning, it displayed an error message for the last connection. I forced connection again and everything was fine. Still seems to be some Tivo server issues lingering.

    Lovely. :mad: Thanks for the info. Always better to suffer with others right?!

    Way to go Tivo.....yet again the best thing you manage to do is fail.

    Anyone think maybe Tivo's servers are running off of this?
