    I guess I will try again tomorrow to see if skip mode is active. After 30 network connects I am pretty sure that isn't the answer for my boxes!

    I'd like to know this too. Especially the things like MeTV, Antenna TV, RetroTv, etc...

    A request for anyone who's received 20.5.6 on their Roamio DVR, and has a few moments to spare...

    If you could, please check and report back as to whether the 'Overlap Protection' configuration option is still present in the Settings menu:
    TiVo Central
    > Settings & Messages
    > Settings
    > Recording
    > Overlap Protection

    Thanks in advance...!

    p.s. Reason for concern documented, here. (I expect the option is still present on the Roamio, but just want to make sure.)

    Here's something odd. The above only seems to be for recordings. I was in Live TV and went into the menus and there was no video or audio drop out. It was a stereo program, so I figured that was the reason, but it did the same thing with a Dolby 5.1 program. I think that's new.

    I have no idea why recordings have a delay, but live tv doesn't.

    I just tested the "Press D for HD" feature by switching the guide to all channels (since I unselected SD channels) and going to an SD channel and it worked great.


    It's still there.

    Yes, overlap protection is still there with: yes, clip lower priority or no, cancel lower priority options.

    Re: audio On roamio, so far when I go to TiVo central, no audio dropout at all, back to live tv, maybe 1/2 second dropout. Much better than it used to be. On premiere, drops out just barely going to TiVo central & for about a second going back to live tv.

    Any stream updates or is it still as broken and useless as ever? Maybe TiVo can fix some real issues instead of superfluous stuff.

    I did a guided setup this morning and the Auto HD channel notification started working fine. I had already blocked out all the SD channels so I had to add one back in to confirm it was working.

    I don't think anybody with a Roamio thinks Skip mode and Quick Mode are superfluous.

    I got rid of my Tivo stream over a year ago when they built it into the Roamio. You might want to do the same, that was just a crutch until the base units could support it. I don't think that is something they are going to concentrate on but I could be wrong.

    Repeating guided setup fixed it for me in Tampa, Verizon FiOS.

    Love having the logos in the channel guide! I'm wondering the same thing about OTA subchannels. Seems like it would be pretty simple to implement--just upload all of the various logos, such as for those national networks listed above, and have TiVo fetch the logo that matches the channel description that already exists in the channel guide. When I cursor over to and highlight the channel name in the far left column of the channel guide grid, TiVo displays in the area at the top of the screen its call letters and, underneath that, the network name. For instance, when I highlight 4-3 WSMVDT3, at the top it displays "WSMVDT3 COZI TV". So my TiVo should already know that the appropriate logo to display would be the COZI TV logo, if it were available to fetch. As it is now, it doesn't display any logo at all for that subchannel.

    Now, I do have a couple subchannels that display "Independent" as a generic network name instead of the proper network name. In those cases, I can understand why there would be no logo to display, e.g. 5-3 WTVFSTA3 is actually Laff but displays "Independent" as the network affiliate name and does not display any logo.

    Message on Roamio says:

    "your TiVo will displays an option to "Watch in HD""
    need to say display.

    Not superfluous at all. QuickMode is of little interest to me, but SkipMode is truly awesome! No more pressing the skip ahead button 3,4,5 times and then having to skip back a couple times because you overshot the commercial break, no more of that with SkipMode; press the button one and you're done.

    Now we just need it for every channel! :D
