    Almost 2 years ago I posted this. And I pretty much feel the same today. I have TE3-AutoSkip using KMTTG for about a year now and have automated the setup so it's virtually seamless ... that's not an issue for me.

    The more that things change, the more they stay the same. ;)

    My guess is, the variability feature has been there but TiVo just didn't feel it was something releasable for the masses, given its not-absolutely-simple set-ability/operation (as even some posts here by tech.-oriented people suggest).

    It is kind of humorous/ironic that it works on TE3 but not TE4. ;)

    I bought the Bolt VOX and also have a 2 channel Premier. (I used my old impaired series 2 for the lifetime deal, though Tivo screwed it up and disconnected my Premier on their first try. Don't you love hold music?)

    I wasted forever trying to get online.tivo/manage/transfer to move recordings via Wifi and via MOCA.
    I easily downgraded the Bolt (with the restore defaults under help tab; then 2 thumbs down pushes and 2 rewind pushes. They now reliably see each other and transfer is fast and easy (bypassing the online method).
    (Note that before the Bolt OS downgrade, !@#$%^&& online.tivo had kept telling me I had network errors even though the two units were on the same network and could each call home.)
    Also best to not use power saving/snooze setting.

    I like the Roamio with TE3 and an 8TB drive and all the suggestions it records. I don't think the 8TB drive or suggestions work on TE4

    What happens to TiVo Minis when you rollback? Do you roll them back too or do they work as is? If you have to roll them back, what's that procedure?

    The Mini will tell you to choose rollback of the Mini or find a different host.

    May be worth noting there can be some delay in how long it takes for your Mini to prompt you to update/rollback. Sometimes a reboot of the Mini can speed this up.
