    That's interesting. You would think the better way to do this would have the mini show all tuners and if you selected one in use, it would give a warning. So there's no way for two rooms to watch the same show/tuner?

    I also think it's kind of clunky to have to hit tivo button on the mini so I can resume watching on the roamio. I guess they want to make sure people in different rooms don't affect each other.

    I had two SNLs recorded from some time ago: one in a Kevin Spacey folder, and another not sure where it was. Last night I marked 6 to record out of a current marathon, and this morning there was a Saturday Night Live folder with 8 recordings in it but the folder number indicated 2.

    First time I've ever had a wrong episode count for a folder - is this a bug in 20.4.6 ?

    Okay, this afternoon I watched an episode from the folder. After deleting that episode, the folder showed a correct count of 7 episodes. Now, it's recording another episode, and the folder has fallen back to a count of 3 episodes.

    I use the HDUI, but don't use the preview window. As long as you've just left the recording and not used a streaming service or jumped to a new video source, the Zoom button should take you back to whatever recording or live TV you were last watching. This is the best fix for an accidental TiVo button press.

    It's easier to hit record. When you go to watch the program from another TiVo or Mini then you will continue watching from where where you left off. No need to mess around with what tuner is on what channel.

    And what do you do if you wanted to watch two or three or up to 5 different ones on the Mini? You'd have to hit record on each one. This way doesn't take up drive space btw.

    Plus seen where people had posted they wanted to have more control over what tuner the Mini would be using so posted that. If you don't care about that, it's fine but it was said to help those who wanted more control over what tuner the Mini would be using when they hit "Live TV".

    Drive space? The TiVo will delete the content automatically. Or you can manually delete it you really want to. By recording the content it doesn't matter what tuner is in use. And you don't have to worry about an errant button press. One wrong button press with Live TV and you can go to another channel and lose any buffer you had on the old channel. By recording anything you might watch it avoids all of those issues and makes things many,many times simpler.

    Yes, taking up space like if you are near capacity already and you are talking more than just 2 tuners you want to go between. But to each their own. It's rather silly to even continue down this path. You continue doing it your way and I'll continue mine.
    Plus there is this to avoid the accidental.

    But let everyone decide for themselves on which of the pros vs cons they rather do. This is rather a silly debate since it's giving alternative and also information. If you don't want to do it, nobody is forcing you. Is that fine?

    the screen saver would be nice for my plasma TVs, but having the new power saving feature in HI mode is almost as good or better since the screen blacks out entirely

    Does this update fix the TIVO mini hang issue when using IP control ? at the end of watching a recording if you try to select up/down tivo will hang for 2 minutes ; this happens when using 3rd party ip control

    I think you'll find that this only happens on a certain type of recording: webcasts, or files transferred to the TiVo via pyTivo or TD. Also, it's not limited to the Mini.

    Got an email from Tivo explaining OnePass and that it'll be on my Roamio soon. Sounds like the last of the rollout is upon us.

    Bug or As Intended?

    When Sorting My Shows between Date and Name, The list highlighted show reverts to the top and does not stay on the Show or Show folder you were on.

    I wish they made it easier to put the Tivo on Standby with the remote. Maybe long press the Tivo icon or make it on the first menu in Tivo Central.

    Standby is worthless.

    And you can turn on power saving modes in 20.4.6 if you really want to kill your hard disk faster with a bunch of unnecessary starts/stops of an AV drive that was built to run 24/7.
