    And/or this supports Ben Drawbaugh's desire for HDMI-CEC. Guess that'd be the Mini 2.

    They are supposed to update the Mini UI to look like the Roamio UI. No idea when that will happen though.

    Except they already felt it was important enough to spend dev effort - they just didn't really improve anything, just picked a side.

    If this is what I'm thinking, here's an example. Have a SP for a show that is on twice in a row on a channel, for example Modern Family in syndication these days. Pad the SP to record a minute over, since the final scene often gets cut off. What I would see was that on the second recording there would be a video/audio glitch at the one minute mark when the first recording would have been ending. So it was using two tuners due to the padding, and something was causing a glitch. It sounds like the glitching is fixed.

    Got the update and my signal strength went back to peaked at 100%. Spent hours yesterday with Tivo CSR and Comcast Cable Card folks trying to figure our why 3 tuners died (not authorized message). Tivo says signal too hot. Brought the signal down with splitters to 87-95 on all 6 tuners and within 10 minutes all tuners were working again. Apparently signal strength is a problem. Now back to where I was yesterday. Why would a software update peak the tuners again? More splitters and then attenuators.

    If you looked at the tuners prior to the update, Tivo was NOT using a second tuner for the second recording. What is sounds like they were trying to do (and it wasn't working well) was use one tuner and then have the software split the file. This was causing the glitches and the missed recordings.

    You can test now.....just set 2 back to back recordings on a single channel with the first overlapping the second. If you watch at the point when the next show starts....if the Tivo uses 2 tuners now, then they changed the behavior.

    I've seen some weird things with the Tivo reporting signal levels. I'm guessing they are back because of the reboot and the way the tuners read the signal. I have no idea though. I have my experiences in this thread:

    I saw the other day where I had a few channels show a lower signal level....by just unplugging and plugging in the cable in the basement, magically the signal levels for those channels went back up.

    I also don't understand why some people have issues with tuners and 100% signal levels and others don't.

    Switching 90 to 240 is not effort.

    Adding a new menu and a configurable value is.

    Thanks again Margret for keeping us in the know on what the updates contain. Hope you guys (in conjunction with other companies) have some "app goodness" for us before year's end given the under-the-hood horsepower of the new platform.

    Sorry, there is a Service change we forgot to make. It is in process. I will let you know when it is working.

    Perhaps TiVo could exclude you from this update.

    OK, circumstantial but it looks like my Roamio Plus is no longer downloading a couple of video podcasts that I had as wish lists.

    One is The Vergecast and I recovered the one from last week that I had deleted after watching. When I go into it in My Shows, it say I can no longer make this a wish list item.

    So the new firmware doesn't support "subscribing" to get these downloaded automatically?

    I tried searching (which is how I originally found that they were available through Tivo) and they don't even show up in the search results.

    While I doubt it, I'm hoping it's the framework for an Android Stream update.... :)

    Thank you for the detailed log. I appreciate it!

    As I described in an earlier post Tivo appears to have changed the behavior so now two tuners are used on back to back records on the same channel.

    Since it can be set in the back end ideally at some point there should be a setting as part of our account where we can change this through web site to our liking.
