My Roamio Basic received 20.7.4RC2 a few weeks ago, my Mini is still running 20.7.2RC24.
Mine was also updated last night.
Some people are reporting that despite their boxes not being in “pending restart”, that the box updated to 20.7.4 after rebooting.
People were restarting because guide data wasn’t updating. My was not, but eventually worked itself out, so I didn’t restart. I’m assuming that if I actually get the update it will update on its own.
I began a restart. It's now installing an update.
Update done. Music apps are gone.
Seems like all the Apps can now be turned On or Off and they've been split into 2 sections; Apps that will be used in TiVo Search and Apps that you'd like to add to the Apps menu.
Actually I just double checked any my box is on 20.7.4.RC2. I guess it rebooted on its own despite not showing pending restart. That could also explain why I got new guide data.
Other than the Apps being consolidated in one group, has anyone noticed any other changes?
I noticed that when I go to Apps - Add & Manage Apps and then scroll all the way down to the bottom, there is a check mark next to Hydra Downgrade App and Hydra Upgrade App.
Local HME apps (like streambaby) now show up again under "Apps" menu, so TiVo fixed that.
While they document that checking an app makes it display in TiVo Central, Apps, they failed to mention that it also shows up in My Shows. However, it always did so I guess that's not really new.
I only realized that I have 20.7.4 because I was looking through settings and info for clues to the C130 issue I am/was having this morning.
Our new Bolt had a Successful Service Connection at 4:22am this morning. Next Scheduled is 4:40pm today. It's been a while since I noticed, but weren't these closer to 24 hours than twelve? Maybe it's 12 after a SW update?
When I first woke the TiVo from standby this morning, I had the top banner stuff as normal. A couple of minutes later I got the C130 "No Internet Connection" issue, but Testing Internet Connection passed multiple times.
My first thought was to check ToDo to see if I was out of data, but it wouldn't let me, citing the C130.
Then I saw that, on the TiVo Central screen, when on Apps or Manage Recordings... the entire right panel text was greyed. I find it odd that we need network connectivity for everything under Manage Recordings...
Anyway, while I was typing all this, my banner stuff came back. So either the Tivo had some housekeeping that impaired some other Tivo process, or not connecting to a Tivo server is mistaken for "No Internet Connnection". Good times.
Moved from 20.7.2 has arrived thread, thank you to thread starter]
Arrrrrgh! Here's a VERY ANNOYING thing that changed after the two reboots yesterday/today. Roamio Plus, 6 tuner, cable. Have been on 20.7.4RC2 for a couple of weeks.
We have OnePasses set up for our NBC local channel news (5:30pm), national (6pm) and local news (6:30pm).
Usually we switch over from another channel (live TV) to the tuner with the 6pm national live, e.g. at 6:10pm or something like that. Back up to start, watch national, sometimes pausing multiple times. This pause occasionally lasts up to, say, 6:40pm. Because it was recorded, the paused program has =always= stayed on-screen, so when the 6:30 local comes on, it takes another tuner to record in the background. The pause continues for a long time (never tested how long, but 30-40 minutes at least, maybe much longer). When we got through the national then it would seamlessly play the 6:30pm local. Occasionally we would have to rewind back to the beginning, but usually not.
Tonight, at precisely 6:30, while the 6pm national was paused at the 6:20 mark -- bammo -- the "tuner focus" what is basically liveTV being recorded, switched to the 6:30pm local -- bye-bye paused national. And the national program in the buffer didn't have any indicator for "resume play", it started at the beginning, at the 6pm mark.
This wasn't because it needed to grab a tuner to do some other recordings, there were at least 2 non-currently recording tuners available.
the hydra apps do nothing also on tivo's in cox service areas we have a coxVP app but nothing happens like the hydra apps and no info from cox or tivo on the new cox app
I noticed that, too, after one of my Bolts had updated. I unchecked both - not sure why, but I probably just didn't want any surprises.
Considering those two Apps don't actually appear anywhere other than the manage screen, I don't think checking or unchecking those Apps does anything.
I can verify for sure there is no pending update status in my case. I went to a Roamio and connected to mothership because my other Roamio Pro was already on 20.7.4.RC2. The connection went very quickly, didn't even really spend much time loading data. Verified no Pending Restart status. Wasn't about to play the game of connecting again because it would be unlikely I'd receive an update if I wasn't picked. Then remembered folks here said they never got a Pending Restart message, so I restarted on my own. Then it gave me the perform software update message.
I timed how long it took to reboot and it was a little over 2 minutes, which is basically the same amount of time it takes my Roamio to normally boot, give or take. So with the no "Pending Restart" notification and the very fast reboot, I concluded this wasn't a full software update in the sense that we are used to. This is possibly (some conjecture here) some scripts that were being run to prepare your unit for the Hydra update and fix a few minor issues with the list of Apps being displayed. Probably just fix a few database entries.
Not even worthy of an update to the release notes web page.
Did anybody notice the new User Preference to change highlight bar from White back to Yellow?
Local HME apps (Streambaby, Galleon) are fixed
Exclamation point on pyTivo video shares is fixed
Playing music (on Roamio) is still broken
Colors/highlights are still ugly/unreadable
Are unreadable closed captions fixed?
Some people are reporting fixed double remote key presses and fixed TiVo online viewing.
These may have been related to this release.
The double key presses might also be coincindental with the reboot, which has temporarily resolved the issue for some people in the past, so give it a couple of days before making the conclusion.
The TiVo online viewing problem might be a fix with this release or could be a fix on TiVo online coincidental with this release.
