    Will a factory reset remove experience 4 on a Roamio? I don't mind losing everything, I just want 4 gone.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    No, a simple factory reset (Clear & Delete Everything) won’t get you back to TE3 ... but the rollback procedure linked above *will*, and it’ll include a factory reset, removing all your programs and settings.

    Losing everything isn't a worry, my shows are backed up and I have no problems with going through a complete setup. I just want 4 gone (at least until they force it).

    Thanks

    Just out of idle curiosity (and as one who has yet to take the TE4 plunge), what was it exactly that convinced you to roll back?

    I haven't done it yet, probably this weekend.

    I don't like the way the guide is. Navigating 2 hour blocks at a time sucks, I can't see a full day. It is also a little slower navigating some of the menus and getting information from programs. I like the old way of seeing a list of all 4 tuners at once and what channel they were on. Now it's some large thumbnails and can only see 2 1/2 or 3. Having some issues transferring between TE4 devices. A TE3 can still get programs from a TE4 box. The online transfer isn't working but I'm still narrowing that down to see if it's my home network causing the problem.

    When you initiate the Online Transfer, your To Do List on the receiving box should have the transfer displayed almost instantly. If it fails there will probably not be an entry in History/Recording Activity.

    Yeah, I don't see any indication from either box that something is or will soon be happening. I see both boxes and their recordings. I wish it would show an error somewhere.

    TE4 version of live guide can be accessed by pressing the up key on the remote.

    I know, but it only shows 4 thumbnails at a time.
