    D'oh! Oh man, I'm sorry. I thought - WTF? LMAO I'm an idiot. I'm overcome with stress lately and the heat isn't helping. I hate summer so much.

    I tried one thing, out of the blue, that might help since the update screwed up my Tivo to Tivo communication - I had an old cable from way back when I had my Series 2 machines. Had a guy come to my house and go under the house to string a cable with which I could hook the Tivos to each other. Not wanting holes (for bugs to come into my house), I just left them there after I had no further use for them.

    I hooked the Tivos together (not ethernet to the modem/router, just Tivo to Tivo) and set out to do a test transfer. Odd thing - about 5.5 minutes later my modem started going weird and twice so far I lost not only internet but the ability to tune to channels on the tv.

    The good part - when I checked after 5.5 minutes that one hour 1080 HD show had finished transferring.

    This just seems like a weird coincidence to me, as I cannot imagine hooking the Tivos together would freak out my modem so I don't know what the heck. Just hoping it stops. Only me...I swear. o_O

    Things are always happening. You can't know what might have happened at the same time as the update. This is my ISP's web site to track problems: PenTeleData S.M.A.R.T. Ticket System Overview Screen. Logged in as Guest

    I monitor it, but most changes are done Tuesday to Thursday. I check my modem logs, my router logs and run a speed test daily. But I have a lot of free time.

    What was the transfer rate? Check Network Settings, Network Troubleshooting, Transfer History.

    Thanks, Joe, and sorry for more seemingly OT on this thread. But I really, honestly, believe that my problems are because of the 7.2 update. I shall abstain again, but I got kind of excited about not being the only one who has this problem since the update. Meekly backing out. :) You are always so helpful and I sincerely appreciate it.

    Thanks. I added to my post to get your transfer rate.

    On the one I just did, after wiring the Tivos together, it says [93.91Mb/s]. Not knowing nearly enough about this area I can only assume that's good because it took less than 6 minutes to move that 1hr 1080HD show. :)

    PS: Noticed earlier than now it says 'on' for BOTH ethernet and wireless. I know that's because I wired them, obviously but wondering - Is that ok?

    It can't be done on a Roamio, but I don't know about a Bolt. If you try wireless and have Ethernet connected it gives you an error. If you are wireless and plug in a Ethernet cable, it switches. BTW, that bit rate is good for a 100Mbps port. I thought a Bolt was 1Gbps.

    Yes. Bolt to Bolt transfers can see speeds as high as 500mbps under the right conditions.

    We just noticed that on our Roamio Pro on rc24, the ticker that usually tells us how long the show is, and how far along we are in it, is only displaying how far along we are (e.g. 16 min), no indicator on the far right that the show is 30 min total.

    This is watching a live TV that is also being recorded through a one pass, CBS national news 6pm, KIRO.

    Just changed to local news at 6:30 (also a one pass recording) and the ticker is fine again, showing "30 min" in the far right.

    Have this now on all 3 boxes and also don't like the stark white and electric blue. But while I adjust to that, am am having trouble finding stuff. Have they done away with battery level on remote? Can't find hard drive size and usage - both those used to be in Account or Settings (can't remember what it was called).

    Yesterday had a weird glitch in that the playback and sound of a show I was watching wouldn't stop when I went to My Shows. Only way I could get it to stop was to start another program. A reboot fixed it. Hopefully that doesn't come back.

    Don't know if this is due to update, but transferring shows isn't working. I'm wi-fi, but still could transfer 90% of the time. Now, a show starts, but within a couple/few minutes stops, either because the boxes lost connection or just ... because.

    You are looking for the System Information page which is now under Settings & Messages - Help - Account & System Info - System Information.

    Another person has reported issues transferring shows after the update on wireless (but she just tested on wireless and it worked). Check out sharkster's posts a few up from this.

    For clients, we use the Tivo Bolt in the home theater and we have a couple amazon fire devices here and in our vacation home in Colorado. Been running Plex for a while now so the DVR capability would be an addition. Already have a plex pass lifetime licence and a plex cloud sever running. On the Bolt, the plex client handles 1080p at better than 20Mbps. I store all video on the server in mp4 format, mostly 1080p, h.264 level 4.1 and an AC3 5.1 audio track when available. These files direct play to both the amazon fire and Bolt clients.

    Gsod. Fixed hdd failure.... not sure why though it was a 1tb Seagate black drive. It's just strange it dies days after the update. Interesting note the original hdd was put back in and I noticed the tivo was still the latest software

    Starting with the Roamio, the software is on the board, not on the hdd. That's why you can simply slip in a new hdd and off you go.

    Anyone else still waiting for their Tivo to update to 20.7.2 RC24? My Roamio OTA is currently on 20.7.1.RC14-USA-6-846. The other Tivos on my home network (Roamio Plus, 1st generation Mini, and 2nd generation Mini) were all updated to 20.7.2 last week. In case it matters, my Roamio OTA participated in the Mavrik beta program and I think that is how it ended up on 20.7.1.RC14

    Thanks for clarification. I have a Bolt. Interesting you get it with MPEG-2, suggesting my hypothesis is irrelevance.

    For me, nothing fixes the audio sync problem - forward, rewind, pause, instant replay, exit and re-enter, reboot, or stand on my head ;). TiVo is not decoding the video/audio properly. While I have mental trouble observing this clearly, I am 99% sure the video is ahead of the audio, which I believe is the opposite of typical audio sync problems. My AV receiver has a sync correction setting that lets me delay the audio by up to 400 ms, but not delay video. (I keep it at zero.)

    Ah yes - the remote lag problem! I had been complaining about that extensively a few months ago. I eventually noticed that at least part of the problem was the remote briefly switching to IR (red light on remote) from RF (amber light on remote). A hard reboot (unplug the TiVo, wait, then plug it back in) would fix the problem.

    So: yes, the problem is now back BIG TIME, and till I saw this post of yours I did not connect it with RC24. I just thought "well, this problem pops up from time to time." Rebooting is NOT helping this time.

    Mostly it seems this time to be all about dropping the RF connection. Sometimes just moving the remote will reestablish RF. And it seems if I make sure to point the remote at the TiVo, the TiVo will respond whether it gets IR or RF. So the problem is most evident if the remote is not pointed towards the TiVo when it switches to IR.

    That can explain the TiVo not registering the remote keypress, but doesn't explain the lag entirely. It seems that there are times when the remote buffers the keypresses and may send out multiple at once; like if you press it twice, the first may be ignored briefly, then flushed out with the second. But if you wait long enough, sometimes the first keypress is entirely lost. There are timing problems here resulting in multiple variations of the symptoms, but I think what may be the common denominator could be simply the intermittent loss of RF connectivity.

    And this has gotten much worse with RC24.
