    I'll do the same. Never had an issue like this before with Tivo. Hopefully they fix this, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Just to add my experience with 20.6.3.

    HDMI handshake issues. I have a Sony soundbar connected between my 2010 Samsung plasma and the Roamio. When the soundbar is off, audio is output to the TV as 2.0 stereo, which is expected. But when I then turn on the soundbar, the Roamio continues to output 2.0 when DD5.1 is expected. I can get it to switch to DD5.1 when I enter and exit TiVo settings. Then when I turn off the soundbar, often times (maybe every time, I'm not sure), there's no audio output at all until I enter/exit settings.

    Picture issues. I have Comcast in the Bay Area. Many channels (maybe all) have a weird thing in which the picture pixelates/scrambles every few minutes. The occurrence is very quick for like a second, but is a bit annoying. And the recording of Walking Dead yesterday was more severe in which every few minutes, the pixelation is accompanied by audio loss, both for 4 to 5 seconds at a time. A terrible experience. Has anyone experienced this? Pixelation is probably not the right word -- I just don't know how else to describe it.

    I've reset the box, but that didn't fix things.

    Thanks for confirming I'm not the only one. Note that I have NOT reported the issue to TiVo in any way as I usually dread doing so because they always insist the problem is specific to me and make you do a whole bunch of useless stuff that won't help solve the problem. So if you have more patience than me it probably needs to be something formally reported to TiVo to have any chance of getting fixed.

    I've been accusing my wife of not hitting the left button when leaving the mini in order to release the tuner. She denied this. It now appears that the mini keeps going live on its own and grabbing a tuner.

    An EAS test will put a Mini online unless it's in Standby.

    True, but it's not that. Also, if I leave it alone, it doesn't give it up after 4 hours.

    I'm in the Denver area and have experienced this problem recently and intermittently with Comcast. I don't believe it's related to the TiVo. I have X1 boxes as well as a Bolt and the issue occurs everywhere, including for neighbors with X1 equipment.

    That's really interesting. I had to write a WH script to do a Guide function every once in a while to keep it from the stupid 4 hour cutoff. I worked hard on it and of course had to lookup alot of things to do it. I run it on my Desktop before I go to bed every night!

    I do not have this problem, but maybe it is because I have only ONE mini?

    Tivo supervisor called today to collect additional info today saying that they have had very few HDCP errors reported and of those that were, 90% were resolved by customers
    changing their configuration (ie., bypass receiver).

    I noticed after the update, my Mini holds on to a tuner on my Roamio Pro and doesn't automatically release the tuner after 4 hours. Work around is to press the Tivo Central button on the Mini's remote.

    Since RC7 I now have experienced the white noise issue on my new Roamio OTA and a mini. I have never have the issue before.

    Same here. TiVo Bolt to Marantz (NR1606) to LG OLED65B6P. If you pause or forward through shows the resulting volume level is a crap shoot. From the Marantz it shows DD when things are well but after a while it drops to PCM stereo. The fix for me has been to go into TiVo settings and turn audio to PCM; wait until sound comes back; then turn on Dolby Digital again. This results in good 5.1 sound for a day sometimes - today only an hour.

    This has been consistent even before I replaced the AV receiver and TV from Yahama receiver and Panasonic plasma a week or two ago. The cables were replaced with new, quality HDMI 2.0a. I also don't have any issues with other sources like AppleTV, BluRay, etc.

    The TiVo is dropping the DD stream down to PCM. My receiver isn't likely deciding to downgrade it only from this source. Especially since it's two different brand receivers, cables, and TVs.

    Can you describe the issue you see? Is it every few minutes? With me, it's usually a just a portion of the picture that breaks up for a second, sometimes accompanied by audio breakup, and it literally occurs every 5 to 10 minutes. I just assumed TiVo was at fault, since it seemed to have started occurring right after the 20.6.3 update. At one point I thought that maybe it depended on whether the channel was MPEG-2 or H.264, but that is not the case.
