    I received this update yesterday (Friday) afternoon sometime. Last night when I got home I checked to see if update was received and network connection said pending restart. Since I had nothing being recorded at the time I did the restart. After restart everything looked OK.

    I record the 10P local news every night and then watch it from behind about 10 minutes to cut out the commercials. While watching the news from behind (it was still recording) the Tivo rebooted on it's own for no apparent reason. When it came back up I checked network connection and it had a successful connection at about 915P and the next connection would be at 10:50p. I thought that was a little bit weird. But I finished watching the news and went to bed.

    This morning (Sat) I was watching a recorded show (nothing being recorded at the time) and it rebooted again. After reboot I checked network connection and it had a successful connection about 45 minutes earlier (I guess that's what caused the reboot. Next connection was in about 45 minutes. After that successful connection it rebooted again with a network connection due in about an hour.

    It looks to me, like it's going to continue the connections and reboots from now on no matter what I do. Have never seen this happen before with either TE3 or TE4. I guess if I can't get it to stop I will have to go back to TE3 and see if that fixes the problem.

    FYI - I have a bolt vox which came with TE4 in Jan of 2018, but I downgraded to TE3. Have had TE4 since Feb and have had no problems at all (other than this).

    Any suggestions or help to fix this problem would be appreciated. I'm not going to spend the time on the phone with Tivo support, if I can't get it to stop rebooting I guess I'll just go back to TE3 and lose the few recordings I have.

    Update:

    Since posting my box has rebooted 7 additional times, always after a network connection. I have now disabled wifi (and ethernet) and did power reset to Tivo and tuning adapter. I am going to see if that somehow will fix the problem. It looks like no one else on this version has had this problem, but I can assure you it relates the v6 update I received last night. Prior to that everything was OK.

    The guide doesn’t mention the “next” part. I think that’s still a bug.

    “To temporarily hide the background video or video window, press the SLOW button . To bring it back, press SLOW button again. To watch the video in full screen, press Exit”

    I agree, the 'next' doesn't make any sense to me either. OTOH, I'm not likely to ever use this feature once I've set it one way or the other.

    It's a bug. Hit Slow. Move anywhere and it then kills the window. Hit slow again. It takes effect on the next menu movement.

    Not that it matters, but with TE3, you hit Slow and the video stops but the audio switches to PCM, so sound effects (if enabled) will function. Hit Slow again and the window displays and DD comes back.

    Turned on my tv/woke TiVo to see if I had the v6 update.

    I did, but TiVo had lost all sound. Had to reboot.

    Still has bugs :(


    My mini still has the video window, is this an intended change or a bug? Previously minis only had the video window in the live guide.

    I had this issue briefly after the update yesterday no SKIP pop up with sound. But also SKIP wasn't working and I had it turned on to Automatic. The new option to toggle on/off under info during a recording wasn't working hitting OK/SEL didn't work. A reboot fixed all this.

    Haven't received v6 yet. One of the things I don't like like with T4 is when next program starts the mini info bar pops up. Couldn't find anywhere in the settings to disable this. A little annoying.

    I am on cable and the test seems to work as expected.
    Channels show strength between 92-95

    edit: Confirmed to be erroneous reporting. User was just confused.

    This post should be ignored.
    —-

    FYI... at least one user is reporting that they have the ability within the TE4 UI to initiate a show transfer from remote DVRs that are running TE3:

    I found another bug this evening. I started recording a show at 10pm. About 15 minutes into the show I began watching the DVR recording from the beginning while the rest of the show continued recording. A few minutes in I decided I didn't like the show so I selected "Stop Recording and Delete". That function stopped recording but did not delete the portion of the show that had already recorded.

    I am on the same version 6 on my Bolt and yesterday I was watching the recording of the golf tournament that had started an hour before and when they had a second rain delay I decided to quit recording and delete and it stopped recording and deleted the entire recording to that point.

    The default is to stop recording and keep it to that point, you have to cursor down one place to both stop and delete the recording. Are you positive you selected to also delete? I have done that twice since the latest update and it worked fine both times, so no bug on mine.

    This isn't a new bug, I've seen it many times and I don't have 21.9.1v6 yet.

    Has anybody been able to get the OTA signal strength meter to work. It shows 72 on all channels, even channels I don't get. It is a crucial part of a Bolt OTA to aim an antenna.

    This really needs to be fixed! I need to re-aim my antenna and I can't do it accurately!

    I suggest you try the Kickstart code to reload the current software - maybe something didn't happen just right with your update? If this was a regular problem with V6, there certainly would be more reports of it in these forums.

    No Signal Strength Meter at all for me - ALL channels just show "No Digital Signal". Maybe that is because the lowest channel in my channel list is currently off the air?

    Do the V1 Minis play well with the latest T4 release?
