    I am on 20.5.2... Weird that I didn't get any message in my TiVo messages intray with a message that I was upgraded...

    My TiVo mini was CRAWLING after the update... Remote key presses were not recognized for about a second or two after pressing the button... I had to reboot and now it seems to be behaving...

    I'm not surprised that it would, but I plan to use that view, starting now. That is the feature I was hoping they'd fix. I like to watch my recordings in chronological order with Groups Off, but that option was removed with the introduction of OnePass. The Recordings view turns groups off, so I plan to use it sometimes, whenever I get backed up in the watching of my recordings. I can wait for the Premiere to catch up with the new software.

    I put my Roamio And two minis on the priority list two days ago and none have updated. I'm Ethernet and each checks in daily and I tried manually updating. No joy.

    Is was hoping the update would fix this. But I have not seen this problem since the update.

    The new software wakes up to TiVo Central, whereas it used to wake up to Live TV. How do I change it back?

    I remember you had a thread about this.
    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=530184

    If you are losing video and audio and also requires you to reboot the box then this update does not fix this.
    According to Margret's notes this update fixes the loss of video but still has audio issue.

    There has to be something in common between the Premieres and Roamios as it relates to the MPEG decoder as this is what fails.
    At first I thought it had something to do with the HDMI output on the unit but when I checked the diagnostics after I retuned the 4 tuners to different channels, I noticed that the unit would not lock onto any channel as it could not decode the MPEG stream.

    This is the first time that the issue occurred while watching a streaming video. Normally I had the issue happen while watching a recording directly off the unit or streaming a recording from my other TiVo to this one. I am not certain if I had this happen while watching live TV.

    This problem is not related to this software update as I have been plagued with this since last summer. I am not certain if it started with the Haxe update or right before it.

    When I got the 1P update in the end of February I had this happen to my living room Premiere about 2 days after the update. TiVo decided to replace the unit. Due to the bad weather at the time I actually did not get the replacement up and running until the middle of March. I kind of disappeared from the forum at that time.
    I brought my bedroom TiVo down stairs to use while I waited and when I got the replacement I put that one up in the bedroom.
    When I got the 20.4.7 update I had the same thing happen with the TiVo I moved downstairs. I also was experiencing noise and vibrations from the hard drive so TiVo decided to replace that unit also.
    Of course it is this replacement that froze up on me the other night.

    If you are experiencing the total loss of video and audio then don't be surprised if the problem happens again.
    The only thing is I am not sure that this is a problem TiVo can fix. I did contact Margret with all the details of what happened and what I discovered so I hope she can have some one at TiVo to look into this.
    If this problem happens to anybody make sure you contact Margret or some one at TiVo so it gets on their radar.

    That's probably a symptom of TiVo's continuing reduction/elimination the DVR/live TV functionality in favor of making TiVo a streaming box.

    Whatever the reason, it has destroyed the usability of my home theater. When someone turns on the TV, it used to come on playing TV. Now it comes on to a menu that they don't know what to do with, and they can't watch TV.

    really? the family members are that tech deficient that they can't figure it out?

    You could resolve this by turning power saving off to appease the family that doesn't know how a Tivo works :)

    Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look for that setting. How much of a power saving difference will this actually make?

    My macro is sending the Tivo key to wake it up. Would it fix my problem if I send the Live TV key instead? I hope so, this is an easy fix.

    Yes, that would work. And the power savings are very very small.

    Yes, that fixed it. Thanks everyone for the excellent help and suggestions.

    The new software is actually an improvement, since we now have a choice of how to wake up. Both keys used to do the same thing.

    Not trying to be snarky here, but why do you even have a TiVo?

    Oh, I couldn't live without TiVo. But some people here just want to watch TV, and anything beyond a single button press is too confusing.

    So what happens when all of the tuners are busy recording something or the tuner they are watching wants to record something?

    Let's just say it is not pretty. ;) Fortunately that is not common.
