    TiVo Bolt just updated to 21.9.2.v4 from 21.9.1.v14.

    After restart, there was a message about AutoSkip being available.

    Alexa still will not change my channel with CEC enabled. There are some font size changes on the Network Settings page.

    Also, the HD Menu Software Version and HD Menu Client Core Version on the System Information page now says "mira-4-7" where I believe it was 4-6 previously. Maybe the transfer bug is fixed?

    Thank you for the post. When the release notes are put on the web site I will release them here, edited like I did for the last release. BTW, you are correct: it was 4-6

    I got this update yesterday. I don't know if I'm seeing things, but the font on the guide seems larger and easier to read now.

    I'm not having any issues with Alexa changing channels by name or channel number on any of my devices with this or the previous update, but since I didn't look back to previous posts to check the particulars of your issue, my experience may not be relevant.

    It does seem to me that they tweaked the fonts with this one, but it's also possible we're sharing a delusion. I've never paid that much attention to them.

    I notice the difference in the font on the guide as well. We can't all be seeing things lol. The font on the network settings page where it shows IP mac address etc has been made much smaller and a lighter grey. Even the text on the channel icons seem bigger and easier to read.

    The Guide font is absolutely different and a little bigger - easier to read at the expense of not seeing as much information until you waste time trying to navigate to the particular cell to see the whole thing. Kind of a trade-off to me.

    Glad to see I'm no longer the only one with these updates. The fonts have definitely been tweaked--I first noticed it in the update page, where they're smaller for the text about the most recent update.

    I checked it versus one that has not updated yet. It is larger. I find it harder to read because it is so big and crowds the boxes.

    While I can see the larger font with the guide, I wish TiVo would hold back on the dim text. I'm using a basic Roamio. I remember when 20.7.2 was released and the Premiere people were posting how bright all the text had become. It was brighter. The Roamio didn't change and there was no Bolt. Now they should compare the software on the Bolt vs. the Roamio and notice that most "side" text is almost invisible. Network settings is a good example. The larger font in the guide is probably due to feedback from older users who have their 32" sets 10 feet away. But why bother to include the network logo up with the text. At 5' there's no way you can read Comedy Central. The time is so dim, why bother? Anyhow, here I sit waiting for release notes.

    got the update. didn't notice any difference in the guide text.

    the text on the Roamio in general isn't as good as it was pre-Hydra. And then (something like) getting to show info is harder than it should be. IT's a pain doing it through the guide. Usually involves extra button presses. What's funny is the info pops right up when you hit the info button on a recording under My Shows. But if you do that in the guide you're usually met with arrowing down to get to "MOre info." And then sometimes you have to request even more info after that to see certain details.

    Also still a pet peeve that recording from the guide isn't a one button press affair. Neither is canceling a recording from the guide afaik. Boggles my mind.

    I thought something had changed. Now I wonder what really changed? LOL I too got a message this morning on the "skip" etc. but my TiVo already had that adjustment in settings before.

    I really think the marketing department is on crack. They Tweet about 10 times every day. It's usually a stupid poll.

    My cable company started using the Arris/TiVo with TE4 a month back. Now almost every localized commercial has "TiVo Experience" at the end. Today I saw a billboard with it. But I have yet to see one new subscriber find TCF with Google. I wonder. I only know two (maybe three) TiVo users on my company's feed that are members. Jed1 and me.

    Is anybody seeing this update on TE3? That's what I'm on - current version level I'm seeing is 20.7.4.RC42-840-6-840. Or will only Tivos running TE4 be updated?

    I don't work for TiVo, but TE3 has not had an update in over a year and I don't expect it to ever receive one.

    Same here. Did TiVo remove a line to increase the font?
    I'm getting 8 lines/page now, but don't recall if it was 8 before.

    I got this update on my BOLT and WHAM .. my Amazon Prime and Netflix will connect but they will not stream. I'm doing the solution to this problem that worked once before. Hopefully it will work again.

    Unable to stream Netflix and Amazon

    Glad to report that the "fix" suggested by Tivo Support in the previous situation has worked again in this situation. This time it took about 35 min after doing the fix before streaming returned to normal.

    I just tried Prime and had no issues with streaming. Roamio.
