    I have Suddenlink here in central Arkansas.

    I have a Pace MG1 (I think) and I was curious how I can tell if I have TE3 or TE4. Also which Viewers Guide would apply.

    Thanks in advance.

    If your main menu is called "Tivo Central" and it's a mostly blue/silver screen, you have TE3.

    If it's called "Home" with a bunch of large images across the bottom, you have TE4.

    So, my Roamios have TE3 and this is a good thing, right? I have done nothing, so are people getting TE4 by request? In waves? Can I put a condom on my DVR so it doesn't catch TE4?

    Now I wonder if there is a printed version of the Roamio Viewer’s Guide. And where to find one.

    Perhaps I should have said hard copy.

    I did try printing the pdf version. The first page was right-side up, the second was upside-down. So I thought perhaps the TiVo Roamio came with one.

    Thanks anyway.

    Absent a glitch, you only get TE4 if you initiate the TE4 installation process (through the on-screen menu or by pressing the VOX remote voice button).

    Thanks to everyone’s replies I know I have TE3, and was able to print a useable copy of the Roamio Viewer’s Guide.
