I really, really wanted this thing to work. The first one I got, back in May, had all the problems these threads are about: Turning on and off everything at will, unable to maintain HDMI lock, black screen, flicking video and audio, disappearing keyboard etc. I sent it back after becoming tired of waiting for a response to troubles reported. As I continued to follow this page, I saw that some major issues were resolved; CEC, black screen and HDMI lock. I ordered another. The flicking video and audio is still present, the keyboard is still missing and apps that are less than optimum. Ive been through all the posts and there are some work arounds for these issues. Some are over my head, some involve dumbing down the audio or video, some involve becoming a code writer. I just shouldn't have to do any of that. I'm trying to wait for the next upgrade before sending this one back, too. I love my TIVO Bolt but, no matter how hard I try, I cant love this, unless there is a miracle update before my 30 days are up.
