    I tested a beta within the last 6 months. About 2 months after it ended I received a thank you gift - in this case a blue Tivo branded Leatherman Micra multi-tool.

    I didn't receive anything...but I also wasn't rolled back. In many ways, I wish I was rolledback, and that it would have STAYED that way. Way too many reboots (both the Roamio, and the Minis) ever since this update...

    That being said, I'd love to have a Slide remote...Even considered ordering one...but that shipping fee seems to be a price gouge.

    I got the email too.

    This works out great since I have the original slide remote and it's been having issues lately. It periodically won't respond to my button presses.

    Open it and push the connector back together. Search youtube for a video how.


    Question- did the rollback issue only happen with Roamios? and is this offer only for Roamio users?

    I assume the rollback happened on my Elite too because the Channels I Receive got reset on both my Plus and my Elite.

    I didn't get a remote, just a screwed up roamio from the update and a bill for a new one.

    Same here--my remote showed up on my doorstep this afternoon but the status on tivo.com still states "processing."

    I just got a shipping notice email. But it shows that it was actually shipped yesterday. Sounds good to me.

    Just received the shipping notice. Apparently one of the Premieres I have sprinkled throughout the state was rolled back. :confused::)

    I have had more than one fail (original Slide) with the intermittent issues that was not the connector.

    Received a shipping notice today and tracking shows delivery scheduled for Thursday. Not complaining, but I'm Still not sure why we are getting these. Everything here has been speculation.

    Normally when you get a gift the person/Co tells you why IE: because of your xxxx problem we are sending you a free yyyy. I wonder if we will get a 1099 at the end of the year ??:D
