    Bought a new Bolt+ 1TB cable unit a few weeks ago to replace my failing 3tb Bolt+...

    After initial setup I downgraded to TE3 and restored all of my programs, setting etc.

    Everything has been working great for past few weeks...

    Today I turn on my Tivo and during the night it automatically reverted me back to TE4 !!! WTH??

    With all the hassle required to revert to TE3 once again, I would hate to go through all the steps again only to have it go back to TE4. Is there any way to "lock" TE3 in? Very frustrating as I absolutely despise TE4.

    The only thing positive here is, this seems to be--based on posts here--something that happens, but rarely. :( As far as I'm aware, no way to lock TE3 in. (Perhaps via a telephone call to TiVo customer support? But I haven't heard of that before.)

    This happened to me twice in a row. I gave up and just lived with TE4. I’m about to dump TiVo though for 2 hdhomerun primes to get 6 tuners. And I’ll use Plex and or channels dvr.

    How long between upgrades. It happened to me over the weekend and I hope they don't do it again.

    It was the next day after the first time.
