How long are the ads, that EVERYBODY is seeing except for me?
Seems like 20-30 seconds
I also haven't seen one yet. I have a Roamio Plus and two TiVo Minis, all running TE4/Hydra.
I do not believe the preroll ads are on the Roamios(at least I thought I read that somewhere), only Bolts and up.
The guide ad intrusions are for all.

Well, you finally got me with one nice thing (ok, among a number ) on TE4: I just set up a Roku device and having its CEC capability is nice, so that I only need to press any button on the Roku remote to have the TV switch to the Roku device. Would be nice for TE3 on TiVo to have that capability as well, although I can live with using the TiVo remote's Input button.
Thank goodness they are still gone on my Bolt! Guide ads have never left.
Sounds like more trouble than it's worth. Accidentally bump Roku remote while watching Tivo and it switches to Roku.
It'll be essential until it one day decides to act up and not work correctly, then you'll spend days troubleshooting with no results and give up and either turn it off or stop using it, then 6-8 months later it will start working for no obvious reason.
That's my and many other peoples experience with complex setups and multiple CEC devices.
I use a harmony and have it integrated into Google. Don't use any other remotes so thankfully a non issue for me. I can prep some food in the kitchen and have my home theater fire up from the phone so it's going when I walk in.

After a Guided Setup last week my Roamio guide is clean. I still have a big TiVo+ down left on the suggestion bar. I have never accepted the TOS for TiVo+.
Except that doesn’t happen. And I’d rather easily switch between devices with their original, full-featured remotes than have to cycle through inputs to get to the correct one.
Thankfully none of that has happened to me. I’ve had CEC on nearly all of my devices and soundbar for many years now and it works very well. My setup isn’t really all that complex, no AV receiver, and CEC *keeps* it simple. I’ve had CEC on the Roamio Plus for a long time now, and it too has performed admirably. Now I wait for it to reach the TiVo Minis as well...
The guide ads just come and go at random on my Roamio. They had been gone all of last week, then came back on Sunday, and this morning they are gone again.
Did my 10 day reboot & now the ads are gone - wierd.
Ads are 15 to 30 secs when you get them and are usually done in the time it takes you to pick the remote back up. Sometimes you get them some times you don't. A non-problem problem.
Would you LIKE to see them , perhaps it could be arranged
My remote is still in my hand when the ads start. They start pretty much right away here. I need to call them again to get them removed. Since they are very annoying.
Regardless of their length its a problem because the TiVo setup I bought and paid for was sold with the promise of helping me to remove and skip ads, not insert new ones. The principle of TiVo’s move here is just as disappointing as the execution. It cheapens the entire user experience.
Got to support team TiVo.
That’s the ironic and pathetic part. They develop an AUTOMATIC ad skip for ads within programs but then go and force their own ads into your recordings that are NOT automatically skippable.

Pretty genius, if you ask me: "Hey, advertisers, as you know, we at TiVo created an AutoSkip feature that allows TiVo users to automatically skip, on recorded shows, the commercials that you paid the networks a lot of money to air. But if you pay us only a little bit more money, we'll put those same ads at the beginning of recorded shows and not give our TiVo users a way to automatically skip them."
