    :eek: :( I guess that isn't really a surprise. The stream has been out almost two years now and I'm still amazed that it doesn't support Android yet.

    I'm hoping the sluggishness when transferring a file gets fixed.
    I gave up on Android streaming from Tivo and bought a slingbox.

    Here's hoping the phantom deleted recordings that don't ever get removed from the Deleted Recordings folder (without intervention) get's fixed.

    I know, that's probably asking for too much from TiVo to actually fix something.

    I found that some programs that were xerred from another TiVo could not be easily deleted from the delete folder, you could manual delete (a pain), but the real question is will the TiVo itself delete the program if more space is needed, if so it should not matter, if not that could be a big problem. Note because MRS works so well we never xfer anymore.

    +1 This is #1 when I say I hope they "fixed the things they broke in the last update".

    Yep, that transfer issue could have gone completely unnoticed if somebody only used MRS. Heck, I still see people denying the problem exists. But, it's clear those saying so are streaming the content, at low bandwidth, rather than the max-bandwidth possible method of transferring. Some seem to be oblivious to the transferring being an option (mostly out of those new to TiVo).

    Either the beta leader failed to have any participants test transfers, or nobody did their homework. The latter often seems to be the case, with a much smaller pool of willing testers (due to many now having one TiVo and Minis, as opposed to multiple TiVos), and how many people sign up for beta programs just to "be the first to have anything new", with no interest in doing what is asked of them.

    Don't ask me about beta programs. I know what I know "because I know it", and that's all I can say. Believe me, or don't. I'm not going to be able to prove what I say about beta programs. Some will know the many possibilities of why that is, others won't.

    I have three base-Roamios, and no Minis, which is exactly how I want it. If one develops issues, the others can pick up the slack. More storage, plus duplicate recordings, should a drive or TiVo fail (or fail to record), has worked well for me.

    I used to use many TiVos for redundancy but the rise in cable card fees from FiOS along with the Mini being released prompted me to change. So now i only have one cable card at $5. At one time I had eight cable cards on FiOS. But back then they were only $3 each.

    Of course if my Roamio Pro takes a dump then I'm kind of screwed. But at least I have a Roamio basic that could be used instead with FiOS. But with only four tuners it would be an issue though. Since I have six concurrent recordings taking place almost every day. But at least it is an option if I need it.

    I almost never transfer between Tivos. Where I've seen it is when a program is streamed to an iOS device. Something in this, even if you don't delete from the iOS device, can do something to cause the program to not be able to be deleted.

    For me, the program won't delete, unless I reboot and then manually delete. This leads me to think that Tivo won't remove it itself, since other programs are removed.

    I don't know if this is true of anyone else, but we see it when downloading a video from Amazon as well. And it isn't just "sluggishness" - the video output to the TV drops frames as well. When the download stops, all goes back to normal.

    Essentially anything that uses more TiVo network bandwidth than a few TiVo Minis pulling HD streams is enough to induce the problem.

    Yes, I've seen it not only make any TiVo involved get sluggish while in any mode of use, but also corrupt playback, Live TV, and cause the programming currently recording to be recorded corrupted, thus it will play back corrupted later.

    I have to make sure that neither TiVo involved in a TiVo-to-TiVo transfer is recording, about to record, or being used. It is very disheartening to see something so big get by the testing phases and roll to the public. That TiVo left us to suffer this issue this long rather than send a quick-fix "letter level revision update" (like 20.4.1a), and made us wait for 20.4.2, is just wrong, IMO.

    You would have been better off buying a slingbox.

    YES !! It seems that the new Pro is not as "snappy" as my Tivo HD during transfers. its should be since we are talking about a significant cpu boost from the Tivo HD to the Pro
