    Truly sorry to hear that the feature is considered obsoleted in the new tivo experience. Tivo has indeed created the walled garden I will not use. Tivo Experience 4 only allows viewing of content from Tivo's business partners rather than from my own personal library. Please do not point to the mess that is Plex as neither Tivo nor Plex seem interested in actually making it function correctly. Its also not indexed or searchable by the Tivo.

    We need the capability of adding video to the tivo locally via some method. Currently there is none. If the old way of transferring from tivo desktop or pytivo is not to be resurrected, then a new method needs to be in place. Until the garden wall is unlocked, there are many, including myself that cannot continue on this long journey with Tivo. I truly hope to one day be a part of the family again.

    You can tell me I'm imagining things because that's how I'm leaning myself, but I swear that when I checked my Romio Pro on Friday I saw that it was running RC14. That was the first I'd heard of RC14. Now this morning I see it's back?? to RC12. Is that possible?

    Oops. I guess I should have read through the existing posts first. I see others are reporting rollbacks as well. Guess I'm not imagining things.

    Hello I am new to TIVO just having installed my Roamio OTA a few days ago. Everything appears to be working pretty well though I was dismayed that the Native function does not work. When I select the 3 OTA resolutions in the menu my Iscan Duo video scaler reports back it is receiving 1080i regardless of which format the station I'm tuned to is broadcasting. From what I have read here TIVO is probably working on a fix. How will I know if and when this has been done other than by frequently checking my box? Right now my box says I am on RC12.

    You will have a message saying there was an update. Then just check to see if native resolution output is fixed. I wouldn't hold my breath though. I have my TiVos set for 60P output for now.

    Same here. And my service connection hung on Downloading... so I pulled the plug. I had RC14 when I finished. Now I'm trying for guide data.

    IIRC, "Pink Screen" was fixed. I got "Pink Screen" when my display turned on before Tivo woke from sleep, so I'll be able to test it.
    However, Tivo still cannot properly detect my display. If set to Auto, it will select 720p when it should be selecting 1080i (I have to set 1080i as the only display option as Auto still does not work)

    Just got RC14. The “tiles” you see on tivo Home and the Continue Watching bar and episode details are just colored boxes rather than being filled with the show art. And the backgrounds that would show when viewing the episode details for a show in the My Shows list aren’t showing. Anyone else seeing this?

    Just received RC14 on my Mini VOX. No hang up this time. Also, my thumbnails are ok.

    Got RC14 in the middle of the night. Due to Pending Restarts, I restarted my Roamio Pro and two Mini's this morning. Waiting for the rollback.

    I sure hope this is not the "new" update TiVo_Ted said we would get after CES. Unless we need RC14 first. A gold star for communications. As if.

    Software 101: A patch release is a release of software targeting specific bugs from the previous release. That’s why they updated the RC (Release Candidate) number from 12 to 14 instead of the version numbers. If this were a real functionality update the versioning would be 21.7.3 or 21.8.0 depending on how major an update.

    I think it’s been painfully obvious (if you’ve read this thread) is that TiVo accidentally added people to Beta RC14 beta test on Jan 31st and then once realizing this took them off. This forced a rollback from Beta RC14 to latest released software - RC12. All that happened today is RC14 was officially released and is no longer in Beta.

    RC14 fixes the Channel Display Information bug that I mentioned in the first post of this thread. Which is great and exactly what these patch releases are for. Three cheers to Ted and the TiVo software engineers.

    Any bets on the RC number? I'll go with 6 plus or minus a field goal. :)

    That's the "Pink Screen", should be gone after RC14 was installed.
    Do you still get it if you do another re-start?

    Edit: Did a re-boot and got the Pink on the logo when shutting down, however, when re-started no Pink Screen, so looks like RC14 solved the Pink Screen problem. Still needs to correctly auto-detect my display though.
