    Just got v9 yesterday on my Bolt Vox and I am going to be a positivity troll here...I love the new My Shows GUI!!! Thanks Tivo! I do not have any issues everyone here is having (knock on wood). My Tivo is actually faster. Channels, tuning, arrows don't page down, uTube does not pause, all the shows in my todo list match "new" or my one pass - everything works great.

    No, no way to speed it along. But it seems to be rolling out now at a faster pace, to new users, than it had previously. So hopefully you'll have it soon.

    Without knowing what was fixed in each v update it’s hard to tell. Clearly v9 was meant to fix the remaining bugs Tivo considered show stoppers.

    There are always going to be obvious bugs because that’s just the nature of software that’s being continually developed.

    Does the update fix either the TE4 problem with upgraded drives or the transferred show problem on Bolts?

    If you are referring to the problem where transferred shows freeze during playback, the answer is NO -- the fix did not make it into this release. @TiVo_Ted is aware. TiVo duplicated the problem on their test equipment last year and Ted thought the fix would appear in the first major release of 2019. But it did not, so now we have to hope for the next major release.

    Well I finally got it. For me the best thing is the My Shows interface, up and down (like TE3). Now if they could get rid of the other side scrolling menus I'd be even happier. I don't like having to scroll side to side and off screen to get to what I want when it would all be on screen with up and down. This was a big one for me though, saves me lots of hassle. Funny, the best "update" for me is kind of just going back to a TE3 type interface for My Shows. Auto skip is kind of cool though not that big a deal for me as regular skip is just a quick one button push. Might be nice if you are dubbing a show to a DVD, while not totally seamless would be better than having the full commercial break on the DVD plus will use less space on the DVD. There seems to be a few other improvements too, reducing the amount of button pushes needed. Which is what it is all about for me. Note, I don't use voice functions so if anything changed with that I don't know.

    Love the AutoSkip.

    Would like to be able to eliminate the list of categories to the left of the My Shows screen - will never use it and it takes a lot of screen real-estate.

    The ‘Devices’ category is required for anyone with multiple DVRs, since networked DVRs are no longer listed under All Shows in TE4.

    (I’m OK with the side panel, but Recordings has lost its value for me, in TE4, with “folders” being the only way to view the content.)

    The behavior of the pause list has never made sense to me. Shows I haven't even started watching yet will show up there. There are two shows on it right now that were recorded over a year ago. I stopped trying to make sense of it.

    Mine is always empty except the show I'm currently watching as soon as I delete it goes away. A few times I had things in there I hadn't watched and it seemed to me it was because accidently seeing some of it on live TV as it was recording. It was bugging me so I went in FF all the way to the end kept the show not deleted when it asked me. That cleared it from the list. Plus once there are no shows listed under "Paused" the catagory dissapears too.

    TE4 has changed how one can adjust the aspect ratio of an SD broadcast; they’ve replaced using the Zoom button with a UI option accessed via the Info panel.

    Is there another easier way to change aspect ratio in TE4?

    Can anyone with a Mini confirm that their Mini has the same capability?

    I could not find an easier method/key and the Mini works the same.

    Thanks. I had a brief exposure to the new Update before leaving town, and I thought my Mini wasn’t allowing an aspect change where the DVR was.

    How do you identify what version of Hydra your TiVo has?
    My Bolt+ system menu says:
    "HD menu software version:
    b-hydra-mira-4-6/2019.05.14-0927"
    "HD menu client core version:
    b-clientcore-mira-4-6/2019.05.03-0550"
    Where is 21... etc. number hidden?

    I have a Roamio but mines in network settings where you force a connection on the right side "software version"

    EDIT: Also I think the screen you were already in it should also say at the top software version too
