    Downgrading now. After buying a new mini and mistakenly upgrading because I thought I had to, we were extremely upset with the 'improved' interface. Very slooooowwww, very fugly, not user friendly, just 'un' everything. What happened to simply 'play' or 'delete'? Everything seemed to have added steps. My OnePass system was so screwed up we just stopped using it. One show, we never had trouble with, suddenly decided to bookmark every season, (17!) that we did not ask for. Then it started skipping recordings! Finally gave up on it and watched through XBox1.
    Told the family not to record anything new, and watch as much as possible, because this POS interface was going. And if they ever make it mandatory, I'm done with Tivo.

    PS angry yes, but I love Tivo. So much so that when our cable company offered it, I bought my on Roamio Pro. I was great until now...

    I don't understand why some previously uploaded recordings (sent from my video archives to the tivo via pyTivo) played fine, and others got stuck. I also couldn't delete the files that refused to play. The ability to transfer recordings ONTO the tivo is a huge need for me. THis worked on TE3 and so I'll be going back once I figure out how to backup everything (I can't get kmttg to download the one pass details)

    I have shows chosen as "recordings only" showing entire seasons in my one pass as well. Marvel's Agents of Shield just can't seem to play nice. I have it set for new episodes and recordings only but I get all seasons listed in my one pass.

    New Bolt Vox downgrading now. I took the battery out of the Vox and used another remote in ir mode.

    I liked the voice, but not enough to use Hydra.

    Was the stock VOX Remote hindering the rollback, or were you just taking a precaution? (The VOX Remote is also capable of IR mode.)

    Just a precaution.

    Okay I feel like I woke up and its groundhog day over and over and over etc.
    I had a Bolt + 3TB unit since July 2017 and loved it
    Then last week the hard drive went out
    I contacted Tivo and they offered to send me out a replacement unit at no cost, which I thought was really nice
    Well it arrived on Wednesday 8/7/19 and I was really surprised to see it was a Bolt + VOX with a 3TB drive, and it was manufactured on 8/5/19 which means its brand new
    Okay at this point I am excited, I move the M series cable card over and plug in everything and it boots up
    OMG what is this new freaking software ????
    Well know I realize its TE4 which I have no interest in running, its slow, buggy and the search function is lets say horrible
    So I have ensured my Tivo Bolt + remove is in IR mode, I have tried the steps to repeat guided setup, down arrow twice, rewind twice and then select/ok and nothing is happening
    Unless I can get this new unit to downgrade, I am considering replacing the bad disk in my original unit and sending this new one back
    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Just to be clear, it's not "down arrow", but "thumbs down" as illustrated here:
    Rollback Bolt VOX Hydra to Classic

    Thanks, yes I know its the thumbs down, I just typed the wrong text, it was in the middle of the night and I could not sleep
    I did the correct keys, but still no option to downgrade to the classic interface.
    Is it possible the TE4 software no longer has this downgrade option ?

    One mistake I was making the other day was pressing the "replay" button rather than the "rewind" button. And with Bolt you don't need to press Select (or OK). It's: thumbs down, thumbs down, left arrow, left arrow

    I've just upgraded from Roamio Pro to Bolt VOX. I was extremely hesitant to use Hydra, but now after a week I'm well and fine with it. I don't find it slow or buggy. Works fine. Give it a chance. You'll really like the auto skip that Hydra has.

    It seems if rewind twice does not work try left arrow twice. Per another post that left arrow worked but rewind did not. I used rewind on my Bolt Vox and it worked.

    If referring to this post, the user was confused as to the correct names for the remote buttons, and so wasn’t actually pressing the ‘Rewind’ (◁◁) button on their initial unsuccessful attempts to roll back. Once they actually used ‘Rewind’, erroneously referred to as “left arrow,” the rollback process worked.


    The Button-by-Button Guide to Your TiVo VOX Remote - TiVo Blog

    edit: Of course, this document isn’t without issues, even in regards to button names. Though the TiVo UI still universally refers to Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down, this post labels the buttons “Like” and “Dislike” ... which, I imagine, might be especially irritating to fans of the old TiVo Suggestions system who are now living with TE4.

    That's the mistake I was making --- Left Arrow IS Rewind.

    No, it’s not.

    As the TiVo blog document and yesterday’s posts* detailed, the ‘Left Arrow’ button is NOT ‘Rewind’; that is the name for an entirely different button on the remote.

    The OP of this thread states the correct button sequence for rollback, provided people aren’t picking and choosing their own names for all the remote buttons.

    Yes> all my TiVos run Hydra. And none of them are slow or buggy. They all have been working great with Hydra. I can't even stand the HDUI anymore when I visit my GFs house on her TiVos. The voice search alone on Hydra has been an excellent feature. It's worked very well in my use.
