    1) Overscan issues on a a ~10 year old Samsung 1080p LCD display
    2) Also seems to be more sluggish than the legacy UI pre-update

    That didn't work for me as I tried that numerous times. Going into VUDU worked for me but the 480i and 480p resolutions don't work. Also I can't get out of TiVo Central with the back button I have to use the Live TV button. I also set a short cut using the 5 button.

    You know what they need a Hydra Tutorial Video guide that downloads to the TiVo so we can play it over and over till we all understand the exact changes etc.

    Both Roamios upgraded with out issue. Will take a while to get used to as I keep hitting the left arrow to back up instead of the zoom/exit button. Most features of TiVo Central are still there but will take time to get used to the new locations.

    Bugs that I have so far are:
    1. Can't exit TiVo Central with the exit button as I get the bong sound when I push the button. This only worked on time when I reboot after that I have use the Live TV button or I set a short cut by using the 5 button.
    2. The multiple resolutions don't work as it is stuck on 720p. I can get it to switch to 1080i by unchecking 720p and exiting the settings menu but now the resolutions just stay at 1080i. I did check to see if 1080p24 works with VUDU and it does work and this also helped to partially resolve my resolution issues as now the HD channels do switch between 720p and 1080i, but I can't get the 480i and 480p resolutions to work on the SD channels. The SD channels will stay at whatever HD resolution you where on.
    My receiver does recognize the audio changes between the 2 channel Dolby stereo and 5 channel Dolby digital so the resolution problem is not with the receiver just with the TiVo itself. These are the two bugs so far

    You can steal a tuner back from a Mini by clicking it in the tuner selection, this was not possible before that I can recall.

    Only from a live show. Won’t do it from a recording.

    Nice find.

    Sometimes ( maybe 20% of time) while watching live tv, audio stutters, hitting 8 second rr no audio issues. If/when it's corrected, I will be living 8 seconds behind the rest of you :) :)

    I found an interesting bug, when scrolling in the guide lines get duplicated onto a different channel. In some cases it overwrites what should be on the channel and in others it pushes it down. In the attached picture the data from 6-3 is duplicated on 7-1 and 7-1 is overwritten. however while 7-3 data is shown on 9-1 the next lines are just pushed down. 9-2 is for 9-1, 9-3 is for 9-2 down to 11-1 is for 9-4. I have no idea where 11-2 got its data as that is 9-2's info

    Switched digital video channels not tuning on Bolt - v52 or v53 error or just black screen. Issue does not exist on updated Romaio Pro.

    I'm trying hard to figure out if the below is in my head or not, but I'm noticing a decrease in video quality on my Roamio Pro since the update.

    I'm seeing two things I'm finding difficult to prove: 1) Video looks fuzzier and more "compressed" than before, and 2) there are times when Live TV/recording seems like it's "skipping frames", but a reboot of the box fixes it. This might happen after going into an app and then back to watching TV.

    Anyone else seeing something resembling my hallucinations? :)

    Some of you guys are so elaborate I wonder why you did not participate on the Beta

    I hate it! Plan on reverting and taking the loss on recordings. Luckily I only converted my OTA only Bolt so it wont be a big loss.

    i am fairly new to TiVo but as a long time DirecTV beta tester I am definitely going to find out how to get involved here

    Have you tried clear and delete all? Won’t work on mine but someone else reported it looks like it will work for them.

    I was for years, but after changing to a new employer, I was no longer allowed to via TiVo's rules. :(

    Upgrading my hard drive is a customization that disqualifies me/my TiVo from continued beta participation. :(

    I haven't seen or read anything that makes me think I would like it better so I am waiting. From what I see this is for people who care more about how a UI looks than how it works - at least this is what I am guessing when people note it takes allot more button pushes to do the same thing and then note they like how it looks. I am the other way nearly 100% could care less about appearance beyond how it affects functionality for all I care it could be 100% text if it was easy to get done what I want to do, which is primarily to play a recording and setup a few new one passes a few times a year.

    Ok so this is very odd. Was able to steal back a tuner from a Mini by selecting it from the available tuners on the right panel on my Roamio. And then that channel (Fox, World Series) was on both my Roamio and Mini even though the Mini no longer had a tuner. And when I changed the channel on the Roamio it changed the channel on the Mini too. So the Mini was basically mirroring the Roamio. This is actually a nice feature to save tuners but doubtful that its intended behavior.
