    I also emailed Margret, but didn't get a response yet. I'll check and let you know when I get home.

    I emailed Margret (thanks dslunceford) - and did a system restart the next day and sure enough system info showed software b-tcdclient-quattro-3-11.2017.01.04-2116-usa-6-848

    dc fios 505 and 506 behaving as they should. recordings and buffer, rewind, pause etc.

    THANK YOU TIVO/TIVO MARGRET!

    No. VA/D.C.
    I'm traveling, but see a thread that RC13 is out...did anyone on this beta get overwritten with that, and if so, is your issue still fixed?

    My Minis are still RC7. I rather have Fox fixed then have the Minis release after 4 hours.

    EDIT: Read 17 pages of threads on the topic. Happy to learn there's a beta fix that's working, and presumably a release coming soon. I submitted for Priority Update, but am not requesting the beta fix directly from MargretTIVO. I don't want to be a beta tester right now and I'm watching FOX via the AppleTV app because of this problem.



    I've had this problem too since last Fall. I just got to trying to figure it out. Verizon FIOS in Northern Virginia (NOVA) / D.C. I contacted FIOS and they could not find any problem with my cable service. I submitted a service request with TiVo:

    I emailed Margret a couple days ago providing my TSN. I didnt get a response but last night I rebooted my box and voila I had the new software and Fox 505 was working just fine. It was driving me nuts when I couldn't replay/rewind/pause during Redskins games!!

    Isn't the Super Bowl on Fox (505 on FiOS in Washington DC) this year?
    It'll be nice to be able to record that.

    I also got the beta this week after emailing TivoMargret. Everything I've tried (recording, trick play, access from Minis) is working well now. Yay!!

    Just wanted to add that this beta is working for me as well. I appreciate everyone notifying TiVo of this issue.

    How long does it usually take after you send the email before the beta becomes available?

    If you send it now, there is a high probability you be able to download it on Tuesday after 10am PST. Monday is a holiday. Margret is great, but I think she will take the day off.

    For those waiting for the beta or RC15, however, this quickfix will at least enable you to watch 505 from Minis. Do NOT tune to 506, though, as it does not yet work and it will lock up your Mini.

    Remove 505 from your Channel List, Connect to TiVo Service, re-enable 505.

    I cannot tell you if this will fix the recording issue yet as I don't have any Season Passes scheduled. Fingers crossed while awaiting the real fix.

    Edit: FWIW, I now also get the full 30 minute buffer on live shows from the main box - Roamio Pro - and recording a live show for say 15 minutes adds in the buffer and all 45 minutes plays well. It of course shows a partial recording, so can't really diagnose if that aspect of the issue may be fixed.

    I got the new TiVo update last night. We just stumbled onto its availability, manually restarted the TiVo to get it installed asap instead of waiting for it it install late tonight.

    Version 20.6.3.RC15-USA-6-848

    Fox recording is back to normal!

    Is this problem completely dead? I have low strength / macroblocking bouncing to zero strength, then back again on both 505 and 506 on a Roamio Plus on FIOS. Tivo Support says it's a FIOS problem, but I could get no satisfactory answer about this multi-year thread where TiVo was admitting fault and sending out patches.
