    TiVo online issue went away for me on previous firmware 20.7.2. I doubt this new firmware is a fix for it. Somebody stated it is still not working with 20.7.4 . Total mystery for sure.

    Very bizarre, even for Tivo, Inc. Like it has been said, No pending restart on my Roamio Pro, but restart seemed normal and it was then at 20.7.4.RC2. QM problems seems to be fixed. Shockers, it was Them.

    XL4 updated too, but it went thru a normal semi-long update and was already on 20.7.2.RC24. Very strange.

    No sign of it yet on my Mini.

    Thanks again for the heads up. Will it never say Pending Restart again???

    My Roamio just rebooted on its own and when it started back up it went to installing an update and now I have 20.7.4. I checked earlier and I had no pending restart and my next connection was scheduled for around 11AM today. So I have no idea when it downloaded the update. I could have come with the VCM connection.

    And on Bolt:

    Yes! I was complaining loudly and often about audio sync with Quick Mode in previous release. (20.7.2. Was there ever a 20.7.3 release?)

    Quick Mode A/V synch has been fixed! Fantastic.

    I don't check the community here that often, but noticed the sync change just an hour ago. I'd been getting reluctantly used to being out of sync (no "gyrations" fixed sync for me - my A/V was out of sync 100% of the time), watching while ignoring the cognitive disconnect, so I really wondered tonight if my brain had adapted to the point where I had become completely oblivious. Checked some recordings, checked some live TV, took note of the TiVo release number and came here to check if there was a new discussion thread.

    This is real, and it's spectacular.

    Thank you TiVo.

    I can't comment on whether anything else is broken, but as long as I don't notice anything that personally inconveniences me, I am not disturbed by (or even aware of) UI changes I can adapt to with minimal to no effort.

    No more USA? My software version is 20.7.4.RC2-846-6-846 on a basic Roamio. It was always USA, and I've seen posts where it is USC. Never saw a post with USB. That might generate support calls. :)

    If "Pending" is dead, I will be very unhappy. :(

    Our Roamio Pro rebooted itself last night at 2:18am for the update. I didn't check to see if it had a Pending Restart before I went to bed though.

    This seems to mean that the guide will extend without viewing TiVo Central:
    Issue 461289: Incorrect Guide search screen may show if user has been viewing remote content and has yet to touch TiVo Central

    If that's true, it is still broken. But it may mean something else.

    Nice! The QuickMode fix is listed.

    Is there a way to find summaries for earlier releases, including the 20.7.3 I didn't know (might have) existed? Or do they overwrite it each time. Based on the publican history, it looks like they've been updating a single publication since 2015, in which case I'd have to save them.

    Does anyone have any from the last year, and can they be uploaded here?

    Seems fixed on my Roamio Pro as well. I've watched 2 shows in QM and closed captions also worked properly again. But that has been hit or miss for many months, so I'm not ready to declare it resolved.

    My original BT slide works fine on the Roamio after the update. Awesome to see that they finally fixed the YouTube lockup issue on Minis too (haven't tried that yet after update).

    Apparently, it's the V1 minis that are affected. Every single one of mine will no longer accept commands from any of my first gen bluetooth slide remotes. This happened to every one of them at the same time - right after receiving this update. It's described in another thread about this subject.

    Further, Tivo acknowledged the issue. Before contacting them I purchased a new slide remote pro, and it worked perfectly. Then after calling, and spending an enormous amount of time on the phone, they acknowledged the issue and finally agreed to replace the remaining old slide remotes. They did not refund me for the purchase (directly from them) of the other one. There are also others who have experienced this exact behavior since the recent updates. I never bothered trying the old remotes on either of my Roamios because at this point I'm very much of the mind of "if it ain't broke...." concerning Tivo. Plus, I already have the newer slide pro units on my Roamios.

    BTW, tried absolutely everything we could think of to troubleshoot this. Specifically......

    1) Unplugged mini for 10 minutes - then rebooted.
    2) "master reset" and repair on the slide remotes
    3) swapping slide remotes between units
    4) Obviously, replacing batteries (dumb, but....)

    The remotes still control TV and AV sources perfectly fine.
    The remote and the "USB adapter" still display proper blue light sequences - meaning that when you press a button on the remote, you see appropriate blue light response on both the remote and the USB adapter on the Mini.

    There is zero possibility that the recent update(s) are not responsible for the failure of the old BT slide remotes to communicate with V1 minis.

    I have printouts from 20.6.3 since, as you noticed, they will overwrite the page with each release. Should you decide to print this release, select "printer friendly" first.

    Sorry, no way to upload paper.

    This looks like an incomplete description:
    Issue 468336: May not be able to change Unrated TV and Movie

    Anyone recognize it?
