    My Roamio OTA got this update last night. I don't see any pre-roll ads, guide ads, or Tivo+. Hopefully it stays that way.

    That’s the answer I got back from TiVo support.

    This whole pre roll and guide ad cr@p to go along with my biweekly issues with the tuning adapter and horrible guide data(how many times can a guide info have pure generic info about a show instead of specific episode info?) are making me want to see how Spectrum’s world box 2.0 is(I know it doesn’t do whole home).

    MY TE4 Roamio and Mini VOX both have the software. The Mini has TiVo+. I have not accepted it.

    You'd be miserable. Those things are still beta. Literally getting changes daily and monthly. My dad had them and they're junk. Regularly the guide is unavailable meaning you can only view the mini guide, recordings randomly become unavailable. Errors that cause all channels to show they're unlocked. If your internet goes down don't plan on recording anything or being able to use the DVR because those things don't work without it. As much of a pain TiVo can be those things are worse.

    Oddly enough my mini hasn't gotten this update only my Roamio. The mini is still on 21.9.2 v4.

    Trust me, you wouldn't want a Worldbox. There's miles-long threads over at DSLR's spectrum forum about how unreliable it is, even compared to Hydra.

    If you can, you'd want something running ODN Navigator, it's the least worst option.

    But hey, Charter's still in talks with Comcast to licence X1, so maybe the whole Spectrum Guide shitshow will be moot soon...

    Same.

    My Roamio Pro got the update yesterday evening. I restarted it and now it's on 21.9.6.v5. After it updated, I did a Tivo Service Connection (multiple times) with my two Mini's, both gen 1. They remain on 21.9.2.v4 which is unusual. They've always updated to the same version as on the Roamio Pro but not this time.

    The only difference I noticed with v5 is that the Roamio Pro now shows a Mini icon when my ethernet connected Mini is using one of the Pro's tuners. Before, it was not showing this specific Mini as using a tuner. The tuner it was using on the Pro I could muck with using the Pro remote if I wanted too. Now that tuner is locked out as it should be.

    My MOCA connected Mini showed the Mini icon and the tuner was locked out from being mucked with when the Pro was on V4.

    So now, both Minis act correctly and consistently wrt the Pro.

    So far, no pre-roll ads nor Tivo+.

    It's good to own a Roamio Pro. :p

    I'm glad they fixed that. I was wondering why i hadn't seen tuner in use related to the mini for awhile. Mine usually get updates we the same time as well. This has happened before but it's rare. I checked again this morning and nada.

    Looking at my Roamio v5, and it is showing the TSN of the v5 Mini in the box and "in use" where the channel should be.

    Now that the version number near the bottom of the Sys Info screen changed to 4.8, I tried to transfer a couple of shows from the old Premiere to the Bolt.

    NOPE!!!!

    Still getting the freeze at 10 or 20 or 30 or 40 minutes into a show. It's been over a year since I was told a fix was in the works.

    I guess you noticed that's not the picture of a Mini VOX. Maybe TiVo thinks a black square is too boring.

    Both of my Mini's are Gen 1. They look like those in the pic.

    I wonder if something’s up with rolling back. My Bolt which didn’t get the latest update was rolled back with no problems, the updated one keeps complaining of “there was a problem downgrading your TiVo box, please try again now”

    The picture shows A93 Mini. I'd call that Gen 2.

    With this update the transition from pre-roll ads to actually playing the show is a lot smoother and I haven't had the "Unable to play" error since the update.

    My Roamio OTA and Mini are both still on 21.9.2.v4. Not that I'm anxious to see pre-roll ads or ads in my Guide.

    As I mentioned in my earlier post, my Roamio OTA got the update to v5 and there are no pre-roll ads and no guide ads.
