    So far I’m seeing no changes whatsoever in my lack of prerolls after the update on my opted out Roamio.

    FYI: TiVo+ still won’t work on my pre-Vox Mini after the update.

    Yesterday morning (Friday) my Roamio (TE4) restarted twice in one hour or so. Maybe it installed v8? I hadn't been closely watching the system version so I can't say.

    I was a little worried thinking something serious was developing, however the Roamio has been fine in the 24 hours since the two restarts.

    Looks like mine updated to v8 and rebooted overnight too at 4:28 am too.

    Anyone know what bug fixes or features was in this update?

    Got an email from TiVo yesterday:

    Dear TiVo Customer,
    We hope you are enjoying your new TiVo Stream 4K. Today we wanted to make you aware of two important updates pushed last night to your device that will make your experience even more enjoyable.

    Black Screen
    Some customers were experiencing a black screen when attempting to access the Android Home Screen. This has been resolved, and you now will be quickly able to reach the AndroidTV Home Screen when you press the ”O” button.

    Ghost TV
    Also referred to as CEC Hijacking, some customers were experiencing the TiVo Stream 4K randomly powering back on a TV or switching HDMI inputs. This has been resolved, and you can re-enable your TV’s CEC if you had previously disabled it.

    These updates are just in time for a great weekend of binging the newest shows. Thank you for making TiVo part of your weekend.

    Sincerely,

    The TiVo Team

    that message relates to the Stream 4K, not the DVR software

    My Roamio has the v8 update, but not sure when it came. The one thing I have noticed is k cant remember the last pre roll add I saw. I still get the arrows screen and the box but no ads. I'm not sure if there is any correlation.

    They don’t need to roll an update to control the ads. It’s likely a coincidence.

    I had pre rolls removed because they were crashing my Roamio plus. that was quite a while ago.

    Also, if you opt out of the ads, the arrow screens disappear too.

    If you’re just seeing the arrows and no ads it just means there’s a problem on their end and the actual video ad didn’t load/play for some reason.
