    I just tried this again. What I could reproduce easily yesterday, no longer occurs. Though there was a 'connection' this morning. I'm wondering if that had anything to do with the problem going away.

    In any case, thanks for your reply.

    The ability to have differing record attributes for different [Season or One]Passes of the same show was a very significant loss when OnePass was implemented.

    sweet home, al
    glad it's resolved. :up: there have been other random reports of temporary scheduling & 1p mgr errors (before the update), it could have been just a badly timed coincidence.

    I got 20.5.2 today on my Roamio, but not on my Premiere and since then, if I go to My Shows on the Premiere, and try to see what's on the Roamio, I get an Unexpected Problem C501. I called TiVo Support and they confirmed what I suspected, that there have been quite a few people reporting this problem between DVRs with differing versions of the software. They added my Premiere to the Priority list for 20.5.2 and I assume the problem will disappear when the Premiere upgrades. In the meantime, of course, because both of my DVRs are connected to the same TV, I can just go to the Roamio and look at recordings on both the Roamio and Premiere with no problem.

    Yeah, I got that on my mini yesterday. Fortunately, it had gotten the update pending a restart. I restarted and all was well.

    Do you enable the new recordings category on the Roamio? It's possible the Premiere doesn't know what to make of that without the update.

    Thank you! Love this update: being able to sort groups by name/date out of groups again is fantastic! And - not tested yet, but the caption disappearing act being fixed is huge.

    I did enable it. I was using that option on the Roamio the first time I switched to the Premiere and got the bug when I looked back at the Roamio. So I went back to the Roamio and switched to a different view of My Shows, but I did not disable the Recordings view, and I still hit the bug. So just enabling that view may well be the problem.

    I'm not even sure this is a bug worth fixing, since it will be moot once anybody's DVRs are all on the same new software version. I brought this up largely to mention that TiVo Support is aware of it and will add your DVR to the 20.5.2 Priority list if you haven't already done it yourself. After that it should be just a couple of days before the bug won't affect you anymore.

    Anyone experiencing loss of signal on all channels or unexpected reboots after this update?
    Mine updated yesterday on the middle of the day while watching live TV, last night rebooted several times while recording or watching live TV again, and this morning all the channels were giving the low signal error, I did a signal check and all the channels came back, also rebooted my TiVo Mini which still on 2.4.7.

    Unchecking "recordings" on the box with the update fixed it for me.

    I'm having the exact opposite problem. I put both my Premiere and Roamio on the list and only the Premiere updated. Roamio hasn't updated yet.

    Has anyone experienced audio issues with this update?

    The first program I played after the update had periodic half second audio dropouts. I figured it was the program, but yesterday I was watching "live" HBO, a little ahead of the beginning of the buffer and it started doing half second audio drops about once every second or two. It sounded like the audio was stuttering. I did an instant replay and it stopped.

    I haven't got a blank screen since the update. I was starting to worry about my tivo.

    I haven't tried this but I think it should work:
    Setup a wishlist for the show and set it to record "New only"
    Setup a OnePass that records that show on that other channel that allows repeats.

    It was strange. I saw different behavior with the "Still Updating" window. Let me take a step back and explain....

    What I had been seeing, and what I am seeing now, is the following behavior:

    I am on the OnePass page, and I change the priority of a show, moving it on the list of OnePasses. A few seconds after I move the OnePass, I see the word "updating" on the right side of the screen next to all of the OnePasses. Then the "updating" disappears from top to bottom as things are updated. If I were to press the Left button whilst "updating" is on the screen, I'd see a pop-up window saying "Still Updating" and I'd have to press "OK" to dismiss that window and go to the previous menu. All that worked fine.​

    The errant behavior I saw (multiple times) that one afternoon just after the 20.5.2 software was installed was the following:

    I am on the OnePass page, and I change the priority of a show, moving it on the list of OnePasses. A few seconds after I move the OnePass, I see the word "updating" on the right side of the screen and a pop-up window saying "Still Updating" appears. That's right, I did not have to press the "Left" button to trigger that pop-up window, it auto-appeared just as the "updating" appeared in the right side of the screen. It was that pop-up that I could not dismiss by clicking on OK, and that I had to restart the TiVo in order to get functionality back.​


    Weird.

    Yes, I have had three random reboots between my Roamio Pro and XL4, which is very unusual.

    I also had a Tuning Adapter message pop-up, on both TiVos, that I personally have never seen before. I realize others especially w/ Moto TAs have seen this before, but i never have. I reboot my TAs regularly every 3-4 weeks and they had been rebooted within the last 2 weeks.

    I lost all channels and had to reboot the TAs and both TiVos
    It is possible this is completely unrelated, and was just a coincidence.

    The HDUI also appears to be very slow during the "Loading" phase of the network connection, this has happened before in a SW update.

    I just got updated to 20.5.2 on the Roamio and I had only enlisted it on the priority list the night before. Got it this morning.

    Last night while watching the Sopranos using Amazon Prime I had the video and audio stop. I could not get the video to play again. The Amazon menu system worked and I backed out to the TiVo menu system.
    I noticed that I had no video in the video window. I could not play any recordings on the TiVo or stream from my other TiVo. I would just end up with a black screen.

    I went out to live TV and had a black screen with no audio and all 4 tuners. I checked the CableCard diagnostics and I showed all 4 tuners on the conditional access screen. Also the OOB messages was still coming in. I checked the TiVo diagnostics screen and all 4 tuners had very good signal and SNR numbers. The OOB numbers were also normal. The video output for all 4 tuners was only 480i even though they were tuned to all 1080i channels.
    I decided to tune the 4 tuners to different channels and now I had no tuners showing on the conditional access menu. OOB messages were still coming in. On the TiVo diagnostics the 4 tuners were tuned to the proper channels and had good signal numbers but I noticed that there was no channel lock and no video or audio PIDs for the 4 tuners.

    I determined at this moment that it is the MPEG decoder hardware/software that is the issue because the TiVo will not play any MPEG content. The TiVo, Opera, Vudu, and Amazon menus display fine. I can not play any MPEG video from any source.
    I rebooted the unit and the 4:3 picture was squeezed and the picture was tall and skinny. This remained like this until the resolution switched to 720p. Once the unit rebooted all MPEG video played fine. I went back to the episode I was watching on Amazon and it started where it froze up.

    The bad thing is I have been plagued with this issue since last summer and TiVo even replaced both of my Premiere 4s because of this. The TiVo that this happened on was replaced in May. It seems every time I get a software update this issue occurs. I got the update on both of my Premiere 4s the day it was released.

    Or maybe there will be a 20.5.2a release, instead, as TiVo starts to see feedback from the priority list.
