    I'm not on the advisors panel, a part of the beta program nor was I rolled back to 20.3 (as far as I know).

    Clearly yours was sent to the wrong address. I've PM'd you mine to correct this perversion of truth.

    Did any of you do the "Why I love Tivo" contest? Maybe that's what it was for. Who knows.

    It was more than that, so let's leave it at that.

    Yes it certainly is. I also received an email about an order for a free Slide remote.

    Got the remote order email last night. I was gonna stay quiet about it until someone else brought it up. Lol. I was on priority list and had the rollback. Also on the advisors panel survey thingy.

    I got an email today as well. I was on the priority list and a member of the beta test group. Not sure If I've been rolled back. THANKS TIVO!

    Well, I feel quite left out, no email!

    BTW, most NDA for beta programs prohibit you from even acknowledging or mentioning you were a part of the beta program.

    I got the email too. Not on the Advisory panel. Was on the Priority List. I assume I got rolled back too since I had to reset all the "Channels I receive" on both my Elite and Plus. Thanks, TiVo!

    Wonder if the RF dongle will come with this?

    EDIT: I'm guessing it doesn't. When I ordered one with the dongle, it was "C00261 TiVo Slide Pro Remote w/Adapter". This one says "C00260 TiVo Slide Pro Remote". I wonder if I can order just the dongle?

    Anyone that may not want their remote I'd be more then happy to take it off your hands. :) As a brand new Tivo customer (I just ordered the boxes yesterday) I'm not sure if I will need one or not, but if one was donated to me I'm sure I'd use it! :)

    I also got the free remote, I am on the Advisory panel but never had any roll back, but I did have to re-set all my ch on one of my three Roamios about a week after the update, the software was still 24.1 on that Roamio.

    I have a $75 off promo code that expires tomorrow. Anyone want to trade the code for a slide remote? I'll pay actual shipping on the remote.

    "I am so sorry that some of you experienced receiving an email about a TiVo Slide Pro remote being shipped! There was an operational issue that caused some TiVo owners (fewer than 200) to receive this incorrect email." :eek:

    JK. :D

    Looks like a cool token of appreciation on TiVo's part for the folks that went through the hassle of the original update and the subsequent rollback.

    Ha! Maybe it's just my cynicism, but this very thought crossed my mind when I first saw the order confirmation email. :)

    I will certainly think twice about participating in any betas if they are going to promise and not give anything. I do a lot of things for free, but if someone promises and doesn't come through, then I am through. (is that correct English?)

    I didn't get any emails, Slide Remotes, upgrade discounts or anything else, other than indigestion after reading all of this.

    Sometimes it takes a while for the gift to arrive. Then out of the blue it shows up.
