I started seeing the dreaded pre-roll ads today on my Roamio. Sorta. When selecting a recording to play you get the large gray arrow screen for a few seconds, then a dark/blank "live" window in the upper right corner. Then the recording starts to play. Unless the show is still recording. Then you get the large gray arrow screen for a few seconds, then a dark/blank "live" window in the upper right corner...and the TiVo locks up with an error message saying something like "can't play now." Only way I've gotten out of this lock up is the "quit the GUI trick" (thumbs down three times and then enter/last). Only way I got a still recording show to play was to switch to that tuner and then rewind to the beginning. I'll be calling TiVo tomorrow (Monday?) to opt out of the pre-roll ads.
