    I think those are apps that have 2 duplicate entries due to some oversight.

    One entry is hideable. The other is not. For example I unhide OperaTV then there are 2 OperaTV entries. If I hide it, one goes away.

    Given how much moyekj knows about skip mode working on kmttg, he would know if he got it or not.

    No SM on Premiere XL or XL4 with 20.7.2.RC24 update!

    I found my Roamio Pro was updated when I got home last night. The white font was the first thing that I noticed. (I did not sign up for the priority list.)

    I've had RC22 for a while. The TiVo Central Apps option dropped the above noted apps. If you checked them they came back but also appeared in My Shows. This morning I noticed my other Roamio received RC24, the new apps and that the old apps have come back. I unchecked the new apps, and now the TC Apps look like 20.7.1, which is ok with me, but others may object. It's a personal thing I guess.

    I hope my other RC22 Roamio gets RC24 soon, along with three of my four Mini units and Premiere still on 20.7.1.

    Minis appear to be last priority. Neither of my Ver 2's (93000) have it.

    One of my v2 Mini units (on the list) got it a while ago. More keystrokes to get to Standby. :)

    So my 2 tuner Premiere got RC24 last night (still had old menu style with new coloring). My Roamio Pro got RC22 last month and it just connected and still hasn't gotten the RC24 update.

    I wonder if they are updating RC22 boxes to RC24 or not.

    On a side note, I went into the CC screen on my Premiere and successfully modified the settings. It did not reboot.

    A small victory for TiVo and its customers!

    First 24 hours with RC24: After waking up to the upgrade on both Bolts yesterday morning, I did watch quite a few hours of TV yesterday, but I wasn't trying to play around with a lot of features for testing. One spontaneous reboot while using the Amazon app - this is notable for me, since I use it a lot and have NEVER seen a spontaneous reboot that I can recall on one of my Bolts before yesterday. Unfortunately, the Amazon app still freezes a lot, just like it always has on the Bolt, so no improvement with that problem from the new software.

    Just tested QuickMode this morning for the first time - IMMEDIATE audio sync problems that I never saw with 20.7.1, so I will say that I think this was definitely broke with the update.

    Interesting observation on the QM audio Sync problem: It seems to be program/channel related! I record two different local morning news programs - the one on the NBC affiliate has terrible sync problems with QM on (but NO problem in normal mode), However, the local new program on the CBS affiliate has not shown any sync issues under QM so far.

    My v1 and two remaining v2 Mini units received RC24 overnight. Still have a v2 on RC22.

    Update: my basic Premiere is installing the update.

    My favorite thing is the new recording .

    The white highlight text is garish, ugly, obnoxious, and needs an adjustment preference. Hopefully the change presages a user preference setting to be added.

    Finally I can stop hearing "but the menu isn't HD". Oh, the menu I never visit? /yawn

    I have no doubt he got skip mode, but I until more people can confirm it, there is a chance TiVo made an error with his account. It seems like moving skip mode down to Premiers would be a big enough deal to mention it, especially if it goes to the Premiers being used by cable companies. I guess time will tell.

    The mini will! Go into standby on its own. Just hit the TiVo button when done watching something and it will give up the tuner.

    I like the white text. For me, it's easier to read.

    While it's true that the Mini will release its tuner, it's not the same as Standby. I get weekly (or more) EAS tests. They will activate the Mini if it's not in Standby.

    Last week I had a "Nuclear Yearly" test. That was scary. Most of my EAS tests are in the morning, so they only mess with my viewing of the previous night's programs.

    My trusty flip-phone doesn't take pictures but, noting the increased 'upgrade' activity this afternoon (via my tablet, since I was just waking up) I checked my Roamio Basic's System Information earlier (well, yesterday since I'm still up) and, lo-and-behold, I found "Pending Restart". Woe is me! :( Time to face the music.

    I grabbed a handy Amazon Fire tablet and went to 'Closed Captions' - they're all set to DEFAULT!?! :confused: A lot of good a picture of that does, right?

    So, I 'Right-Arrowed' each such that they all displayed something useful, took a picture with my ~$50 tablet, and, hopefully, when I'm ready to lay back and watch TV again, I'll be able to (re)set my Closed Caption parameters to what they previously were.

    On a slightly different note, while my Roamio Basic said "Pending Restart" several / MANY hours ago, both my Roamio OTA 500GB and Roamio OTA 1TB decided, all on their own, to 'Restart' and when I checked each a few hours ago, 20.7.2, along with it's 2D screens, was already in place. o_O

    Folks paid mucho bucks for Bolts to see THIS? :rolleyes: YUK! :p We'll see how I feel about it after a week or so.

    As long as it works, I guess...

    OT:
    I just came back from a quick trip down to the basement to get another refill of my 'favorite beverage' and I spotted my old Pentax VHS Recorder on top of the frig. This innovative design featured a 'Recorder' that separated from the 'Control / Timer / Display' base for portable use. I remember one day, decades ago, when I took the family to an Air Show (I love airplanes; I even got myself a Private Pilots License ASEL w/ IFR; Look at my UserID.). I brought the Pentax Portable VHS Recorder, a huge (Pentax?) color camera to plug into it, an old (but good enuf) 12V auto battery (for 'unlimited' power) and my son's "Little Red Wagon" to drag this stuff from the van to the flight line (along with our cooler and folding chairs). I was able to record ALL DAY LONG!, in COLOR!!, WOW!!!

    Nowadays, you can carry a full HD 1080 recording setup in your pocket.

    Progress...

    P.S. I hope that some folks reading this can also reminisce and enjoy a smile. :cool:

    P.P.S. DON'T tell folks to "Click to Expand" (to see the highlighted section in my reply) because 'someone' will complain. :eek: Trust me - I saw it happen!

    I use QuickMode every day for the 'Evening' and '11 PM' News - today will be my first attempt w/ 20.7.2. Fingers crossed...

    OT, but, hopefully you (or someone else reading this) can guide me to the proper thread(s) / area.

    I *FINALLY* bought myself a NAS (with a Celeron J1800 and 2GB RAM) so it can handle also being a Plex Server nicely as long as, IMO, my Plex Clients are either Direct Play or Direct Stream (LOTs of reading these past few days!). This Roamio limitation of 720p / 4GBps MAX (BIG 'B' or little 'b', I don't remember; it doesn't work so screw it either way :p ) really caught me off guard, but I'm researching running pyTiVo on my NAS to compensate. [BTW, if anyone is interested, pyTiVo w/ a decrypted .mpg, .txt and .srt file 'seems' to work much better than just a .tivo file. Downloading a .tivo file back to your TiVo device is NOT the same as what you started off with on your TiVo unit. Strange, but true... :rolleyes: ]

    If YOU are using Plex with a TiVo, which TiVo / what Plex Server hardware / any transcoding involved?

    After my Roamio Basic / OTA 'barfed', I tried my LG Blu-Ray player w/ SmartShare (IIRC) and my Patriot PBO media streamer. It looks like I need to save everything as H.264/AAC MP4 to be compatible with the majority of 'clients'. The Patriot seems to take most .TS / .MP4 files with no problem but the LG is being fussy. The bit about the Moov Atom was interesting reading...

    I liked to see the little "TiVo Guy" dancing; he was dancing around on my Philips Series 1 almost two decades ago - how much did that cost in CPU cycles? Why did he have to 'freeze' (or disappear completely)?

    And now everything (that I've viewed thus far - only a few minutes) seems to be 2D?!? We're not talking Windows 'Aero' (GPU intensive) animations here, just a little shadow here and there. YUK! :eek:

    Who makes these unfavorable decisions?
