    Please don't hold your breath. The RC13 release should be considered the "final". It will be a while before something new happens. There is something close to chaos at corporate TiVo, figuring out what goes where and other issues that arise with a takeover. Perhaps after they get settled some bug fixes will happen. Their only goal (really) for this change was to get those new accessibility features out by 12/31.

    This is sad if true. They broke so many big things with this release. Why is it so hard to fix problems that were working fine prior to this release? Compare the old working code with the new broken code, see what changed and fix it.

    I thought that the RC13 release was intended, in part, to fix what had been broken in the immediately prior release, which had brought out the accessibility features--I don't believe that the accessibility features have changed since that earlier release.

    Except for the Mini timeout, I haven't seen any change since RC7. I also had RC11. But I've never had major issues. It seems to have fixed some connectivity problems with older units. No reports on the Netflix or HDMI problems.

    RC15 was just released, so obviously RC13 was not "final". This makes me wonder if you have some insider information or if you were just guessing.

    Nothing more inside than chatter on the beta site. I'm getting RC15 right now on a Roamio. Sure would be nice to hear from TiVo.

    I now have five identical messages on accessibility from 11/21/16 to 1/12/17.

    And it sure would be nice to be able to obtain, well, release notes when, well, releases are released . . . .

    Same problem here, can't believe a saved setting won't save. Tivo certainly isn't the company it used to be. Hopefully, once these boxes die, there will be better choices out there.

    You mean, around 2030? My lifetimed Series 2 TiVo still is functioning and in use, over 11 years later . . . .

    Comes back every day, or at most every other day, on ALL THREE TiVos. Two Roamios and a Premiere. And they are not rebooting, so that's not the cause.

    This is really irritating. It's one of those little things that become giant aggravations. Between this and the lame guide issues, the only thing I like about TiVo over DirecTV Genie is the TiVo's trick-play is immensely better. I used to cry (ok, figuratively) at the thought of not using a TiVo to watch TV. Now I really don't care any more.

    Oh, and the Mini does it too. :mad:

    I'm getting the same menu resets too (hide left column and sort by name for shows).

    Same thing on all mine, glad its not just me. Hopefully it will get resolved soon but if not at least make up a quick shortcut to turn it off or hell just kill it!

    I have this problem too. In addition to the left column reappearing every night, the audio switches to PCM, even though Dolby is still selected. I wrote to tech support a week ago and they never responded. A sad state of affairs for such a great (and expensive) device.

    I was having the same problem. Here's what worked for me, so far. (Typing with crossed fingers, so please excuse any typos.)

    Instead of just clicking on "Hide left column" I actually unchecked all the individual items. Be sure to scroll down as there are more listed than show on the first screen. You can't uncheck "All" but that doesn't matter.

    It's been 3 days and everything has been good.

    I've always had everything unchecked. That doesn't fix it.
