If I wanted to talk to inanimate objects I could always strike up a conversation at work.
So close to correctly delivering the line. Comedy is hard.
Just in case it wasn't another typo, as I remember (could be wrong) it's thumbs down 3 times, not 2.
Yeah, sorry - trying to do too many things at once. When I said LEFT I meant the left rocker surrounding the Pause switch.
Grateful for these instructions & discussion. Have rolled back all our Bolts, hubby can't stand small font and info-overload of new guide - it's a readability issue. We get everything we need with TiVo Live Guide style. They should offer a similar style guide format with the Bolt.
Downgrading again, this last time I gave hydra 3 weeks. Reason, no live guide, poor interface and ease of use.
The same instructions worked first time, cable Bolt Vox.
Update: All went well with one glitch. My new one passes were not showing as going to be recorded. I had to cancel them and do it again.
I was enjoying the Bolt until suggestions went crazy when thumbs were removed. I've read how to downgrade a few times and I'm transferring the recordings I'd like to keep to my PC using KMTTG. I've used Videoredo to quickstream fix and remove commercials. Can these recordings, which still have .ts file extension be transferred back to the bolt after downgrading to TE3?
I have a Bolt Vox from June 2018 that I want to downgrade to TE3. I haven't been able to get the downgrade option to come up. The reset option comes up when pressing the button combo. I've read through this thread and others a few times. I don't see the reason explained why the remote should be used in IR mode. I did switch it to IR mode and still can't get the option to come up. I've cleared and deleted everything, restarted, reset to defaults and no joy. I can't seem to find the remote for my older Tivo HD series 3.
I'll keep trying for now. I've lost count of how many tries. I might even go ack to using my Roamio instead. I absolutely HATE Bolt TE4.
Did you see the part where someone used left arrow twice instead of rewind twice. Maybe try that.
Another thing worth trying is to take the batteries out of the voice remote and use your Romeo remote on ir to downgrade.
Yeah, I did all that. Still nothing. Thanks
I bought a Bolt I ended up returning but couldn’t downgrade it until—I connected it via Ethernet, it would not work via MoCA.
I have been reading this thread for the past hour. I can't seem to grasp the "horror" of Hydra. It takes a minute to learn and I miss the live guide but what if like most consumer electronics you had no option? You know the day will come when Tivo announces "to continue to do this or that, you must have Hydra". I guess I am accepting the future rather than fighting it. Yes, I prefer TE3.
When Hydra was released, some people lost a feature they liked. They became very vocal. From that small start the anger and frustration grew. I've found many members are the controlling type. This thread (see post 2) shows the differences between TE3 and TE4. I use both.
See: TE3 vs TE4 - why do you like/dislike one vs the other?
TE4 is none starter, period. The person behind it should be fired or sued for the equivalent of software engineering malpractice. The guide, allowing simple back and forth network PC transfers, the future is better than TE4. Retire the TE4, bury it in the past were it belongs. Put it on the dusty self with Microsoft Vista. Come out with a new TE5 that returns the best and adds the rest.
I have some feedback after a successful downgrade. I was using the backdoor code on the first screen that comes up when choosing "Reset to Defaults" and it would not offer to downgrade. I called Tivo customer service and they walked me through. I wasn't pressing select at the 'Restore to Defaults to get to the next screen, thinking it would start the process without downgrading. It's possible that last screen is shown in the picture, but I was using an ipad to follow the directions and the picture was just too small to see clearly. I was following the written instructions. Hope this makes sense and helps.
I just rolled back. 20 minutes in and I honestly don't know why I did. My one passes have not taken effect. I don't know...have I acclimated to Hydra?
At least you have escaped the clunky pre-roll ads now.
Resistance is NOT futile!
Hopefully the one passes will come around. My Amazon password is not working. I'm sure I will be pleased after a day or two. Don't even have channel icons yet.
