    I just received verbal confirmation today from Tivo Technical Support that Boldt OTA downgrade from Hydra to TE3 UI does not work and is not supported.

    That's correct--TiVo_Ted (from TiVo) noted that here earlier.

    How is that possible, don't they use the same exact software?

    Then why was he not told that immediately? Sounds more like we can't figure it out, so let's tell them that.

    If software version was a factor, we would have less confusion. Although, I wonder if the last two lines in System Information have significance in matters like this.

    Just use your TiVo app on your phone and use the virtual remote on there. Works like a charm.

    I know this is an old topic, but does this still work?

    Also does it remove the ads and TiVo+ junk in the guide?

    If you mean does going back to TE3 still work, then yes except for the exception noted. Plus the Edge is TE4 only.

    Any other drawbacks to rolling back a cable card Bolt besides losing recordings? Netflix Amazon Vudu still working in 4K at this point? I’m about ready to give up on this thing with all the garbage that they’ve built into it but I figured I’d give this a try first.
