    My Tivo mini's both have a scrolling blue circle where the home screen smart bar is displayed. This is not the case on the Roamio. I have reset everything. Any ideas ?

    Try hitting live TV. After a few minutes hit the TiVo button to see if the thumbnails have displayed.

    I'm guessing you mean the pictures below the smart bar. I used to have the problem until the latest software. Now I have twice as many pictures, just smaller.

    BTW, the signal strength meter problem should be fixed also. See: 21.10.2.v3

    Hi

    "The SmartBar predicts shows to watch based on what your household usually watches at a particular time or day. "​

    Thanks for the response. I am referring to the thumbnails. No matter how many times I go between live TV and the Tivo main (I just tried it again ) they are never displayed - just the rolling blue circle on both Mini's, for at least a week. Everything else seems to be working, and the thumbnails do display on the home page for the Roamio.

    I have sent a help request to Tivo. The last time I did this for the signal strength display, the problem went away within a day or two.

    Since the last update I never see the BSC anymore. It was always there when I had the unit in Standby then woke it up. Those images are stored on a different server and the TiVo is trying to retrieve them.
