    Well after a few days of the TiVo+ “ads” in the guide I realized that I really only look at the guide to see what’s currently on, so what I’ve done is moved every channel that I normally look at into my favorites and now I just hit the left arrow to see what’s currently playing... and no ads! :):):)

    When I view my Favorites the TiVo + channel is still there. What are you doing differently?

    I’m viewing by using the left arrow (while viewing a show). This only shows the currently playing favorites. Up Arrow will show what’s coming up (and (c) will change from fav to All to List)
    This avoids the Guide. (I’d rather view the Guide, but not now with TiVo+)

    It's not about that at all. It's about making money.

    Except the adds are their guide information of their TiVo+ service. Annoying as heck. But understandable. If ther TiVo+ service was good. Which it is not it would be ok. We should be able to turn that crap off if we don’t use TiVo+, just like we don’t see channels in in our channel list we don’t watch or use!

    Except that, I guess that TiVo thinks that if it annoys you enough with constant reminders about TiVo+, you'll then actually use it . . . . ;)

    I guess I am in the minority here, but how hard is it to just scroll past the TiVo+ guide entry?? I do have the new software and it has not even been something i have noticed. I have not had a pre roll ad yet but even there i FF at the start of almost every recording so what is a few more seconds of FF?? This is really a non-issue as far as I am concerned

    Ads on every page of the Guide is obnoxious (so much so that I don’t use the Guide anymore). For some reason I find this even more obnoxious than the pop up ads that we see on TV shows

    Having DirecTV for years the TIVO+ ads in the guide really don't bother me. Looks just like the ones I saw in their guide for many years.

    My Bolt just picked up V5 release today, and it REALLY screwed up my channel list! Well over 100 bogus channels were re-checked in the list, so I'd suggest y'all make sure your channel list is still set correctly - ESPECIALLY if you use the favorites setting for your Guide display. Remember, if a channel is checked, the TiVo can use it for recording, even if it is not shown in the Guide!

    That’s what’s bothering me. I have my guide to only show my 8 fav channels all on one page. I don’t even have the ads (yet) but it’s adding a blank line (bug?) So it knocks off one channel onto a second page now!

    Have you complained to support over the phone? Maybe escalate to a supervisor. The more people that do this, the more hope that this madness gets removed. (I'm on TE3 thankfully.)

    It took an extra day for the TiVo+ line to appear on my Mini VOX after the blank line displayed. I have a Roamio host so nothing will show there.

    ^^ I have a Roamio Pro so I didn’t think I would even get TiVo +. This did start with the V5 update tho. So no I didn’t call I was waiting to see if the ads or TiVo + actually showed up to call

    My two Mini's (both A92) got 21.9.6.v5 today. Now they're running the same version as my Roamio Pro.

    The clock keeps ticking... what really is new under the hood with this update? Will we see Disney+? Will TiVo put proper guide information for their TiVo+ channels? The clock is ticking but I don’t know if the motor is running.

    This morning neither Mini has audio, and I cannot figure out why. Romeo and both minis are on 21.9.6.v5. Any suggestions?
