New version, new thread.
Even with a new thread, the OTA Signal Strength Meter doesn't work!
Only change I've noticed so far: On the Mini, coming out of standby, pressing Live TV button, program title correctly displays. In v8 it would say "title not available" until changing channels.
Just picked up V9 on a Bolt - strange problem right off the bat - ALL channels are having trouble tuning in. No errors, but changing channels with either the number pad or Ch+/- initially just gets a blank screen, with a delay of 10 - 30 seconds (estimated, not yet timed) before anything shows up. I did a re-scan to verify existing channels with no change. I'll update this later after I do more testing.
After about half an hour, it has gotten better, but still seems sluggish compared to what this box has always done in the past. Now scanning every channel with the Ch+/-, I get a consistent 3-4 second delay after the channel change before a picture actually comes on.
I noticed that there are shows showing up on my TO DO LIST which are not marked NEW which is required by all of my one pass options. I had to go through two weeks of upcoming shows to individually cancel those shows.
All of my 1P's are set to record New only. The Big Bang Theory is currently showing on my To Do List for 5/23 & 5/30. Neither episode says new on the List or in the Guide. Other List entries look correct.
I dont know if that is v9 related, i was having the exact same issue yesterday and I am still on v8. This morning is better but it still seems slow. usually in the 3-4 second range you reported
I was getting the long delays immediately after I rebooted to pick up the V9 release. Since it has gotten better, I'm assuming the first issue was caused by the box doing some internal cleanup or other maintenance right after the update.
Trying to use arrow buttons to scroll up or down quickly in the My Shows list by just holding down the arrow causes the whole list to 'page' after the 4th program. VERY irritating and unnecessary! If I wanted the whole thing to jump a page, I would hit the page down button (Ch-), NOT hold the arrow down. If I am using the arrow, it is because I want it to move that way, NOT to page!!!!
This issue is not specific to just the new V9 (I saw it in V8 too, not sure about V5), but I am pretty sure it is specific to 21.9 after they gave us the full lists back.
There is a ton of generic data for CBS shows. This was there before the v9 update. Generic data shows record as a safety measure.
Got 21.9.1.v8 on one (a mini vox) out of four TiVos so far, the rest are still on 21.8. WTH?
force a connection
I would agree this is not a bug, but I was disappointed to see that v9 still does not respect my Power Settings or at least provide a separate option to prevent Standby when CEC is enabled. I do not want my unit going into Standby, ever.
Alexa does change channels for me (Bolt). The only problems I experience with inputs occur as a side effect of Standby, but such differences are hardly surprising given the wide variety of user configurations.
I did all that, forced connections reboots over and over to no avail. I'm guessing that the versions are changing so fast they don't have a chance to get to my boxes.
Weird that one device on your account updated and not the rest. Unless they're on different accounts? Anyway, they'll eventually have a stable "final" release of 21.9.1, and then the rest of your devices, along with everyone else still on 21.8.3, will get it.
Without the thumbs, they will need to change restart and other functions.
Many won’t like that, but pulling the dependency off thumbs up/down (and the peanut remote) means the TiVo Prod & Services Division can package and sell TiVo software and services to be loaded and used on multiple IPTV configurations that will likely already have their own remote
IMo, it wouldn’t hurt TiVo to provide and license co branded peanut remotes to those providers as well an improve the customers overall experience and increase “TiVo” services adoption...sorta like just have a Netflix button on tv remotes etc

Yes, I agree. Very irritating and disorienting! IIRC this behavior was present when I got my Bolt in September 2018.
If you want to get to a line 2/3 of the way down the screen, you can only press the down arrow individually for each line. Really stupid.
If you hold the down arrow, you skip to the next screen. If you purposely skip to the next screen with the intention of backing up to your target, you can't hold the up arrow or you will go up an entire screen after a couple of seconds, overshooting your target the other way.
This is a totally unnecessary gimmick that should be eliminated.
why would they need to change the buttons are still on the remotes just not used for ratings
The point is that if they want TiVo software to be used with cableco remotes, then they'll need a more standard set of buttons. So they'd need to remap the functions that currently are Thumbs to other buttons.
That is one theory as to why they've eliminated Thumbs...
