    Got a response from Tivo. They completley ignored the question as to how this happened. They only stated that I will receive the update.
    "At the present time we have scheduled that your TiVo box receive the latest software updates available " Amazing.

    You all need to relax, lol. Other than losing a new screen, what was *lost* here?

    It may be a little embarrassing for TiVo, but since they were still in the priority rollout phase, the general public would be unaware of the rollout.

    I'd say the process worked perfectly, the priority rollout found issues that QA, internal testing and beta testing did not. So they rolled it back.

    We have also discovered flaws in their rollback process. Something else that they can work on fixing. Job security for TiVo's software coders.

    That would be the exact reason to NOT rollback. If it's only Priority signups.....geeks like us.....you think they would just let it ride while they did an official fix. Take it on a case by case basis. Other than the random reboots, I'm not hearing any major show stopping bugs in 20.4.1.

    What makes me wonder about this roll-back is that it comes only a month or so after the botched TivoHD updates which sent the Australian TivoHD code to a number of US TivoHD's, essentially bricking them.

    It certainly doesn't instill much confidence, especially since there was no forewarning from Margret.

    Umm. No they didn't. I am in talks with Tivo right now and they clearly did not intend for this to happen. Apparently your time is worth nothing because I have better things to do then F@#$%ing with my Tivo.

    Assuming your talking to a CSR, I'd recommend waiting to hear from Margret for an update before wasting your time.

    I forced my Roamio to connect to the TiVo servers at 4:01 EDT and did not receive the rollback. I'm kind of glad, since I haven't experienced any problems with the 20.4.1 update yet.

    I haven't got home to check whether my plus has rolled back but I had received the 20.4.1 WITHOUT requesting I be put on the priority list.

    You are "in talks with Tivo"? Talking with a CSR on an issue like this probably does not mean much. They just want to get you off the phone.

    That's encouraging for some of us, but really awful for those affected.

    I forced a connection so I could deal with the rollback while I'm not recording anything, but thankfully am still on 20.4.1 and from what you're saying will remain so.

    Good point. It would be nice to get a statement from Margret ...

    Same here.

    Two TiVo Roamio Pluses here (myself and adult son) and two Minis. We decided to wait for the general roll-out. Both Roamios were updated (son forced a connection, mine was updated when I got home from work).

    I then forced connections on the two Minis -- no update.

    The two Roamios have been performing normally with the update. Can't wait to get home in an hour and see what version my Roamio is running...

    Yes, I'd be very mad, if it weren't for KMTTG.

    It took about 5 minutes to clear ~300 to 500 deleted items (each) on three Roamios, and 99% of that 5 minutes was just letting KMTTG clear them out.

    Ctrl-A to select all, then press permanently delete.

    Don't try to do it on more than one TiVo at a time, as it (in my case) didn't work to try and do them all. Still, only ~5 minutes total, to wait for one to finish, move on to the next, wait, then I did the third TiVo, easy-peasy, and done.

    Perhaps multiple instances of KMTTG running could do multiple, concurrently, but that might have taken longer. ;)

    Margaret is requesting TSNs from people who's boxes rolled back. I don't know if mine did or not since I'm not home right now.

    Edit:

    Checked my router logs and my TiVo boxes didn't download enough data (only a few MB) to have downloaded a software update (yet?).
