    I'm either computer-lagged, or Chrome is somehow not showing existing posts which would negate having a reason to post some of the posts I have. WTH...

    Margret's post was directed at the "loud burst-of-static"

    I am not hearing any audio static issues.

    I've read her post for about the fifth time now, and the post she quoted (seems to) describe both static on the screen AND a loud noise (unless I am repeatedly hallucinating something that isn't there, and it's the same hallucination every time I look).

    I don't get the loud noise 100% of the time, nor do I get digital static all the time (sometimes short & loud audio noise with black screen, or no audio noise with static on screen, and so on with variables of these).

    The other hiccup in discussing my issues here is none of my three priority enrolled Roamios will download the update, while the post TiVoMargret quoted is one of the people who got the update already. So, I guess I should shut up about my "pre-existing condition(s)" which she collected my TSNs for and asked me to let her know if the problem(s) continued after the update. I wish I could answer that question, but no updates yet...

    EDIT/ADD: I have intentionally redacted my own posts about pre-existing issues, and the griping about the enhanced overlap handling feature being removed. It frees up some space to make the thread easier to navigate and stay relevant to the update. I didn't completely delete them, as I know that can sometimes do more harm than good.

    I doubt that very much. I can understand why TiVo left it out since too many users don't realize implications of setting everything KUID. Perhaps a default in settings as off would make sense, certainly not a default of on. A default of on would be a drastic change for casual users that have no idea about this update.

    I'm not saying that the software default be KUID -- all I'm asking is that we be given the OPTION of setting KUID as the default. (I meant to previously say that it should be A default setting; not THE default setting). The software default can be anything; just give us the OPTION of setting it to KUID. Oh, and doubt all you want...you'd be wrong. TiVo users aren't as stupid and clueless as you're making them out to be...

    Agreed. Any HD to SD menu transition while the preview window is active results in a brief "glitch screen" of several columns of white dots and a broken horizontal line about 3/4 of the way down the screen. No loud static burst.

    The majority use it for all their season passes? No chance!

    The majority use it for the majority of their season passes? Also no chance!

    I think you meant to say that the majority of people in your house use it.

    We need a poll. I'd be willing to bet that KUID use is in the minority.

    I played around with this some more just now and haven't had the audio static issue occur since it happened twice Thursday after updating. So hopefully there is just a very limited scenario for when it does occur.

    And the poll would only tell about people who A) come here, and B) answer polls.

    I suspect that in the real world, the vast majority of TiVo users, or any kind of tech users, only ever use the default settings.

    Mine was stuck on updating screen when I woke up pulled the plug and 5 minutes it finished even though it said this May take a hour or longer and I didn't even sign up for the early update. It said 20.4.1 now.

    I'm having stream issues, Margaret said it was resolved.. I can't get to the roamio plus from the mini and iPad says out of home. I have done additional connections to service and reboots. Any other suggestions? This doesn't seem widespread?

    Have you tried a restart? I needed to reboot every Roamio after the upgrade. All have been fine since.

    My guess is that since I was upgrading all 7 boxes at the same time, that they may not have all known about the others while rebooting since they were all booting up at different times. After rebooting the 3 Roamio's one by one later in the night after the upgrades all has been fine. They had added some code a while ago to verify in home access and that seems to be somewhat sensitive.

    I'm seeing the out of home thing on my iPad also. Was typing up another thread when you posted this.

    ADDED: I rebooted just now and the iPad app is working again.

    I did reboot each, but perhaps not in the right order. Had all unplugged while eating breakfast and am now starting, connecting, testing again. It how works after the big hammer approach. I'm glad I have not actually been out of the house when the update came.

    After the spring update on my Roamio Plus my tv temporarily loses the HDMI signal when doing 30-sec skip, fast forward or instant replay. I get black screen ("no input detected") for a few seconds after the action until video is re-established. Almost like a change in resolution. Same thing when normal FF is first initiated; it does recover and show the FF action after a few seconds.

    I did have issues with this sporadically happening when bringing up the menu or guide previously, but the issue with fast forward and rewind is only after 20.4.1 and is consistent (happens on every action).

    I just got the update on my Premiere and Roamio Basic. I have mp4 files from Handbrake on both boxes and the Roamio doesn't play them correctly after the update. During playback the screen goes black and the sound goes mute every 20 seconds or so for a few seconds and then comes back. These files worked fine before the update and the Premiere is still playing them fine.

    Anyone else see this on their Roamio?

    the other "conincidental" problem I am having is that the slingbox connected to the component outputs of my mini is not picking up the video signal. I can't see how this is related to the update but noticed when going through all my testing. Was working right before update. I have mini hdmi going to tv and component going to sling. Going to check the mini forum and then try more unplugging things.....

    Recently I switched my Slingbox 350 to use Mini component output (after getting the breakout cables). Prior to that the Mini was HDMI connected, so I removed HDMI connection and replaced with component connection. The Mini refused to output component until I rebooted it, and that was with HDMI still disconnected. Could be if a reboot doesn't fix it that Mini won't output both outputs simultaneously anymore, and that it takes a reboot to switch outputs.

    Any way to opt out of this update for now? I see reports of some getting the update that are not on the priority list. From the posts so far it looks like it solves a lot of problems that I didn't have but creates a host of others that will affect me. For me an opt out or get it last list looks like a better option.
