    Mine left for a week. Then came back. I have them, but no service connection today yet.

    Not so fast. They went away for others and then came back. Mine are still here. Maybe that yours disappeared is only temporary, just a glitch they will be fixing?

    With TiVo I have now trained myself to always be skeptical and brace myself for unexpected disappointment.

    Until it’s official they actually remove these unsightly, useless TiVo+ badges in the guide, on all hardware, including Minis, I won’t be applauding or thanking them “for listening.” And they should never have been implemented in the guide this way, in the first place. At the very least it should be a user selectable option, that can be toggled on of off for display, much like we do when choosing our channel filter.

    I was thinking the same, however since I rarely use the guide anymore I really don’t care if it comes back (although I hope it doesn’t come back).
    I only use the Guide if I have to look ahead a week or more, otherwise I just use the button up for the pseudo-live guide.

    I’m sorry I’m not understanding what you mean, what is the “pseudo-live guide?”

    I’ve only been using TiVo for a little over a year so I’ve never used TE3 but I’ve read a lot of complaints that TE4 doesn’t have a “live guide“, but button up looks like a live guide to me (Pseudo), but I guess it’s not as good as TE3 one.

    The guide ads on my Roamio are gone as of this morning. I wonder if this update was to fix the crashing of Tivo+. I'm not going to bother trying to find out.

    They’ve never disappeared from my TiVo Mini and I wish they would. Especially since even trying to launch TiVo+ on this box causes a crash that only a hard reboot fixes.

    TiVo should be ashamed by this mess.

    My TiVo+ ads in the guide are gone today. Others here have seen them go away and then return...so it's only a temporary victory.

    Yeah its been a while since I have used a Tivo that had the live guide, but in some ways I like this one better anyway. Its pictures instead of words, on movie channels it shows even more because it uses movie box thumbnails(I kind of wish they would do this for the TV shows too). The only thing that is weird is that unlike the guide the channel numbers are backwards which is a confusing choice.

    I'm not happy... going to complain... I want my ads back. The TE3 folks won't be able to trash the TE4 folks no more.
