    We are horizontal!

    Seems to be some interests in documenting this release. If nothing else, this will be a good place to post the Release Notes.

    BTW, the Overscan option works on a Mini, where someone using 480i output may need it.

    It does seem the resolution problems are fixed.

    My Mini connects to a Sony TV. The TV has CEC disabled. When I put the Mini into Standby and turn off the TV, I now need to wait for the message to drop before I power off the TV. If not it stops and doesn't enter Standby.

    On the bright side, it seems you can now wake up a Mini from Standby with the Live TV button and you get Live TV. Before any key gave you the Home screen.

    When you apply the update, the default resolution is set to Auto. Hydra thinks my TV prefers 1080p60. Encore thinks it prefers 1080i. Seems SI does update ok. I don't have a 4k TV, so I can't test that.

    When I apply power to my Mini VOX, a channel change is still needed to get video. I thought that was fixed

    Anyone else notice that the Amazon App disappeared in this update?

    No, works fine for me.

    On a related note, my Mini VOX has been streaming YouTube at 1080/p24 for the last 30 minutes.

    For some reason Amazon did that on every device I have back in March. The app selection is still used with Search.

    Any app listed in the user preferences can be assigned one of the free numbers and then show on the menu bar.

    Can someone (@TiVo_Ted) address the "suggestions gone crazy" problem? My Tivo is recording all kinds of random TV shows (kids stuff, news programs, etc.) and hasn't recorded a movie since 5/1. Something has gone totally wrong with suggestions!

    Mine have gone crazy too. Today I turned them off so I don't have to deal with 50+ suggestions a day! (BTW, none were ones I would have watched and only a handful were series I might have watched had I not already seen the episode.

    When addressing this issue, PLEASE add the ability to thumbs down from the list. Having to go play the recording to "dislike" it is a terrible burden! I might still have suggestions turned on if I could manage the likes from the show list.

    Years ago the advice was turn suggestions off and with every new Tivo I have. I know what I want to record that why I have a DVR.

    Still curious if Thumb ratings were cleared with the update. Can someone having a problem with too many Suggestions check your OnePass shows for a Thumbs Up?

    Is anyone having issues with channel signals after this update? My mini which connects to this bolt works just fine, but the bolt cant get a lot of my channels now.

    I have a very small channel selection. No programs have ever had a thumbs up since when I made the ONLY 1P, I killed the green thumb. I also ran the clear thumb & suggestion process. I still have two or three red indicators on at all time.

    Maybe they introduced a new algorithm for Hydra users that records anything and everything on boxes with zero Thumbs.

    It’s still not clear if the update wiped the ratings.

    If I was having the problem I’d start giving Thumbs down to suggestions I don’t like and Thumbs up to ones I do.

    ETA - in another thread you mentioned that your Hydra box only gets two channels. How do you get three suggestions at once?

    I just disabled suggestions for now. As for the red dots, TiVo doesn't care if I have signals for channels in my guide until it's finished recording. I have a dozen channels selected, including the two with signals. I make a manual recording on one of those daily. I could get another cable card, but I really don't need it to play with Hydra. Funny, until RC6 I could not view Recording Activity on the host or its Mini. I would get kicked out. That's ok now.
