    So my Roamio Plus, 3 Mini Vox's, and 1 regular Mini updated to RC12 several days ago.. One issue I am now noticing is in regards to the Mini.. Previously, it was tuning to the lowest channel on my channel list after waking it back up again.. Now, that seems to have changed - but another bug has taken its place.. Now, the Mini will wake up and the channel bar at the bottom will say I'm on the last channel I was actually watching before it went to sleep, along with that channel's current guide description, etc. -- but the actual tuned channel that plays is one of the other turners on the Roamio Plus. To correct this, I have to channel up and then channel down (or just tune to a different channel and then back again). For example, tonight when I woke Mini in bedroom up, it claimed to be on TVLand (Ch 777) from last night.. However, what was tuned was ion Television (703).

    Anyone else notice this?

    Yes, I've been seeing the same issue here for at least a week. Very strange.

    Yesterday, turned my TV on, went to Live TV and the banner said it was on channel 869, Discovery. The channel being shown however was channel 818, MSNBC.

    I've narrowed it down to all Minis in the house when woken will show the info as being the info for the currently active tuner on the Roamio Plus -- but the channel actually streaming is the last channel the Mini was tuned to.

    Having same issues as far as banner being different when starting up. I also noticed if you go into the guide it indicated it is on a different channel than you are viewing..

    However I am having a different issue also.

    Many times since I got 12 and it comes out of stand by I get a blank screen... in my case NBC 4 LA (channel 704..). If I enter channel 705 it still won’t tune to that channel. If I go to 707 (abc) it tunes and the I can go back to 704 and all is good. This is if it goes into the screen saver and it was on 704. If it was on 501 (HBO) it shows picture but with the wrong banner info.

    Strange.

    Is it possible TiVo doesn't know who is running Hydra? Maybe they can't tell via the internet? This is getting weird.

    It's probably not in wide release and has only been deployed to those that Tivo_Ted had added to early test other issues.

    Yes, we have been working on several related bugs having to do with how a MINI grabs a tuner, and to what channel it is tuned. They are not all fixed in RC12, and I'm not sure how widespread we will go with RC12. We froze updates over the holidays to allow things to stabilize a bit. We should be back to beta testing and releasing new features (and bug fixes) in early January.

    I honestly don't care which channel a Mini tunes to (I often don't watch live TV from the mini to care), but the bug I hate the most is after watching a recording from my Roamio, if I don't respond to the Keep/Delete prompt, the Mini goes to Tivo Central and the audio for something plays (no video though). It's annoying as I often fall asleep while watching a show and I get woken up by the dumb audio streaming through.

    RC11 here, have seen this happen on earlier versions.

    I'm on RC12. Roamio Pro and two A92 minis via MOCA. This issue is only on minis. Roamio Pro streams without issue. Is anyone having problems streaming from Amazon? I have never had a problem streaming until very recently. Oddly, Netflix and Vudu work perfectly. When I watch a show it takes quite a while just to load the app. Very sluggish spinning circle. Once I start a show, it stutters and freezes and ultimately locks up my mini. It will stay locked up for quite a while (5+ minutes). Only way to unlock quickly is to pull plug on mini to reboot as it will not respond to anything from the remote. o_O

    Over the holiday weekend we streamed Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and YouTube through various Roamios and Minis (all A92 models) without issue.

    I've rebooted everything and still seem to have the issue with Amazon. I literally watched Amazon every night for a month and now the freezing. Scratching my head.

    I just let a Mini VOX play a recording from a non-Hydra Roamio. After it finished, the Mini VOX grabbed a tuner on its Hydra host and started showing the channel (including audio). But, there was a dancing "Hit TiVo or Live TV" on the screen also. So I hit the Live TV button and I went to the Home screen. Man, that's screwed up. RC11

    On a classic UI Roamio and Mini, I can predict what tuner will be acquired, but not what channel (unless I know what all the host's tuners are doing).

    I wonder how TiVo manages their beta program now. I used to be in all the beta programs but haven't been asked in over 2 years. I can't believe some of the issues that were missed during testing. Or maybe they were known but needed to get the sw out there for the holiday season. I suppose my bug, while annoying, doesn't prevent the TiVo from working as a multi-room DVR.

    They did send an email out about Beta testing Hydra (not really much ahead of the release, I might add).

    Maybe if they had a BETTER Tivo "QA" (Quality Assurance) Department testing, more people would become beta testers. Of course in my opinion, you would have to have an extra host tivo with not much on it...But I surely would never do it knowing their software track record over the years...Plus they never gave the option to downgrade back, for any update, especially Hydra...:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
