    We will be releasing an update later today for TiVo Roamio and TiVo Mini.

    Here is a list of some of the changes:
    - fixed an issue where the video would occasionally freeze and the box would become unresponsive
    - fixed an issue where the box wouldn't display anything after Standby
    - fixed an issue related to fast-forward/rewind/recording not working on some channels
    - fixed an issue where YouTube could freeze when using a keyboard remote

    The update should probably be available sometime after 2pm PT.

    While I haven't experienced any of these specific issues, I am definitely happy that Tivo seems to be responsive on issuing bug fixes for the Roamio.

    Thanks! Any chance we can get a software build number to confirm the update?

    Thanks the vast majority of us here really appreciate these updates and the info on what is included with them.

    I think I've observed some of those, one of my Minis periodically is frozen when we wake it up and we've also observed that sometimes FF/REW on the Minis of a program on the host TiVo will cause it to rewind the program back to the very beginning or dump the TiVo out of playback altogether.

    Thanks. Does this update include a fix for the Netflix reboot issues? I just had my first reboot last night.

    Very nice. I had noticed once that the mini would freeze video after a few seconds. A reboot fixed it and haven't seen it since. Glad to see that it should not happen again.

    You mean there's supposed to be something after Standby?? I'm not trying to make fun, I've never seen it. What is it supposed to do?

    I'm so excited. I've had the box freeze several times in the past and the only remedy was to unplug the Tivo from the wall. Hope this fixes everything

    Any ETA on when we might see a fix for the 2nd recording with a weird name showing up when padding the stop time of a show?

    Do updates like this happen automatically or do we have to initiate them or approve them somehow?

    Updates will happen automatically. The process can take up to 48 hours if you let it happen on it's own, but can be accelerated if you're anxious. The Tivo checks for updates during the daily "call" to the Tivo servers. If an update is found, it will download and then wait until around 3AM to reboot your device and install the update.

    In the case where you know there is an update, you can force a connection to the Tivo servers right away. If an update is downloaded, the network connection screen will display "Pending Restart" on one of the information lines, and that would be your cue to restart the device to install the update immediately.

    +1 This is an annoyance, a minor one yes, but still an annoyance.

    The update locked up my Roameo. I turned on the TV this morning and there was a frozen TV image on the screen. The remote was unresponsive, no amber light. Unplugged and restarted and midway through the start-up screen I got an "installing update" message. Then the "few minutes more message" and all back to normal

    Or alternatively, your Roamio experienced a lock-up which, as Margret notes in the first post, is fixed by this update.
