Thank you for that suggestion.
I had read many comments about kmttg over the years but had never been interested in trying it since I don't typically control my TiVo's from--or copy recordings on--my PC. But your suggestion prompted me to download it and try it out. At first, I had the same problem I had been having via my Mini's remote: On kmttg EVERY OTHER backdoor code functioned EXCEPT quick clear. I could see that the Mini was receiving the command, but it was not executing. I subsequently rebooted my Mini and forced a network connection, then tried the command again. After several iterations, I FINALLY got the quick clear code to execute.
I'm not sure what caused the problem--whether a quirk in my individual Mini or something inherent in the recent .5c FW update (or both), but I would be curious to know whether anyone else using a Mini with a Premiere host (i.e., no Roamio in the network) has the same issue.
(N.B.: I still can not execute the quick clear command on my Mini via the remote.)
