    I have had my 3 Minis for a number of years. I got into the practice of hitting the TiVo button to take it to the home screen before powering-off the TV - in order to release the tuner.

    This had always resulted in the home screen with no live tv "window" (unlike the Roamio and now my Bolt).

    Recently this stopped "working". Now pressing the TiVo button when watching LiveTV results in an almost identical action as on the actual Bolt. That is, LiveTV continues to be displayed in the upper-right window.

    So did I miss an update's release notes that did this? What is the latest procedure/recommendation when you are finished watching LiveTV on a Mini (i.e. to release the tuner)?

    It's not just you.
    I noticed the same behavior recently on my 2 MINIs.

    The behavior changed with the TE4 Spring Update (21.9.1).

    You can put the Mini into Standby; or you can try pressing the Slow button after jumping to Home via the TiVo button. (Only putting the Mini into Standby prevents the Mini from grabbing a tuner during a EAS alert or test.)

    Just on3 more, of many, reasons for me not to downgrade to Hydra.
