    I don't even know how to search this particular incident here because it's the first time I've encountered it, so I'm hoping my query makes some sense.

    I was watching live TV - Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel from 12:00pm - 6:00pm today consisting of 4 back-to-back Monk episodes followed by two back-to-back Psych episodes. Anyway, I changed the channel to TBS at 6:00pm to watch The Last O.G.

    This is when it got weird. The blue circle briefly interrupted the channel change to TBS. Then the screen showed the 3:00pm episode of Monk. I hit the info button and it's showing TBS with The Last O.G. title yet it's replaying the 3:00pm Monk episode. So I hit the Last channel button to go back to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and it replayed the 3:00pm Monk episode again. Then I clicked back to TBS via Last channel button and the same thing happened.

    So I rebooted the Mini and all seemed well because I was able to tune to TBS and catch the last 20 minutes of The Last O.G., however, it ran 4 minutes past it's intended end time. So I didn't think anything of it and decided to tune back to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries to catch the last half of the 6:00-7:00 Psych episode and guess what... that 3:00pm Monk episode replayed from the beginning again?

    I ended up doing a CD&E of the Mini (not the host Roamio) and it still resulted in the same behavior mentioned above. So I went to the Roamio and power cycled it and all is back to normal again with the Mini.

    Anyone ever run into this situation before or is this a new bug of some sort?

    Some corruption between those devices?
    You didn't state if theses are wired Ethernet or wireless? You could of put the Roamino in 'Standby' for 5+ minutes then power back up first before doing a full re-boot.

    Thanks for the reply. These are connected via MOCA.

    If I run into this issue again I'll try your suggestion. So far I haven't run into this behavior since my initial post, so all is good for now. Thanks!
