Always been 8. Looks like they just increased the font in the box itself
They did. It is too crowded now.
Nope. I just transferred two recordings. One played through, but the other froze at 40 minutes.
This updated added HDR support and I can confirm my Bolt now streams Netflix in 4K HDR. The setting is in the Video section.
HDR support has been there for awhile
Got the update last night and noticed tonight while flipping between several football games that I don't get the live TV channel. If I select a different channel in the guide (ie: going from Pac12 -> ESPN -> ABC) it starts playing at the exact point when I left that channel instead of going to the live stream. Kind of annoying while trying to watch several different games live. Anyone else experiencing this? Is this a bug or a feature?
I check my video settings weekly and I can say with absolute certainty that HDR was not an option for me before Friday.
I signed up all of my TiVo TSN’s for beta quite a while back and all of them have gotten the 21.9.2.v4 update within the last week with a single forced call or an already waiting pending restart except for one and oddly it’s the most recent hardware I own. My 1st Gen Bolt, two Roamio Plus, Roamio OTA, and 1st Gen Mini units all have the new software. Oddly enough it’s the newer 4K Mini Vox that is still stuck on 21.9.1.v14, even after daily TiVo “calls”, reboots, and even a power cycle. Go figure.....
Right; it was available for Netflix and Vudu I think in that HDR could actually happen if the TV supported it, but there was no option.
It's hard to see why an option is necessary, as a TiVo should be able to figure out from the HDMI protocol whether it's talking to an HDR supporting device. Perhaps some TVs choke on HDR and need to be protected from themselves when they get full of themselves and pretend HDR works for them.
My Bolt OTA received the update a few days ago. I'm still waiting for it on my 3 4K Mini Vox boxes that I've tried to force a "call" and even a reboot on one of them.
Sorry it took you so long but Vudu app has supported HDR for about 10 months and Netflix about 6. To be clear AGAIN. The option in video settings is irrelevant. HDR has been there and working regardless if there was an option in the video settings
I flip between channels using the Tuners option and I've occasionally noticed that when I leave a channel it gets paused. I've been seeing this problem for awhile, it certainly pre-dates the v4 update we got this week.
I *think* that sometimes it "fixes" itself...but I usually reboot my TiVo and that fixes the problem.
Thanks Harold! Nice to know I’m not the only one.
No update on my Mini Vox. Host received it on Tuesday. Host is a Roamio.
Also have the update here, on my Roamio OTA and Mini.
This update finally fixed a bug with setting some OnePass & Recording Options under User Preferences. Changes to some options wouldn't stick under 21.9.1.x.
I actually used the "What to watch" menu quite a bit and was very familiar with getting around and see what was on in different categories. Not sure this change was necessary, seems to have less filter options now. I would prefer to see each list in a grid style, that seems to be gone.
I just noticed the "What to watch" change as well. Appears to be completely redone. They killed the video window, with no option to bring it back. I'll have to play around with it more to see if it's actually an improvement or not.
I finally just got this release but they didn't fix the following issue:
On The To Do List, if you delete the final entry for any particular day, the cursor jumps next to the end of the list, many days ahead.
I forgot how I can report this to TiVo. Can anybody tell me?
Ok, one of the most important things to me is transferring (not streaming) shows between my Tivos. All my Tivos are on TE3 except one Bolt I use to test/experiment with TE4. When they do TE4 software updates I go test if I can use Tivo online to transfer shows from my TE3 devices to the TE4 Bolt (I just got the latest TR4 update so tested again). Here is what I tested this time.
Used Tivo online to tranfer a couple 3 hour movies from a TE3 Roamio to the TE4 Bolt. As usual they SEEMED to transfer ok, get the entire green bar and shows full time. BUT still does not work, one of the movies stops about 20 minutes in, the other about 30 minutes in. Frozen. Same thing as always.................
This time I decided to test further. I transferred the 2 movies back to the Roamio. And yes, they freeze up even when back on the Roamio. So whatever happens to them when transferred to the TE4 Bolt becomes permanent I guess, problem remains when transferring back to the TE3 device they were originally recording on.
I tried one other thing I have not tried before. I transferred a hour HD show from the TE4 Bolt to the TE3 Roamio. Directly since TE4 to TE3, no Tivo online needed. This time I took it a step further, once I transferred the show from the TE4 Bolt to the TE3 Roamio I then used Tivo online to transfer the show back to the TE4 Bolt from the TE3 Roamio. Guess what, it seems to have worked, does not freeze up (only 1 hour show but all my tests have never made it to an hour without freezing.) So it seems if a show was recorded on the TE4 Bolt then transferred to the TE3 Roamio then transferred back to the TE4 Bolt it does work.......
One thing I have not tested is using Tivo online to transfer between two TE4 devices. Since I only have one TE4 device.
Maybe this will help them fix the "bug" if they care, not sure how many people have devices on both OS and like to transfer back and forth.
Oh cr*p, I wanted to clean up those recordings that freeze in case they might cause a problem with the drives. On the TE4 Bolt no problem, deleted the bad recordings then permanently deleted them. But the Roamio, the bad recordings I transferred back from the TE4 Bolt, I cannot delete them. I hit delete but they just stay, do not go into the deleted items folder. I guess will try rebooting the Roamio or what is that command which resets the menu? Not happy right now, may have to try the kickstart 58? if nothing simpler clears it up.
