    Does this update include even more intrusive pause ads that take up half the screen instead of a quarter?

    Change the padding time on an individual recording (that is a season pass) before it airs and you will get a duplicate recording that appears as if it is a manual recording.

    Can we just skip to the end and make it full-screen?

    My Roamio and my Mini updated.

    The only anomaly was the Mini. It hung on the blue circle of bars which appear just before the animation.

    I waited 30 minutes (knowing it is not exactly snappy) and then pulled the power cord.

    It then booted normally.

    Things seem to be decent. Both units upgraded.

    I'm still waiting for an update to change the Mini UI to match the Roamio.

    I think they said that was coming Q1 next year. Someone from RCN said they were also releasing it for the Premiere units.

    I'm guessing they're talking Q1 2014 calendar year instead of the fiscal year (Q1 2014 fiscal year starts Oct 1).

    My brand new Mini also hung after loading the 20.3.7 update. I let it sit a few hours. When I power cycled it everything seemed fine.

    I've posted to one or more of those threads but when you update a recording scheduled to record to either pad or shorten (I did this because I already pad CBS on Sunday night by an hour), you often get the regular recording with no change and a manual recording that did what you told it to do. I've had better luck when editing the recording from the to do list as opposed to the guide but it has happened to me on either method.

    I put a call into Tivo support 3 or so weeks ago about the issue to give them a heads up.

    Why do you think that? The annual reports come out after the end of the quarter ending January 31, so they can include the holiday period. Q1 2014 fiscal year starts February 1, AFAIK.

    This is really getting off topic. FY 2014 for most larger US businesses began October 1 2013.

    Correct. Tivo's fiscal year end is January 31. Their fiscal Q1 begins Feb. 1.

    Just have to look at the date on their Form 10-K.

    Getting back the topic of Roamio update..
    I've had my Roamio Basic for a couple of weeks...no problems, no freezing, no reboot. Yesterday, I got the new update and applied it. Last night, two programs recording at 10PM and...voila!, the thing reboots at 10:30! LOst about 7 minutes of the recorded programs while it did its thing. And with the new update that was supposed to have fixed that problem (that others had, but not me). Hope this was just a fluke, but thought I'd mention it in case it's happening to others.

    Same here.

    I forced my Roamio Plus to update the evening of the release (Wednesday evening I think). No problems. Decided to wait and see when my two Minis would update.

    Got up this morning (Friday morning) and Mini #1 was updated and running fine. Mini #2 was hung on the blue circle screen. Pulled the power plug, waited 30 seconds, then powered it up. It booted up and is running normally.

    Brand new mini. Hung after the update. Not very good software testing if the error condition is seen on such a large scale.
