    Thanks, I poked around again and found that screen. I was about to edit my post when I saw your reply.

    According to that screen, mine has not rebooted in a week and that reboot was one I triggered while troubleshooting my "ticking" issue.

    I think it's now under Help. Look for TiVo Diagnostic. Near the end is cable card info, and the Time since OOB Tune Start is in seconds. Also, in the cable card menu, cable card status, there is Uptime in dddd hh:mm.

    It's a "few days", you know, around 72 hours or so, which is more than a day and even more than a couple of days. But I suppose it can be "several" days as well since "few" and "several" are synonyms.

    Don't reboot every day and don't force an update. Reboot once after the first 72 hours or so. Otherwise the Tivo seems to get lost and start whatever it's doing all over again. It's definitely doing something, because the hard drive activity is greater than average during this time period. Maybe putting it into standby would help a little.

    It can happen to any Tivo model (my Bolt does it every time), but it doesn't happen to everyone. It happens more often than not which is why I said "most." I could have also used "majority", since "most" and "majority" are synonyms.

    Next time I'll get my lawyer to construct a post, as long as she uses Oxford commas.

    The problem I am also having is the hdmi not supported issue why uh now greets me every morning and sadly requires a reboot to correct it. Historically I only saw this about once a month or once every six weeks at most. Yet another clear negative change with this build.

    The hdmi issue is the reason I do a reboot every day and sadly have for now many more than several we're quickly approaching many or most days.

    Turns out the issue with mine is the Toshiba 3TB drive in it. Put the factory one back in and no issues at all.

    Also I found a tidbit of info. Toshiba does not replace defective drives any more. They will only provide a cash card for the price of the drive, 4 to 6 weeks after sending it back. Looks like we need to find a different drive that'll work with these Bolts as the warranty procedure is ridiculous.

    Anyone want to test this new feature? Don't do the scan, just see if it lets you try.

    Clear QAM Channel Scan is available on BOLT UESs: This release brings to Bolt / Bolt + the same Clear QAM scan that exists on Roamio. Enables channel scanning with cable card for Clear QAM setups.

    Channel scan should be under channel list.

    FWIW, my Bolt+ has been up for 13.25 days.

    Edited to add
    : Checked some old posts, and I got 20.7.1 on 3/8, so no reboots since.

    Are yo saying your having these issues since you have an upgraded drive or that your drive failed. I've got the seagate 3tb in mine and it's been working well for many months now. Till now of course

    My Bolt has an upgraded HDD, the Toshiba 3TB that everyone suggests there. It was recording and playing back fine for about a month, then all of a sudden it start screwing up recording to where they were unwatchable. I pulled that drive out and put the factory drive and a couple other random drives and they all had no issues. My 3TB Toshiba failed.

    All I can say is try pulling that drive and put a different one in and run with it for a couple days and see if your issues clear up.

    You can purchase a cable and upgrade to a big boy drive, I tried it as an experiment, worked great. Drive goes on the outside of the Bolt

    Well, that sucks, but at least you figured it out.
    Toshiba always had the right to give you a gift card. I actually like it, as I don't have to wait for them to ship me a new one back. I can immediately order a new one and have it quicker.
    Mine slowed down for 24 hours after the update with the OEM hard drive, but not as much as it normally does and now it's back to its speedy self.

    They used to replace drives like most reputable drive manufacturers, this cash card crap is a recent thing, maybe the last couple years. Personally I think it's stupid, especially when it takes 4-6 weeks to get the card, so you're out that money again, waiting. I've always had quick turnarounds with doing drive replacements that WD and Seagate do. Know I know, this will be my last toshiba. I wish WD has a 2TB red 2.5 drive, I would have gone that route in a heartbeat

    Same here, hdmi hasn't worked in ages (over a year, lost it never came back), rebooting, hard rebooting, new cables, 2 different tvs (newer models), a splitter I know for a fact strips hdcp, nothing works. I get menus/audio and that same damn "hdmi not permitted" floating box. This update changed nothing for me. Been using component but want to clean up all the cables. Mac Pro, Apple TV, Android Box, all work fine via hdmi. Roamio Plus, not so much. Worked great before the whole hdmi fiasco. About ready to give up and throw this thing in the ocean. Come on Tivo, wtf.


    Fwiw, while no expert I'm not a newbie/novice in regards to audio/video. When I got my first Premier I had the usual tuning adapter/cable card issues. Turns out I knew more than 98% of the "cable company who shall go un-named".

    I'm still just HATING this build.. have the HDMI issue now several times a day. FF speed at max is still quite reduced. Have lag in the My shows screen, especially when doing a delete, and the remote stutters or stalls sometimes on the my shows screen.

    NONE of these problems prior to latest update. annoyed.

    This latest build solved all of the HDMI issues that I was having. Also I removed the HDCP stripper and have not seen the HDCP error once since this update.

    Same here on two Roamios. The big issue with HDMI with receivers is fixed. I am also not having and issue with rewind or fast forward. I getting to wonder if this is related to Comcast customers because of the MPEG4 and then the conversion of all the HD channels to 720p, which adds further compression.

    Tivo replaced the box with a refurb ($79), so far so good. Fingers crossed...

    The 2xFF issue is just 720p content for me, but it is not related to the Comcast issue, because all my 720p MPEG2 content has the issue, on my RoamioPro and Bolts. None of my 1080i MPEG2 content seems affected, and all of Cox's MPEG4/H.264 channels are 1080i.

    I'll need to check mine to see if it's the same way. I had used skip mode with the 720P programs I watched.
