    I am having problems with intermittent audio dropouts and black screens for a few seconds during recordings. That is in addition to the problems with Hulu Plus which I know aren't dependent on Tivo OS. Is there any way to get on the priority list?

    Not at this time. Perhaps an email to Margret would work?

    You say "had" some black screen issues. Are they gone now that you are on rc21?

    I emailed Margret the other day to get RC21 for my Roamio Pro. Ever since the winter update I have been experiencing channel tuning issues on RC14. No picture at all. On other channels I had severe pixelation. My older Premiere on RC14 has no trouble tuning the same channels. My Roamio updated to RC21 after Margret emailed me back. It helped a little. Channels that wouldn't tune at all now just have severe pixelation but still unwatchable. The other channels still have the same level of pixelation so no observable improvement. I emailed her back with the results. I am not sure what to do at this point.

    I did not have any on RC14, if I remember correctly. But I have noticed " a few" of the small "blackouts" on RC21. I really thought it was Comcast at first. Now I do not know. They are VERY infrequent though.

    I have RC21 and am occasionally noticing that my Roamio OTA takes 2 or 3 seconds to tune to a channel whereas it typically does so in under 1 second. Once tuned, though, the channel displays normally. Also noticed the Amazon Video app last night several times taking a few seconds to respond to remote button presses (play/pause/etc.). Otherwise, I can't say that I'm seeing anything different lately.

    I sounds like your box caught the flu. Since chicken soup would not be good, my favorite cure is a Clear Program Information and To Do List. This can take an hour. Nothing will be lost except your History folder contents.

    On another note, does TiVo still use FieldTrials, is it worth keeping my profile/devices up to date? I haven't been invited in years NTTAOB ;)

    AFAIK, the fact that he revealed he is a tester breaks the NDA he agreed to. But no, he didn't reveal anything.

    I was a TiVo beta tester in the early days. That was fun! And yes, we were not allowed to tell people we were part of that group. For the life of me, I can't remember exactly what features we beta tested though. It's been too long ago. :D

    Been there done that but now a beta tester must not have an upgraded TiVo unit, that left me and many others out in the cold.

    You know what? I think I remember you! This was back when they had a separate forum just for Beta Testers right? Early 2000's?

    I have heard that is not necessarily true any more. Plus they also have to test new hardware ;) - I am just saying.

    Yes, but I will try again if upgrading you Roamio does not disqualify one for the beta testing, I still have a beta account with TiVo I can log into and put in my current TiVo information.

    I think it's going to depend whether you can help solve a problem. When I was invited, I said: sorry I have a 1TB upgrade. After a week they said it was ok since it made no difference and I was having the problem in question.

    That was the last I heard and I still have the problem. True, the audio dropouts are reduced, but not gone. And there is no change on a Mini.

    I finally got RC21 last night. The audio skips and brief black screens seem to be gone. I'm thinking about getting a Bolt this weekend to add 4 more tuners, an improved Hulu, and SkipMode. I'm seriously beginning to doubt SkipMode will ever make it to the Roamio Pro nationwide.
