I see, its the first time i've seen them.
Same experience here--fortunately, they're not ubiquitous.
A common message, and often/typically not the case--may only take a matter of a few minutes. And not a radical change.
My OTA got the update this morning after I forced a connection. Nothing on my 2 Minis.
My Base Roamio got 20.7.2 RC22 during the initial roll out a few weeks ago. Last evening, I found it was Pending Restart, presumably with the RC24 build. I didn't get a chance to restart it, and figured it would restart itself in the middle of the night.
This morning, I checked it to find that it is still running RC22, and it is no longer at Pending Restart. I forced a connection, and there is no update available. I'm hoping this is just a temporary glitch.
Update finally hit my Roamio OTA overnight, RC24. Everything seems to be working. Nothing on my mini, yet.
I have two Bolts, one stock 1TB unit, and one 500GB box with an upgraded internal 3TB Toshiba drive. Both Boxes finally got the RC24 update last night (they were on 20.7.1 yesterday). Other than the obvious menu changes, I have not yet noticed any changes in normal operation - everything still seems to work the same as it did before on both boxes, but I haven't really had much time to play with it yet beyond just watching the recorded morning news programs.
Still forcing manual updates of all of my devices and no RC24. Tivo Roamio and 3 Minis.

I am also a full time captions user (FWIW) and after update Tivo CC displayed only a green area. I don't remember so many options before. If they were there I don't think they worked on my Roamio before? I now have it set to be usable. With so many options I wish Tivo would show a sample so I don't have to go into a recording to see how it looks. Does anyone have a favorite setting? I like it to be as unobtrusive but readable as possible.
my initial review of 20.7.2RC24 on a pxl:
install was quick, 15min from pending restart to live tv - i despise the new splash screens during reboot, they are ugly, dull, and very dark (hopefully i won't see them often).
much improved ffwd & rwd "smoothness" and responsiveness, especially at 2x speeds (both directions), and ticking backwards on freeze frame using the rwd button doesn't lock up as it has frequently with past software versions (since forever) - these are huge improvements, the biggest i've noticed.
no tremendous software/menu speed improvement, but the menus on my pxl have always responded much faster than my neighbor's premiere (ymmv).
color scheme and font size changes are ok, i like most of them, dislike a few, but not really a big deal for me, and i must have my contrast and brightness adjusted properly, as there was no "blinding" effect resulting from the change to a white highlight bar.
readjusting the closed captioning settings to what i prefer was the biggest headache, but after tinkering with them about half a dozen times, they're back to where they were, no reboots (minor nuisance).
skipmode not yet enabled, but i'm sure it'll appear in time.
no loss of functionality discovered, all apps and on-demand are operational, tivo desktop maintained connectivity with a big speed improvement populating show and pic listings to tivo
overall, very pleased, waiting to see if other premiere users report the guide tba issue is fixed, so i can reintegrate my ota channels into the guide
eta: music streaming via tivo desktop was also much faster and more responsive (like the shows and pics), played music files from my computer just fine.
Got it on our XL4 this morning. Went fine. Closed captioning was messed up, but no reboots when going into settings and changing it. It's a pain to remember what you want it to look like when choosing the options as I can never remember the opacity settings I prefer. And, I never remember which is background and which is container.
I used quickmode this weekend with my Bolt that has rc22. I used it with two one hour shows. And the audio and video never lost sync. The shows were being streamed from a Bolkt with RC24, so I'm not sure if that would make a differene.

Take a picture of the settings with your phone.
It may have already been noted, but the "Devices" screen(s) are still NOT in HD. I was really hoping for that to be converted over as I actually use it alot.
I like yellow text on a transparent grey background.
Agreed on the sample. Seems like an obvious thing; I have no idea why they don't show one.
Are you referring to older TiVo's (Pre-Premiere)? When I browse recordings on one of my modern TiVo's, the menu is in HD. This is true for all TiVo's running modern software (Premiere & up).
If I try to browse shows on older boxes, like my Series-2, it reverts to SD. Since TiVo has had a couple of sales trying to get people to retire their older equipment, I doubt they will spend any developer time updating the screen for browsing recordings on older TiVo's.
Got the update today on my Roamio Pro. CC settings got reset but that wasn't a big deal. Everything seems faster, esp moving from menu -> guide, and the audio skips when switching around. Not a fan of the colours, not terribly complementary because the gradients don't seem to have been adjusted. Go completely flat, not 50/50. But no complaints. Was looking at a Bolt+ because of some of the skipping issues, but hey, it's saved me a bunch of money, so I'm cool with it!
I got it on my Bolt last night, but still don't have it on one of my 3 Minis.
He is likely talking about either older devices or Pytivo shares....
I spoke with Margret a few updates back and she confirmed that local share screens would not be upgraded.
Got the update on my Roamio Plus today. I noticed it only because the menu icons are now flat rather than three-dimensional in appearance (although channel logos still show depth). My closed-captioning setup wasn't reset.
