    This morning I woke up to what appears to be a user interface change on my Tivo Roamio. The colors are slightly different. The TiVo guy is sort of a silhouette and the icons seem to be changed slightly. Anyone else's interface change like this? I'm not a fan.

    I think yours is the 49th or 53rd thread, I lost count.

    I just scrolled though the front two pages of this forum and saw nothing.

    Just checked again, I still see nothing about an interface change or new software.

    You may want to change your profile from "active member" to clueless member. Just teasing. Since the new software is over three different platforms, the discussion is in the coffee forum.

    There would not be any message about it, so you need to look in Sys info.

    Your Roamio is now running software version 20.7.2. One of the main features of this version is that it brings the Bolt-style interface to the Roamio and Premiere models.

    The official release notes are here.

    Thanks for the info. I don't peruse the Coffee House Forum as there is way too much in there that doesn't pertain to me. I figured if it was an interface change on the Roamio, surely there would be something posted in the Roamio forum. Somehow that seems to not be the case, go figure.

    Anyway, I am really not a fan of the new menus. Way too much white. Then again, I hate all Ikea furniture too.

    Back when TiVo was innovating and pushing updates often, you would get a pop up message explaining the new features. They stopped this year's ago unfortunately and have lost their way as a user facing company, now they cater to businesses for providing data analytics and information...

    As recently as a year ago I was still getting those messages.

    Might depend on your model then?

    I like the new look, and the settings menu is now the same resolution as the rest of the UI. Finally.

    I think the white menu selection highlighting is way too bright and bothersome to my eyes. I much prefer the yellow. On my set it is so bright, that the text is harder to read. Hope they provide an option to change it back and tell us when they do it!

    Agreed. We won't get that level of adjustment ourselves.

    It's brighter only because it's white and not yellow. People will get used to it.

    I like the new interface. Matches Bolt+. Wish Premiere had SM.

    It sounds like you might have your TV 'Picture Mode' set to something too bright. Or the actual brightness turned too high.

    Maybe cycle through the Picture Mode's 'til you find one that's more acceptable?

    Hate the new WHITE look. I rebooted my Tivo thinking something was wrong with it, but it still looks the same crappy white!
    Will I get used to it, sure but why does one have to get used to something just for the sake of change.....to me the new interface looks very basic, not rich like it used to.
    Oh well, progress I guess.....
