    I'm trying to do the math here, and find it hard to believe "fewer than 200" were affected, given how many reports came in on a forum that the vast majority of TiVo owners don't even know exists (or so I've been told from time to time, how that is the case, by others on here).

    The "strange math" and "percentage anomalies" aside, Thank You for your presence, support, and your updates here.

    It does not go without appreciation. :)

    No issues here @ 20.3. Glad this mess missed me.

    Maybe those rolled back were folks that signed up for the early release via the priority list?

    Yep- that was my assumption.

    I was on the priority list and none of mine rolled back.

    I'd assume that as well just because I don't think the new software was being rolled out in general release yet.

    Maybe those 200 were so of the first ones to sign up for priority?

    Same here.

    I subsequently disconnected my Ethernet cable to be safe, but it'd connected Friday morning and not rolled back, and I was on the priority list. So it's not that.

    I'd appreciate a little more detail from TiVo/Margret regarding this "200 boxes" notion, how sure they are, etc. Said another way, I don't want to plug my Ethernet cable back in only to then be rolled back because "oops."

    Releases are assigned at the box level. I have no doubt they can query who all was effected. Reading between the lines though, an operational issue sounds like a nice way of saying the problem existed between the keyboard and chair assigning the update. For their sake, hopefully its not the same person that goofed up some TiVoHDs recently ;)

    Mine is also back; now 20.4.1-USA-6-840

    No repeat of program loss/moving/resurrection and my channel settings were not changed (and are still not back to the way I want because after an hour of going through it last night, I lost patience; will finish today).

    My Roamio is also back to 20.4.1. Happily, I didn't experience the same loss of settings that happened with the rollback.

    Seems like a reasonable explanation.

    Well, I seem to have been hit by a rollback... and it also farked with my channel list, resetting all the channels I had marked as unavailable as available again, which is probably more annoying (getting the channel list correct is a majorly time consuming task).

    This is why I have a document that keeps a list of every channel I receive. It makes it much easier when setting up a new TiVo.

    Yeah, I thought I had that, but it seems to have hit the bit bucket when I upgraded my computer. :/

    sweet home, al
    what else were you expecting? what other info will help restore your equipment? the rollback was identified and a correction issued within 2 days. while i'm glad it didn't happen to my equipment, and sorry others had the headache, it was addressed quickly.

    of course, if this had happened a few centuries earlier, off with their heads! :p
