    The tiles on the TiVo home screen seem smaller.

    I think you're right. Seems to be more space under the tiles.

    Anyone with an Edge able to test out pyTivo Desktop? I was told the problem with TTG transfers might get fixed in the next release.

    Got it on my Roamio. Not on Mini yet.

    it rebooted to install around 4pm which the tv was in use. Not recording. Nice.

    My A95 has not received the update and there is more black under the tiles. Good catch. But why?

    That's a good question, I would think they are planning something for that space. Why do it otherwise?

    I'm on Spectrum Choice and my A95 has channels listed that I'm not subscribed for, yet the host Bolt has correct channels listed. I also have an A93 that had the same issue that seemed to have corrected itself after the update.

    While viewing the guide hit the "A" key and check the options. Change the A95 to match the host.

    My A95 mini has noticeably smoother transitions/animations between screens. I’m not sure if they’re any faster, but there are definitely more frames displayed in the zoom animation.

    Also, I also noticed that What to Watch appears to be a little different than the last time I saw it. The most noticeable thing was the animated note at the bottom of the screen to let me know about pressing the A button to change settings.

    I got the update on my BOLT, hadn't noticed much different. Will keep an eye on this thread...

    Sorry for the short answer. With TE4, the Mini has control over the channels received. With TE3 the Mini can display up to the level on its host. So if the TE3 host has Favorites, the Mini can't display My Programs. That's TE3 only. I noticed that the Mini changed its option when the update was installed. I use my Mini for streaming so I didn't notice the change.

    I updated my TE4 test bed and found the animations to be vastly improved. Even on my comparatively old A93 Mini, animations render smoothly - they're still a bit slower than the TE3 slide back-and-forth, but they're not super jerky anymore - one of the main reasons I stayed away from TE4.

    And, at least for now, the opt-out of preroll seems to have stuck - I don't get the grey arrow screen at all anymore, unlike before where it would come and then go. More points to the smoothness factor.

    It appears they fixed the issues that occur when recordings start, causing other channels to pause/not advance/start playing from the beginning of the 30 minutes buffer. I felt like I've been a beta tester for a year.
