    I agree. It's probably about a tenth of a second. Hardly notice it.

    Maybe this was a two market roll out too that they forgot to mention to everyone.

    I'm not getting the hit "D" for the HD channel either... but I noticed my cable provider must have implemented that automatic channel remap that tunes the HD channel when you request an SD channel.

    Hmm... wonder if it makes sense to re-do my shown/hidden TiVo channel list (i.e. invert everything.)

    That was my solution long time ago. Turned off all sd channels that I got in HD.

    I assume this will only be useful for people who watch live TV? Do people still do that? :)

    I did that too. I'm considering hiding all the HD channels and re-showing all the SD channels now since I'll get the HD version no matter what. I don't know how this impacts OnePass though; guess I'll dig up some old threads.

    Would a Comcast Xfinity OnDemand customer check to see if you also are affected?

    The Cox OnDemand bug that was present on the Bolt and Minis running 20.5.4a.RC6 got passed to this update.

    • If the program has been recorded, and is still in "My Shows"
    • The Cox OnDemand LaunchPoint, from "My Shows", will not play the video, it will just reset the UI.
    • Once the recording is deleted, then the Cox OnDemand LaunchPoint will play the VOD program
    • If the recording is recovered from the Recently Deleted folder, the Cox OnDemand LaunchPoint again will not work.
    • Delete it again, and the Cox OnDemand LaunchPoint now works again.
    This will most likely get missed by most users, since they would probably just watch the recording rather than use the Cox OnDemand LaunchPoint.

    I manually removed all the SD long ago (that has a matching HD) so that they wouldn't show up in searches.

    No SkipMode in Chicago yet. Wondering if it needs to be flipped on still or if it needs new recordings to start working.

    Threw some ABC and NBC shows on the ToDo list in the hopes that'll activate it. Nothing yet for me either.

    I welcome this addition, but I think it needs some tweaking for local TV stations and their sub-channels. On some, the sub channels still have the station call letters. On others, it puts the network logo on all sub-channels.

    In Atlanta, WSB (ABC), WAGA (FOX), WATL (MNT), & WUPA (CW) falls in the former and WGCL (CBS), & WGTV (PBS). WXIA (NBC) is a combo with the main channel and 1 sub-channel with the NBC logo and another sub-channel with the call letters. Note that I am using Comcast, so I am not sure if this works differently using OTA.

    It might also be nice on the main network channel to display the local channel logo next to or in place of the network logo.

    It would be nice to get some more information on the reason for the (hopefully short) staged geographic rollout of Skipmode for the Roamio. Considering that the Bolt's Skipmode is nationwide, it's somewhat confusing and even a bit frustrating.

    Margret, any insight that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Mission...
    Very thankful there's an option to turn off channel logos - what a waste of space they are.

    Unfortunately this release introduces a delay in audio coming back after using trick play. With Dolby selected the delay was always present in previous releases, and my workaround was to use PCM audio (I use TV speakers anyway). Now that workaround doesn't work anymore and there's about a second before audio returns after using 30 sec skip or pause or any other trick play that temporarily mutes audio.

    Guess I may have to try using stereo output instead of HDMI to see if the problem is still there.

    I'm in the suburbs of Chicago, does that count? I have Comcast, I am guessing that is who they are working with.
