    Problem & Fix: Bolt+ stuck on WAKING UP. Fixed it by power cycling it (unplugged the power from the back for a few minutes). Note that TiVo Minis displayed the message Can't Play/Please Try Again Later

    Question: On a Bolt+, is there a power setting that I can use to prevent this from happening? It's been awhile since I set the thing up, so I don't remember offhand if there are power settings for it or not.

    @JOSHSKORN my Tivo Bolt+ has started doing the exact same thing, typically streaming content from it to a Mini, when I attempt to go back to live content the Mini displays the "Can't play, try again later" message ... when checking the Bolt it appears to be asleep, and it hangs on "waking up" ... only way to correct is to power cycle.

    Since this is a new behavior I wonder what has changed on the system, has it recently updated the s/w, or is there a h/w problem (perhaps with detecting the disc status)?

    You may also want to disable Wake With TiVo.
