    I installed the most recent update a coupla weeks ago and weird things are happening. Now, my roamio is reading what's on the screen out loud to me and I can't seem to find a setting to make it stop.

    Help.

    Thanks, that did it. I don't know why I couldn't find that myself. I guess having it yelling at me was distracting even when I turned the volume down.

    No problem. My Mom manages to turn that feature on accidentally on every device she's ever used (Roku, Tivo, etc., etc.) and is equally flummoxed by it.

    It must be startling to have the TV starting to talk to you. :D

    That is called the screen reader and it can be toggled on or off by holding the A button, or under the settings menu..

    Holding the B button is for toggle of Closed Captions.

    Both of those options can also be toggled on and off when you sit on the remote or it gets stuck in a sofa cushion.

    Thank you for the CC tip; does this work on both TE3 & 4?

    The B button toggles captions? That will be a lot easier than hitting info then "captions". Thank you!
