    I just bought a Roamio OTA VOX and set it up and all was right until it updated. Now it has changed all the functions making it hard to use and all commands are black and white. Is this right or has something gone wrong? I do not like what it has become. Also it doesn't find my external storage I was using on my Tivo Series 3.

    How can it find that? That external is added to the S3 alone and cannot share with other devices. Removing it will remove the shows.

    There is no such thing as Recently Deleted Channels. There is a Recently Deleted folder and it holds shows that has been deleted and it only removes then for the space needed for next recordings.

    I do not know what you did to upgrade the Roamio to 6TB, but Roamio can only self-format up to 3TB, and it will be a new Tivo with nothing on it. To use the full 6TB space, you need to put that drive into a Windows computer and run a program called MSFR. This will expand to the full drive space.

    You never asked until now.
