    We will begin updating TiVo Roamio, TiVo Premiere, and TiVo Mini boxes with 20.4.1 "Spring Update" later today.

    Here are some of the changes:
    - addressed issues where customers were seeing V112 errors when trying to stream between boxes
    - improved interaction with HDMI, and fixed cases where TiVo Mini was rebooting due to HDMI issues
    - improvements to Netflix stability
    - improvements to Roamio WiFi connectivity
    - fixed a network flakiness issue for wired Ethernet Roamio boxes that had previously been connected to WiFi
    - turned off the troublesome "overlapping recordings" behavior
    - reduced the cases where a black screen appeared after watching a video
    - YouTube and Opera Store Apps should now work with all video resolutions (not just 720p and greater)
    - created a new V311 error message when an app requires 720p support, and the box has that resolution disabled
    - support for playing cable video on demand on a DVR and a Mini simultaneously (or 2 Minis simultaneously) *if* the cable company's configuration supports it
    - improved handling and messaging of C133 errors, and added a reference to our new site for updates related to outages: http://status.tivo.com
    - VOD and apps can now be launched in C133 mode
    - new "Default Recording Options" screen inside Settings > Recording to set your preferred "Keep at most", New/Reruns settings, and padding for new Season Passes and WishLists.

    The update should be available some time after 4:30pm PT for those that signed up at http://tivo.com/priority yesterday. We will continue to update any new priority sign-ups every few days. If you decide not to sign up for the priority list, your box will automatically update some time within the next 30 days.


    P.S. We have some cool stuff lined up for the "Summer Update". It is a great time to join our Beta program if you want to be part of the (secret) inner circle: https://fieldtrials.tivo.com/signup/default.html

    I'm just glad they are finally fixing the HDMI handshake/Mini reboot issue. It is very annoying. It was happening so often with one of my Minis (almost daily) that I finally broke down and ordered the component breakout cables just to avoid HDMI altogether.

    Great that it's turned off so I can start padding again.
    Bad that you weren't able to fix it to work. Would have been a cool technology.

    Or Amazon Prime. :(

    Like we're on the Island of Misfit Toys and Santa passes us over yet another year....

    Thanks Margret.

    I hope the "cool stuff" includes an UltraViolet enabled application like VuDu. The Roamio feels like old technology without one.

    Amazon Prime would be nice to have, but it's much more important to fix known glitches than to add on new functionality. They've clearly focused on working out all the major bugs in this update, and that was the right thing for them to do.

    It doesn't take a software update for a new app.

    Right, because nothing says state-of-the-art like UltraViolet. :)

    C133 error mitigation is welcome, as well as disabling the overlapping recording/shared buffer thing are good fixes, thank you Margret.

    Nobody is discussing the "Default Recording Options"? This is great, it is rare to see TiVo make an addition to the core DVR experience, nice.

    Just noticed that in the notes. That's a huge help, so we won't have to set it on all SPs individually if we primarily set up a SP in a specific way.

    It'll be nice to see that when it's installed.

    - turned off the troublesome "overlapping recordings" behavior

    Did you turn off the feature or did you fix the problem with the feature?

    You may want to synch up with Melissa at TiVo because this is the response I got back from her today.

    That's my question too. I'd much rather have a minor glitch in the video than use 2 tuners for overlapping recordings on the same channel.
