    Got the TiVo+ crap on my Roamio OTA sometime today. As to the Guide, there's an ad at the bottom of the first screen, but it moves around as I scroll, sometimes taking two lines. That part is annoying. If it just stuck to the bottom, I could easily ignore it. Bleh

    As someone else mentioned, ads in the Guide aren't unique to TiVo. With DirecTV, though, I could set my Guide to "favorites", and so never saw them. No such luck here.

    I have to agree with you, maybe that's just me though. I have one Tivo on TE4, the rest on TE3. I almost NEVER use the guide on the TE4 machine, I just don't like it. Do occasionally use it on TE3 since I can see more than a couple hours. Seeing this in the guide means nothing to me, I just ignore it.

    I am NOT opting in to Tivo + though. The content does not look interesting enough to me to opt in to some legal document. I wonder, if someone does "opt in" can you "opt out" in the future, not sure what opting in consequences would be over time, more ads, whatever?

    What bugs have people seen in 21.9.6.v5? (besides the previously mentioned Signal Strength)
    I am seeing all sorts of strange behavior:
    1. when I try to play a recorded show I just get a generic Tivo menu and the recording sometimes plays after a minutes or so, and sometimes doesn't.
    2. When changing tuners, while a program is recording, the tivo freezes and the recordings stop
    3. When exiting a program to LiveTV, sometimes Live TV is a blank/black screen.

    I am not seeing any pre-roll ads, but I am thinking there is a preroll bug, especially with item #1. This all started in the past 10 days or so, so I am assuming this is a bug and not a system issue. Thoughts?

    I have a Roamio OTA, so I guess I won't see Tivo+ issues.

    Since updating, what I am seeing:
    1. Checking signal strength, changing channels causes a reboot.
    2. Randomly seeing 'no signal' for favorite channels when they don't end up recording and I go to see why. These channels all record typically without problems, but randomly (when nothing else is recording) they seem to fail.

    I wouldn’t be so sure I have Roamio Pro and got it last week. Didn’t think I would either

    Presumably, so much for the anticipated direct-connection facility of the TiVo adapter. :(
