    I agree it would be nice if they fixed it, but if they couldn't get it exactly right for this update it's better to disable it than leave it. And I've never experienced the missed recording problem, only the <1 second glitch.

    Why not just break down and buy one of the many Blu-Ray DVD players that allow Amazon Prime, they are available for ~$100.00

    I'm not against them having put a toggle option in to have kept nooneuknow's head from exploding, but if they had the time and resources to program in that new option, they they better have had the same time and resources to look at the problem. My guess is that they ran short of time/resources and turning it off, while obviously causing some problems for some that can be fixed by editing their Season Passes, fixes problems for others that have no easy work around.

    Nonsense. The problem is not that KUSN is the default, the problem is your Keep Until default cannot be set on the Default Recordings screen. If I want to make KUID the default, what business is that of TiVo? Total UI fail by TiVo.

    KUID is known to cause issues when the drive starts to fill or there are lots of episodes to record. Then Tivo gets calls wondering why some shows are missed but space is available. So, to avoid increasing call volume, it makes sense to limit this function.

    Still nonsense. You haven't reduced the number of calls you're going to get, because KUID is still available on the Create SP page. "Make it available but annoying" isn't good design.

    Seriously? Americans are getting so ****ing lazy that they can't grab another remote or two to do something? It's ridiculous!

    Was the overlapping tuner functionality that is now disabled where you two overlapping recordings on the same channel, and they both record off of one tuner? I saw my TiVo do that a week or two ago, and I was amazed that it could do that, as simple and obvious of a feature as that is. However, it was glitchy as all get out, and the menus were all messed up as to what was actually recording. Hopefully TiVo can make this actually work properly, as it seems like a pretty basic thing to be able to do in order to save tuners.

    Couple of comments:

    There you go again. I know you're trying to be very PC and appreciate it when someone points out you may be slipping up again.

    Also, My Sony Bravia TVs (two of them) have no problem with the Roamio or the other devices I have plugged into them (Logitech Skype HD Cam, Yamaha Receiver).

    My Roamio doesn't have any problems with my TV, but it is inexplicably missing features. For example, my Sony BD player can over HDMI automatically signal my TV to turn on and change inputs when it starts playing. The Roamio doesn't do this. The Roamio also has issues with auto-detecting switches, because it doesn't properly turn off HDMI when entering standby mode.

    Baloney...take responsibility like most of us do now and adjust your settings for any recording or SP. If you have a smaller disk, then you know what to do. The majority of us use KUID, so it should be the default setting...

    Exactly...

    This was the very first thing I also noticed, no big deal, just odd it was let slip through.

    BTW, all my TiVos DVR, (but not Minis) now on 20.4.1 exhibit this behavior so, I think I can rule out the device, TV, HDMI cable, etc.

    I guess my TSNs went into the "black hole" again... Still no updates here. I misunderstood the post you just quoted. I thought it was more than a menu transition, as I now see that's what it was, upon closer re-reading of the post, although I'm surprised TiVoMargret would set a specific email subject for submitting TSNs and TV models over menu transition glitches.

    Try Roamio without View Window enabled... e.g. Mini doesn't have this issue...

    We have a winner, With the Video Window "Off" the glitch is not reproducible.

    It looks like one of my Roamios also went into the black hole also, as I got the update on my 2 other Roamios and my Mini, UGG. I re-entered the TSN but the Priority site said this unit was already set to get the update.
