    I still have RC14, but my channel logos became left-justified at least two to three days ago . A few here and there are still centered.

    RC21 is causing audio dropout issues for me. The main channel dropout lasts for a long time (20-30 minutes sometimes). My priority list upgrade in December did not have this problem.

    I haven't seen any audio dropouts under RC21 or the previous release, but I'm still seeing the issue where programs that have 5.1 Dolby Digital audio are being output as PCM stereo when I turn on my TV, despite the Dolby option being selected in the audio settings.

    Doing an instant replay fixes this. I think it's related to the new Quick Mode feature which always outputs PCM when enabled. I think the software is getting confused and thinks Quick Mode is on when it isn't.

    With two base Roamios, one on RC14, one on RC21, all logos and channel/network call letters are left justified.

    I am pretty sure TiVo is nearly always testing their next software release. As too if any release brings "good" updates or not I guess that depends on each individuals view for what ever update it brings. Recently I consider it a win if TiVo software releases fix more bugs than they cause.

    Almost all are left justified. When I look through the list, it looks like they missed a few like FX and FYI. They are still centered.

    One wonders why the code was written such that each logo is individually tagged with a "center" attribute.

    When I was a beta tester for TIVO, we were told to NEVER say anything about what we were testing, certainly not in an open forum. And NOT using an identifiable handle. It would get you kicked out of the program.

    Is that really a Tivo issue?

    This sounds like the general issue that I originally thought was inherent to only NTSC, but still see from digital content -- some areas of the screen can affect brightness of other areas of the screen.. and no, I don't mean backlighting, or energy saving settings..

    I'm wondering why they left justified them at all. I do NOT like it this way at all. Some of these logos are really small and when they are all left justified, the listing looks like cr@p.

    I'd much rather have them back to centered.

    This is pretty vague and somewhat inaccurate. One of the fixes is the ability to play live streams. I do not believe this falls in the playback performance category. :cool:

    If I understand correctly, you’re suggesting that gray letterbox bars might affect the brightness of other parts of the screen differently from black letterbox bars. However, I’m not sure that explains my observations of the washed out picture problem, namely:

    1. I had used my Roamio from 02/2014 to early 12/2015 without ever seeing this issue.
    2. I first noticed a washed out picture in On Demand on 12/10/2015, plus or minus a day. The only change I’m aware of to my TV/TiVo setup since the last time On Demand had worked fine was the installation of the TiVo Fall 2015 update (20.5.6) on 12/09/2015.
    3. The washed out picture appears for all content (HD and SD, letterboxed or not) in On Demand and only On Demand. Live TV and TiVo recordings are not affected.
    4. Other users on this forum have reported this problem and (according to the TiVo rep I spoke to last week) forty or so TiVo support cases have been opened for this issue in the last few weeks.
    5. The workaround for the problem is to change a TiVo setting (set “Letterbox Color” to black instead of gray). This alleviates the problem for all On Demand content, even content that’s not letterboxed.

    If I’ve misunderstood what you meant, please let me know.

    I wonder what :rolleyes:AMAZING:rolleyes: things the person who posted that is referring to??? I repeat...:rolleyes::rolleyes::confused::confused::D

    THRILLING is a word that TiVo knows nothing about (oh, maybe I will give them OnePass and QuickMode...:D , plus taking several years to take a stab at fixing the audio delay in and out of Tivo Central). 2016 Spring, Summer or Fall/Winter update??? LOLOL

    Is RC21 supposed to be out to everyone now? I'm stuck on RC14 and I can't figure out how to get RC21 to download.

    Usually TiVo roles updates out to everyone, but they have had so many issues with the last major update I am uncertain where they are at. I know my Premiere is still on RC14 also. In any event unless you are having some issue that you expect RC21 to fix I wouldn't worry about it. The next major release is likely to be here in the next month or 2 anyway.

    Only TiVo boxes on the priority list managed to get RC21. I have it on a Roamio and Premiere. But a Roamio and Premiere not on the list do not have it.
