Roamio and Mini update today (10/09/2013)

Both my Roamio Pro and two Minis just got updates so I'm in the process of rebooting them. Is this just minor bug fixes?

Should be minor. It fixes the issue with "green" switches. I think Margret said there was a Fios cablecard fix coming too, so maybe that's in there as well.

"We plan to release an update for Roamio on Wednesday (10/9) that should address these issues with green switches.

I'm showing version 20.3.6.3-USA-6-840 on my Roamio Pro.

On my Minis I'm showing 20.3.6.3-01-6-A92

I don't see any reason for me to change back to a green switch right now. Although maybe I'll try it this weekend if I have time.

Yes, three main fixes in the 10/9 update:
- a fix for the problem connecting to "green switches"
- support for older versions of Motorola CableCARDS from Verizon
- a fix for failed recordings and fast-forward/rewind problems on some channels (like FOX in Seattle)

I expect another update within two weeks that will include fixes for:
- boxes that reboot when connected to some models of TV and the TV is OFF
- TiVo Minis that lose HDMI sync with some models of TV, and have to be rebooted
- missed recordings and video glitches due to back-to-back recordings
- improvements in RF remote reception in areas with WiFi interference

That works for me via VPN. See the Roamio and VPN thread.

Margret,

Is there any downside to the Verizon CC fix? Would TiVo still recommend having the latest Verizon CC installed?

Thanks.

The fix did not break anything for me, as my '017' card still works fine.

From other posts here it appears even the '002' cards work now, so anything should work now.

Many network switches these days use "green" technology to reduce power consumption and are considered more eco friendly.

Ughh...

I didn't have the "- boxes that reboot when connected to some models of TV and the TV is OFF" problem, however my Mini updated yesterday and now my Roamio Pro reboots while the TV is off (over and over).

Only while the TV is off? By over and over, do you mean it is constently rebooting or that it may reboot a number of times overnight?

Do you have the ability to connect with Component cables or with an HDMI switch between your TiVo and TV?

It would help diagnose the issue if we knew this was some kind of HDMI handshake issue or not.

Also...

What kind of TV do you have?
Do you have a Receiver between the TV and the TiVo?

I have one Mini that reboots over and over when the TV that it's attached to is turned off. It's frustrating -- you turn on the TV (all set to watch something) and see the "Almost there..." screen.

Couldn't imagine that scenario with a Roamio!

I switched out my non green Dlink(DGS-2208) to a green Dlink(DGS-1008G) before I left for work this morning. I did have issues with this switch before so hopefully now it will be fine. I'll just need to keep a close eye on it over the next few days.

Will that fix address the Mini DTA with the Premier's also?

TivoMargret's post is Roamio specific.

In other posts, she has indicated the Fall update for the Premiere is likely a month out and the priority page might be up in a week or so. There have been references to DTA for the Premiere/Mini setup, but no specific promises it's coming with the Fall update.

Anything on an update to the Tivo app which has the the percentage full indicator on the app significantly higher than the box itself. Right now, the box at home shows 81% on my Roamio Plus upgraded with a 3TB drive but the app shows 100%. Kind of annoying as I do most of my UI management in the app.

I'd like a fix for the Netflix reboot issue. I'm afraid to watch Netflix on my Roamio because I don't want my recordings to be interrupted so I've been watching it using the horrible Premiere app. It has flaws too and is extremely annoying, but it doesn't reboot and interfere with recordings.

Have they said what causes the reboot? I've never had Netflix cause a reboot on my Roamio.

If the reboot is caused from a network drop, I did not have any issues last night watching Netflix with my Roamio connected to a green switch.

If you haven't I would email her directly, Margret @TiVo.com.

I would include your TSN, Software number, and a description of the issue. I would also include your make, model and year of your TV along with connections you have tried.
