    Hi all,

    I have a 6 tuner Roamio Pro running the latest firmware. Recently, we’ve been encountering a problem where the TiVo won’t rewind. If I try, it just locks up, and you have to press live TV or change the channel to continue watching anything. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it is happening more and more frequently. The only way to solve it is to reboot the box.

    Anyone run into this before, and have any idea what’s going on? I’m also having the issue where my recordings won’t play back, and I have to restart the box for them to work (related to the preroll ads, I believe). Between the two problems, I am eyeing a new Edge, but if there’s a way to solve the problem and avoid spending the $$$, that would be great.

    Thanks in advance!

    Call and ask for pre-rolls to be turned off due to those issues. It may take a few days but may solve it for you. Or roll back to TE3.

    I had the prerolls turned off, so far so good! Hoping that takes care of it, but if not, I’ll pull the trigger on the Edge. Just gotta decide within the next week or so.

    It's not the Roamio it's TE4. TE3 does not have this issue on Roamios.
