    This makes sense. I've always had the 24/25 setting enabled, but earlier (after posting) I went in and disabled 1080p24/25 to see if it would have an effect. Since then, I haven't been able to repro the odd "skipping" I was experiencing earlier. I'm set at 1080i only for now and will continue that way.

    As for the fuzziness/compression artifacts, it's very possible it's not real and exists entirely in my head since I'm looking for trouble after the upgrade. :) That said, my wife noticed it too, but certainly possible we're both nuts...

    Thanks!

    I have Automatic off and I did select both 1080p 24/25 fps passthrough and 1080i (preferred). I'll try a few different options. Feed is from Comcast to a Pioneer receiver to a Sony 4K set. I'm pretty sure I have any/all scaling/processing in the Pioneer receiver turned off. Don't some sets process the signal differently for certain HDMI inputs? I'm using HDMI 2 on the Sony 4K set.

    So I'll be downgrading whenever it's available.. my mini doesn't do live tv when i turn the TV off and back on again and when i got it to, no sound. Great! It's laughable this was allowed to roll out, feels like an alpha build.

    I did also. Force your Tivo (not mini) to connect to server again. This should work, if not then have mini connect again.

    Woke up this morning and had to reboot both minis. I was getting a Cablecard error. After rebooting everything worked correctly. Tivo DVR box was fine, no reboot necessary. Hope this isn't a daily issue. Did not have this issue prior to downloading Hydra. Anyone else experience this problem?

    I was able to get the last Mini up and running. Disconnected the Roamio from the network. Allowed the Mini to reboot and update. Then reconnected the Roamio. Everything works great now.

    I wonder if that could have to do with the mirroring of the tuner when you take back a tuner on the host, cause the same thing might be happening when the host goes to recover the tuner to record a show.

    My mini is displaying v66 No TV channels. Says its most likely caused by a problem with the cable card. Host Roamio works fine. Going to reboot the mini now.

    Edit: works after a reboot of the mini.

    Ok this keeps happening to my mini's & I keep having to reboot & then it works for a few hours at most & then it does the same thing the V66 error... its very bad especially when you have older family members... why isn't this being addressed @TiVo_Ted

    No issues for me.
    I updated my Roamio first, then unplugged it and all 3 of my Mini's updated.
    Live TV, guide, and recordings working great.

    On my Roamio Plus, I couldn't use the Plex app. It would stall and rebuffer constantly. On Hydra, smooth as silk.

    I've gotten the same error since upgrading to Hydra yesterday. I have a Roamio Pro with 6 Tivo Minis (5 Gen1 and 1 Gen2). I tried to redo the CableCard setup this morning but I still have the same v66 issue. Rebooting the Tivo Minis will help for a time and then I will get the v66 error again. By the way, I've also seen the v66 on the main Roamio Pro box as well, whereby I then reboot that as well. Thought about calling Comcast to see if they can reset the CableCard to see if that helps.

    Been rock solid for a year plus with a Bolt+ and mini v2. Swapped the mini for the VOX Mini and got the same error this AM post Hydra. Power cycle fixed it. So it looks like Hydra all around on both old and new hardware.

    I have too have the v66 error on 3 Minis and also on my Roamio Plus with Verizon FIOS. A reboot fixes it, but it's only temporary. So basically all of my TVs do not have Live TV without a reboot and the "fix" times out. I'm hoping we have an answer today on this. I'm ok with quirks of a new release, but no Live TV on every box is going to be a tough sell to my wife. She's already struggling with the new UI.

    Where is the info, instruction for going back to the old system? They said you could revert back.

    I upgraded one Roamio Pro and one first gen Mini yesterday through forced downloads and all the problems described...endlessly looping Minis, black screens, cablecard errors on the Mini, etc. I let our other Roamio and all the Minis upgrade on their own overnight and this morning, everything is working fine. Watched live TV for several hours this morning through a couple of different Minis without issues. Playback across DVRs worked fine, as did streaming from Netflix and Hulu last night on the upgraded Roamio Pro. For anyone still have issues with their Mini/DVR connections, I'd suggest doing a forced connection, and then rebooting the DVR(s). Then do the same on each Mini.
