    I don't have it either, but here's the thread! ;)

    Is it only Bolt people who are getting it so far?

    So far I think I have only seen 2 people say they received the update. One said they have the commercial skip and the other does not.

    I'm the latter. I'll try rebooting it this evening to see if that helps.

    I'm still confused with the numbering system now. Which is the old system and which is Hydra?

    Before someone jumps in and claims it is not even called Hydra anymore (now it is Mira), I'll suggest that the best way to refer to the two releases now is:

    TE3 (TiVo Experience 3, or Encore, AKA the "old" UI, Software Version 20.xx) and
    TE4 (TiVo Experience 4, or Hydra, or Mira, or 'whatever', AKA the "new" UI. Software Version 21.xx).

    That said, I also believe that just about everyone here recognizes "Hydra" as the new TE4 User Interface, and even with the newest update, calling it Hydra or TE4 is infinitely better than trying to use new intermediate code names, such as Mira.

    I will repost my photos to this thread as they are more release related than just skip (the other thread).

    Thanks. Yes, only two or three. I keep checking my Mini too.

    I agree 100%, but you left out "quattro" for TE3. (See last two lines of System Information).

    Yeah, but "quattro" has never* been used on these forums to refer to TE3, but Encore has. I tried to just include the names that other readers might have regularly seen but possibly still be confused about.

    I guess I should have included gen3 and gen4 also, since those were some of the original names used, but they pretty much disappeared after TiVo announce that Encore was the official moniker they were using to refer to the old UI.

    * Well, almost never - TiVo_Ted did refer to it way back in February 2018.

    This release might include a fix for transferring shows between units via Tivo Online. At least that is what TiVo_Ted told me last year. I'm referring to the problem many of us have where transferred shows freeze up during playback.

    Fingers crossed.

    I wonder how long before TE3 is called "legacy"?

    So with Skip Mode in automatic, do you still see the notice up in the corner, or does it just happen? Also, was it already in auto, or did you have to enable it?

    The notice appears briefly. You see a 1/2 second of the break before it jumps.

    I had to enable it, IIRC. And there's no option on the minis. If the host DVR auto-skips, the minis follow suit.

    Hi Tony,

    I'm interested to get your view on the UI changes as those screenshots seem to make it more TE3-like (I have not seen TE4 in person so all I have to go by are the screenshots and other content that's been posted).

    I could wait, but since you've been nice to answer questions, I have one. Does 21.9 affect the "D" or channel up? I watch late night and almost never see the prompt. As soon as the host says "we'll be right.." I hit the button. With prime time scripted dramas the timing can not always be so easy. So, does "D" conflict with just waiting?

    You can still do channel up or D. I do that for the Voice since I skip a lot of the touchy geeky stuff.

    Other than the autoskip, I don’t really care since I had turned off most of the strips in the My Shows section. The only thing I like better is that it is easier to get to other devices than it was.

    With the TE4 move to a more autonomous Mini, I also find that strange. Maybe they'll add it when the wireless adapter is available. :(
