    Even my lower end 2015 Sony has four HDCP 2.2, HDMI 2.0a, and 2160P60 hdmi inputs.

    Re audio sync in Quick Mod:

    I noticed yesterday that my Quick Mode audio appears synced on CBS - one of the few channels (and, I think, the only major channel) that Comcast is still transmitting in 1080i (which I gather is MPEG-2). I think I previously wrote in this thread that CBS was not in sync. I don't watch much CBS and hadn't noticed.

    You can drive yourself a bit batty if you look very, very closely for audio sync, since I suppose many factors can slightly affect that, perhaps Home Theater receiver among other things. So I can't say that CBS is absolutely perfect sync, but it looks fine to me, while the non-sync'd channels remain significantly out of sync (with video well ahead of audio).

    If it's IN sync when NOT in QM using an A/V and OUT of sync when in QM, then it's their software...which it is and has been since 20.7.2 came out. It's not a mystery when all your tivos worked properly on 20.7.1 and before and as soon as it updated to 20.7.2 it was immediately noticeable. Hacks, my favorite word for Tivo, Inc development AND TESTING...

    Hmmm... maybe not so irreversible, per the screenshot in this post.

    Also, 20.7.4 appears to be in the wild, per a followup post.

    Couldn't be fast enough for me. Maybe some people's problems will go away like magic...maybe not...:rolleyes::D

    but I think yes...hoping yes...as for Hydra, still want to see a longer demo...and then wait until next year!!! No trust in their downgrade coding...

    Interesting, Hydra can't be that far off it those apps are appearing when you get the 20.7.4 update.

    I hope Hydra isn't as dysfunctional and non-user friendly as the new Hulu Experience from hell recently released. Massive customer backlash to Hulu and a lot of account cancellations, including me. TIVO should be reading the complaints in Hulu's Facebook, it's endless posts from upset customers, then make tweaks to avoid hurting the brand.

    For whatever it's worth - remember when I first got 7.2 and suddenly I couldn't use MRV and transferring shows took 4.5 to 6 hours for a one hour HD show? Furthermore, The boxes began, at that same time, to only see each other intermittently (although if I was transferring it wouldn't stop even if the other box was now showing in 'my shows')?

    Anyway, since I have a dual band router (from Charter - it's their equipment rented to me), one day I decided to change my network from the one that ends with 2G to the one that ends with 5G. At that time things got normal again between boxes - there is no intermittancy with each of them seeing each other, MRV is flawless again, and it takes about 6 minutes to transfer a one-hour hd show (wireless network).

    I don't know why the 2G became suddenly ineffective, but am glad that things are back to normal with the 5G. I just don't know if maybe I'm supposed to be paying more yo use that one. I can't imagine I am, if it's right there in the same router and just a matter of choosing the other 'network' listed (same network ID except for the 2G/5G thing.

    I don't know if that will help anybody else, but just wanted to share that info, FWIW. :)

    Maybe your 2.4GHz wireless network was on a wireless channel shared with another nearby neighbor's wireless network, causing congestion?

    That could make sense, but the only thing that perplexes me is that my network became so much less effective, ONLY with my Tivos, at the exact time that my first box got the 7.2 update. For all other internet use, there was no change in speed or quality and everything in my house is on the same wireless network.

    I guess it could be a coincidence, but I don't know.

    How did that user get 20.7.4 anyway? Anyone know? He did not seem to know, so he could not have been a tester or whatever.

    As I just posted in another thread, my Roamio Basic is running 20.7.4 and it is not involved in any testing nor involved in whatever. Like EVERY Tivo software change it gets pushed to the device.

    My Roamio and my Bolt are both running 20.7.4. I don't know for sure when the update happened, but the Bolt is only 2 weeks old; it did get an update when I first set it up but I did not check the version at that time.

    Are you using Netgear routers? There are Wi-Fi and bandwidth problems with their recent and newest firmware "fixes."

    Do you know the firmware version that has problems?

    I found that the internal wireless of a Roamio was very slow at 5GHZ. It was really slow at 2.4GHz even though the signal was stronger. A Bolt is faster from what I have seen posted.

    Reported on blogs with ver 1.0.7.. to 1.0.9... Those with problems are reverting back to 1.0.6... which seems to solve their problems. I'm running ver 1.0.9 early version without a problem and waiting for fixes to fix before installing ver 1.0.9.12 which is a security fix.

    If one has Cable, why would one use Wifi? Moca works real well. Or Ethernet if the place is wired.

    Must be a different device. My R8000 has four digits for its firmware. I run 1.0.3.36 since an upgrade changes the UI too much.
