    My guess is Manage Recordings will disappear soon. It seems to appear for some users right after an upgrade but disappears soon after. I hope I am wrong because I really would love a way to manage season passes and recordings from a Mini.

    You already can by pressing 1 (SPM) or 2 (TDL) from TiVo Central.

    Yes, but most people don't know those shortcuts. I think they will eventually make it public but they keep hiding it from TiVo Central for some reason.

    It looks like recording was changed to remove the back to back on a single tuner recording. Had The Millers and The Crazy Ones recording back to back on CBS with padding and two tuners were used.

    Ah, yes! (For some reason I thought Roamio/Mini had it with 20.3.6, so I didn't mention it.)

    I should have included this line:

    - TiVo Minis can now remotely manage the To Do List and Season Pass Manager of the host TiVo DVR (as long as the DVR is running 20.3.7.1 or later).

    And yes:
    - "What to Watch Now" available from TiVo Central

    (Went too fast responding to the last message. :)

    Yes, this is the "Fall Update". 20.3.7.1 will be available to TiVo Premiere boxes later this month. (http://www.tivo.com/priority to get your Premiere to the front the list.)

    This update does have some additional hidden goodness for Roamio, but I'm not ready to talk about that yet.

    Update looks good. Thanks for the details. Loving the fast updates.


    Seems like one of those things that it would be nice to have a configurable option.

    Interesting.

    When will the UI's look similar on the Minis and the Roamio (instead of the Minis having the old look)?

    Still no word on when remote streaming is going to be activated?

    Pretty sure it's the streaming. Probably just need the switch flipped. Maybe even a configuration option from your device prefs screen on the website to allow outside the home streaming.

    Mini still prompts if your there at 90 mins, and at 95 mins it times out. Seems the 4 hour time out didn't make the release or I am missing something.

    Um, why not just let the user config what he/she wants instead of deciding what's good for everyone?

    Seems like a no brainer to me - many shows (like morning news), movies, and sporting events exceed 90 minutes. It's been an annoyance. Frankly, I'd prefer to see no screensaver and never exit to the TiVo home screen. When I turn on the TV, I expect to see TV. But, yeah, my perspective isn't everyone's or yours. So options would be nice, but probably not worth the dev effort for a small behavior that annoys only a few of us (in one direction or the other).

    It would be great if the Mini could detect the TV being turned off and release the tuner. Given the number of HDMI issues TiVo has been correcting I suspect that is a risky approach and we will need to settle for the current longer timeout. I'm guessing that somewhere on the TiVo roadmap is the configurable timeouts. If one of TiVo's MSO partners starts to scream it could get elevated but I'm guessing its a don't cafe for the majority of 6-tuner T6/Plus/Pro users.

    I actually think it should go the other way. When you sit down at the main box, it should work exactly like the Mini (releasing the tuner, etc.). I have already had issues where it is recording 5 things (mostly suggestions) and I can't get a tuner with the Mini, because the main DVR is "using" the 6th. I then have to go in and pick a recording to cancel, which frees up a tuner so I can watch live TV. In the same line of thinking, just like the main box, when a Mini requests a tuner, a suggestion should automatically be cancelled. In a household with more than a couple of Minis your suggestion just flat out doesn't work, as there are not enough tuners to permanently give them to each Mini.

    I have the update applied and still it times out at 90min. Just an FYI on the Mini hosted by a Roamio Plus....

    It'd be nice if the mini was smart enough to know it was working with a Roamio and use the Roamio's UI theme.
