    I am also getting the not linked message on my premiere. Talked to support and they were no help other than telling me lots of people having the same problem. Rebooted several times still no activation code. I guess they have some bugs to still work out.

    Mine did not work yesterday evening. But it did this morning. (No reboots or software updates in between)

    So I suspect as Ted said, they're working out problems on the back end.

    Received RC42 on Roamio. Somebody needs to update the version web page.

    Well I was finally able to link my amazon device to my Tivo. I love most tech but after doing it I say at least for me what a waste. It is much easier using a hand remote than giving Alexa verbal commands in my opinion. In theory it's cool but for practical use it's a big let down. Oh well.

    sweet home, al
    on the up side, at least now, when you yell at your tivo, there's a chance it will respond. :D

    Alexa really comes in handy when you're eating ribs (for example), the phone rings and you need to pause without getting BBQ sauce all over the remote. The poor phone, though ...
    Same for commercial skip.

    Likewise when cooking or, as pictured in the TiVo "Demote the Remote" demo. video, when eating popcorn while watching television and having fingers coated with butter. ;)

    Yep, I've now demoted the "dedicated clean remote pinkie". I can eat with all ten fingers.

    Speaking of cooking (and I too watch TiVo on my tablet in the kitchen ... usually live sports), I'm going to test to see if Alexa works with my Slingbox (I'm guessing yes) and the TiVo app on my tablet (guessing no there) for pause and SM. I have an Amazon Tap and can easily take that into the kitchen along with my tablet. Will report back.

    I just got this update on one of my Bolts yesterday I guess. I didn't even realize there was an update going on until I went to bed last night and saw the Tivo clock was gone on that machine. Haven't seen anything different from it, but if it's about the Alexa thing that would explain it since I don't use that.

    I got RC42 on Roamio, Roamio OTA and Bolt, no love for the Roamio Plus or Mini v2 though.

    I got RC42, and noticed these changes:

    1. Get New Experience has reappeared in My Shows, and now I can't find any way to remove it. There is no entry in Add & Manage Apps to uncheck.

    2. Likewise, Amazon Alexa is in My Shows with no way to remove it.

    Will TiVo_Ted please confirm if these changes are intentional?

    I would restart if you haven't done that yet.

    I tested the Slingbox on my tablet in my kitchen and, as expected, the underlying TiVo responded to pause/play commands from afar. Also as anticipated, the TiVo app did not respond, likely because it works through the TiVo Stream which is not Alexa enabled.

    Do you see Alexa and Get New Experience in My Shows?

    My Premiere just connected. It received the Alexa message. I removed it in Apps. It's no longer displayed.

    I just went in and checked - bloody hell. They didn't add Alexa in (again), thankfully. But they did add that stupid 'What to Watch Now' into 'My Shows' again and, of course, no way to delete it. This rather pisses me off. Let me have what I freaking want in 'my shows'. Plus that WTWN is also on 'Tivo Central'. WTF does it need to be in two places?

    Sorry, some of that little stuff really hacks me off because it's like Tivo thinks I'm so stupid that they need to plaster stuff all over the place and then not let us have the choice to make it go away if we don't use it or don't want it cluttering up OUR pages.

    I'll probably restart my other Bolt after it finishes recording a show that's on now (I saw it had connected earlier this morning and is on 'pending restart'). Or maybe I won't now that I know that more clutter is coming.

    Here's a suggestion to Tivo - How about putting 'What to Watch Now' under 'Apps' so that we can delete it? Same goes, IMO, for the ads that appear often on the TC page. There has never been a time, over all these years, that it's been something that interests me. I'm not saying take it away from others because of that, but how about the choice? Thanks for listening.

    Get New Experience in My Shows is more than clutter or annoyance. It is a ticking time bomb, just waiting to be accidentally/unintentionally activated by a child or someone who doesn't know the consequences.

    That's strange. I can't remember when WTWN was not in My Shows.

    My Roamio has no entries in Apps to remove Alexa, New Experience, or What to watch now. I want none of these in My Shows but cannot remove them.

    It just hit me (I know, duh) that this 'Get New Experience' is the prompt to 'upgrade' to Hydra. I hope they are not trying to push that again to the extent that it will become compulsory. I remember it being on my machines before, but it was deletable under Apps.
