    Ever since the update to 20.6.3 my Roamio can't find my two older TiVo boxes. I get error 423 device not found. The older TiVo boxes can still see the Roamio and I can transfer FROM the Roamio to the other two but not vice Versace. Has anybody dealt with this issue? Is there a way to downgrade the software so I can transfer again? Thank you

    Same here. I thought at some point I would reboot the Roamio and see if that works.

    Edit : Nope, rebooted Roamio & did not resolve. Both machines are on Ethernet. Premiere sees Roamio but Roamio just brings up the error.
    Edit : Thanks, guys. SD menus on the Premiere and reboot it. Fixed for now.

    Known defect. Report it to TiVo so they become more aware of the prevalence of this problem. Check out this thread, especially starting with this post. Re:20.6.3 update broken features | TiVo Troubleshooting | TiVo Help Forums

    As a workaround, you can transfer programs from you older TiVo to your PC, and then back to your Roamio. I use kmttg/pyTivo. TiVo Desktop might be an alternative.

    Reboot won't help this problem.

    And I believe it is part of the problems I'm experiencing here... Roamio OTA WiFi problem...

    Along with the now admitted to by TiVo intermittent network connection drop problem.

    20.6.3 seems to have started these problems rolling downhill and they are gaining speed.
