Quick Clear Code Not Working Since .5c FW Update

I have a Premiere Elite and a Mini.

Since I updated to .5c on both of my devices I have not been able to get the Mini to accept the "quick clear" backdoor code (S-P-S-Pause-S) to clear the status bar. The code stills works on my Premiere, and all the other codes I use are still working on the Mini.

I've tried to enter the code multiple times over several days in various contexts (usually while playing a recording). I've tried a hot and a cold reboot to no avail. I can toggle the on-screen clock and the "4X FF" codes on and off and back on, but for some reason nothing I have tried will get the quick clear mode to function although it was working before the FW update.

Can anyone else using .5c verify whether their Mini has this issue?

Yes it still works. Easiest way to enter the backdoor on Mini for me is using kmttg Remote macro while playing back existing recording.

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.)
