    Sheesh, here is another thing that started for me just recently but I didn't associated it with a TiVo software update. In fact, I thought it was my imagination.

    I can't narrow what it is that I do, whether it's return to play from FF or from REW or from Instant Replay, but when I do, the video can play while the audio is muted. Most of the time, this doesn't happen. When it does, I'm damned confused - did I press the mute button? Obviously I have to rewind to replay the missed content.

    The user interface for program information is maddeningly inconsistent - nothing new, this has been true since I got my Bolt.

    I tried to make a list, but it was too difficult.

    Basically, though, when comparing the information in the main panel and right-side panel of My Shows and To Do List, what you find is various pieces of information scattered about in different places. So sometimes inside the right-hand box you'll see season and episode, with a description under it; and sometimes you'll see date, time and channel, with program length under it. And in several cases - different combinations.

    So to see season and episode information, sometimes you look inside the right-hand box and sometimes you look in the details at the upper left in blue. All other information is also moved around depending on what list you are reviewing.

    If there is some logic behind TiVo's choices, it escapes me. Maybe it has something to do with trying to integrate cable and streaming channel program information.

    I'm just used to poking around till I find what I want. I'm sure not going to try to remember their rules.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    SM: When you select play all in a folder SM no longer works.

    I had zero remote control issues prior to RC24.

    Now, with a Slide Pro remote, on a Bolt+, it continually misses key presses in RF mode. In IR mode, all is fine.

    I can recreate this problem on two different Bolt+'s, with two different Slide Pro remotes, in RF mode.

    It's as simple as just continuing to press the UP button, 10-20 times in a row, it will always miss a few presses. I can look at the yellow light on the remote, and the corresponding light on the Bolt+. Just continue to press slowly and you can be sure to see a missed button press.

    All is fine in IR mode, it's only in RF mode that there's a problem on RC24. Very easy to recreate.

    VERY frustrating.

    My original Slide still works fine in RF (or Bluetooth, can't remember what it is) mode with my Roamio after this update. Occasional double key presses and all, which is the remote's fault not the Tivo's and has been doing it since I got it.

    Hasn't missed or had delayed response to key presses, in other words.

    I just tried it on two Bolts with RC24. It is still working fine on both of them. They will still play all shows in a folder. And when each one starts it shows for example, 1 of 7, 2 of 7, 3 of 7 etc.
    It still works from local folders and when streaming from another TiVo, Bolt and Roamio.

    I have the same problems, just like you stated. My remote is set to use RF. Sometimes the remote sends commands in IR. Its usually my first two presses on the remote that gets sent in IR and then all the following ones will be sent using RF. Because of line of sight problems IR commands are ignored by my TiVo so it misses remote commands.

    Started for me with RC22 and got much worse with RC24.

    I've not been able to recreate the RC24 RF missing button press issue on the Roamio or the Mini, just Slide in RF on the Bolt+. Haven't tried Slide on Roamio or Mini, have standard remote in RF on Roamio & Mini (with dongle), Slide on Bolt+'s.

    Interesting stuff about remote problems since update. 99% of it is over my head, but I have definitely begun to have problems with the remote since the update. Often, no matter where, when I am scrolling on a page it won't do anything then it will rapidly scroll several lines downm even though I only hit it once.

    I have one remote that "stutters" like you describe. I have one remote that drops into IR mode due to interference. No change since last year.

    There are a ton of inconsistencies in the interface that are annoying. It is very hard to get program length and the one that drives me up a tree is that selecting the first dot in the info screen while watching a live program brings up information on the program and options. When doing the same watching a recording, nothing at all happens. If you want to "explore this show" you have to go back to the playlist for a recording.

    Just silly stuff.

    Definitely had this issue. A reboot has seemed to resolve the issue for me on my bolt!

    Thanks, Jack. I'll try that next time I can. It's been restarted (by me) a few times, for other reasons, since the update but maybe the next one will be the charm. :)

    Hope so. But I did have one major issue. My 1tb drive failed shortly after the update. It never recovered.

    Well, that sucks. I just have the basic 500GB Bolts and I haven't done any changes or anything so one of the things I hope for is that they last a long time. One is a yr & half old and the other one is just a few months old. Both were just absolutely perfect (aside from the stupid Rovi guide data issues) until the update and now I have some issues, but nothing (AFAIK) HD related.

    Sorry that happened. :(

    I will get this, and always have with the Bolt, if I'm watching a show and press the 30-second skip button quickly a few times in a row (such as, to skip over commercials). If, however, I press the skip button a bit more slowly, everything is fine. Irritating (it shouldn't be happening--the remote typically works so well), and I wish this was fixed, but live-able.

    Fortunately for me, this issue has only happened a few times, when the update first came--it almost felt like the update needed to "settle in" (which seemingly makes no sense). It was odd--similar to the behavior on my PC when it is involved in other labor-intensive tasks.

    Oh I better check - mine still says 'Cult'. Just within the last couple of days I started the Pass for this new season, so I had to check to make sure it still says the same thing.

    There seems to be no limit to the weird guide data crap we get these days. SMH
