    When you say "should be" do you mean that Verizon offers such a credit? Or do you mean that they should offer such a credit? I certainly am receiving no such credit.

    You are only entitled to a credit if the service package you subscribe to includes the cost of equipment in the package price. For example, Comcast gives you the first cable box for free (i.e. the price is included in the package price), so you are entitled to a credit if you use your own equipment instead of their cable box. Conversely, Time Warner Cable makes you pay a separate line item charge even for the first cable box, so you aren't entitled to an equipment credit, you just don't have to pay the separate box fee.

    The way FiOS does their charges and bundles, they aren't required to give a $2.50 credit. WHich is fine by me. If I switched to Comcast my bill would definitely go up.

    Just downloaded something big. Pending restart, but can't restart yet because recording. Looks like 20.4.2.

    Yep. 20.4.2. Decided to move recording to another Roamio and do the restart.

    Love the 3 column view! Can now see other Roamio's more easily, and separate series recordings from movies, love it.

    I rarely, if ever at all, have said this: My initial assessment of this update is :up: :up: :up:

    No one has mentioned anything about new streaming features. Is this just bug fixes and minor improvements to the UI?

    Thanks

    Just had slight issue but reboot corrected it. Have had this problem before when updating 3 Roamio's and 4 Mini's all at the same time. MRV gets out of sync, and it wouldn't let me transfer a recording from one Roamio to another. I rebooted and now all is fine. The transfer just completed in 3 min 26 sec at 170.13 Mb/s over Ethernet.

    My Roamio is downloading the update now, but count me in the still disappointed category. Margaret told us to expect something big in the Summer update and so far nothing big has been offered. Yes. The consistent look thing is nice but I have no need for it since I only have a Roamio Pro. The mini in my signature is at my mom's house so I just she'll be happy (if she even notices the difference on her 32" SD tv).

    I'm sure, I'll like the "Previously watched list". Then rest is useless fluff to me though. PROFILES / ANDROID STREAMING / AMAZON PRIME. Anyone of those items would have made this a "big" update.

    This is a UI rework (of awesome proportions) and bug fix update.

    If you are looking for android streaming support, or any major changes to other streaming functions, this is not the update for that. That has been pushed to fall, and if history repeats, it may likely get pushed to after the sun runs out of hydrogen.

    A bunch of programs vanished from Roamio's My Shows about a week or two ago, despite still being on the box and playable from search. They are now back after it upgraded to 20.4.2.

    Ok, is it just me or is changing between screens snappier even on Roamios? Even pulling up the SD settings screens seems snappier. This could be the placebo effect, but I dont think so.

    The only thing that seems slower is when you hit "tivo" to go into the menus the small pip window is slower to draw, but that might be intentional because theres a "press zoom" instruction that pops up in there before the video appears. (was this there before?)

    Outside of flash version's date updating by about a month, the HD menus are now missing a version number, the collab slice, Stream, Netflix, Hulu version numbers remain the same.

    Scratch this it's all useless. I turned off the 3rd column. I don't need it and worse of all it makes the My Shows screen look awfully cluttered. What a waste of resources.

    Update 20.4.2 did not bring back the overlapping recordings feature using only one tuner. :(

    Yeah, I'm not sure I'll be keeping the 3 column view. 90% of the time my Tivos are filled with TV Shows, and I don't really need the organization. And yes, I'd have to agree that things look cluttered and squished together.

    Overall I'm finding that doing anything with a guide or menu to be much improved in speed. All the SD menus are now....kinda HD (they are clearer) with this weird sliding effect. Odd choice to not just put them all in the HD menu system.

    This is odd. I rec'd the update overnight, and was not on the priority list. And I can't get any signals. Every channel says "Not Authorized V53". It's rebooting now...

    Whoops, make that V58. And two reboots have done nothing to help.

    So am I the only one who has a brick?

    I will say being able to click on Info on a program in the guide and getting direct access to VOD or Netflix is awesome. Much faster than before.

    Got the update yesterday. Stuck on Welcome Starting up screen overnight. Hope this is not a sign of future Tivo updates.
