I got the email too. Not on the Advisory panel. Was on the Priority List. I assume I got rolled back too since I had to reset all the "Channels I receive" on both my Elite and Plus. Thanks, TiVo!

Wonder if the RF dongle will come with this?

EDIT: I'm guessing it doesn't. When I ordered one with the dongle, it was "C00261 TiVo Slide Pro Remote w/Adapter". This one says "C00260 TiVo Slide Pro Remote". I wonder if I can order just the dongle?

Anyone that may not want their remote I'd be more then happy to take it off your hands. As a brand new Tivo customer (I just ordered the boxes yesterday) I'm not sure if I will need one or not, but if one was donated to me I'm sure I'd use it!

I also got the free remote, I am on the Advisory panel but never had any roll back, but I did have to re-set all my ch on one of my three Roamios about a week after the update, the software was still 24.1 on that Roamio.

I have a $75 off promo code that expires tomorrow. Anyone want to trade the code for a slide remote? I'll pay actual shipping on the remote.

"I am so sorry that some of you experienced receiving an email about a TiVo Slide Pro remote being shipped! There was an operational issue that caused some TiVo owners (fewer than 200) to receive this incorrect email."

JK.

Looks like a cool token of appreciation on TiVo's part for the folks that went through the hassle of the original update and the subsequent rollback.

Except I checked in my TiVo account and the order is on their system.

You are going to piss off a lot of people if they don't catch the JK in your post.... lol

Ha! Maybe it's just my cynicism, but this very thought crossed my mind when I first saw the order confirmation email.

Who knows. Already have a TiVo Slide Pro, but I suppose a spare can't hurt anything.
I will certainly think twice about participating in any betas if they are going to promise and not give anything. I do a lot of things for free, but if someone promises and doesn't come through, then I am through. (is that correct English?)

I didn't get any emails, Slide Remotes, upgrade discounts or anything else, other than indigestion after reading all of this.

Sometimes it takes a while for the gift to arrive. Then out of the blue it shows up.

I tested a beta within the last 6 months. About 2 months after it ended I received a thank you gift - in this case a blue Tivo branded Leatherman Micra multi-tool.

I didn't receive anything...but I also wasn't rolled back. In many ways, I wish I was rolledback, and that it would have STAYED that way. Way too many reboots (both the Roamio, and the Minis) ever since this update...

That being said, I'd love to have a Slide remote...Even considered ordering one...but that shipping fee seems to be a price gouge.

I got the email too.

This works out great since I have the original slide remote and it's been having issues lately. It periodically won't respond to my button presses.

Open it and push the connector back together. Search youtube for a video how.


Question- did the rollback issue only happen with Roamios? and is this offer only for Roamio users?

I just got a shipping notice email. But it shows that it was actually shipped yesterday. Sounds good to me.

Just received the shipping notice. Apparently one of the Premieres I have sprinkled throughout the state was rolled back.

Received a shipping notice today and tracking shows delivery scheduled for Thursday. Not complaining, but I'm Still not sure why we are getting these. Everything here has been speculation.

Normally when you get a gift the person/Co tells you why IE: because of your xxxx problem we are sending you a free yyyy. I wonder if we will get a 1099 at the end of the year ??
