    I believe it is fixed in the *next* update. I'm currently expecting that update in mid-December.

    I never had any reboots during the last update. But since getting this one, I have already had 2 reboots during recordings. Definitely a step back from the last release. Hopefully TiVo is still working on fixing random reboots because they still exist in this build.

    Is there a list or post where suggestions can be made for potential changes? For instance, I think Close Caption should be at a fixed location after hitting info, for ease of programming my harmony remote to toggle it. Right now, CC is sometimes 2nd in the list (for recorded shows) or 3rd in the list (for live shows).

    Thanks for the information and also for the excellent product. Upgraded from a series 3 and haven't looked back.

    My Roamio Pro had been having the video freeze lockup for almost 2 weeks before this update. A replacement Roamio is actually already on the way and arriving on Monday. Tech support had no idea why it was freezing. Since the update it hasn't frozen but it does seem to reboot once a night around midnight.

    When I go to bed I watch the musical Jesus Christ Superstar I bought from amazon and is downloaded. The TV is set to auto shut off at 11pm every night and I usually go to bed around 10pm. The next day when I turn the TV on the play list starts all the way at the top so I know its rebooted. Then when I play the Amazon musical its somewhere near the end but at a different spot each time.

    I have also tried playing the musical through during the day and went to work and when I come home it hasn't rebooted so I dunno whats causing it. At least it isn't freezing to the point of me having to unplug it anymore and so far I have been lucky it hasn't happened during a recording but that could change.

    Now what do I do about the replacement they sent if this is a software issue and not a hardware issue? If the same thing will happen with the new one I don't want to have to do all the setup, settings, copying season passes, transferring shows, repairing cable card, etc.

    I have a Roamio Basic and 2 Minis. Like others have reported, the software update caused both of my Minis to freeze on the "blue circle screen," requiring disconnection/reconnection of the power cord. No big deal though. I just assumed it was due to the Mini's losing network connectivity to the Roamio while it was rebooting.

    For what it's worth, I 'forced' the upgrade on my Roamio (initiated a manual call, and then reset it) rather than waiting for it to happen on its own.

    Thanks, I'll submit my idea. It'd be nice to have a list or posting of issues being addressed so we know if a submission duplicates another and so we can see what's on the to do list for TiVo.

    I noted that both my Roamio Pro and my Tivo Mini had been updated to the new release yesterday. I did need to restart the Mini as it had lost its MoCA connection to the Roamio, all is working well once again....

    For the record, I have a Premiere and lately I have been having the same thing happen when I modify a recording. The original recording stays and the modified recording appears as a manual recording. If I have a second recording scheduled, sometimes it gets bumped.
    Please fix this bug in the next Premiere update, as well.

    Unfortunately, this bug still exists in the v20.3.8 update. Since the duplicate doesnÂ’t immediately show up in your To Do list, the best workaround until it's fixed is to "view upcoming episodes" and delete the episode you want to adjust then program that episode to record with the padding adjustment.
