    Both my Roamio Pro and two Minis just got updates so I'm in the process of rebooting them. Is this just minor bug fixes?

    Should be minor. It fixes the issue with "green" switches. I think Margret said there was a Fios cablecard fix coming too, so maybe that's in there as well.

    "We plan to release an update for Roamio on Wednesday (10/9) that should address these issues with green switches.

    I'm showing version on my Roamio Pro.

    On my Minis I'm showing

    I don't see any reason for me to change back to a green switch right now. Although maybe I'll try it this weekend if I have time.

    Yes, three main fixes in the 10/9 update:
    - a fix for the problem connecting to "green switches"
    - support for older versions of Motorola CableCARDS from Verizon
    - a fix for failed recordings and fast-forward/rewind problems on some channels (like FOX in Seattle)

    I expect another update within two weeks that will include fixes for:
    - boxes that reboot when connected to some models of TV and the TV is OFF
    - TiVo Minis that lose HDMI sync with some models of TV, and have to be rebooted
    - missed recordings and video glitches due to back-to-back recordings
    - improvements in RF remote reception in areas with WiFi interference

    That works for me via VPN. See the Roamio and VPN thread.

    Is there any downside to the Verizon CC fix? Would TiVo still recommend having the latest Verizon CC installed?

    The fix did not break anything for me, as my '017' card still works fine.

    From other posts here it appears even the '002' cards work now, so anything should work now.

    Many network switches these days use "green" technology to reduce power consumption and are considered more eco friendly.

    I didn't have the "- boxes that reboot when connected to some models of TV and the TV is OFF" problem, however my Mini updated yesterday and now my Roamio Pro reboots while the TV is off (over and over).

    Only while the TV is off? By over and over, do you mean it is constently rebooting or that it may reboot a number of times overnight?

    Do you have the ability to connect with Component cables or with an HDMI switch between your TiVo and TV?

    It would help diagnose the issue if we knew this was some kind of HDMI handshake issue or not.


    What kind of TV do you have?
    Do you have a Receiver between the TV and the TiVo?

    I have one Mini that reboots over and over when the TV that it's attached to is turned off. It's frustrating -- you turn on the TV (all set to watch something) and see the "Almost there..." screen.

    Couldn't imagine that scenario with a Roamio! :eek:

    I switched out my non green Dlink(DGS-2208) to a green Dlink(DGS-1008G) before I left for work this morning. I did have issues with this switch before so hopefully now it will be fine. I'll just need to keep a close eye on it over the next few days.
