    I just set up a new Bolt (Hydra) and my mini worked (using TE3) for about 5 minutes. Changed channels and they all worked, menu worked. But of course after 5 minutes it went to the must upgrade message.

    But the fact it worked for a while is proof that it can work if Tivo wanted to let it.

    I think I'll go downgrade the Bolt now.

    and this is news?
    It doesn't matter anyway since a mini is required to up or downgrade itself so that it's OS matches the host DVR.

    Changing channels is not a full test.

    This is not a news thread.
    ("For general discussion about almost anything TiVo. Come on in, pull up a chair and let's talk about any TiVo related matters and Tivo news not covered in other forums.")

    I never said it was a full test or a test at all, I just thought it was interesting take it or leave it.

    Technically there's nothing saying that this forum isn't for smart ***** either :)
    It just strikes me as a "water is wet" thread, you noticed an odd behavior in a series of events that's transitory and not sustained since the mini will force itself to match the host, it's like the "unplug the NIC before canceling service and you get a few more days of recording"

    The first line about smart asses was not supposed to be their. I started to quote another thread with that the other day and thought beter of it and did not post it. But apparently it saves it and I did not notice. So to that I apologies, it was not meant for your quote.
