    I know it's my own fault for signing up for the beta (which I won't do again), but is there any way to get this version rolled back?

    It is causing crashes during prime viewing hours (maybe BECAUSE we are watching at the same time?) that weren't happening before.

    I had the same thought. My Roamio pro is rebooting 2-3 times a day since I got priority update

    I was rolled back automatically last night. After my Tivo connected to the service, I had a pending restart. Confirmed in system information that I was back to the prior version. But after I rebooted, every show I had ever deleted all the back to September was back in My Shows and my Roamio Pro was 95% full! After re-deleting those shows, back to normal at 43%. Has anyone else seen this behavior?

    Mine also automatically rolled back last night. I also lost all my channel list settings, every single channel offered on my guide list is selected.

    Exact same problem here. On the phone with Tivo now.

    I guess this is a prime example of "Be careful what you ask for."

    Damn.

    Hmm. My Roamio shows having connected at 2:48 a.m. this morning (Friday) but didn't roll back, thank god. Wonder if I should take it off line until this nonsense has passed...?

    Just remember how unhappy a Roamio gets when it can't see the mothership...You will lose a bunch of functionality.

    Just remember that this is NOT the beta program. It was just the priority list. Seems like this time around they did not have enough actual beta testers.

    As one who has had only small problems since the update, I am dreading the rollback more than anything now.

    Yes, I'd be very mad, if it weren't for KMTTG.

    It took about 5 minutes to clear ~300 to 500 deleted items (each) on three Roamios, and 99% of that 5 minutes was just letting KMTTG clear them out.

    Ctrl-A to select all, then press permanently delete.

    Don't try to do it on more than one TiVo at a time, as it (in my case) didn't work to try and do them all. Still, only ~5 minutes total, to wait for one to finish, move on to the next, wait, then I did the third TiVo, easy-peasy, and done.

    Perhaps multiple instances of KMTTG running could do multiple, concurrently, but that might have taken longer. ;)

    I'll take my chances. I have several days of guide data and lots of recordings stacked to watch. I can easily ride this out for awhile.
