    Outside of really disliking the new TiVo user interface, my Slingbox hasn’t worked since. Has anyone else experienced this? Also, I was going to NOT upgrade on a Mini but it doesn’t let me. Anyone figure out a way to NOT upgrade? It seems to ask me if I want to upgrade but then gives me no other choice. Also, can I undo the upgrade on my TiVo Bolt? How about if I reset the Bolt, will I get new or old?

    You can reverse the Gen4/Hydra upgrade--there are threads here on that. Note that you will lose the recordings on your box (transfer any you want to save off the box first).

    Re: software version on the Mini, see this post. ('gist: Mini is forced to same software version as its host DVR.)

    Re: downgrading the host DVR's software...
    • Downgrading the host DVR requires a factory reset, snuffing all recordings and settings.
    • Some recordings and settings can be backed-up and restored using a variety of tools; post if you need more details on backup and restore, or alternatives.

    Need more details on backup and restore. Thanks. Also, do you know where I would find the rulers to downgrade a Bolt?

    Same instructions work on a Bolt. And you should look at pyTivo Desktop for downloading shows off of your TiVo (and then uploading them back after the downgrade). This does assume that your shows are not copy-protected by you cable provider.

    Easier to use pyTivo
